Summer Party ideas needed
Posted 19 June 2007 - 04:10 PM
We have rented out a beautiful pavilion located by a lake ( it is MN after all)
and the picture doesn't show it but there are 10 very long newer picnic tables that fill the room up. On the far end there is a table of sorts that had plug-ins for electrical outlet that we will be using to warm food.
Soooo I need help making the tables look nice with out spending too much money. I had thought about using table clothes but after seeing that the tables are nice I am going to skip that but am looking for a way to dress the tables up. My idea is to buy thick ribbon ( about 4 inches wide) and have to run the length of the table. Then placing tea light or votive down the center. The problem is that now we are looking at 5 candle holders per table plus the cost of ribbon.
I purchased paper lanterns and am planning on hanging them up and I also have a few hurricane candle holders that will be displayed on the lead table. I am making a tree that will hold fairies and butterflies and also serve a purpose in that the name tags will be clipped to it.
Maybe this is good enough but I would like to hear what else you girls can offer up .

I remember the lake, and there was a golf course too- a great place for a party!

I think what you have is good. It is a park and i think here less is more! I love the paper lantern idea.

We went out on sunday to scout the site thinking we were late enough in the day and that no one would be there. Well I looked like a crazy stalker lady taking pictures of the tables while people were sitting on them!!

The location looks gorgeous...so I wouldn't spend a lot of money on decorations. I think the ideas that you mentioned are plenty to dress it up just a bit. I really like the natural setting, so I wouldn't want to take away from that with over the top decorations... IMO.
