Hoping you can help me come up with some ideas for table decorations for my mother's wedding. I'll give a little bit of background on it ...
She's getting remarried in June. She's asked me to sort out the table decs as my 'present' to her. Her dress is white with bead-and-sequin teal-y turquoise-y flowers on it. The men are wearing suits with cream waistcoats and teal ties. They're having burnt-orange rose buttonholes.
The main centrepieces for the tables are small white birdcages
. My mother wanted to put pillar candles in but as they won't fit, three tealights look lovely clustered in the bottom, although as it'll be June ie.warm and light 'til late, candles might be a bit unnecessary.
I've managed to get a couple of lists off my mother of things she and her fiance like:
orange gerberas, skiing, running, mountain biking, wine & champagne, the sunshine, reading books, gardening, long hot baths, marshmallows
skiing, mountain biking, stella beer, cars, motorbikes, running, food generally
fishing, tigers, leopards elephants, fizzy cola bottles, t-shirts with funny slogans
I'm pretty stuck on what to do, and whilst I'd love to put feathers and buttons and beads and birds and butterflies everywhere, it's more 'me' than 'them' and of course the day is about 'them'!
Any ideas will be much appreciated
