So often tucked into a corner for convenience, the prettiest weddings make their card tables something worth celebrating.
Take one of our cover couples, Katie and Ross, who transformed their card table into a stunning decorative feature. We loved their style so much that we simply had to show you how to create the look for your wedding, too.
So, how do you create a beautiful cards table?
Step 1: Collecting cards
You could use a wooden crate like Katie and Ross did, which can be kept with an organic finish or prettily painted. For a timeless touch, perfect for quirky city venues and country houses alike, try a traditional red post box. And for barn venues or rustic tipis? It simply has to be a hessian card sack…
Step 2: Dressing the table
Katie and Ross made their cards table pretty as well as practical by dressing it up with painted wine bottles and mugs of blooms. You can do the same without spending a fortune by using artificial flowers (reasons why you’ll love them here!) and by upcycling your own old mason jars or bottles. And for busy couples after a time saving solution, you can shop our pretty range of coloured and glass vases here…
Step 3: Stand out in style
By this point, your cards table is already looking beautiful. The finishing touch? To make sure it is well signposted, both to stand out as a decorative feature and to get your guests’ attention to pay it a visit. Cards bunting strung up above or a pretty sign encouraging good wishes are both strong contenders here. It’s also a great spot for an Instagram sign displaying your wedding hashtag, as Katie and Ross so effortlessly proved.
