Fall Wedding Series #6 - The Candy Buffet Table

As the favors for our wedding, we decided to set up a candy buffet! It was also around Halloween so I thought it would be nice for everyone to get a chance to trick or treat!

I collected lots of fun jars to use to hold the candy.  I wrapped them in teal ribbon (held with double-sided tape), tied on some jute string, and hot-glued some wood hearts with the candies' names on them. I choose candy in "fall colors."

For the favor bags, I bought small brown paper bags. I cut out hearts using a heart hole punch. Then I used stamps that had a mason jar and "Thank You." I would dip them in gold ink, then teal, and then stamp the bags. It created a shimmery teal look!

Everyone seemed to enjoy the buffet! We didn't have a lot of candy left over!

Fall Wedding Series #5 - The Welcome Table

At my wedding, one of the tables I had was the Welcome Table. On this table I chose to have my bridal picture, guestbook, bubbles, etc.

(Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of the whole table. You can't see the "Welcome" burlap pendant banner, but it is similar to the one on my Cake Table!)

I decided to make my own frame for my bridal photo. I bought a plain frame and some sticks. I hot glued the sticks onto the frame. I cut out some burlap to use for the matting.

Before and After

For the bubbles, I came across a little bird cage to put them in that I spray painted gold, added a wooden heart with "Bubbles" written on it, and placed some moss at the bottom. I spruced up the bubbles by adding some jute string with a little heart cut of recycled brown paper with a hole punched in the middle.

My guestbook was my favorite item on the table! I decided to use a wood round that everyone would sign with a permanent marker. I used a wood burning tool to draw the heart and initials in the middle. The wood round looks great displayed in our home now!

Above the table, we displayed some photographs with some jute string and clothespins!

Fall Wedding Series #4 - The Cake and Present Tables

A lot of my wedding decor planning focused on the several different tables I had at the wedding. They were the cake table, present table, welcome table and candy buffet/favor table. This post and the next two are dedicated to these tables.

The Cake Table

All the tables had an ivory tablecloth, a burlap runner and burlap pendant banners.

I made a pendant template out of paper  and used it to trace out pendants on a long piece of burlap.

After I cut the pendants out and ironed them to make them flat, I used some stencils I found at the store, and with teal paint, I sponged the letters on to the pendants. 

 After the letters were dry, I used a glue gun and a long piece of jute string to put the banner together.

Finished banner! (I will write about the Welcome table in my next blog post!)

The Cake

The cake was made by Ambrosia Bakery. They did a beautiful job! The top and bottom layer was a chocolate cake with coconut filling, and the middle was a white cake with strawberry cream cheese filling. All was covered in buttercream icing. SO YUMMY! I can't wait to defrost the top layer for our anniversary! The decorations match our wedding invitation: the leaves, vines and heart at the top. The only problem I had is that the gold of the vines were not exactly the gold color we discussed.. I wanted it more of a browner color gold. But that's okay. It was still amazing!

The topper was a heart that I bought that I burned our initials into.

 The base was a huuuuuge wood round that I bought off of Etsy!

The Groom's Cake was made by my good friend Andrea. She made us a football field with Will's two favorite teams, his work logo in the middle, and a couple of lego figures I had made in our likeness! 

Other Cake Table Details

I also had lots of mason jars, our bouquets and champagne flutes on the table. The large pumpkin to the right was hallowed and had an opening that was supposed to hold the champagne, but they forgot to put the bottle in there. No biggie!

All the bouquets had a mason jar to hold them up around the cake. Each had a teal ribbon and jute string around it and a heart with the owner's initials.

I had these beautiful napkins made for the table as well! You can find them HERE.

The Present Table

Our wedding location had this cute little wood table that I decided to use for the present table. We decorated it with a banner, burlap runner, flowers, and a bird's cage on top of a wood round to hold cards. I wrapped it with ribbon and jute string and placed a heart that said "Cards" on it. I also had some moss at the bottom.

That's it for now! More tables to come!
