One of the key things that a bride focuses on when decorating for her wedding reception is the tables. This is where the guests will be sitting and dining for the entirety of the reception. The way you decorate the table will be one of the key ways that the theme of your wedding will be conveyed. The decorations will literally be up close and personal for your guests so it is important to find ornamentation that is first rate and great quality. As the winter progresses, here are some great ideas you can use to decorate your tables for your winter wedding reception.
There are a couple of things to focus on when designing the tables for your wedding reception. One of them is the table cloths. They are the first part of decorating the table and will make a great statement if chosen correctly. The goal is to choose a proper color and design for the table cloths. For a winter wedding theme the choices are likely to be white, grey, or icy blue.
These are great winter colors to pick for the cloths. For designs there are great embroidery designs that you can for the edges of the cloths in order to accent them. Some great wintery designs are snowflakes, icicles, or even snowmen. Try to choose winter designs that are fun and classy.
Another thing to look at when focusing on decorating your tables is dinner ware you need to find plates and cutlery that can match your tables. You can normally find some great options at your local department store, shopping outlet, or even online. You want to find some that will have colors and designs similar to what your theme is. You also want to make sure that it matches the other items that you got for each of your tables. Also for cutlery in many cases it will be unadorned metal but you can find knives, spoons, and forks that have matching designs.
The place card holders are both a decoration and important item for your reception tables. The first help direct your guests to their assigned seats. This allows them to be able to find their assigned seats. They can also be great decorations that accent what you already use to decorate your tables. Try to go for place card holders that show the seating cards in a prominent area. Then you should also have the holder shaped in winter themed designs that will match the look of your table.
Last but not least is the centerpiece. The centerpiece is the main table decoration for the reception table. It is up to you what you want the centerpiece can be. Some brides go with a floral arrangement while others choose other types of decorations. For a winter wedding try to choose candles and winter themed decorations as one option. If you are having a Christmas wedding, one decoration that you can use is a floral arrangement of poinsettias. You can also choose a centerpiece made up of evergreens and ornamental berries.
Whatever you choose, you should make sure that your centerpiece is properly sized so it doesn’t overshadow the rest of your table decorations. Your goal is to have all the decorations on the tables come together to produce an impressive look. This will make a great impression on your guests.
