Let me refine the title of this article: it should be “How to Decorate a Table with Garland WITHOUT Putting Holes in Your Table or Your Tablecloth.” The conventional method of attaching garland to a table requires sticking pins into the table through the tablecloth. Not ideal, especially when the table and tablecloth are your own.
To style our wedding punch photo shoot we avoided putting holes in our cloth and table by attaching the beautiful Ruscus garland with tablecloth clamps.
The key is to use heavy duty metal clamps rather than the plastic versions. Use pieces of florist wire to attach the greenery to the clamps.
And here’s the recipe for that tasty watermelon punch.
