table decore ( for wedding ) ideas

My friend is throwing together a wedding reception for next friday ( they are getting married via courthouse on Tuesday ) , the "theme" is kind of autumn-y ( the colors are orange and yellow) . It is suppose to be very casual ( there will be jean-wearing) ....... anyways we already bought some candles for the tables ( they will have orange fabric bows on them ) and we have enough for 2 at each table ( rectangle shape) ...but needs some ides on something else to add to the tables that doesnt cost a huge amount of money

  • Usually you can get some cute "fall" decorations at the dollar tree.

  • I would do centerpieces that involved pumpkins. You could cut holes out around the pumpkins and put some sort of candle or light inside, or you could leave them uncut but glue rhinestones all over them. I've seen some centerpieces involving pumpkins that were actually really pretty! Also, as favors, you could give out caramel apples, or those little tiny pumpkins. :)

  • Small bales of hay, little pumpkins stacked on top, with the candles surrounding it. They have fall colored craft leaves at the craft stores, you could lay those sparingly on the tables. Cattail wreaths or bunches would look nice with the color and theme too. I'm sure there are lots of ideas for autumn weddings, and it sounds like it will be really nice and a lot of relaxed fun. ;)

  • I saw a really cute thing in a magazine where they did a pumpkin topiary. They took an urn, put a pumpin so it sat on top but inside it, then stacked smaller pumpkins on top. I think they had about four in each one. They had pumpkins of different colors, too. You could use mini pumpkins too. They held them together with skewers. It was really cute!
