what to put on your farm table

The decision between long, round, or square tables has never been easier; farm tables are the obvious answer! Not only does this arrangement help a large reception feel intimate, but the design options are endless. An infinite amount of décor ideas can be a little overwhelming, so we’ve rounded up some of our favorite receptions to help you figure out what to put on your farm table to make your wedding reception beautifully yours.

Jewel Tone Linens

The perfect pairing for a rustic-style reception is a rich jewel tone palette and a long farm table. Crushed velvet teal table runners, aubergine napkins, and emerald accessories elevate the look of any venue, while giving your guests that warm, fuzzy feeling!

Voluminous Centerpieces

While some choose to decorate with smaller pieces down the length of the table, others make a statement with a few voluminous centerpieces. Designing a grand display with your florist can take your take your table from farm to fabulous!

Greenery Down the Middle

These days, you rarely see a farm table without a lush surplus of greenery placed down the middle. Eucalyptus is a popular choice, but other leaves like ferns and even tropical fronds can change the tone of your whole table design.

Statement Table Runners

We’re always looking for places to add a little texture and pattern into reception styling. A statement runner on your farm table can be the root of your thematic design. Macrame makes for a boho look, black and white stripes exhibit glamour, and an intricate print can add to an eclectic arrangement.
