1. Want to decorate with something other than flowers? Use candles at different heights & sizes to create an effortless yet dramatic look. This trick is sure to impress your guests!

2. Use calligraphy for your name cards! They’ll look perfect with any tablescape and will make your guests feel extra special.

3. Create your own bar set up where guests can mix and muddle their own specialty cocktails.

4. Add some fun pillows and bright pops of color for a more relaxed party.

5. If you really want to go all out, bring in some cozy furniture and market lighting to give your event some atmosphere.

6. And don’t forget a cute favor! Make sure your guests have something fun to take home at the end of the night to remember their fun evening.
