I love Coral its such a bright happy color. Especially paired with navy blue. I like to wear this combination every chance I get. Its also stunning mixed with gold and pink and used to dress up a barn. I love doing barn weddings they seem a bit more casual and fun than traditional weddings. Not that I don’t adore doing traditional weddings but there is something exciting about spring and weddings and being outside that is so upbeat and exciting.
The food table is always fun to decorate because everyone at the wedding wants to eat a little something. I like to have a focal point on the buffet, and the middle is usually the spot to put it. You can put drinks on one side desserts on the other, or food and desserts, or appetizers and salads and then dinner well you get the point. flowers and photos are fun to add to this focal point because everybody will see the couples smiling faces. (this is not the finished table I had to leave before most of the flowers got there 🙁 hence the empty vases )
I’m loving that Banners and letters are already pre-made! My minds eye has the cutest letters and banners allready done and just ready to hang!! It saves a ton of time unless of course they don’t have your colors. LOL
I also have been loving the fun wrapping papers out on the market. They can add the best pop of color anywhere. Place them on top of tables use as a runner we wrapped books and boxes in it to use as center pieces. I especially love to use wrapping paper when I’m doing a wedding in a color that can’t be brought in naturally with flowers and food like navy blue or black.
Ok here is the big secret about weddings and parties. I’m all about details but most people will only remember the first impression. If you walk into an event and there is an overall wow factor then I have done my job. I like to have one big fun focal point (or two) that is special and a bit over the top. At this wedding I put my huge flowers up in the rafters and cascading down the pillars. I only had to do two pillars in the front to achieve a wow factor. With the lights and dot garland that was enough to create the casual party atmosphere they were looking for.
The sing in table that was not finished when I took this photo sigh…. Is such a happy spot to be greeted with. I painted an old potting bench with gold spray paint added Heidi Swaps marque lights and the brides photo and all it needed were the flowers and the sign in book. (p.s. the bottom shelf was used for extra wedding gifts when the table was full.
