Table Decor and More: Personalizing Your Party is Our Specialty

Everyone wants a memorable wedding ceremony and reception. Having a perfect day that meets your dream wishlist while remaining affordable is possible when you hire the right wedding planning and staging team. Table Decor and More has a multitude of enchanting options when it comes to your catering menu, flowers, live entertainment, decor, music choices and everything in between.

Speaking of music, have you heard of “Marryoke” yet? It’s a mash-up of a wedding video and karaoke, hence the name. You create a musical montage featuring your family and friends lip-syncing to the song of your choice to immortalize your wedding day. It’s a fresh and fun memento that will be a joy to watch over and over again. Here’s more info about this hot wedding trend:

 The bride, groom and their loved ones all get to star in their very own pop video by miming along to their favourite track.

The footage is then cleverly interwoven with video of all the traditional features of the happy day, from the groom waiting at the altar for his bride, to the wedding ceremony and onto the reception afterwards. It’s supposed to be the happiest day of your life, so there’s no wonder that newlyweds have always wanted to have a permanent record of the day.

But marryoke is certainly a step up from a formal photo on the steps of the church.

“There has been a real shift in wedding’s recently,” says marryoke maker Billy May. “People are constantly looking for something that’s unique so there’s a real competitive element going on. People search for something different at their weddings, whether it’s with the flowers, or the cake, the wedding favours or the video. There’s also a social media element where people want to upload photos and videos of the day on Facebook or YouTube.” Read more at Daily Mail

 Introducing the satellite bar—in addition to your standard mixed drinks, beer and wine setup, this second bar is designated for a special spirit. It’s a great way to personalize the party with your favorite libation, or even serve a tasting of preferred wines. And while there will always be room for craft beers and locally distilled whisky, tequila is totally having a moment.

Make It Yours: Set up a bar that highlights your preferred drink, like champagne or a specialty gin. If you’re down with tequila, try some twists on the classic margarita (hello, grapefruit) or tasteful shooters. Personalize one step further with the presentation: Colored glassware, infused ice cubes or elaborate garnishes (like smoke) will wow. Read more at The Knot

Let Table Decor Create Your Ultimate Country Chic Wedding

Dreaming of a beautiful country chic wedding? You’re not alone — they’re super popular now. If you put Table Decor and More in charge of your special day you can trust that every rustic detail — from the venue to the decorations to the food and everything in between — will be completely taken care of by our professional team. We will deliver your entire country chic wedding on budget and wrapped in a burlap bow.

Here’s a closer look at some country chic weddings other couples have enjoyed:

The wedding had a really relaxed vibe and the ‘hoedown’ theme really got the party started! “I guess our theme was country and bluegrass,” the bride concluded, “from the Johnny Cash inspired ceremony music and readings, mixed with the rustic and rural charm of the US deep south – gingham, jam jars, JD bottles, banjos, barbequed meat and wild west lettering and signs. And of course, some cowboy boots thrown in there for good measure!” Read more at Rock N Roll Bride

A Venue to Remember

Our experienced crew has the skinny on all the best locations to host your wedding or next big celebration. We work with a multitude of local vendors and have established wonderful connections to bring your gathering together on time and on budget. If an expansive retro barn will provide your dream backdrop, we’ve got options. If you are seeking a more modern and sleek country vibe, we can do that too. Whatever the vision, whatever the occasion, you will get the best result for the best rate by booking with us instead of assembling your event piecemeal on your own.

A Place to Feast and Dance the Night Away

One of the great things about renting a farm, a barn or rural recreational hall is that the space itself is a major decor element. The mood for your event is set before a single item of decoration is placed; everything that’s added just increases the impact. As a side bonus, you can often avoid feeling cramped and crowded or worrying about guest parking when you opt for some countryside opulence. They call it the “wide open spaces” for a reason, you know.

From Linens to Lighting

You will save yourself time and money from trying to track down a rental company that suits your needs if you simply call us first. When we handle a wedding or event, our expansive list of accessories — tables, chairs, linens, glasses, plates, flatware, serving dishes and utensils, lighting, decorations and much more — encompass every need you may have. We offer a variety of packages to keep your wedding, family reunion or social gathering fun and stress free. We will help you see your vision for your event clearly and deliver it just the way you imagined.

