wedding reception decoration ideas please.........

rosepetal2January 18, 2006

My daughter is getting married this July. It will be an outdoor country setting (pond,decking and gazebo) with the reception in a barn type building. She won't want cowboy or country themed ideas on the table. Probably mirror tile with candles/flowers etc. Have any of you seen anything nice at weddings that you would recomend?

Thanks,

Diane

I love what I call a "country elegant" look - tablecloths to the ground, maybe table toppers or runners in one of the wedding colors. The last wedding like that that I coordinated, the bride used Mason canning jars filled with daisies and greenery for centerpieces. She used semi-sheer light purple toppers over white tablecloths. She tied a purple ribbon around the neck of each jar.

I have another country wedding coming up. We will use ivory linens to the ground (round tables). For the centerpieces, she is using large flat sunflowers. A votive candle will be set into the center of the sunflowers. They will be surrounded by grape vine.

As you can see, there are numerous things that you can do to reflect the location and not look too country casual.
