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.

Romance with Toile Wedding Decor Continues

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My romance with toile continues. Toile (pronouned twahl) table linens soften a formal table and elevate an informal setting. Mix it with striped ticking fabric for a richer visual look.

Toile, usually printed on cotton or linen, is an inexpensive fabric, so it’s great for DIY table cloths, runners, or napkins. A stroll around the Internet reveals that it’s being made in more colors than ever, not just traditional blue and black, but fuschia, lavender, green, brown, and more. These swatches are from Fashion Fabrics Club.
