Velvet on Wedding Reception Tables

Reception dinner tables are a fabulous place to feature velvet, either with jewel-toned tablecloths or a dramatic table runner. The soft and inviting velvet fabric gives texture to your tablescapes that is impossible to match with other textiles! Design your wedding napkins to coordinate with your velvet tablecloth for a great complementary look! Choose a classic monogram wedding napkin or a trending ombre design, whichever works with your overall wedding vibe.
