Wedding To Remember

Unique decorating tips to personalize your wedding

If you are like most of us you have been dreaming and planning your wedding day since you were a child. This is your special day and you want it to be perfect.

Yes, this is all going to happen and you are going to have one of those weddings that people will talk about for years to come. As you begin to build a lifetime of memorable events with your mate, here are some suggestions to make your wedding truly personal with some unique decorating ideas.

S. A. Maxwell, a leading wallpaper company renowned for their cutting edge designs and their flair for color, suggests decorating your reception tables right down to the smallest detail in ways you never thought possible with wallpaper borders. Wallpaper borders can add that creative touch to your wedding.

No matter what color you have selected, Maxwell has a color and design to complete your dreams. Jaima Brown, Director of Design for S. A. Maxwell, believes that you can bring your garden inside by using floral borders on your table tops. Enhance your guest tables and head table by following these suggestions:

Lavender - the color of royalty. Roses equal romance. How does one use a wallpaper border for tabletop decorating? S. A. Maxwell's "Country Chic" collection features an exquisite cabbage rose border in lavender and creme. Add style to your tables by using either creme or lavender tablecloths. Place the 10-inch wide cabbage rose border in lavender down the center of the table and cut at both ends. Soft lavenders, pink blushes and yellows are sizzling hot colors in decorating as well as bridesmaids' apparel. Complete your table setting with white china, lavender cloth napkins and place dried lavender rose petals directly on the tablecloth and napkins to add the finishing touches to your fairy tale day. "Country Chic" also features many other styles and colors.

Sophisticated in Pink - breathtaking. Pink - real men wear pink and wear it well. It's a captivating color for the blushing bride and groom. A magnificent magnolia border from the "Coordinates" wallcovering collection from L.V. Emmert Studio, a division of S. A. Maxwell, has a beautifully sculptured edge. This enhances your wedding style and brings color and unique design to your tabletop. Use our 8-inch pink sculpted magnolia border down the center of a white linen tablecloth or hang it along the front of the head table or around the head and guest tables. To attach the border to the table edge, use either Velcro, double-faced tape or staples. Complete the look with white china, burgundy napkins and soft pink candles. Very formal, yet chic.

A Touch of France - Provence style. Flowing hydrangeas bring the heart of France into your wedding day. The sunny side of Provence has influenced the use of the color yellow into America and has brought it into the forefront in decorating and fashion. Yellow combined with blue exudes a French flair. S. A. Maxwell's "Lincoln Park" wallcovering collection features a beautiful yellow hydrangea border. Use this dramatic 10-inch floral border as decorative accents to your wedding cake, gift, dessert and receiving tables.

Be daring and be different on your wedding day. Enhance your wedding by using S. A. Maxwell's beautiful wallpaper borders.
