Power of Pattern

Centerpieces are something I love obsessing over even still in post wedding life. I may never wear a wedding dress again (OK to be fair I didn't really the first time) but centerpieces and pretty tables can be a part of my life going forward. And rightly so.

This Atlanta wedding captured by Heidi of Our Labor of Love really shows a truth of the table display. If you have a beautiful (and often way more expensive in the case of a wedding) table cloth, you need less on the table top to have the table seem full.

Round tables can be tricky. It takes a lot to make round tables feel fully decorated. Rectangular tables work well with a single flower every couple of feet. The length of the table makes it feel like a wonderfully complete design. Looking at this wedding, I'm realizing maybe it'd be less expensive to rent the ornate table clothes and then spend way less money on fancy center pieces. Because you have the lushness of pattern, you don't need as much up top.
