Decorate long tables for your wedding reception to match the mood of your wedding, whether it’s simple, elegant or theme-specific. Longer tables allow you to be more creative with your decorations as the space is generally larger and more spread out so you can implement more of your favorite elements, or introduce several different elements that wouldn’t work together on smaller tables.
Use multiple candles or lanterns spread across the center of the table. Use varying sizes and heights of candles or clear glass containers to create visual interest and ambiance.
Place small arrangements evenly along the entire table featuring a single stem, or up to three stems each. Large, over-the-top arrangements can be placed sparingly on the table — use one for every 8 to 10 place settings. Use large arrangements by themselves or with small complementary decorations.
