Spray down a paper runner as 'coasters' or place settings.
Old willow pattern plates with bright cutlery and stencilled initials for place settings.
Stack of love letters, sheet music of meaningful songs etc on a table with the guestbook.
Brightly patterned umbrellas for bridesmaids to use instead of parasols. Or to shade tables at an outdoor reception.
Mismatched chairs and patchwork table cloth with crystal glassware and lots of fresh flowers for an intimate dinner reception.
More mismatched chairs, and cutout paper garlands.
Delicate vintage china and antique silver spoons for a tea party.
Glass tea and coffee pots, decanters of dessert wines for after-dinner celebrations. This would look gorgeous with masses of candles.
Empty frames on a paper backdrop for guests to write messages in or to display seating plans.
