to elevate your next event

Weddings. Are. BACK!

We are so thrilled to be back with our amazing partners, vendors, and clients, helping beautiful couples finally celebrate their special day.

Whether you’ve postponed once, or twice, or are simply lucky enough to have booked a 2022 date without being impacted by prior lockdowns, we can’t wait to help create beautiful table settings and work alongside your event planners to ensure your wedding is a dream that is (finally) able to come true.

How do you choose wedding tablecloths?

The simplest way to start is to let your theme guide you. We’ve written many times in the past about choosing a wedding theme, and once this decision has been made, many others follow.

Your wedding theme

In the early stages of planning your wedding? Check out these helpful blogs about wedding themes:

Once you’ve decided on your theme (or even if you know the general direction you wish to take), it’s time to start exploring your options when it comes to your wedding table setting.

Bold colours

Make a real statement when it comes to your wedding or event with bold and playful linens.

A complementary tone matches decor like your floral arrangements, and evokes energy, vibrancy, and excitement.

Bold without overpowering, top your tables with lighter shades, and add a little glamour with gold, silver, or bronze accents (such as our mustard velvet napkins or gold cutlery).

After all, we’re here to celebrate love, so let’s make some noise!

Tasteful patterns

A subtle, tasteful pattern does all the talking, sitting neatly beneath your crockery and glassware, setting the tone for the rest of the decor. Neutral colours with a subtle print make a huge impact when it comes to the rest of your table styling.

Not just for outdoor or daytime events: checks, stripes, and other playful patterns can be subdued with plain crockery, while napkins, florals, and cutlery elevate the look from casual to refined sophistication.

Here at Table Art, we’re big fans of texture.

Soft layers convey a sense of romance; a whimsical setting that is a little bit rustic and a little bit boho. No matter your wedding theme, we can help you create a beautiful table setting using layers of fabric that drape to the floor, table runners that adorn the centre of your tabletop, and wedding napkins that tie it all together.

With a keen eye for styling and a passion for creating beautiful table settings, we invite you to speak with our experts and see how we can bring to life a whimsical and romantic setting.

Black and white

Timeless, sophisticated, and chic: no wonder black and white continues to reign in popularity when it comes to all sorts of events, including weddings.

If you’re planning a black-tie wedding, a black and white tablescape is a sure-fire winner. Keep the colour palette simple or add hints of metallics to add an extra dimension of glam.

Do I need tablecloths at my wedding?

The vows have been exchanged, and now it’s time to party!

As guests clamour to identify their name on a placecard and find their seat, they’re marvelling at the sight that beholds them – whether that’s a whimsical, romantic setting adorned with flowers and colour, a sleek and glamorous black and white, or a boho setting that leans into the rustic beauty of nature.

This is the moment we are filled with awe and amazement as we see a room that has been beautifully decorated and primed to celebrate all the love within.

Your table linen sets the tone for the entire space, and is one such item that remains on your tables for the duration of your event. Along with decor such as candles or florals, your table linen is a critical piece of the event decor puzzle.

Alternatively, for rustic or vintage themes in particular, we have seen many couples choose wedding table runners instead.

A runner acts as a styling focal point, and when used on its own, creates a polished, classy, and stylish look.

How do you save on wedding linens?

Let’s face it, few of us have the desire (nor the budget!) to purchase, use, and store a huge amount of linens.

The simple solution? Table linen rentals!

For just a fraction of the cost, you can have access to our huge selection of premium table linen, runners, and napkins for your special event.

And the best part is that at the end of the day, you don’t have to worry about laundering or storing – send them right back to us and we’ll take care of the rest.

Table linen hire is a cost-efficient and sustainable way to enjoy the best quality linen without the cost of purchase or the burden of storage.
