Hey bees, lets post our decor! I have done a lot of DIY and just had my appt with our decor/wedding planner a few weeks ago to decide what we will do for our tables and such. I’ll just post a few pics.
Has anyone else figured this out? Lets see some pics!! <3
Here I am in my dress so you can see the mood of our black and red chinese themed wedding…
Here are my DIY Bouts…

Umm can any see all the other stuff posted? And I totally shrunk those! I am so sorry!

I can just see the dress, table and bout did other pics get eaten?
Your bouts turned out really great 😀
So far I have only really managed to get the paper things done decor wise, waiting on some lanterns to come in and still slowly collecting mismatched glassware (vases/mason jars)
These are our table numbers (#’s 8-10 are yet to be done)
the tables will also have one or maybe two I <3 spy cards for the guests to go over, as well as the centrepieces which I am hoping to be kind of mis-matchy wildflowers in vases/ mason jars of varying height/size.

Hanging paper hearts^
I spy game^ there will be one on each table
some other paper signs I did here in this other thread
Table mock up (minus flowers/i spy/ plates etc) ^
We’re thinking about laying some flowers along/tucked into the drift wood pieces instead of traditional centrepieces.
I have a few other things in mind, like maybe tissue paper poofs as well as a few more wooden game signs to make but I think the decor is pretty tackled 🙂

Love your decor!
I am having a barn wedding and doing similar table numbers, also using a barn board piece as a runner for our tables with mason jars down them! I found a barn that fell down and rummaged through it for all the barn board I could ever need!

Fun thread! Love the driftwood and the dramatic black and red!
Ivory tablecloths with silver crinkle runners on 8ft banquet tables. I really wanted a more linen/cotton runners but they were cost and labor prohibitive.
Table decor will be assorted milkglass vases, votives, 2 luminaries in a silver vine pattern, and assorted clear vases with an over-abundance of all white flowers.
Hanging all white paper lanterns and white christmas lights.
Probably put the favors on the tables since plates and such will be over with the buffet so the tables will be fairly empty.
We have white garden chairs, no sashes.
It will all be under a tent with the same view as below, so I am trying to keep it simple and but elegant; I don’t want to compete with the view.
I am moreso excited about the ceremony decor. To me, the ceremony is THE important part of the day. I want the reception to be fun and look nice, too, but the entire focus is on the vows to me because it’s the reason for the day!
White birch pergola in this sort of shape (pic from another bee).
Hanging mercury glass votives with white flowers in them. The smaller size will hang at interval heights off the arch, and I’ll have a shepherd hook with the larger size at the end of every other seating row.
Seating will be hay bales covered in plain white polyester.
The view that will make all my decor moot:

Oh man, I wish I could get that birch thingie!

That pergola is WAY cool. We’re thinking about doing a smaller version out of limbed-up branches from our yard–we have to do our final on-site visit yet to see how the venue grounds have held up with all the rain we’ve had (we’re expecting the river to be much higher than normal) and make the final decision on the ceremony location (as we’ve been told there is apparently a gazebo on-site, though we never saw it before).
thanks! We thought about doing barn board, but don’t have ready access to any, so we’re going with driftwood (since there is an over abundance in our area) — we just have to make sure to put them in garbage bags, add carbon monoxide (easiest done by putting the bags over the end of a running car exhaust) and freeze them for 3 days to kill any bugs taking up residence before using them or the tables will be COVERED in ants an beetles (which, would be really really gross).

this is a mock up of my wishing tree table, as I am getting married overseas I had to improvise with bits I had a round the house to hold the paper etc so it is not an exact moch up, also my wishing tree is in Canada so it is not in the picture
what do you think?

love the tissue poofs! And the dots/circle bunting is cute, never seen one done in that style before 🙂

I’ll play. We’re going for a vintage theme. Colors are navy blue and ivory with gold touches and the groomsman are wearing brown (b/c that’s what Fiance wants).
DIY button boutonnieres:
Birdcage card holder and guest book sign:
Table setup will be similar – vintage books and vintage bottles filled with dried globe thistle, dahlias and button poms. I also have some wood signs with sayings on them.
Paper flowers – still haven’t decided for sure where I’ll use these. Maybe string them and hang them…otherwise scatter on some tables.
Vintage photos on display:
DIY crackle finish “We Do” letters for the cake table:
Banner to hang across the head table:

@milesbella: I vote string and hang! They’re so pretty and I think that would be such a charming and subtley dramatic effect. (edit- HA! I didn’t even notice your wedding date. The more the merrier!)

@emskins: how did you make the circle banner on the front of the table?!
Post # 16
@missmouse-thanks! and i LOVE the hanging hearts
@milesbella-love your bouts! Also love the ‘it started with a kiss’ banner
@M.Ruder-The circle banner is just card stock I punched with circle punches in various sizes and then attached to ribbon. Our wedding has a circle theme running through it so I thought it would work well. I originally came up with this idea to decorate our house for my daughters 1st birthday, it looked soo nice I thought we would use it for the wedding too…shame they are different colours as I had to spend another evening punching out the wedding colours!
