During your reception, the sweetheart table is like your little oasis. It’s a place to relax and enjoy your wedding with your new partner in life. So I think it’s nice to make that table really special. One way to do that is to decorate it with handmade or meaningful items.
These are 5 do-it-yourself projects that you can use to make a sweetheart table truly unique.
DIY Vintage Book Table Runner
Give new life to worn book pages with a table runner made using a decorative edging punch. This would also be a wonderful idea for old maps for a travel theme, or classic posters for a movie or rock and roll theme. Actually, the possibilities are endless.

DIY Dinner Plate Chargers
There are so many possibilities for what you can write on these dinner chargers to personalize them for you and your honey. A favorite love poem, or even your vows would make these special. But I think what I love most about the idea is that you can reuse them on your anniversary and relive your wedding day.
DIY Fabric Poppy Flowers
There’s just something really sweet about handmade flowers. I’m a big fan of anything that you can incorporate into your home from your wedding day. And I can see these flowers having a special place in a kitchen or livingroom as a beautiful reminder.

Hand-drawn Table Runner
Like the hand painted dinner chargers above, there are lots of possibilities for these table runners made with bleach pens. You can do simple patterns that relate to your wedding theme or meaningful words or phrases. While the book table runner has a vintage feeling, this table runner idea has more of a bohemian style.