Cool Down With Our Exceptional Ice Sculptures

Celebrate with refreshing style and include a deluxe ice sculpture at your next event. Perhaps you incorporate it into the buffet or have it jazz up your bar situation, maybe it forms part of a photo opportunity or behind your wedding cake. Make your ice sculpture a focal point by adding some lighting or having it made with glitter. Utilize your ice sculpture as a practical and unique punch bowl…or maybe have your initials or names carved.

The basic concept of adding controlled color to ice sculptures, whether your using gelatin, paints, or sand is that you’re engraving in from the back of the piece, creating an inset flat surface or surfaces to accept the color(s), then laying down your color and freezing it into place. Freezing it into place generally involves some combination of snow and cold water, which without careful application might shift the color(s) out of place. Because glitter is so light, it’s especially likely to be dislodged

  • It’s especially important to work in a freezer if you’re using glitter for color. Using sand outside the freezer is very difficult; glitter is next to impossible.
  • Color is applied to your ice with the piece lying down flat. After you’ve put down a layer of glitter, back it with a layer of similarly colored sand to hold the glitter in place.
  • After the glitter/sand has been applied, use a spray bottle to mist water over the color and allow it to freeze. Read more at Ice Carving Secrets

How much do you need? Order at least three to four dishes, glasses, stemware and flatware pieces per guest, says Jenny Orsini, owner and creative director at Jenny Orsini Events in New Jersey. For a cocktail hour, you’ll need at least three glasses for each person. And order at least 10 extra chairs for your ceremony, plus 10 extras for your cocktail party and reception in case any chairs arrive cracked or broken. See Bridal Guide for more

Table Decor: Putting on the Ritz

Once your venue has been secured for your wedding and reception, the planning really begins. Transform a tiny banquet hall or an expansive, open field with the help of a qualified wedding and event staging company like Table Decor and More. Unforgettable soirees such as the one in the photo above are a cinch when you have professionals handling every detail.

Furniture and Theme Rentals

Some people are skipping the formal linen rentals in lieu of placing their money elsewhere. Consider incorporating some love seats, elaborate chairs, chandeliers, pillars, wall sconces, archways, trellises or oversized candles instead. Opulence can be achieved in a multitude of ways. DIY savvy folks can easily incorporate matching table runners and chair sashes with the help of a glue gun and some imagination.

Rental Obligations

Prior to hiring any party event rental service, the following questions from Bridalguide.com outline the specifics to consider. Be sure you understand all of your responsibilities and time rental commitments ahead of time.

The essential questions to ask

  • Are you licensed and insured?

  • Have you worked events at our ceremony/reception venue(s) before? (A very important question, especially for tent rentals!)

  • Can we view item selections before renting?

  • Will we be able to view actual rental items from your supply, or will we be shown samples?

  • Will we be able to contact you on the day of our event? (Get the name and cell phone number of an in-charge person in case of problems and needed solutions.)

  • Are setup and delivery fees included in our order? Or are they extra?

  • What are delivery charges for our locations?

  • How much is required for deposit?

  • When is deposit due? (Most companies require a non-refundable deposit, roughly equal to one-third of the total rental package price. This amount is usually due when you book your rental items.)

  • When is final payment due?

  • Which methods of payment do you accept?

  • When will our rented items be delivered to the venue? Arrange for a time that allows setup without pressure, at least several hours before your event starts.

  • Will delivery workers bring all rented items inside the venue and set everything up? Or do you offer ‘tailgate service’ delivery, wherein the company just drops off your rented items in a driveway or at the venue entrance, leaving you to carry everything inside and set up yourself?

  • Will someone instruct us on how to operate the rented item? (Especially key for lighting rentals.)

  • When will delivery workers return to collect all rented items after the wedding?

  • How do we prepare rented items for pickup? Do we have to clean dishes, glasses, flatware first, or do we load dirties into their crates?

