Need help with reception centerpiece ideas
Posted: Jun 25, 2009 3:56 PM

I'm getting married in Jamaica in November. Our reception will be back home a month later. I would like to have a simple, elegant reception with touches of a beach them. I'm considering using these tealight fountains as centerpieces. What do you think? Any ideas on how to dress them up? I was going to use shells instead of the stones that come with the fountains.

I think they look beautiful! You could also spread different sized shells all over the tablecloth/linens and around the centerpiece, which would really give it a more beachy feel too. Like this:

(but not that many obviously.... lol)

I agree--I would tuck in a single tropical bloom (e.g. hibiscus, orchid) to add some pizzazz.

I think that fountain will be nice with the water running and everything. Here is something to also consider in addition to the orchids, white daisys. You can also try to place a round mirror on the bottom of the fountain to enchance even more with tiny sea shells and sand dollars. I know everything will come together nicely.
