Budget Friendly Holiday Reception Decorations
The holiday season is a fantastic time to get married because many venues are already decorated. Take advantage of this fact and you could save some serious cash. Of course, you will want to add your personal touch to the reception tables.
Here are some inexpensive ways to add personality to your reception decor without breaking the bank.
Ornaments in Vases – Sparkling holiday ornaments grouped in a tall vase make for a simple yet stunning centerpiece. Don’t they remind you of champagne bubbles?
You can find bulk ornaments at craft stores. These filled vases are a great alternative to a flower centerpiece. Be sure to keep a few of the ornaments as a wedding keepsake to decorate your personal tree in for years to come.
Tree Sapling Favors – Saplings grouped together in the center of the reception tables look festive. Better yet, they can double as favor for the guests. Add a ribbon matching your color scheme for even more impact.
Mason Jar Candles – Canning jars with floating candles are on trend, but adding some greenery and cranberries gives the centerpieces holiday flavor.
You can carry the berry theme to your favor boxes by using these lovely favor boxes with berry embellishments.
Be sure to plan in advance, since many office parties will be interested in event spaces during the season. But if you are willing to give up some of the decorating control to the reception hall, you may be able to save money on your wedding by taking advantage of the decorations the venue will already have in place.
