When it comes to finding ways to add visual interest to your event’s tablescapes, an easy and chic way to do so is to use a patterned table linen. We love looking through Instagram to see the beautiful ways that event planners design venue spaces. This month, we’re putting our focus on the wonderful ways that patterned linen can dress up an event.

Green and orange are absolutely stunning complements in this look. These patterned tablescapes provide a beautiful background for bouquets that feature unexpected yet delightful details, like orange wedges. What a fresh way to incorporate bright colors into a table design!

Classic Black and White—With a Twist

Black and white are classic colors for creating a dramatic look, and this buffet design is no different. The bold pattern of the table runner is incorporated into the food display’s design to create cohesive look. The colorful sweets distinctively stand out against modern patterns and love how the sprinkles add pops of playfulness.

If you like the idea of patterned linen but want something a bit more subtle, patterned table runners are perfect. With this look, the table is left bare to show off the rich grain of the wood farm table, and a modern looking chevron table runner sets off the rest of the tablescape. Each place setting features royal blue napkins and chevron-printed menu cards. Planter boxes with beautiful begonias and succulents complement the whole look. It’s the perfect summer table.
