For my reception centerpieces I will be using 12″ glass cylinders filled with water and decorated with decorative tree branches.
The reception site we went with doesn’t allow lit candles, and I’m not too fond of the flame less look. I love candles and love the warm feel they provide, so I’m really disappointed we can’t use them.
BUT, I have plans for the tables to look stunning anyways!
I have ordered 500 olive green and 500 rust orange 4 carat gems to place around each table to incorporate our colors. It will give the tables a rich, warm feel and balance our colors.
Instead of using traditional table numbers and stands, I will be using mini white pumpkins, making a small slit on the top, and using a rustic card with the table numbers. I think this will add a whole other feel to the room. I had never seen much of the white pumpkins until this past fall, and I love them!
Also, to include the white pumpkins at the reception, I will use a little larger ones and put them on the candy tables and such. I would like to try and carve our names, wedding date and “Fall in Love”, which is our theme, into the pumpkins. I don’t know how logical that will be, but I still want to try.
