Desert Themed Wedding Reception Do’s
Secured your sought after desert destination wedding spot and now looking to ensure the perfect complementary decor? Or maybe you simply want to recreate that dreamy desert feel in your theme, right in your hometown venue.
On trend for spring and summer weddings is the modern desert look, complete with succulents, geodes, pink himalayan salt and all the good vibes. With just a few well-placed accents and personalized details, you can accomplish your desired look and feel with glamour and ease. Here are a few tips for bringing your reception to themed perfection.
Go all out with the natural additions. Succulents and a variety of small flowering cactus plants complemented by simple wild flowers add an incredible depth and beauty as the floral option. Succulents make for breathtaking bouquets and boutonnieres, while a mini cactus can be the perfect desert earth centerpiece. Other natural elements to incorporate into your decor are woods and burlaps. The natural sandy color is reminiscent of the desert landscape and, together with your greenery, will be sure to create the desired atmosphere for you and your guests.
Love on those details. But there’s no need to be extravagant to pull off your desired look and feel. Escort your guests to their tables with these warm Personalized Euro Place Cards with Shiny Copper Foil. As you can see, the simple addition of a few stones also adds to the natural setting.
As guests are seated, great them with a place setting that seamlessly continues the theme. Simple dishes and flatware paired with personalized napkins in a soft color palette are an ideal atmosphere choice. There are so many napkin sizes you can choose from to suit your taste. Seen below is a Personalized Guest Towel Napkin in Honeydew with Shiny Copper Penny Foil. While it makes for a gorgeous plate, this option is a little less traditional than the Dinner Napkin or Personalized Cocktail Napkin shown above. Cocktail napkins are of course the ideal option for cocktail hours, appetizers and bar additions.
Let’s talk favors. Mini flowering cactus plants are adorable and creative take-home gifts. Tie a Personalized Gift Tag around the base of your cactus for a beautiful ‘thank you’ that is as unique as you and your new spouse. Make your memorabilia memorable by putting a spin on the traditional matchbox favor and pairing it with a sparkler send off to give your guests a special something that they also use during your big day. Add an extra touch with Personalized Sparkler Sleeves to really dazzle. Just think of the gorgeous photo op!
