Ideas for a Pine Cone Wedding Theme
Pine cones are a great autumn and winter wedding decorating element. They are plentiful and can be found anywhere from your local craft store to your backyard.
The brown of pine cones acts as a neutral color, allowing them to work well into just about any type of wedding themes.
Here are some great ways to incorporate pine cones into your wedding.
Wedding Bouquet – You have probably seen the bouquets consisting of nothing but grouped pine cones. While a large mass of one item can make a statement, this bouquet incorporates white and green, adding a bit of life to the arrangement.
Place Cards – Pine cones make a great way to present seating cards. DIY House Remodel’s website offers a visual tutorial for making them. This example shows all the pine cones together, perhaps on an entrance table.
Tip: Test the pine cones to be sure they sit flat before using a saw to make a space for the card.
Candle Favors – These cinnamon scented pine cone candle favors would be a nice way to greet your guests at their reception seat. The functional favor will be a nice reminder of your wedding when they use the candle at home.
Wedding Cake – Thinking about having love birds as your cake topper? Then why not decorate your cake with pine cones. The graphic and colorful pine cones and branches add some interest to what otherwise may be a plain white cake.
Pine cones can be a lovely way to add natural elements to your wedding day. In addition to these ideas, you can add pine cones about anywhere you want to add some decoration to your ceremony or reception – place them in a basket or bowl or nestle them among other decorative items.
