Hello all! I’m trying to find some inspirational photos to dress up this pavilion:
The venue will come with the potted hanging plants (optional), log style picnicn tables, while linens, burlap runners, and a variety of napkins to choose from. It’s right in Grand Teton National Park.
I don’t like the rafters and the bare light bulbs, and they will let me do some decorating.
So far I like:
#1 White lights/paper lanter combo (BTW: How does one light the lanterns? Most come without lights)
#2 White lights/pennant banner combo (This B&W looks totally awesome, not sure I can get the same effect!)
#3 All white lights
#4 Draped fabric maybe in white? (however exposed bulbs are in line with the support posts in my pavilion; would need alternative lighting; could be expensive)
#5 White fiesta flags/various sized white lights combo (looks dreamy and fun)
This the kind of table decor I am thinking: wildflowers, pinecones, cute detailed labels.
Maybe this tulle banner to spruce up the only wall?
What do you think? Which would look best? Any other input?

I like the draped fabric.

I like the lights and paper lantern combo. I also like that tulle banner you posted, I think it matches the decor you’re going for.

I love the white lantern white lights combo. I also saw once someone had large grapevine balls that were just like the white lanterns and the went right over the lightbulbs. i wish I had info on where to get them but you might be able to ask a florist.

I voted for the white lights and paper lanterns, but the all white lights was a close second for me. I also like the tulle.

Your budget may also affect your decision. The pennants and lights pic uses many stings of lights which can be pricey. You do have time to stock up at the after Christmas clearance sales.
Here’s an old post that talks about DIY lantern lighting using LED throwies.

I voted for #5. I’d make my own simple fiesta banners and add the tulle banner on the back wall. I think it would be great with your other decor ideas!

I love the tolle on the walls… I didn’t think there could be a good ‘new’ way to use tolle… I might just have to steal this idea for my wedding!
