Hi Guys,

I am getting married next year, and we are having the reception in a marquee. My fiancee thought that it would be a nice idea if I made some things for decorating inside the marquee (table ornaments etc etc), anything goes. Just wondering if anybody has any ideas. My equipment includes the basic tools, a router and table saw.

So – any ideas? Anything goes!

My son just got married and his wife had me cut down a tree on our family farm about 14 inches in diameter (was in a fence row) . We cut slabs about 1 1/2” thick for center pieces on each of the reception tables. The bride collected wine bottles and painted them in the wedding colors. She then placed silk flowers in these bottles. These table pieces really looked great on the tables. When the wedding was over the brides father took the wood home for use in his fire place – a good way to recycle wedding decorations !!!

Something might turn up if you search the site for ‘wedding’. There was a great cake stand a couple of months ago made from plastic coving and painted gold.

I would cut name plates for each family for each table and woodburn family name… just saying…. gives it a special touch letting the guest know you acknowledge them being there and they can take them home as gift….
