So Bees…This is what my reception venue looks like without anything. It comes with the candelabras, so I would love to use them to save some money! My colors are purple and pink…orchids are our flower. It is in St. Louis on the 42nd floor of a historic buildingand there are beautiful views of the arch so I am not too concerned with decoration, but I do want it to be beautiful. Any ideas??

I’m in StL as well! I am so jealous that you have views of the arch! It will be beautiful. :). What if you sprinkled flower petals on the tables?

Can you use table linens or runners to also add in some color which coordinates with your flowers?

I agree with the two recommendations above…my first idea was sheer purple and pink overlays or napkins with petals around the candelabras.

I just google imaged this but instead of putting candels in them you could use flowers and then put tea lights on the table like this. If you bought flowers that are fuller then it would be easy to do this. Or you could make mini pomader balls!

This is what we did at our daughters wedding. It was a 1/2 pomander made with fresh flowers. We had 3 different height C & B vases with spider mums. Ps vases are for sale. Have 45

I think a flower ring around the candelabras would look great, fresh or fake. Keep the candelabra as a candle holder and light some votives in your wedding colors, real candle light is so romantic! Also, like the other bees said, adding a runner or overlay will really pop your color.
The candelabras are tall, so bring the guest’s focus down to the flowers around the base. Or alternate every other and do some flowers in the candelabra candle holders (like the pomanders) and some around the base (like a flower ring)

Thanks so much ladies, I love the pomanders! I would have never thought of that!
