You can see our centrepieces in the previous post, but here were some small table details.
The favours - leather luggage tags. I changed the DeHavilland logo (many of the planes have this in the museum) to have our initials and wedding date. I hope it's a fun, useful treat!
My dad slaved away cutting all of the birch trees from our backyard (he needed to clear out an area so we decided to repurpose the trees!). He also slices a ton of small and large logs to hold the cake, candles and table numbers.
Brian researched all of the planes in the museum and each table showcased one. We took photos found online and turned them into pencil sketches with photoshop. They were printed on cardstock with all of the "specs" on the back (wingspan, top speed, history, etc.). We slid these into small pieces of birch trunks to keep with outdoor theme.
Our menus were printed with the logo on the woodgrain cardstock that was also used for the invitations and programs.
Here's a bit of a panned out view of the reception site. The tablesettings, table cloths, napkins, etc. were all basic white (ie: no additional charge). We did rent the white chairs because the ones available were burgundy office chairs and the arms didn't fit under the table!
We had three, round "head tables". The centre one for B2 and I and our BM and MOH. The other two were for the rest of the bridal party and their dates. These three tables had different tablecloths. We didn't have much choice, but the silver was good enough.
We placed the birch trees in pots behind the head tables with some lighting to highlight them. You can see a few of the centrepieces here. B2's sister also found us a ton of vintage mason jars. We filled them with sand from our beach and pillar candles from the dollar store and placed them everywhere.
They also served as vases for the bridesmaid bouquets to decorate the tables and receiving line area.
