I’ve got French flower buckets (tall, thin silver buckets) full of red carnations with damask ribbon bows on the handles for around the ‘stage’/altar area. Red carnation pom balls on short, glass stands (thank you dollar store! I made pom balls from whiffle balls for only $4.25 each!) on the reception tables, and red, black and white Chinese paper lanterns hanging from the rafters to go along with the red, black and white damask decor on the tables. I also have votive holders filled with red (or I may leave it uncolored, I’m still not sure) water and white floating votives. I can fill all the votive holders so the votives float at an even level, or have the votive levels staggered as they run down the table, for a little variation.

I’m still completely stumped as to what to do with the wall behind where we’re having the ceremony, though.

I know my mom wants to hang stuff from the ceiling, but I’d have to see the place again to think out logistics.
