Decoration Ideas for a Fall Wedding

Have you fixed your wedding in coming autumn? If yes then you may be worried about decorating your wedding venue as autumn weddings are difficult to manage and decorate. Don’t worry because I have a wonderful collection of ideas to decorate a fall wedding. If you want to decorate your wedding venue beautifully, then you must read this post for some great ideas:

  • First of all, let’s come towards decorating aisles. The best idea to decorate aisles is with autumn colored leaves. You can find these leaves at any arts and crafts store. Another idea is to use fresh leaves as they will give a natural look but they are delicate and can become dry quickly.
  • When we think about decorating a wedding venue, the first thing that comes to mind is flower decoration. But to give a unique look to your wedding decorations, I will suggest you using autumn plants like ferns, wheat, grapevine and Indian corn to be used as decorative item. If you have not decided about the wedding venue yet, then arrange your wedding in such a church that is surrounded by autumn trees and fall foliage.
  • While making bouquets, use fall flowers like dahlias. But I prefer roses to all other flowers as they have their own beauty and fragrance. Roses are available in different shades like yellow, red, brown and orange. You can use any of these colors depending on the color of other decorative items you are using. The most common type of rose that is used in fall wedding bouquet is Confetti rose.
  • For place cards, use pumpkins having small size and stem attached with them. Make a semi-deep cut into stem by using a sharp knife and after that, insert place cards in stems. For more security and strength, you can use glue to paste place cards with stems. If you are unable to arrange pumpkins, you can also use gourds and squash.
  • For decorating room in which wedding is to take place, you can use fall plants like Indian corn, grapevine and mums. Also place pumpkins, gourds and apples around the room and on tables.
  • As a table centerpiece, you can use candles and non-flammable leaves. It is better to use candle holders to place candles and leaves.
  • Don’t forget that you will also have to present wedding favors to your guests. The best idea is to give your guests a fall treat as a favor. For this, you can purchase packets of cider and tea and pack them with a cinnamon stick. Another idea is to pack homemade apple cinnamon muffins in plastic bags. Tie these bags with fall-colored ribbons.

What do you say about these ideas? Hopefully you will like these. If it is really so then use these ideas to decorate your fall wedding.

Ideas to Decorate an Outdoor Summer Party

Its summer time now! It is the time for throwing parties and having fun. Are you also thinking of organizing a summer party? It’s a great idea indeed as it will provide you a chance to see your friends and family. Organizing a party is not a big deal but when it comes to decorate the venue, you have to be very creative and careful as well. For making it easy for you, I am going to give you some exciting ideas to decorate an outdoor summer party.

Decoration with Floral Arrangements

An ideal way to decorate an outdoor summer party is to use floral arrangements as flowers will add color and fragrance to your party. Most importantly, flowers are not expensive rather they are free sometimes as you can have a lot of beautiful flowers in your home garden. People, who don’t have flowers in their garden, often ask about selection of flowers. I would recommend such people to use beautiful daisy flowers. Now the question arises how to decorate venue with your selected flowers. As an answer to this question, I am going to give you some ideas.

You can make floral arrangements to use as centerpieces of tables. If it doesn’t work then take bowl full of water, sprinkle petals of flowers on it and then place decorating candles on the surface of water. These can be used as centerpieces as well as they can be used to decorate corners of venue. You can also put flowers in galvanized buckets and then hang them from fence or from the walls of porch.

Decoration with Lights

Outdoor lights are available in a large number of varieties from which you can choose your favorite. I recently attended an outdoor summer party and saw that venue was decorated with hanged paper lanterns which are commonly called Chinese lanterns. You can also use this option as these lanterns will give a modish light to your party. Other options may include decorating your party with small colorful and different shaped candles. As it is a summer party, you will surely want to give a more summery touch to your party for which I would recommend you to use citronella candles or tiki torches. These lights will serve a dual purpose because they will not only give an elegant look but also keep the bugs and mosquitoes away from party attendees.

Decoration with Pinatas

Pinatas are outdoor summer party decorations that are especially liked by kids because they come in different shapes and colors and are commonly filled with candies and chocolates. Choose those pinatas that go well with your party theme.

Use these decoration ideas to make your summer party memorable for you and your guests as well.
