So my centerpieces are done, but I don’t know what to do about the rest of the room. We’re not allowed to put anything on the walls, and I can’t afford uplighting. Thus we have pretty tables (centerpieces, tablecloths, napkins, chairs look fine without covers) and a disco ball. I can put another $100-$150 into decor. I want guests to feel like they are in a coral reef setting. Any ideas?

Any chance you have a picture of the room?

@Aquaria: Hmm…. candles for sure as far as lighting, and Christmas lights can be draped around pillars but yeah can we see a pic of the room?

Ugghhh…. Having trouble with links. Anyway if you feel like typing it: Princetonelks2129.com/images/BookingGallery
idk if you can see in the pics but there’s an elk head (of course) that we’re not allowed to take down. We’re having 10 round tables, white tablecloths, aqua napkins. Centerpieces are those water filled vases (we’re doing seashells instead of flowers inside) with the color changing led light on the bottom and the floating candle on top. Those will be placed on top of round mirrors, with aqua colorEd sea glass scattered around them.

@creativeplannertobee: that would be so beautiful to have something like that. I wanted to do centerpieces with live fishies (comets, which I would either bring right back to the pet store or feed to my turtles, and of course without the candle) but my mom said hell no.

You could spray paint branches to look like red coral and hang them from the ceiling. They don’t need to be everywhere- maybe just over the head or sweetheart table.
Manzanita branches are a good imitation of the shape of coral. You could paint them white if you prefer.
