Over the years my love for long, rectangular banquet tables have grown more and more. Not only do long tables allow for more intimacy among guests, but they also add some edge to your wedding reception decor. On their own, they give a dramatic effect and sense of royalty to the event design but when mixed with rounds or square tables they create a unique visual effect. The lengthy surface allows for many decor options like flower arrangements of varying heights and table runners for additional color and texture. Whether your theme is vintage, modern or classic, the result is always stunning, elegant and practical.
One of the reasons I love this time of the year is because I get to catch up on all the fun DIY projects that I’ve been holding off during the busy wedding season. These glitter snow globes are a great project that can be easily done all year round and used at your wedding. I chose an ornament reflective of the season but you can fill your jar with any non festive decoration that represents you as a couple. Try using different sized jars, mismatched glitter and even artificial foliage. Place them next you flower centerpiece or dessert table. Super cute!

With last year’s Royal Wedding and the economy bounce back, we are seeing wedding decor move a little beyond crafty DIY vintage to a more classic glamour and elegance. Textured linens are a perfect way to add that touch of luxe to your wedding. They can include ruffles, rose embroidery, lace and even sequence. The trick is choose these linens tastefully. Depending on the linen you can cover all your tables with textured linens or just highlight a cake or dessert table or have a textured runner. They will transform your room and WOW your guests!

The ombre effect has been hitting the wedding scene by storm and is now one of the hottest trends. Ombre is french for shaded and the effect refers to the romantic watercolor look when soft, pale hues gradually progress into full, vibrant shades. If you envision having a very chic and whimsy wedding, this multicolor gradient look is a perfect addition to your decor. It can be incorporated in just about any part of your wedding from the bridesmaids dresses to the centerpieces. Here are some great ideas to inspire your own ombre effect!
