Themed decorations for a wedding reception

Themed decorations for a wedding reception

It's interesting:
"I know they have both put a tremendous amount of effort in to the planning of this wedding, and can only hope that, apart from this speech, everything has ..."

Beyond the color coordinated formal dresses and tuxedos, wedding themes are another way to enhance that special day for the bride and groom. From winter wonderlands to garden party motifs, decorating in a theme is key to making the affair something personal to you and a day you will always remember.

  1. Winter Wonderland

    • Winter weddings offer a natural white bridal decor theme.

      A white winter wonderland theme is a naturally coordinating bridal theme. Decorate the guest tables with miniature fir trees laden with white snow on the branches for centerpieces. Adorn your wedding cake with sparkling crystal snowflakes. Arrange large groups of tall twiggy tree branches in tall vases sprayed with white paint and iridescent sparkles that catch the light and place them around the bridal or reception hall. Hang crystal icicles from the ceiling with white satin bows tied to the top. Decorate the guest tables with miniature fir trees complete with white snow on the branches for centerpieces. Add to the themed dé-cor by placing a tasseled silver snow flake bookmark on each guest place as a wedding favor.

    Country Western

    • Use flower-decorated wagon wheels in the reception hall.

      If you love everything country, a country western wedding theme is the perfect dé-cor for you as you party in cowboy hats and boots. Deck the guest tables with checkered table clothes and add a ceramic pitcher with country flowers like daisies and mums for centerpieces. Scatter silver and gold horseshoe confetti on the tables to add a little bit of sparkle. Locate several large wagon wheels and tie on country floral bouquets with wide satin ribbon to match the bridal party and lean them against the walls. Top the wedding cake with his and hers cowboy hats. Then set out cowboy boot candles for your wedding favors.

    Night in Paris

    • White lights in live ficus trees will bring in a Parisian theme.

      A romantic night in Paris is a wedding theme that gives you several options for decorating. Create ornate rose topiaries for table centerpieces set on mirrored plates. Adorn live ficus trees with twinkling white lights and place them around the wedding hall to give off a warm, romantic glow. Find a French baker to create a large, eye-catching traditional French wedding cake -- a croquembouche. Let the pyramid of delicate cream puffs drizzled in light caramel give your guests a visual and flavorful taste of Paris to share on your special day. Set miniature silver Eiffel tower key chains on the guest tables for your wedding favors.

    Garden Party

    • Use plenty of flowers for a garden party wedding theme.

      A light and airy garden party theme is perfect for an outdoor wedding celebration. Use an English tea theme with rose porcelain teapots filled with wild garden flowers as centerpieces coupled with rose porcelain tableware on linen tablecloths and country French chairs. Hang crystal chandeliers from the trees to bring an elegance to the garden. Create a wedding pastry structure instead of a traditional cake made with three tiers of glazed scones and decorated floral cup cakes intertwined with fresh flowers. Give your guests miniature pots with live, fresh herbs decorated with satin ribbons tied around the pots to complete the garden theme.
