My DIY Reception Table Decor - Thoughts???

Recommended Posts

So after speaking with my WC and being told that my table decorations would begin at $75 per set up I decided to try another DIY project.  Below is my first try.  As a reminder, the table will be much longer as were seating 40 people (20 on each side) and the set up will be spread out a little more than my creation.  Candles will be lite at the reception and excuse the black rim on my dinner plates, all white plates will be used at the resort.

 

Let me know if I should add or delete anything...  Comments are appreciated!  Thanks ladies...

Thanks ladies!!! I was definitely going for simple and affordable all while looking nice. Reception will be inside however the restaurant is set right on the beach line and overlooks the shore. So I think I'll be fine with lit candles... All materials were purchased from Michaels with various 20% - 25% off coupons so the total set up cost roughly $99.50, saving me approx $300!!!!!! :D - White tin pails: $2.50 each @ 6 = $15 w/ 25% off paying $11.25 - Hydranger flower: $3.59 each @ 6 = 21.54 w/ 25% off paying $16.15 - Ribbon: $1 w/ 25% off paying .75 - Pail Tags: $5.99 w/ 25% off paying $4.49 - Octagon Mirrors: $3.49 each @ 5 = $17.45 w/ 20% off paying $13.96 - Candle Holders: $4.99 for 1 dozen (purchased from eBay) - 7 inch Taper Candles: $5.99 each @ 2 = $11.98 - 8 inch Pillar Candles: $4.99 each @ 3 = $14.97 - 6 inch Pillar Candles: $3.99 each @ 3 = $11.97 - 4 inch Pillar Candles: $2.99 each @ 3 = $8.97 Any other feedback is greatly appreciated!!!!

I think everything looks great!! The only thing I would suggest is to see if you can get candles that are electric!! That way you don't have to deal with them dripping at all and if it is outside and windy you won't have to deal with anything blowing out

Something else I think would look great would be napkins on the plates..........

Maybe something like that with a brown bow and a matching flower to what you have in the middle of the table!!
