Wedding DIY: How to Decorate a Table with Garland

Garland wedding decorations

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.

Stylish Long Tablescapes on a Budget #1: Repeat Small Decorative Elements

Long tables are increasingly popular, but the cost of filling them with decorations is not. You don’t need to fill the entire space along the middle of the table to create a stylish look. All this week I’ll be posting tips to create a stylish long tablescape on a budget.

Repeat a small element at regular intervals along the table.

Natural elements work really well for this approach, but you can use any small object that builds on your theme or the feeling you want to create.
