I love this place! I don’t think you should use the deck for kids. It’s quite nice and if a kids table-I don’t think the other guests will frequent it? . Can you put some extra little tables out for munchies or punch?

In your floor plan, where is the head table? Something I don’t like about it because it’s like massive cafeteria style. I think to spread them out, or make squares to form a sort of circle so not all the people are crammed on one side of the venue at one time? Just an idea. You could place the buffet tables behind the posts maybe from the entrance (opposite way that they are in the pic?)

Is your reception going to be held at night? I would love to see little lights hanging  or wrapped around the posts. This place has major potential and has lots of charm. I love it! It’s slightly outdoorsy but covered. WISH I had found a place like that!

Hi.

We are going to have our wedding in Romania and we doing a celebration party in USA when we are back,in an outdoor pavilion. I think is just perfect.

This is where my inspiration started..green apple

I ordered this green fabric from fabric guru,and im going to do runners out of it. The patern is perfect and elegand,so Im going to cut the runner along the patern. I also use Burlap for food table and to wrap the flower vases in it as well.I attach a picture

 

You also can use burlap as runner on the main tables and will be much cheeper.The burlap I got it from fabric guru as well at $2.74/yd=60”W.

The vases I got them from Dollar Tree for $1.00/pc.I got 34 vases but Illl use them for floating candles and flowers as well.

On the food table Im planning to put Mason Jars wt candles in it-for a rustic look

 

For lighting Im ussing paper lantern-diferent sizes and I came along those “lumi loons” baloons with light in them.They look great 

Good luck!
