We are having a "duck hunting" theme wedding. Does anyone have any reception decorating idea's? We are having duck decoy candle holders as centerpieces with shadow grass fabric under them, but we need more decorating ideas. ANY IDEAS OUT THERE?
FH wanted to give out duck calls for favors but I 86ed that (I think the kids would be blowing them all night and drive me freakin nuts) Also I originally thought about useing cattails as the greenery in my centerpieces (the are actually pretty- I haven't completely ruled this idea out just yet)
fh also wanted us to let his guys change into camo vests for the reception after pics (I'm fine with that)
Hope this helps, I just wanted to do a little bit of the hunting in the wedding but if I think of anything else, I will post. Best of luck!
ducky...im not sure on the decorations but for the grooms cake we went to Cabelas and bought this action figure called Hunter Dan Duch Hunter it has Hunter Dan (a little smaller than a barbie) decoys, duck call, decoy bag and a gun. They also have "Hank" the black lab with a mallard in his mouth. we had been searching for months for stuff small enough to put on the cake and it was perfect. i will talk to FH and get some more ideas that he had and let you know
How about getting some duck feathers from a craft store (if you use real ones fresh off a duck, you're going to have to get rid of the mites first by microwaving them) and using a gold pen to write names on the feathers for placecards?
Use camo netting (or camo colored tulle) to make a drape from the ceiling behind your sweetheart table or the cake table?
Use EMPTY shotgun shells as part of your favors - maybe fill with a duck shaped lollipop or something along those lines?
I don't know much about ducks or hunting in general - fishing is my man's passion LOL Good luck!
