Today I’m honored to feature a guest blog from BHLDN! If you are recently engaged or are already married, I’m sure you have drooled over BHLDN’s beautiful wedding dresses and wedding decors. Their artsy yet romantic wedding decors are suitable for any weddings, and also great for keepsake for your new home 🙂 BHLDN has put together a great post about how to create a perfect reception table for your wedding. Enjoy!
Putting Together the Perfect Reception Table for Your Wedding with BHLDN
Whether it’s a romantic vineyard soiree, beachfront banquet, casual garden party or rustic barnyard bash, the setting of your wedding determines the overall tone for the event. Once you’ve selected the venue and chosen an overall theme for your special day, the next step is finding the perfect décor that will really bring the party to life.
When it comes to impressing your guests, start with the first place their attention will be drawn… your reception tables! Putting together the perfect display may seem overwhelming but with a little help from our friends at BHLDN you can make your tabletops the talk of the party.
Romantic Vineyard Wedding
If you’ll be celebrating your big day under the stars, use soft tabletop lighting for your centerpieces to add to the romantic aura of the evening.
Incorporate metallic details into your display for a look that is both sophisticated and glamorous. Table numbers, place cards, table runners and vases are a great way to achieve this romantic look.
For brides planning a special seaside celebration, it’s all about the texture. Incorporate natural elements like wood and decorations reminiscent of seashells to subtly enhance your surroundings while keeping the overall look fresh and fun.
Calming blue and green hues can also help to tie in a sea-inspired color palette.
There is a certain whimsical element to outdoor garden receptions; the flowers, the grass, the open evening air. Make your guests feel as though they’ve just stepped into a fairytale with tabletop décor featuring pops of color and floral details for an added touch of ethereal beauty.
Having your reception in an otherwise “simple” location doesn’t mean you have to forgo elements of glamour in your décor. To keep a barn wedding country chic, incorporate antique tableware and items with rustic finishes for effortless charm.
No matter the wedding venue or theme that you choose, your guests are sure to be in awe with tables that look like these!
This is The Little Canopy’s signature handmade paper flower wedding backdrop! It’s 9 feet wide by 18 feet tall, and it has about 600 handmade paper flowers on a fabric. The variety of flower shapes and sizes gives it much depth and texture, and the lighting that’s shooting from below and above give its dramatic finish. It took about 4-6 weeks to make since I only had after 5pm and the weekend to work on, and probably about 20 bags of hot glue sticks. You can find it in my etsy shop. Unfortunately since it’s so big I don’t have a shipping method for this, so it’ll have to be picked up in Atlanta, or you can buy the DIY listing where I ship out the flowers + fabric and you have to glue them yourself. Anyways I thought I’d dedicate this post to brides who would like to make themselves a handmade paper flower backdrop and find some useful tutorials. A lot of it is improvising, cutting petals in different shapes using the tutorials below, and just lots and lots of gluing! If you have paper scrap left over, cut it into a leaf shape and glue it at the bottom too.
