Bye Bye Bunting - Five fun alternatives for decorating your venue

Couples often spend a long time agonising over the decorations for their tables; runners, flowers, napkins and so on - but how many of you have taken a moment and looked.. up? Filling the blank space that hangs above where your guests sit will not only add some serious wow-factor, but could end up saving you both time AND money - so keep those tables simple and reach for the skies...

Flower Clouds

These abstract, ethereal and dreamy bursts are a sure-fire way to add some serious luxury to your venue's ceilings; experiment with colours and textures and if you know you want to go big - get a florist on board to make sure they hit the mark.

Paper Birds

An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish and 1000 years of life - so this project will definitely take a little longer, but could just be worth it! Plus, even without the wish and near-immortality, they just look so. damn. good.

Petal strings, ribbons and flowers

Definitely one for the boho-carnival wedding day, these eclectic hangings could make for an epic DIY project, plus their laid-back style means there is a little more room for experimentation!

Not only will this create a beautiful, french-chateau vibe, but hanging herbs above your tables will fill the room with some incredible smells (just make sure you have a chat with your caterer to make sure that it won't overpower what's on offer). To keep it even more budget-friendly, you could give the bunches away to guests when they leave, so their mid-week meals will take them right back to your day!

Macrame planters

Another great way to combine decor with favours, these are a gorgeous way to add some boho 70s swag to your day. If you've got plenty of time you could give making some a go- otherwise there are plenty of brilliant macrame artists in the UK who could bring this vision to life for you.
