Does your venue have a website? Any pics of the restaurant? Or, failing that can you tell us more about the restaurant? colors? chairs? tables etc

You can personalize the restaurant with your colors- are they turquoise and coral now?

If you purchase things ahead of time, will the restaurant accept delivery for you? or the hotel where you will be staying? I have done this for convention decor.

You could use grey or turquoise tablecloths and faux coral with some candles for centerpieces.

You can get faux coral from aquarium supply stores or you can make faux coral by spray painting branches with a coral laquer spray.

Another question- are you booking the whole restaurant?

The restaurant is lovely as is. I would focus attention  on the tables. All the wall decor that I could see is perfectly appropriate. the booths and chairs are great.

Love anchors 🙂


-What about anchor ornaments or just simple, small wooden anchor cut-outs on top of ribbon in one of your colors as napkin rings?

-Do you like/have/feel ok towards model boats?  What about a different model boat for each table’s centerpiece, surrounded by candles and flowers or petals?

-Not keen on boats or want to have a few different looks?  How about buying inexpensive lanterns and spray painting them white (or just find white ones) and doing and assortment of them surrounded by candles and flowers or petals?

-A tall hurricane style vase w/a large pillar candle, flowers, and then an anchor leaning against the arrangement?

-Assuming their linens are white, how about table overlays in one of your colors made from organza, satin, or even fisherman’s netting?  Doing coordinating bows on the chairs?  Hanging mini anchors or mini life preservers off each bow?

-Draping the walls or ceiling can be expensive, but might look nice, though the pics on the sight don’t make the place look all that bad, very “beachy”.  Ask if you could add a few framed photos of your own to the walls using 3M strips?

Keeping it simple and limiting the decor to one or two colors plus white would up the nautical feel AND help out your budget.  Lots of candles (usually cheaper than flowers) augmented by flowers strewn about, crisp white linens, a few anchors and other nautical details tossed in, and you have one killer reception!
