Most people have fresh flowers at their wedding, that’s the norm and they are a great way to decorate your venue. But I have been thinking…. there are lots of other creative ways to add decoration and colour without using real flowers, so over the course of the next month I am going to try and come up with as many different ways to decorate a venue as possible, and my first one is fruit. A quick spin through cyberspace has given me some great ideas and wonderful inspiration …. a few things to remember when using fruit for decoration is stay away from soft fruit, sliced bananas or sliced apple as these will go mushy and a not so nice brown colour. Citrus fruit, cherries and berries add great colour and have a wonderful smell especially if you cut some of the citrus fruit to release the juices.
One of my favorites has to be these apple placecard holders, simple yet effective.
I hope I have given you some new ideas and inspiration, stay tuned for the next one!
