Floral Table Decoration
Table decoration is as important as a floral centerpiece. Decide on the color of your tablecloth. Use a neutral-colored tablecloth that is simple. An intricately patterned lace cloth over a plan tablecloth would look good too. Use simple china tableware. It would blend with any color scheme of your choice.
Making your own decorations would add a personal touch to your wedding. Once you have decided on the various wedding decorations, get the help of a couple of friends. Before you start on the decorations project, get a sample of decorations that were professionally made.
Determine the tools required for the wedding decoration project and assemble the same in a card box. This would make the work of making the decorations easy.
