Embellish Your White Banquet Tablecloths for Under $12

Upgrade your venue’s white tablecloths with affordable accents!

Looking through bridal forums and scouring Pinterest for the best decorating tips for your big day? We hear you! Don’t drive yourself mad trying to enliven white polyester linens – we have you covered.

The typical wedding forum bride’s venue choices tend to be ballrooms, halls, and lodges. These type of venues are likely to include their plain white polyester house linens as part of the rental package. We understand it can be tough to justify buying more linens when you’ve already paid to rent perfectly functional linens…but an entire venue filled with blank white banquet tablecloths can look pretty bleak, which is why most bride’s opt to enhance their table decor beyond the basic package.

 

5 Ways to Upgrade Your White Banquet Tablecloths

There are a few tricks to add extra pizzaz to your plain white banquet tablecloths without costing you a fortune. I’ve put together five different linen looks for under $12 per table – that’s less than a meal when eating out! Each look is centered around standard white polyester table linens with all of the accessories you need to make your tablescape shine.

When you’re searching for a way to inexpensively add a pop of color to your white banquet tablecloths, organza may seem like a great solution. However, organza may not be the best solution. While organza is beautiful and appropriate for some events, organza’s sheer properties will not be add the touch of color you’re looking for. Luckily, there are opaque alternatives to organza with only a slightly higher price point! For this first look for under $12 I used a 90″x90″ table overlay in our beautiful, durable taffeta. Lamour napkins are also a fantastic way to incorporate more color into your reception day decor!
