"This small crystal tree doubles as a wedding centerpiece & a table number stand." I'd put some of these around my house (minus the number) made with small branch pieces found in the yard and a string of beads.
Tea lights set in mason jars: I like this idea combined with frosted mason jars which is just a simple spray can. Place multiple jars at each table. We can get mason jars of all differing sizes at Goodwills in the area.
Diva - Table idea for st. patty's day - LOVE the ribbon idea! Patrick's Day Party: a simple and classic St. Patrick's Day table setting - a great example of how to incorporate Pantone's color of the year - Emerald - into your next tablescape!
Love the family style table setting rather than the usual round tables. The dark chairs make it look elegant and not washed out with too much white.t do the ceiling set up though if you're having it by the beach.
