12 Memorable Outdoor Wedding High-top Table Decor Suggestions

High-top tables – also known as cocktail tables – are the perfect addition to your outdoor wedding reception space for functionality and aesthetic purposes.

Here comes the bride!

Here at The Gardens of Castle Rock, we provide the high-top tables, you bring the pizazz!

Here are some helpful tips for fashioning your Gardens High-Top Tables:

Outdoor-Hardy Centerpieces We’ve seen flowers, twinkle lights, and pictures (you name it!) adorning the center of our high-top tables. Centerpieces help tell your story and create a vibe at your outdoor wedding reception; however, we also embrace mother nature here at The Gardens. We recommend that your centerpieces be outdoor hardy (heavy, low center of gravity, not too tall, ready to withstand wind).

Floor Length Tablecloths Utilizing a 120″+ round cloth linens covers the legs of each high-top table and creates an aesthetically pleasing look. Choose a 120″ round linen if you want it to nearly touch the ground or 132″ round linen if you want a billowing, overflowing look that will cover the legs. We recommend not going any bigger, otherwise your guests may face a tripping hazard.

Sashed Linens All linens should be tightly fastened mid-way down when hosting an outdoor wedding and there are so many unique ideas to integrate sashes! Check out the photos below for some cool ideas. We recommend testing out the sash to make sure it’s easy to tie and then stays fastened.

Round not Rectangular It may be tempting to reuse the white rectangular linens from your cousin’s wedding, but they do not drape correctly and look quite silly with open gaps on the side… Trust us!

Choose Fabric that’s Fireproof No birthday party plastic linens here! Non-flammable fabric is the best and only choice to create an elegant and safe reception space.
