TA­BLE YOUR CRE­ATIV­ITY

Martha Stewart Weddings - - ONE AUTUMN EVENING -

Think be­yond fresh flow­ers: Pretty pa­per, plas­tic, even leather cutouts make re­cep­tion ta­bles pop. 1. This gar­den-in­spired pen­dant light ($93, tord­boon­tje.com) is fash­ioned from white sheet plas­tic; hang a few above fam­ily-style ta­bles. 2. A nap­kin tied with per­fo­rated leather trim ($8/yd., leather­im­pact.com), a modern plate, and a tri­an­gu­lar place card make a fun, con­tem­po­rary set­ting. 3. Del­i­cate flow­ers—cre­ated with an as­sort­ment of craft punches for dif­fer­ent ef­fects—en­liven glass can­dle­hold­ers; lightweight pa­per and vel­lum let the light shine through (vel­lum, 8½" by 11", in Pas­tel Green and Pas­tel Pink, $19 for 100 sheets, pa­perand­more.com; Martha Ste­wart craft punches, ama­zon.com). 4. Ro­man-nu­meral ta­ble num­bers feel very New World when cut from yel­low pa­per: Sim­ply fold it into tent shapes and se­cure with dou­ble-sided tape (visit marthastew­artwed­dings.com/ ta­ble-card to down­load the tem­plate).
