A confetti bar is surprisingly simple and easy to style and it’s a wonderful way of adding to your venue decor. Plus, it gives you a chance to get creative and allows you to express your personality and wedding style. One of the best things about a wedding confetti bar is the fact that it can be designed to suit any theme and you can effortlessly make it unique.

If you’re dreaming of a pretty vintage or country garden wedding theme, listen up! A quaint desk or table with an antique feel is the perfect base for your confetti bar. Use an old-fashioned sign, frame or chalkboard to let your guests know about your confetti bar, and stand it against the table. Fill vintage baskets with pretty petals and offer your guests cones adorned with lace detailing.

Metallic wedding colour schemes are here to stay for 2017, so why not use gold as the inspiration for your wedding confetti bar? Metallic calligraphy written on mirrors or acrylic signs will look fab. Fill clear or gold vases with sequins, feathers or even glitter! You’ll sparkle for the rest of your wedding day. You could use a vintage-inspired bar cart as a base for your confetti bar – it’ll give your big day a dash of Gatsby glamour!

There are no rules when it comes to confetti, and it seems more and more couples are opting for alternative confetti ideas. If you’re planning a rustic or destination wedding, we love the thought of using a variety of herbs as your confetti. From dried lavender to handfuls of mint – the choice is yours!

We love the idea of displaying your confetti bar in a vintage chest of drawers, and using each draw as an compartment for different types and colours of confetti. Offer your guests scoops so that they can fill cones, jars or hessian bags with their chosen confetti. It’ll look ultra-stylish at your wedding venue, and it’ll be something your guests won’t have seen before.

Wooden crates are seriously useful when it comes to wedding decor, and they can be used as part of your confetti bar. Fill the crates with loose petals, or use them as storage for kilner and mason jars brimming with confetti. They’re a fab touch if you’re opting for a rustic or country wedding theme, and they’ll fit in with your decor perfectly.

Hanging Vases And Candle Holders For Winter Weddings

Hanging Vases And Candle Holders For Winter Weddings

Winter is well and truly here which means that Christmas is just days away. Which is why today we’re looking at some magical Winter wedding inspiration! Hanging vases and candle holders are a great way of injecting personality into your Winter wedding and there are so many different ways they can be used. Discover our favourite decoration ideas for hanging vases and candle holders.

If you love the thought of a simple yet stylish minimalist wedding theme then listen up, as we’ve got the perfect centrepiece for your reception tables. Simply secure some small branches or twigs in a vase. Then hang small candle holders from the branches and fill with tea lights. It’s easy to style and it creates a chic Winter vibe that your guests will love.

You can easily create a rustic tree centrepiece too – the perfect choice if you’re planning a Winter woodland wedding theme. Rather than using a vase as a base, opt for a wooden crate and fill it with dried moss. Then you can just secure it with some small branches or twigs and decorate it with rustic hanging candle holders.

The outside of your wedding venue can often look a little bare in Winter, especially once all of the trees have lost their leaves. But don’t fret, it’s easy to make the outside of your venue look as good as the inside. Simply tie glass vases full of Winter blooms to the tree branches using a roll of twine ribbon.

If you’re lucky enough to have a rustic barn wedding venue that features lots of wooden beams, make use of them! Hanging vases and candle holders will look incredible tied along the beams, dangling over the reception tables. It’ll give your venue a gorgeous glowing ambience and can even be an alternative to traditional centrepieces.

If your wedding venue doesn’t feature beams but you love the thought of hanging vases and candle holders above your reception tables, it’s time to get DIY savvy. You’ll need to check with your venue first, but you can easily create your own temporary wooden installation that has the same effect as beams.

Hanging vases and candle holders for Winter weddings will look fab anywhere you put them, but why not add an extra festive touch? You could wrap twine, hessian or even tartan ribbon around the rim of your candles, jam jars or mason jars. Use a glittering gold or silver ribbon to hang your vases from – you can never have too much sparkle at a Winter wedding!

Go all out with your wedding venue decor and create a showstopper centrepiece that’s different from the norm. Fill large mercury hanging vases with Winter foliage – the wild and overflowing greenery will look stylish and it’s perfect for the season.
