Decorating the tables at your wedding reception with tulle can help give your wedding reception an elegant touch. Tulle can be purchase at major craft and fabric stores at a reasonable price. You will need several yards of tulle depending on the number of tables you want to decorate. Some people may use the tulle to decorate gift, cake and head tables, while others may use it to embellish every table.
Cut tulle twice the length of the table to create swags of tulle on the front of the table. Drape it up and down to create a soothing effect. Attach it to the top of the table with tape, and cover the taped pieces with a small floral arrangement or embellishment.
Drape tulle over a tablecloth to give your table an added bit of colour. Pastel tulle can be used to give your tables a hint of colour, and all you have to do is cut it to the length of the table or tablecloth.
Create a bow out of tulle using 5 to 6 yards of fabric that is 12 inches wide. After you make the bow, you can fluff it up and attach it to the ends of your table using pins. It can be pinned to the tablecloth for easy removal after the reception.
Attach tulle to the table using table clamps. These can be found at most major retailers, as well as craft and home improvement stores. Add embellishments or floral arrangements on top of the clamps to hide them. Using the clamps will avoid ruining the tables or tablecloths.
Drape a piece of tulle that is 1.5 times the size of the table and gather the sides with ribbon. This will give a table an elegant look, which is lovely on a cake table. Use coordinating colours to give it a matching look.
