A few garden trellises propped up against the walls make the perfect base for your wedding reception decorations. Select a trellis that has a measurement of at least 6' on one side so it will display high up on your walls. These can be purchased at any garden center, including many big chain hardware stores. Simple wooden trellises are very cheap, but you can also find beautiful iron and copper ones.Have a friend or family member take a Polaroid of your guests as they arrive at your reception. Pin to a silk tree that has been decorated for the occasion . Give Photo to your guests as favors.
