Can you buy similar or matching table runners for the other 10 tables? It might look odd if 1/30 were different but if 10/30 are different it will look intentional.

Are you having dancing? A parachute may make it feel more like night time, and less like the afternoon and may get people more in the spirit to dance and let their hair down.

Normally i would suggest strings of lights, but for an afternoon wedding that might not work.

A cute idea I’ve seen done is hanging umbrellas, either right side up or upside down

Hang bright umbrellas over a patio, under trees, or up in a high ceiling for an amazing and bright look.Hanging umbrellas

You can use paper lanterns

@missbee15:  You may want to look into hiring a rental company to hang light colored drapery around the the inside of the gym to create a more romantic & soft feel.  I think that coupled with one of the hanging ceiling options that julies1949 posted would really transform the room.

Can you buy more cake plates and runners?  Even if they are not exactly the same I would definitely use the ones you already have.  Maybe the 10 new runners/cake plate can be used on the tables of immediate family or “special” guests and folks will think you did it intentionally rather than as a last resort. 

Good luck!
