There’s something about strings of white lights that creates such a magical and intimate setting that’s perfect for a wedding. Just take it from this couple, who opted to hang lights for a whimsical backdrop. You could also wrap some bright lights around branches and use that as a reception table centerpiece.
If you don’t use garland on your tables at the reception, consider hanging some greenery on the back of your guests’ chairs. It’s an easy way to bring in a splash of color and texture while sticking to the winter theme. If you don’t want to use greenery, consider other options, like ribbon or paper snowflakes.
If you’re looking for a holiday-inspired centerpiece for your reception tables, consider using ornaments. Fill a tall, clear, glass vase with an arrangement of metallic silver bulbs. Surround the vase with candles and a table number, and you have yourself a wintry centerpiece.
Fill your reception with the traditional holiday plant, poinsettias. Place them on your escort card table to dress it up, or line the entrance to your reception with the colorful red blooms.
