One of the easiest ways to add emerald to your reception tables is through a nice tablecloth. You could even tie the color in with some green plants for a centerpiece.

If a green tablecloth seems like a bit much for you, you could always cover it with a white tablecloth. In the picture above, the ruffled emerald underskirt is poking out beneath a more traditional table covering.

When you want a more subtle wedding reception color, use small emerald accents on each table. Here, you get a dash of emerald with the champagne glasses and napkins. Mixing it with accents of black and white add elegance and sophistication to the decor.

Don’t forget about the dessert table! Since there will be only one or two of these, you can really go all-out. Cover it in emerald accents and your dessert table will be impossible to miss.
