Reception Table Backdrop

When we were planning Staci's wedding and reception last summer, we wanted to stay within budget.
We wanted the reception to be festive and fun, with a bit of a tropical feel--you might have seen our "Fruity Palm Tree" post; if not, take a look.

While we wanted a backdrop for the head table (which no one sat at much anyway), we wanted to keep it simple.  We decided on balloons to cover the wall/partitions.  I found a good deal on balloons at partycity.com.  For helium, I purchased the tanks at Wal-mart; I recall we had to buy 3 so we had plenty.  Family members pitched in to fill, tie and place the balloons.  It worked out pretty well, our little assembly line.

I found the "Mr.& Mrs. Forever" plaque at deseretbook.com but you could easily use a chalkboard.

Summer is the time for weddings--well, so tradition says.  You might even be attending a few this summer.  It is fun to see how creative and unique the decor can be!
