If you feel like you reception tables are missing that something extra to give them a wow factor and make your reception really pop then look no further then patterned tablecloths. Covering your tables in full linens or even just runners in bright florals, bold stripes or elegant brocade is an easy way to add interest to your tabletops. When it comes to colors, patterns and textures your options are pretty much limitless and if you're feeling really bold you can even mix and match two or more prints! Plus, pretty patterns can play up the vibe of your venue and draw your guests' eyes to the decor you want to highlight most. See the prettiest ways to pull off patterned table linens below!
