Streaming sunshine, fragrant flowers and herbs, zesty lemon – this Mediterranean wedding reception theme is a showstopper for all the senses.
Team fresh sprigs of aromatic herbs like rosemary and basil with heads of wheat and bright bold sunflowers to nail the Mediterranean flower style. Incorporate olive branches if you can, too, then begin to introduce the subtler details: scattered lemons, rusty metal planters and hessian wraps, as well as yellow colour accents.
Swooning over this warm and romantic Mediterranean lemon reception theme? Here’s how you can recreate the look for your own dream day!
Let your bolder lemon reception theme do the talking by choosing subtler, more neutral tones for your other decor. This white wicker heart ticks all the boxes thanks to its muted shade and natural materials. Hessian, wood and slate details will also work well.
Complement scattered fresh lemons on your table tops with smaller accents of the same colour. You could add small olive branches or rosemary sprigs to these miniature buckets to enhance the sunshine tones and make your reception smell sensational!
Grey and yellow make the perfect pairing, as the soft coolness of the grey sets the vibrant yellow tones alight. Replicate this couple’s success by choosing metal planters and tubs with chalkboard labels for your table numbers, developing your rustic Mediterranean theme and the laid-back loveliness it inspires. Choosing a selection of complementary but neutral background colours also prevents the lemon reception theme from becoming overdone.
Simple centrepieces can be the best, as this couple so brilliantly demonstrate with their jars and vases piled high with lemons and limes. It is so simple to achieve, but packs a big, bright and vibrant punch, bringing your lemon reception theme to life. Simply purchase jars and vases like this one, fill with fresh fruit and enjoy!
Complete your lemon tablescape with fun coloured details. This couple opted for lemon and white striped straws, perfect for popping in your cocktails, but these lemon striped candy bags would make a great addition to your sweets table, too!
