The Look

So, now that my decor vision has been reinforced by Becca & Jim’s beautiful wedding (here and here), here’s what I’m thinking:

For the reception booklet/favor table, two manzanitas, with whirly candles, and mini red tissue pomanders, and maybe some strings of jet beads, because as much as I adore this, it’s a bit too much shiny modernity for me:

I really want to avoid having this table become the gift table. As someone who used to read etiquette books for fun (!), I loathe the idea of a gift table, but also realize that many people are used to seeing them, so it may end up being the de facto gift table as well. Yes, I’m a little old-fashioned. In my wedding fantasies I leave out the RSVP cards too. Then practicality thumps me over the head and wakes me up!

The fun MS candles…

…with red water, of course, and I’m thinking about using bud vases, narrow cylinder vases, and taper candles instead of pillars. That will depend on making the bud vases stick, with no room to put anything heavy in them.

And flowers (probably red flowers) in tiny vases, because I LOVE the look:

I’m thinking a long line of alternating tiny vases and votives would look really interesting on a cocktail height row of tables. Also loving these from CB2:

And finally, probably some type of floating/glowing/otherwise interesting candles. Because this…

…makes me happy.
