We do get excited to have a long table to work with! There’s something very special about being able to create a beautiful focal point that dresses the whole room at the same time as it decorates the table.
Long tables have always been popular for events with a contemporary feel, and they are becoming more popular for weddings every year. As well as creating pretty symmetry down the room, they also feel like a more informal, intimate and inclusive way to seat guests.
It can be more costly to dress long tables if you are looking for a continuous runner of flowers, or to repeat tall designs at regular intervals – which is a factor to consider. However, there are also budget ways to achieve impact through the repetition of flowers or plants and candles down the table, and simplicity works very well for this – any decoration will always become more than the sum of its parts!
