        1. PHOTO BALLOON CHANDELIER

Materials required: 

  • Photographs
  • Gas Balloons
  • Ribbons
  • Paper Puncher

Procedure:

1. Inflate the balloons and secure them tightly with a ribbon in a color of your choice.

2. Next, grab a paper punch and make holes on the top of each photograph, preferably in the center.

3. Now all you have to do is pass the loose end of the ribbon through the hole and tie it neatly. Once you are done tying the balloons and photographs together, suspend the balloons in the air and watch your photo balloon chandelier come alive.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Do ensure that you use gas balloons.
  • Depending on your budget, you can opt for Polaroid pictures or a good thick paper for printing the photographs.
  • The number of photographs must match the number of balloons so that each balloon has a floating photo at the end of it.
  • The number of balloons depends on the space but there should be enough to make the area look full once the balloons are suspended.
  • The balloon and ribbon can be in tones that match the theme of your function or in completely contrasting shades to attract attention.
  • You could even write some notes about the image behind each photograph to make it more engaging with all your guests.
  • This can only be done for an indoor function; all you need is one corner of your venue.
    2. THE TREE OF LIFE

Materials required:

  • Photographs
  • Rope String
  • Clothespin
  • Tree

Procedure:

1. Start by looking for that perfect tree at the venue. Once you make your pick, take a rope string and wrap it around the bark of the tree.

2. Bring out your favorite memories in the form of photographs and start clipping each picture to the rope with the help of a clothespin. Your tree of life is ready!

Things to keep in mind:

  • Ideally, a regular brown rope string with tiny wooden clothespin will work the best for this. Keeping the props in neutral shades will enhance your photographs.
  • The photographs could be colored, in greyscale or sepia tones. Whatever your choice may be, maintain the uniformity.
  • In the absence of a tree, you could use this technique to make a photo wall against a backdrop. Wooden planks, colored mount boards or textured vinyl can be your options for the framework.3. CENTRE-PIECE FOR TABLES

Materials required:

  • Photographs
  • Glass Bottles
  • Wooden Bamboo Sticks
  • Cardboard
  • Glue
  • Flowers
  • Water

Procedure:

1. First up, make the photo sticks. Cut pieces of cardboard in a square or rectangular shape, take a printed photograph and paste it on the center of a cardboard piece. Then paste each photo onto a bamboo stick to complete your photo sticks.

2. To assemble the center piece, take a nice looking glass bottle of your choice and throw in a couple of fresh flowers along with the stems. Add water until the bottle is half filled. Lastly add 2 or 3 photo sticks in each bottle.

3. Place a bottle on each table and watch your guests gush about your gorgeous centerpieces.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Make sure the size of the cardboard is slightly bigger than the photographs as the excess cardboard on each side will give the effect of a border to your pictures.
  • The photo sticks should be taller than the flowers so that they stand out.
  • Do ensure that the size of the photos is the same. The height of the photo sticks can vary as per your choice.
  • Additionally, you could wrap the body of each bottle with a paper and label the table numbers on that.

  • Photo Frames
  • PVA Glue
  • Ribbons

Procedure:

1. Insert photos in a frame.

2. Cut a piece of a ribbon and paste its ends at the back of the frame, one on each corner with some PVA glue.

3. Hang a photo frame on the first chair of each row and let your memories show.

Things to keep in mind:

  • The ribbon should be solid enough to hold the weight of the frame.
  • The color of the frame should be different from the chair so that it stands out.
  • You can have the brides’ photographs on one side and the grooms on the other.
