Partial to Pintuck

So, our venue includes white, floor length table linens. At first, I thought that these were sufficient as a part of our wedding day décor. But then, I found pintuck…and it has gone all downhill from that point.

I love that the pintuck linens are textured, yet still solid. The satin sheen gives the tablecloths such a rich and elegant look, without being too busy. Since our colors are ocean blue and leafy green, I am partial to implementing green pintuck tablecloths. I personally love the celery color (the first picture below). Even though it is a bit lighter than the leafy green in our scheme, I think it will blend in very well, and will possibly be less distracting than a lime green hue (the second picture), which might be overpowering.


What I am cringing over? The price. These lovelies ring in at over $30 a tablecloth. So, I ask…is it worth the splurge? I’m weighing some of the pro’s and con’s. If I am going to splurge on a décor item, I want to make sure that it provides maximum impact. In this case, I think it might be a worthy item to splurge on, since the tables will be one of the main focal points of the reception! I am going to keep the florals to a minimum on the tables, so having linens that make a statement will be a tremendous help in the overall effect at the event.

So…what do you think? Is it worth the splurge???


  1. I love the look of pintuck tablecloths. I'm thinking the green might be too much though. Maybe do white tablecloths with pintuck runners.

  2. if you have the it...!

  3. ooh, this is a tough one! What would you have to give up if you splurged on this?

  4. could you find the fabric and make runners to go down the middle of the white tableclothe? they would only need to be 1.5 feet across or so and you'd get the same punch of color
