Here are some of our favorite premade reception decor combos to create a beautiful and budget-friendly wedding day.

1. Get creative with your head table.

Let's start with the heart of your reception - your sweetheart table.

Try adorning your table with a premade flower garland to give it color and life. A few romantic candles can help create an intimate and welcoming display. Combine with a tablecloth and table runner, and you’ve created a beautiful place to enjoy an intimate meal with your new spouse.  (89.99+39.99=$129.98)

2: Create a backdrop

To further frame your sweetheart table, try adding a backdrop to make the atmosphere more romantic.

Sheer paneled curtains can light up the background as you and your partner dine. We recommended combining it with a 6ft floral garland to create a verdant look. This backdrop would also make a wonderful place to take photos with family and friends at your reception! (49.99+69.99=$119.98)

3: Curate your guest tables

Of course, your guests will need a place to dine, too. You can help them feel welcome and immersed by decorating your guest tables with lush faux florals.

We recommend combining floral centerpieces with a sheer table runner to create an elegant, understated wedding look. Flower-adorned lanterns can also illuminate your tables with a delicate and dreamy glow.

For each table, you can use three centerpieces, two lantern garlands, and one table runner. The result is a lush tablescape that’s sure to please your guests.  (79.99x3+89.99x2+12.99x6=$497.89—6 guest tables)

4: Scatter flower petals

Last but not least, little details can complete the atmosphere and tie your overall theme together. Try scattering flower petals on your tables or the ground for a romantic finishing touch. 

Our silk rose petals are even scented to provide the experience of real flowers without the expense. It’s a wonderful way to engage all your senses and carry your wedding theme beyond the visual realm. ($15.99)
