Many brides search for photo inspiration for their wedding decor, only to find that the cost behind the complete look is out of reach and unrealistic for their budget. Rather than become overwhelmed with the things you can’t have, we are believers in finding decorative solutions that are affordable and make a lasting impact for a fraction of the cost of grand floral centerpieces or expensive lighting. One way to do this is through your table place settings. A decorative napkin or a simple flower in the center of a plate can make all the difference in your table presentation. Here are some inspiring pictures on how to create just that for your reception tables!
