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.

4 Table Décor Ideas That Will Wow Your Guests

Most brides know that the tables need centerpieces. This can be as extravagant as large floral arrangements or as simple as votive candles. However, what most brides don’t know is that a few more personal touches to your table can take your reception from nice to memorable.  Here are just a few ideas.

Spice Up Those Napkins

Many brides put a lot of thought into the color and material of their linens, but they don’t always think about the little ways to jazz up those linens. One option is to create custom napkins or purchase napkin holders that match your theme. For instance, a fall wedding could use napkin holders with acorns. Another option is to place a fresh flower or herb on each napkin. Not only is this beautiful, but it will make the room smell delicious.

Add Another Layer

Usually, when you choose your linens you pick a table cloth, a napkin, and a chair cover and bow. However, you can add another layer. You can use fun fabrics as an overlay to add more personality to your tables. For instance, a rustic wedding could use burlap overlays, or a colorful wedding could use hot pink overlays. One important thing to consider is the shape of your tables. Round tables should typically have round overlays, and rectangular tables should have rectangular overlays. (FYI: Reese Witherspoon recently used burlap to over her tables at her 2011 wedding. She had a beautiful, rustic wedding.)

Make It Sparkle

Small crystals make any centerpiece instantly glamorous.  Simply sprinkle crystals on the table to add an elegant, romantic flare. Best of all, crystals can help fill up space on large tables without adding more flowers or candles. You can use clear or colored crystals.

Forget the Numbers

Most venues supply table numbers. They are usually bold, black numbers on plain white paper on a metal holder or folded on the table. Unique table names can make your reception more personal and memorable. Some possibilities include names of locations you and your fiancé have traveled together or names of your favorite songs. Also, get creative with the holders. For instance, you could use wine corks or antique picture frames.

The important thing to remember is that you have a whole table to decorate. Don’t forget about the little details such as the linens or table numbers. Also, always try to personalize. Look for ways to include items or themes that are important to you and your fiancé. These are the details that will make your wedding unique.  4 Table Décor Ideas That Will Wow Your Guests.
