Fun Wedding Decorations – Chalkboards & Candy Buffets


Category : Guest Posts, Wedding Decorations

Following on from the success of Gemma’s first guest post on Vintage Wedding Decorations, I was keen to get her to write another on the latest way to inject some fun into the decoration of your venues. There are loads of sites offering ideas and inspiration to help with this and Gemma has kindly put together some of the latest items she has available to help in your mission!

So, drum roll……Gemma!

At The Wedding of my Dreams we’re always on the lookout for fun new wedding trends and ideas for wedding table decorations. Our aim to help inspire you with ideas and decorations which will help make your day that little bit different form everyone else’s.

The best part about my job has to be going out and searching for new, individual or unusual wedding decorations. So when the Wedding Inspirer asked if I wanted a spot on her blog I couldn’t help but share my two favourite trends with you.

The first are our blackboard inspired buckets and signs. Perfect for brides having a black and white wedding theme or brides who just want to add a bit of fun, quirkiness and individuality to their day.

The blackboard wedding table signs are a great way to number your tables, they come on a stick so can either be placed in your table centre piece or put them in their own little jar or pot. I think they look extra cute in the little terracotta pots!

And you don’t have to stop there; they could add a lovely touch to your thank you bouquets as well.

If you’re looking for something a bit different for your tables then these buckets might be for you. They have a little blackboard on the front, ideal for your table numbers or table names. They’d make a great little present for young bridesmaids or pageboys as well, write their names on the front and fill with presents and goodies to keep them entertained!

My next favourite trend is just one I had to get involved with! Sweetie tables, or candy bars for all you American readers. I’ve seen a few weddings with them and just love the idea of setting up a traditional old fashioned sweet shop in the corner of the room – Mr and Mrs Candy Shop!

So when I stumbled across these gorgeous sweetie jars I knew we had to have them on The Wedding of my Dreams. Old fashioned glass sweetie jars will help create the look of a traditional sweet shop at your wedding. Each glass jar come with a lid one reads British Digestive Biscuits and the other English Quality Confectionery.

To complete the sweetie table and perhaps add some height we have vintage tiered cake stands and glass jars with hearts.

And don’t forget the silver sweetie scoops for that traditional sweetie shop feel, you could even use the blackboard signs as sweetie labels!

Unfortunately all these jars come empty! But that’s the fun part, now you can go out sweetie shopping and relive all those childish moments!


Thanks again Gemma – another fab post.
