I need some help! The wall behind our head table at the reception is an ugly gray cinder block and I need some help on what I could do to decorate. I am not allowed to hang anything on the walls and I don’t like the look of the trellace covered with tulle that they provide. I thought about uplighting but when I got a quote it was $500 for 5 lights! Anyone who has any ideas, I would so appreciate it!

perhaps a few elegant folding screens ?

Can you have open flames? if you can, maybe consider krissybee’s idea with candles lit behind the screen to add a hint of warmth. Will your reception be at night or have a dimmed setting? if so, this could be a great way to light up/cover that dull gray wall on the cheap!

I think the screen is a great idea. I found some for fairly cheap on Craig’s List so you might try that venue.

I’ve seen people place ornate headboards behind the head table- of course this depends on the size of the headboard and what the footing of it is like.