  • How will rented chairs need to be arranged for pickup? Some companies require you to fold chairs closed and some require sliding them into padded delivery bags in which they came.

  • What are the costs and details in case any items are broken or lost?

  • What is your cancellation/refund policy? Get more details at Bridal Guide

Eye-catching Appeal

Remember, many guests will be spending the majority of their time at the table eating, visiting and enjoying the scene. Keep them engaged by incorporating color in a unique way. Colored glassware is a hot rental item. Aqua blues, seacoast greens and vivid purples add some pizzazz to traditional stemware.

  1. Reach High Break up the long, narrow tables with height. This will give your tables some dimension. Be creative: Alternate between ceramic vases and candlesticks.

  2. Balance It Out Consider the space. Oversized windows need to be balanced out. Longer tables are the perfect solution for giving more depth to a bare room and keep it from feeling cold.

  3. Play Up Shapes Don’t settle on round, standard plates. Let the place settings work together by mimicking the table’s shape. And make a subtle point by using sharp sides.

  4. Run Long Elongate the table by working the middle zone. Add texture by layering a graphic runner over a solid tablecloth. If you aren’t into doubling up on linens, then let your centerpieces step in.

  5. Disperse Details Rectangular tables have a lot of space to fill. (No pressure!) The trick here is to keep in mind that not every inch has to be covered. Prevent this potential color overload by using accent hues in a couple of strategic spots, like on the ballroom chair cushions, lining the middle of each table with tall candlesticks and on place settings by way of the menu or place cards.

When to Use Banquet Tables: High ceilings. Tall windows. Massive floor space. You’ve fallen head over heels with a room that needs some filling. The solution (yes, there is one!): Stretch your tables. Set these long, lean shapes in organized rows or in a U-shaped formation. Watch how the lines of color saturate your party room.

Maximize Your Ambiance

table decor more wedding reception event planner charlotte nc

Catching the light throughout your event will reflect on the overall mood. If you are going for serene and relaxed, ensure that no overhead fluorescent lights need to be relied on. Lamps, disco balls, candelabras, hanging crystals, LEDs back or overhead light strings are simple options to incorporate. Delicate white or clear Christmas lights or homemade Edison bulb strings can be used to create an extra glow. Paper lanterns, paper bag or ice sculpture tea light holders are excellent options for illuminating an aisle, dance floor perimeter or smoking lounge. Be sure to use battery operated flameless tea lights to maximize safety.

Organizing a wedding requires an enormous amount of time and energy. Hiring a professional to plan your day offers tremendous peace of mind. Imagine meeting with your planner and making a few decisions and then enjoying your engagement while everything is handled for you.

If you work with Table Decor and More this is just what you can expect. Our all-inclusive wedding packages include planning, decorating, catering and more. We can even hire the photographer, book the DJ and arrange limo service. All you have to do for your wedding is show up.

Floral Free Centerpieces

If flowers seem synonymous with wedding table decor, we understand. Typically, a floral arrangement is the centerpiece or most recognizable element on a formally decorated table. However, some people don’t care for fresh cut flowers due to their expense and/or allergy aggravating pollen. Artificial flowers may be an option — but couples often spend just as much on artificial blooms as they would the real thing. If flowers aren’t really your thing, check out the following floral-free centerpiece ideas to ignite your imagination.

Q:

Approximately how much of my wedding budget should I anticipate spending on my wedding flowers?

A:

The sky’s the limit when it comes to flowers for your wedding, but realistically you can plan on spending about 8% of your overall budget. This covers the bride’s bouquet, bridesmaids’ bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and ceremony and reception arrangements. How much you actually spend depends on many different factors, such as whether or not the flowers you choose are in season in your area, the size and complexity of the arrangements, and how far the flowers must travel to the ceremony and reception. Be sure to have your whole budget worked out in advance of meeting with your florist for the first time so he or she can show you all the options in your price range. The Knot Budgeter is the first place to start! (Read more at The Knot)

Linen Wrapped Vases and Bottles

Greenery is an excellent option when you want to add some botanical features but prefer no flowers. Vines, ivy, spiky succulents and windblown boughs can be reused to add some vibrant green vibes to your wedding decor.

