Favor Boxes as table décor: We’ve seen this approach more traditionally around the holidays, when presents are abound and perfectly wrapped boxes can be seen everywhere from under the tree to the front porch. But when it comes to bridal showers, we like the idea of form meets function. Wrapping the favors in same size ( of varying sizes) of boxes with coordinating papers is the perfect way to fill your table and add a sentiment of fun and celebration without breaking the bank. And with the unending variety of specialty wrapping papers available, from chevrons, to stripes, and metallics of every kind, you can really carry through your day’s color scheme quite easily. Our favorite vibe? Go for a one-color monochromatic scheme and add a punch of color with fancy ribbons on each box. Or go all out bold and elegant with black and white striped everything! The boxes will be too beautiful to open!

Message on a bottle: Wine bottles as décor really caught on a few years ago when we saw many brides mimicking the laid back elegance of Napa Valley nuptuals by numbering wine bottles to signify table seating for their guests. Now, the whole wine craze has taken on a new task: the entire menu! And with custom labels so readily available, the job is about as easy as can be! Or maybe only as easy as getting those pesky labels off in the first place. We like this look on long, farm style tables with a few bottles spread between every 4 seats or so. It echoes a sense of sharing and communal eating that is perfect for bringing people together at weddings.
Mix tapes are back! We can play music on our phones with the stroke of a finger, but some of us still long to pop in a mix CD that reminds us of our college days every once in awhile. Sadly for those of us above the age of 25, the mix CD is really beginning to look like a throwback and a mark of nostalgia. Perfect for couples who maybe met in the last 10 years, the mix CD is a sweet and romantic ode to the couple’s favorite music and possibly the songs that truly hold a special place in their hearts. The cool paper CD cases are just another great way to package them for your guests and carry out your wedding theme at the same time.
