There are several ways of decorating a pew end. Pew arrangements range from the extravagant to the small. Lavish cascading arrangements, attached to the pews or candelabras, create a sense of opulence. However, the budget-minded can decorate by embellishing only every third or fourth pew and by being creative. For example, by using more texture and greens and fewer flowers, the arrangements can be made less expensive, but just as eye-catching. Here are some examples:
During the spring, flowering branches can be very effective. Summer and fall offers such an array of berries, pods, fruits and amazing foliage; they can be used in fabulous hand-tied arrangements for the pews. Later they can be transferred to chair-backs at the reception. In the winter, small swags of holly and evergreens will be wonderfully aromatic and they will add the perfect touch at the ceremony.
The dark wooden pews were lavishly decorated with white and pale pink cascading arrangements.
Cones, covered with aspidistra leaves, are filled with hydrangeas. Later the cones can be hung on chair-backs or they can be placed on window sills or on the buffet.
