You’re hosting an at-home wedding for good reasons – it will be small, intimate and create memories that will last a lifetime. However, it also comes with tremendous pressure to have your home looking perfect for the big day. The right home furnishings from Twin Star Home™ will help your wedding and reception go smoothly. Here are some ideas.
Start Your At-Home Wedding with These Home Furnishings
Every wedding must have the basics: two people in love, incredible food and your most cherished friends and family. For a perfect place to lay out a spread, the Swedish Classics Accent Table (ET7541-TH438) features a Baltic Gray top and Baltic White trestle legs to complement weddings of all themes. Its front and back panels can be raised to increase the table’s surface space to 32.5” for plenty of room for your savory appetizers, main course buffet and dessert selection throughout the reception. When the big day is over, you can collapse the panels down to its original size of 18”.
For a place to display silverware that doubles as a gift collection space, consider the Swedish Classics Secretary Desk (ODP7542-I645). When closed, it looks like a typical sideboard, but when you open up its workspace, the possibilities are endless. The slotted shelves are perfect for napkins and silverware, while the desk surface is sturdy enough to put out various sizes of plates and bowls. The top shelf is a great spot for gift bags and boxes, while the desk’s six letter slots keep any cards secure. Its other features include:
- Two AC and two USB power ports to plug in extra speakers or charge devices
- Two lower drawers for ample storage of party supplies
- Sophisticated Baltic Gray finish
- Pale brass hardware
- Dentil molding for a traditional look
Light and simple, a coffee table like the one above can offer both lower storage space and a perfect spot for appetizers.
Perfect Home Furnishings for the Ultimate Drink Station
Of course, every wedding needs a drink station. For the beer and soda drinkers at your reception, the Enterprise Freestanding Beverage Cabinet (EC9822-LC-NC10) (shown below as part of the Enterprise collection) will make your job as a host or hostess that much easier. With the ability to chill beverages up to 35°F below room temperature, it has a 48 liter capacity with room for four 16 ounce soda bottles on the top shelf, eight 16 ounce bottles on the bottom shelf, and four 16 ounce bottles in the door. You can even create a custom storage pier by pairing the cabinet with the Enterprise Universal Top Storage Cabinet (EC9822-US-NT01) for a place to display water bottles and ice buckets.
What’s a wedding without wine? Removing the electric fireplace insert in the Infinity Wine Cabinet (19CFA30610-PG03) makes for the perfect place to store up to eight wine bottles, as it features two adjustable and reversible slotted shelves. The top drawer is perfect for corkscrews, coasters and cocktail napkins, while its Old Wood White finish embodies a classic wedding style. When all the wine disappears, you can put the fireplace insert back in place and enjoy the rest of the warmth and ambiance of realistic flames.
Home Furnishings to Get Your Groove On
No wedding is complete without music. From the songs played in the ceremony to the music that keeps everybody dancing during the reception, you need an easy way to stream music for a fabulous event. Set your playlist up and forget the worry of sound interruption with the reliable Uptown Loft™ Bluetooth Compatible TV Stand (26CMS6490-TM435). The two integrated, home-theater quality speakers are compatible with any Bluetooth® enabled device, so you can play the couple’s choice for their first dance and sentimental dances with their parents easily. Perfect for entertaining, it also features extra wine storage with a slotted shelf that holds six bottles.
If your wedding is in the winter, the Don’t Fret Bluetooth® Compatible TV Stand (26CMS6498-F959) allows you to stream music throughout your big day while enjoying the comforting warmth from its optional ClassicFlame® Electric Fireplace. You can even gather your friends and family around to enjoy a slideshow set to music celebrating the new couple and giving everyone a moment to get cozy in front of the realistic fire. With a modern white finish, this TV stand also includes storage for up to 13 wine bottles.
Cozy Home Furnishings for the Ultimate Mood Lighting
Mood lighting at any wedding reception is one of the most memorable aspects of the whole room – aside from the cake and the bride’s gown, of course. Instead of fussing with centerpieces with candles that will likely blow out before the night is over, why not go for home furnishings that can complement any wedding theme?
A duraflame 28” Rustic Electric Lantern with Infrared Heat and Remote Control (10ILH8973) placed strategically around the main room of your party will do the trick. You eliminate the worry of open flames, while creating cozy warmth that keeps your guests comfortable on a cooler night. Some of its top features include:
- Infrared Quartz Heater that maintains the air’s natural humidity levels
- Three selectable brightness levels with and without flickering to suit any room
- Adjustable downlights
- Long-lasting and energy-saving LED technology
- Eco-friendly design that does not emit any emissions
- Remote control operation
Another great way to create ambiance for the wedding at home is to style a wall mantel for the big day. A wall mantel electric fireplace adds warmth if needed, but also adds a glow that reflects the magic of the day in any season – with flame effects that work with or without the heat. And decorating the mantel with photos and mementos of the happy couple is just one more way of styling a mantel to fit life’s best occasions.
