We really believe that no matter what style your wedding will be or how much money or time you have, Our Tree Slices
are just what you need! Below we have 10 ideas of how you can use them on your big day!
1. Table Centres
Pretty much the most obvious answer, but it's proven that the best thing you can put in the middle of your table is a tree slice, with maybe a candle, ornaments or the table name (preferably topped off with some British Flowers).
2. Stick them in Empty Windowsills
Got an empty windowsill that you don't know how to fill? No worries, our Tree Slices do a great job of holding decorative bottles or candles to fill that space for you!
3. As Decorations Themselves
Yes, you can paint them or write messages on them, and they will work as perfect decorations. (We recommend blackboard paint and a white paint marker).
4. As Plates
If you really want to jump in and embrace that all natural wedding feel why not replace all finery with wooden slices (You may need to varnish them well before using them), your guests will LOVE eating off of a hefty wooden block. And if you don't want to go that extreme...
5. As a Wedding Cake Base
Order a large one and use it as a base for your wedding cake, even if your cake is very traditional and the rest of your wedding is a bit more rustic, this never fails to look amazing!
6. As 'Heel Protectors'
Have the Bride and Bridesmaids stand on top of these for their photos so that their heels don't dig into the ground! (You can also help some of your more vertically-challenged guests by giving them a little boost!)
7. Make a Guest 'Log'
Order a few large ones and paint them, you can get your guests to sign them instead of a guest book and then use them to decorate your home!
8. As Wedding Favours
If you've got lots of time (and a bit of money) you could give them away as wedding favours, paint messages onto them tailored to each guest - you could then put it under their dinner plate ready for them to take home!
9. As the Order of the Day
As with above you could write your Order of the Day on them and put them under your guests plates, they can then take them home to remember your big day.
10. Use them in all of the photos.
They are just amazing to photograph, so make sure your photographer has access to a few. Simple photos like ones of your shoes, jewellery, rings and flowers will all be enhanced with a tree slice or two!
...and many, many more!
(In fact I thought of two more as I was writing this! 11: When it gets to that time of the night where everyone is a bit merry you could use them as a makeshift game of Stacking Blocks and 12: Stack a few, they make a cracking doorstop!)
