This week our wedding decorations of the week are our mint green birdcage wedding centrepieces. These birdcages make unusual centrepieces and can look really beautiful in the centre of your guest tables. They are perfect for spring and summer weddings, this fresh mint green colour will really brighten up your tables. The birdcages can be used with church candles inside and keep them simple or for a larger statement have your florist create a floral ring around the base. The birdcages have a lovely foot to give them some height but if you would prefer more height try placing them on a stack of vintage books or wooden tree slices depending on your wedding style.
The footed birdcage is made from metal with a distressed mint green / verdigris finish. Place a pillar candle within the birdcage or a small floral display depending on your style and place in the centre of your wedding guest tables.
The wire mesh cage can be removed to insert your candle or flowers.
Each birdcage has a pretty bird sitting on the top.
The footed birdcage measures 43cm tall including the foot x 17cm diameter (area for candles to sit)
Are you planning a travel or wanderlust wedding day? Maybe you’re simply dreaming of a dainty vintage affair. Vintage suitcases work wonderfully for either theme and they’re a lovely addition to any celebration. From centrepieces to cakes, find out how you can use suitcases at your wedding.
One of my favourite ways of using suitcases at your wedding is to incorporate them into your venue décor. Stack two or three suitcases on top of one another and add a pretty vintage vase full of daises or roses. You could even add old-fashioned photographs in antique frames on each suitcase to transport your guests to a bygone era. There are lots of different ways to style your suitcase décor – it’s completely down to your personal taste!
Suitcases are extremely versatile, especially when it comes to using them to display your table plans. Tie them in with your suitcase venue décor by stacking them on top of each other – you can then display your table plan on top of them. This is a fab idea if you’ve already got a table plan framed. On the other hand, you could open the suitcase and hang twine from the edges, and peg each table plan along the string.
Suitcases at your wedding can be very useful. Fill open suitcases with confetti, wedding favours or even your order of service. Simply place an open suitcase outside your ceremony room with a sign saying ‘Please Take A Program’.
Where to start with your wedding cake? Why not go all out with a suitcase themed wedding cake? You could ask your cake maker to create a wanderlust wedding cake in the shape of a suitcase! Or you could simply display your wedding cake on or in suitcase – a fab alternative to the traditional cake stand.
Suitcases are great ways of collecting your wedding cards and gifts. Hang card bunting across the suitcase so that you guests know where to deliver their cards – that way they don’t have to worry about losing them during the reception. A vintage card and gift table is a wonderful way of decorating your venue. All you need are a few vintage photographs and some weathered, antique books. It’ll fit in with your suitcase style beautifully.
Why not use suitcases as part of your wedding table centrepieces? Opt for smaller suitcases, rather than large ones as they may take over your tables a little too much. Place a mini suitcase in the middle of your table and fill with flowers or your favourite photographs of you both as a couple. Your guests will adore flicking through them and it’s a definite talking point for everyone.
Time to get romantic! Suitcases can be used as a different option to a traditional guest book. Ask your guests to write a lovely note or some marriage advice on a vintage postcard, and ask them to place it in your suitcase. It’ll keep your notes safe and it means you can read them after your special day.
These pink and gold vases can be hung using the gold handle or sat on your tables with the gold handle as decoration. The vases could be used as part of a grouping on your wedding tables (these vases are also available in a larger size). Or positioned on poseur tables around your venue, on your ceremony table, down the aisle or in the bar or relaxed seating areas at your venue.
You don’t have to add flowers, the vases look lovely with a tea light in too as a small lantern.
Pink and gold is a beautiful colour combination for any wedding.
Our quilted candle holder is a pale pink / baby pink in colour, made from glass with a quilted effect. The handle of the candle holder is gold metal and can be used for hanging or just extra decoration.
Use either as a candle holder using a tea light inside or fill with water and use as a vase. Team up with our larger vase if you want to make a grouping on your guest tables.
Flowers and candles next to your guest book or on your ceremony table could also be displayed in these containers.
Using lace ribbon at weddings creates a beautiful, elegant theme that is timeless. Today we’re looking at how to use lace ribbon throughout your wedding day; from your dress to your décor, we’ve got it covered. Indulge yourself in a little wedding inspiration with our fab lace ribbon ideas…
Lace has always been on of the most popular fabrics for wedding gowns, and we can definitely see why. It’s a beautiful, delicate bridal fabric that never goes out of fashion. A lace gown is the perfect way to kick-start a lace wedding theme. Have you ever considered wearing lace shoes? They’ll look super cute peeping out from underneath your gown. A veil will look beautiful lined with lace ribbon too, and you can easily incorporate it into your bridal accessories.
Let’s talk about your wedding stationery. You can ultimately choose any stationery design you fancy, but by wrapping a pretty lace ribbon around each invite you’ll give your guests a subtle hint of your theme. This will look oh-so pretty and it’s the perfect way to set the scene for your special day…
You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to using lace ribbon at weddings, but one of my favourite ideas is by using it in your wedding bouquet. Simply wrap lace ribbon around the stems of your blooms. You could even add a pretty brooch or mini photo-frame to the lace for a personal touch.
Forget hessian or sequin table runners, we adore lace table runners! They are such a stunning addition to any wedding table and will look completely elegant. Add a few mason jars wrapped with lace ribbon along the table – they’ll look fab filled with pretty flowers or dainty tea-lights. Why not wrap lace ribbon around cutlery, napkins and wedding favour bags too?
There are tons of subtle ways to use lace ribbon at weddings. For instance, you could tie your confetti bags with pretty lace ribbon! Lace ribbon looks absolutely gorgeous on a wedding cake too! You can use real lace ribbon by wrapping it around each tier, or you can ask your cake-maker to create lace icing from top to bottom! Either way, you’re guaranteed a cake that looks too good to eat!
As you can see, lace ribbon is a beautiful way of decorating your wedding venue and it looks wonderful in the smaller details too. We hope you love this theme idea as much as we do!