Books: Easy, Accessible and Affordable

Many couples want to incorporate as much function as creativity into their table decor. Books are an awesome way to achieve height, visual interest and ingenuity. Opt to go with a theme and look for relevant titles or cover art. Alternatively, you might prefer to wrap your books with brown paper bags or wrapping paper. Spray painted covers and pages are another option. Decide early on if you are creating iconic art or maintaining the book’s integrity to offer guests a readable favor.

Many libraries, schools and clubs have annual book sales. Garage sales are another perfect place to stock up on your literary masterpieces. Feel great about supporting your neighborhood and sending your guests home with some useful, flammable and practical!

Use Texture to Create Visual Interest

Flowers are popular centerpieces due to their aroma, minute details and layers of petal texture. Recreate something equally stunning by utilizing some of the following:

*Metallic Jars

*Candle Holders

*Wicker/Baskets/Placemats

*Colored or Neutral Sand

*Detailed Ceramic

*Ornate Cutlery

*Teapots

*Antique Glassware

*Fish Bowls

*Lanterns

*Pails/Buckets

 

Save Tons of Money Forgoing Flowers

Here’s some average minimum prices…don’t hold your florist to this, it depends on the flowers you choose, if you are in a major urban expensive area, the design, labor to set up, etc.:

Bride’s bouquet: $100 and up
Bridesmaids: $75 and up
bouts: $10 and up
corsages: $20 and up
ceremony arch: $150 and up
ceremony large arrangements, each: $125 and up
aisle petals: $100 and up
aisle hanging pomanders, each: $50 and up
centerpieces, each: $25 and up ($25 is very spare; $50 is more on the low-end)
petals around centerpieces: $7 and up
cake flowers: $50 and up
escort table flowers: $35 and up (Read more at Wedding Wire)

Your floral component comprises a huge chunk of the traditional budget. If you would prefer to put $800 – $2500 toward your honeymoon or rental necessities or other bills, you are not alone. Be sure to tell each vendor your budget from the very beginning so everyone is on the same page. Decoration rental companies and party suppliers commonly offer inspirational portfolio shots if you need some help getting creative.

If you don’t want to worry with any of these issues, your best bet is to simply let Table Decor and More handle every aspect of your decorations, including centerpieces. We can deliver the perfect setting, with flowers or without.

Utilizing Nature’s Bounty

Pinecone placeholders and homemade cake stands cut from wooden rounds are a cheap and easy way to embrace nature and honor your budget. The more DIY options you explore with your wedding planner, the more money you will have to invest in flowers, lighting, chair covers, napkins, tablecloths candles and food. Edible centerpieces infuse a fresh and tasty ambiance that your guests will talk about for years to come. Colorful fruit can give you lots of color options for your centerpieces.

Focal Flower Pots

table decor charlotte nc wedding event planner venue rentalsMany centerpieces double as guest favors for events. Providing your family and friends with a useful memento or token from your event is a wonderful way to convey your appreciation for their attendance.

Many party suppliers will be happy to offer a discount if you are purchasing bulk items so be sure to let your event planner know that you would like to offer a giveaway. Elegant flower pots are an excellent investment and make a great keepsake gift for your attendees.

Up-Cycled Vintage

Feel great about reducing, re-using and recycling. Securing your wedding and event items from a full-service party supplier like Table Decor and More will save you from purchasing and storing a multitude of items that you invariably will never use again and then just toss out later. If you want to help your party planner create items for your event, inspiration can be found among twine, burlap, lace, seashells, beads, buttons, handkerchiefs, vases, jars, bandanas, wine and beverage bottles, wood cuttings, wildflowers and so much more. Open your mind to any idea; your event planner is sure to have some good ones. Also, look for projects you can create ahead of time in your spare time to avoid feeling rushed. A relaxed timeframe will make it easier for friends and family members to help you with your DIY project.

Organizing a wedding or event requires an enormous amount of time and energy. There are dozens of tasks that must be completed.
