Banquet Tables with Natural Tablescapes

This creates an inviting atmosphere for your guests and also encourages them to mingle. As far as table decor goes, brides and grooms are dressing their tables with low centerpieces made of greenery. Small touches of moss, fern, and ivy are a great way to add a natural, but vibrant look to your table decor. Placing candles among the greenery will give a romantic glow all throughout the table and make your guests feel the love all night long. Use our paper lanterns to illuminate the night with soft, twinkling lights.

Bows

Bows are big on the bridal scene for 2019. While bows have always been a popular option when it comes to wedding dresses, this year we’ll see bows are no longer just a way to define a bride’s waist. They’re now being used to tie a bride’s entire look together. Whether you’re going with a minimalist look, with a feminine bow tied at the back or making a statement with dramatic bows on the sleeves, we’ll surely be seeing a lot of bows this wedding season!
