My husband-to-be and I are tying the knot on Valentine's Day and have no idea how to decorate our village hall venue. What would you suggest?
Joanna says: Village halls are fantastic as you're starting with a blank canvas, so the clever use of flowers can make them look stunning. If you're having long tables then I'd opt for garlands of foliage running along the centre with small vases full of pretty flowers and lots of candles threaded through – it's still the winter season so it's a great way to add a little romance of the occasion. Just because it's Valentine's you don't have to choose the traditional blooms, especially as prices will be at a premium, instead mix some red tones in with pinks, blues and ivory with lots of seasonal foliage and berries to give a rich luxurious look. For added wow factor, fairylights or candles will leave the space looking gorgeous. Village halls can often be very quirky so highlight these areas by adding foliage and lanterns along window ledges or wrapping beams with bunting and lights.
