In this week’s Get the Look: Wedding Reception Themes, I wanted to give you some inspiration for your wedding reception table.

To bring a little warmth to the table, I’ve gone for a copper, gold and green colour palette using candlesticks, eucalyptus and crisp white porcelain to do so. I love candlesticks, and what I’ve done is use a range of sizes to add some depth, all of which I bought from Etsy for between £12.50 and £44 (or hireable from here). The best thing about this is that they make lovely memorabilia from your big day!

The matte gold cutlery and the gold ringed glasses are great ways to enhance the gold in the theme, which I found in M&S and Amazon respectively. But don’t worry, they’re also easily found for hire depending on what your budget plans are. I also used rich gold napkins from M&S to blend the golds and greens together.

As for the plates, I chose to go with a simplistic porcelain style (my own!) and I used marble floor tiles for placemats (which I found in B&Q for £5.70 each, or a little more for round ones from Etsy). These, coupled with the personalised place names, really add a bit of luxury to the table.

To finish off, I cut some eucalyptus sprigs and lay them flat on the table, making a simple way to save on florist costs without missing a lovely leafy presence.
