There are great ways to have fabulous, sophistocated tables that make a great impact at your event, without the hefty price-tag of fine table linens come with!
One way to bring in a spash of your colors, is to use chair tiebacks accross the table like a table runner, or even pair them with a runner as shown in the next 2 photos below. They are much less expensive to rent, buy, and make on your own due to how much less fabric is utilized.
Much like the idea of using chair ties in a non-conventional way, you can get the same impact using colored napkins! See below how Katie and Jessie used red and black napkins (very inexpensive) to bring in their Las Vegas wedding colors on top of the white table linenes, which are usually standard and sometimes even included.
