At this point I’d cut the chair decor.  That’s going to be a lot of work and if it’s last minute I think it might look like an after thought. 

If you’re still struggling on the cake topper, look for an ornament.  You can set it on the top or attach it to a florist card pick to stick it in the cake.  I wouldn’t put anything that you paint on top of the cake, you don’t want to eat paint.

Make sure to leave room for the tablecloths to gather so they don’t look oddly stretched, which will draw more attention to undone hems.  Also consider people’s legs and feet will be touching those tablecloths, including the bottom. 

Good luck!

1. Tablecloths-nay- need a hem- do you have a friend who has a serger? That will do up the hems lickety split.

    Do you have room in your budget to buiy them? Often is cheaper than rental and for certain would take less time as you are getting pretty close to your date.

2. cake topper- you could repeat the Mr and Mrs from your sweetheart table, or use any of your ideas in your colos.

3.Sweetheart table- I agree- keep it simple so people can see you and vice versa- your bouquet, some candles and maybe a Mr and Mrs sign?

4. Chair decorations-for all the chairs or just at the sweetheart table?

5. Cardbox- you could get a square box and just wrap it with wrapping paper in one of your colors, then cut out some same size snowflakes and lay that on top- like this, or if you have some large snowflakes Christmas decorations or can find some, use those.

If you don’t want to hem, then at least use pinking shears or some other fancy cut scissors so they don’t fray and they look like you wanted them to be like that.

If you leave them long enough to puddle on the floor so you don’t see the hem(or lack of one), then you also risk a guest stepping on it and pulling the whole cloth off the table.

The birdcage would be fine- maybe attach a snowflake or something to tie in your theme.
