Cocktail Table Linen Ideas

We recently added cocktail tables to our inventory and wanted to share different ways you can put tablecloths on these fun tables. You can try to match the rest of your event decor or go wild with a different theme for the cocktail area.

To create this look, all you need is a 120" round tablecloth.

This look is very easy to create. You just need a 120" Round tablecloth and a chair sash. The chair sash is tied in a single knot almost halfway down the table. Both of these fabrics are polyester, which is inexpensive and comes in tons of colors.

This look was created by wrapping a chair sash around the center and then tying it in a bow. We love these colors together. Go bold with big patterns!

This look was created by wrapping a sash around the tablecloth and then hiding the tails. Make sure you bring some safety pins to secure the tails.

The layered look includes a 120" round tablecloth and a 54" square topper.

Our spandex tablecloths are very popular. The spandex comes in white or black. If you want to add color, spandex table caps are available in a variety of colors.

Another easy idea is to attach a table runner or table valance around the top of the table to add some texture.

Super Bowl Party Ideas

Are you ready for some football? We are - even though the Dallas Cowboys didn't even make the playoffs. :(

We LOVE these ideas from Hostess with the Mostess. The Super Bowl party ideas are great and include free printables that you can download and use at your party. The Super Bowl is on February 5 at 5:30 p.m. (central).

Download and print signs for your food display.

Love the hot sauce and mason jars. Download stickers here.

This or that: Wedding favors

It is a must to send your guests home with wedding favors, but you don't always need to splurge! We've compared several popular favors with a more saving-savvy option. These favors will have the same effect on your friends and family, but less of an effect on your wallet.

Rather than giving your guests their own gumball machine, personalized bags still have the same POP and are easy to put together yourself!

While giving friends their own bottle of wine may be impressive, corkscrews are practical!

Aluminum drink canisters are great gifts, but personalized water bottles are inexpensive and perfect for thirsty guests!

Elaborate candle holders are beautiful, but might not be the best for every bride's budget. A simple pair of candlesticks will stun!

Having a beach wedding? You don't need to shell out for the favors! Sterling silver favors are thoughtful, but why not string some shells to make your guests ornaments?
