So, quick run down, we are getting married on the beach and having the reception dinner in the little beach side restaurant at the hotel. There are only 20 of us and we are having an infinity table. We are having a buffet/BBQ.
I have placecards that I am going to place on the napkins with a piece of coral to weigh them down. I have also bought a variety if largish shells to scatter on the table. I checked with the venue that they would be providing candles and some flowers and they replied with this…
Thank you for your email.
As I mentioned for the decor, we would be happy to offer the candles and the flowers, however they will be very simple (white candles and a few garden flowers).
For a better effect on such a special day, I would like to recommend you organize a few extra items on your side to make the table and venue more beautiful.
So now I’m thinking I need something else! I have a tiny budget left and very few shops to go to as live on a rock in the Indian Ocean!! Ideas please!!!!

@janef32: Find some branches that look like this. Spray paint them with a really bright color- one that is in your color palette. You could so them the same color as your coral if you are using colored coral.Simply lay them along the length of the table. Space your candles, shells and flowers out along the length of the table.
You can do something similar with lengths of driftwood, but I would leave it in it’s natural state. Make sure to gather it right away and place it somewhere dry so any uninvited guests (bugs) can leave before the wedding.

Thank you everyone! I may have a hunt on my hands! Drift wood is a possibility if I can find it, and like the candles in glass vases with shells ideas. It is what there is available out here that’s the problem!!

@julies1949: + 1, some unique and lenthy branches layed out centre and sprayed if need be would be easy, simple and next to nothing in price.
Just make sure your guests like each other otherwise they make a convenient wacking stick lol!

Also, Ive used a huge peice of driftwood as a christmas tree several years ago, to make it look right, I gave it a light sandpaper rub and brushed it with bleach. no smells, no insects and beautifully clean and pale, no laquer needed at all and wouldve ruined the effect 🙂
