My daughter and I had a vision and it came together beautifully. Our family loves fall and while we were planning the reception we were determined to use mostly real white pumpkins in with our tablescapes for the reception.
I have been collecting white urns and silver trays for close to a year. With the help of my floral friend Damon, this all came together for us.
Some pumpkins were glittered
Each table had a silver tray, a pumpkin and flowers. Most of the trays I picked up at thrift stores.
Some were in my own personal collection
Some were monogrammed with glitter
We rented this giant candelabra for the head table. It had a silver glittered Cinderella pumpkin perched on top.
Some pumpkins were carved and used as vases
The table below was Mr. Brown Socks and my table with the vintage bride and groom
The big, tall urns were from thrift stores
Carnation topiaries dressed up the head table
I LOVED these monogrammed pumpkins with the largest pumpkin having a “C” for their last name and staggering sizes for the initials for their first names.
I didn’t get a lot of pictures at night but so glad we have this so you can see how pretty it was illuminated. Christmas lights were inserted from the bottom to light these.
Notice lights of the city in the background.
This was the prettiest room!
These apothecary jars were filled with flowers at the bar
These pictures were taken at midnight as we were leaving to go home
Such FUN we had!
The little mercury candle holders did have votives in them as time drew near for the guests to arrive. We used white barley to fill in. They were take home favors for our guests.
Most all of the pumpkins were real. They held up great during the five weeks I babied them in my basement!
The pumpkins with drilled holes were so pretty at night. We used a battery operated candle which was meant for Halloween. It glowed beautifully. Got them at Home Depot.
This was the guest book table
Notice how the lid to the pumpkin is perched on the side of the arrangement. I loved that!
This is what the table looked like after we cleared everything off the individual tables. Luckily I didn’t have to take it all home that night. They gave me a couple of days to wrap all the breakables.
