So i am having my BBQ at home reception in 8 days at my sister’s house in her backyard (pray for nice weather!). For decorations, i basically want to use the leftovers i have from my wedding. Since i will have a few tables set up with food (its a semi potluck) i have been thinking to use my purple linen napkins as cloths to put under dishes. And i will scatter my silk purple flower petals on the tables as well. I also have a ton of my personalized beverage paper napkins leftover, so i am definitely putting those out. I am getting a cake, so obviously i am using my cake topper again. I also have a ton of laveder tea light candles i will put out where i can.
So now i was thinking about the sea shells with slits i used as place card holders at my wedding. They were a big hit. Obviously i am not doing any form of organized seating as this is a backyard BBQ, but i just thought i could use the shells to label what each food dish is. Like in front of dish, i will place a card in the slit with the name of the food (e.g., Greek salad).
What do you think? weird to put labels? cute?
here is what the shells look like with cards in them:
