Flourishing Florals

Draping florals, bright florals, seasonally themed florals. The sky’s the limit. Laying or setting out florals on your sweetheart table can not only make your focal point of the reception pop, but they can also encourage the rest of your décor to appear more verdant and robust.

Luxury Love-Seating

Who wants to walk all the way down the aisle and then have to sit and eat dinner in a plastic fold up chair? Not you! Consider renting, purchasing, or thrift shopping for a luxurious loveseat for you and your new spouse to rest on and cuddle up in while you feed each other some delicious wedding cake.

Charming Chairs

When going for a laid back rustic or more minimal wedding and or reception theme, instead of a full loveseat, decorate some gorgeous styled lounge chairs or decorative stools for you and your partner. Some popular new chairs are the Adirondack Chairs which may be a more comfortable lounge chair alternative.

Textured Tablecloth

You’ve got your seats taken care of, but what about the table dressing? If you have minimal florals decorating your table, consider dressing up your sweetheart table with a gorgeous textured tablecloth or table runner. This is one of the simplest ways to dress up any table, just throw on some beautiful fabric and that table is ready to party!

Decorated with florals, have a nice table cloth, and a luxurious seat, but don't know what more you can do? Consider decorating the floor near your sweetheart table to give it that extra pop! Add candles, flower petals, or even confetti to sweeten up your space.
