Luckily, one reception had some white lanterns up so I was able to see how that looks at WOW. I currently have 12 red round lanterns I plan on putting up. I also have 6 small battery powered white lanterns. I think these will go on the cocktail table or the edges of the bar in place of candles. I have 6 or so round white lanterns I can hang up, but I won't be able to light them up. I'm thinking of buying a few large white lanterns to hang up, so I have 3 different sizes hanging. I also plan to buy something to light some of them (maybe half). Right now, the best thing I've found is an LED that lasts 12+ hours for about $3 each. I need something that lasts fairly long, because the lanterns will be hung by the staff well before the reception starts. I don't want the light burning out before the reception even starts!
Originally, I was planning on using the metal WOW candelabras for our centerpieces. That was before I bought some beautiful table runners from a gal.
We decided the big candelabras are too much with the pattern on the table runner, so we decided to go with the 3 floating candles.
I'm thinking of putting some black river rocks at the bottom of the vases. I tried to find a picture, but all the ones I found had flowers in the cases as well.
We set up our tasting for July. We will set up the final arrangement of tables, etc. at that time.
I still would love to have something like this on the escort card table. I just don't want to spend a ton of money on it!
I also plan on having a menu of specialty drinks with cute names. Any suggestions? Any ideas of where to look?
