How to Decorate Your Reception Tables with Chiffon Table Runners and Linens

Chiffon table runners are the most popular gauzy linen for brides and event planners. Their soft flow and lustrous sheen instantly adds a touch of romance and exquisite elegance.

Timeless is now trending. If you have been pining over these dreamy runners you are in luck! CV Linens is launching a captivating new line of chiffon fabrics to make your special day a red carpet-worthy affair. Read on as we share how to create a stunning table using chiffon. Plus, learn the key ways to distinguish chiffon from organza!

The Foundation for Success

When it comes to decorating your reception tables the magical effect doesn’t always come from the obvious factors. Truly, it’s not the flowers, the centerpieces, or the favors. It’s not even the mouthwatering desserts or ambient lighting that set the scene. While these aspects are important, they won’t do any good if you don’t first lay the foundation for their success. Just like building a house, the foundation is what makes everything come together. The proper linens act to visually anchor your table while bringing together your decorative touches for a cohesive look.

How to Use Chiffon Table Runners

Your guests will spend a significant portion of your wedding seated, so provide them with something lovely to admire. Table runners are no longer drab strips of cloth used merely as a base for your centerpieces. The upscale and glamorous vibe of the modern table runner makes for an effortless way to dress up any table. These foundational linens fill out the space and complement the aesthetic of your tablescape with upmost grace. With the allure of a chiffon table runner, you can even forgo tablecloths entirely or use as a textural accent. The sky is the limit on the level of romance you can create when decorating with our wholesale chiffon linens.

Decorating with Chiffon Tablecloths

Chiffon’s sheer, lightweight appeal makes it an enduring fabric choice when decorating your buffet, dessert, or guest tables. However, chiffon by nature is little more transparent than other materials. As such, it’s most commonly used as an accent fabric or table overlay used atop an opaque tablecloth. When it comes to coordinating your centerpieces with chiffon, there are no real rules as this fabric is highly versatile. Chiffon creates a truly breathtaking ambiance with anything from candle holders and lanterns to floral arrangements and kissing balls.

Wow Guests with Chiffon Chair Sashes

The fluid drape and luxurious sheen of chiffon effortlessly transforms any chair into a seat fit for royalty. A chiffon chair sash is highly elegant when tied alone around a chic Chiavari chair. You can also pair these appealing beauties with coordinating chair covers to make seating your guests a regal affair. With a pop of color and alluring texture, now every chair can coordinate with the event’s magical ambiance.

How to Tell the Difference Between an Organza and Chiffon

While fabric types and concepts are rich and diverse, to the untrained eye, chiffon and organza appear very similar. So how can you tell the difference between these two seemingly similar fabrics? The unique traits between these two sheer materials are largely in the weave, or finish, of the fabric.

Chiffon is much more free flowing, providing that ideal drape, whereas organza is more structured. Chiffon can also be very soft to the touch while still adhering to a certain standard of thickness. On the other hand, organza’s thickness varies widely in terms of its structural uses.

When it comes to appearance, this is where you can really tell the difference. Chiffon possesses a sheen that attracts the light, while organza is of a more refined matte. When it comes down to it, each of these materials claims their own distinct characteristics. As such, their use depends upon the specific needs and desired effects of your event.
