Hi ladies so here is a DIY project that I've been working on today. I went on Dollar Tree website...
I think the table decor is what people notice most when it comes to wedding decoration. Our guests sit for a few hours (in between bouts of dancing) in front of the decorations we put on our reception tables. I am trying to find a way to make our tables elegant without breaking out budget. If possible, I want them to look expensive without actually being expensive.
These are a few ideas I had in mind to make the tables more interesting:
-Candles! Intricate lighting is always a plus. Candlelight really makes everything look more beautiful and feel more lavish.
-Silver mirrors under the centerpieces. This idea mixed with candlelight will hopefully make my floral centerpieces appear fuller and brighter. The light reflects off the mirror, creating these illusions.
-Placing favors right on the table in front of each place setting. This is an inexpensive way to make the table look more full.
-Splurging on linen napkins. Colored table clothes are more expensive than the standard white ones offered at most venues. Instead of buying or renting expensive table linens I am opting to splurge on purple linen napkins. It's an elegant touch without breaking the bank. Another idea would be a single table runner down the center of the standard white table cloth.
-Disposable cameras. Every bride has a different opinion about using these at her wedding. I've decided to do them because it keeps guests occupied and interested throughout down time during the reception. It also helps with table decor because most wedding cameras come with a nice little table card.
-Fillers. This would be things like confetti, flower petals, or other items that can scattered on the table for color and texture.
-DIYing things. It's easy to add little touches to otherwise plain table numbers or place cards.
What are you doing to spruce up your table decor? Also, yes or no to disposable cameras at your wedding?
