Think decorations, but hanging from the ceiling. They don’t take up table space or floor space so you can go wild without worrying if you’ll have enough room. Plus, there’s something very enchanting and fairy-tale-like about having beautiful décor cascading down from above. Flowers, lights, get them all up high and watch your guests’ jaws drop when they walk in.
