Neat Way To Add Color To Your Tables

You might remember my little problem from last week (lame vendor ruined my plans for purple chargers on our reception tables)?

Well, we've come up with a solution that might work, but it will be putting us a little over what I had budgeted for table decorations. So for now I'll leave you all in suspense, because our decision depends on how many RSVPs we get back (and there are still quite a few missing even though the response deadline was Saturday). If we have enough 'nos' we'll move forward with our over-budget plan, since we'll still be under budget on food and liquor.

But in the meantime, I wanted to show you all this other fun way to add pops of color to your tables. My mom found this in a June/July 2008 issue of a UK magazine called Wedding Flowers. Simply tie bunches of lavender (or other flower) to a lace overlay, and you've got accents of color all over!

I love the lace with the delicate white chairs, they are so perfect for a garden wedding. And I bet those tables smelled just wonderful with all the lavender!

Have you found any pretty decorations for reception tables that wouldn't work for your wedding style, but that you still love?


  1. Gorgeous! You know I love the lace and the sunflowers. Hmmm . . . I wonder how much it would cost to rent lace overlays for 50 tables, haha.

  2. Beautiful look! I may use that for a birthday party we're doing for my aunt soon!
