Tablecloths, decorating with a layers

For a wedding reception where you are responsible to do all the decorations, furnishing table linens, napkins, etc., try layering tablecloths to give a different and fun look.

If you are trying for a vintage style wedding you could do  a long  round full length cloth first in a large soft  plaid pattern, then  a  1/2 round, soft floral pattern with a lace trim and throw over a squared crochet cloth,  last a sheer squared lace over lay hanging down one side and only cover half the table on top.  You maybe able to sew your own tablecloths or find in different stores to mix and match.

Another idea would be,  if doing a beach theme wedding, you could do a full length round floor length cloth in a solid color and tie it in with a smaller 1/2 size round in a shell print pattern and then a squared piece of netting or a burlap over it.

A surfer theme, if you are holding your reception outside, is a fun idea, black and white theme for night time using dots or paisley prints and add in a solid linen.

Layering is a great way to decorate and add depth and texture.
