    I would much rather have the view while eating.  You can certainly decorate the wall if you are allowed.  The options there are endless.

    A friend of mine had her reception in a gymnasium, but covered the walls with white fabric. Perhaps you could cover the cupboards and make it seem like there’s nothing behind? 

    Here is the wedding I was talking about. You can see the draping behind head table and off to the left (although they didn’t cover the bball hoop.

    @castaway83:  That looks amazing!  I would’ve never guessed it was a gym.


    @RainStorm:  We are using curtains on tension rods to cover some walls.  It is inexpensive, and give you a lot of look for not too much investment.  I have also seen people do a “wall” of ribbons, balloons, or paper flowers.

    @RainStorm I wish I had more info, but her wedding was out of town and I had no involvement. I definitely am copying some of her decorations though!! (Yarn wrapped bottles, paper lantern spacing)
