Indian themed wedding table décor.

Here is the third in a series of posts about how we made our unique Indian themed wedding last year.

I kept things seasonal by using cyclamen which are vigorously flowering in September – selecting vibrant red to keep in theme with the reds and golds.

I chose terracotta pots for their warm colour and texture and came up with a design based on the Indian roofline shape used in my wedding invitations.


After setting up the template, my mum Sue, kindly and expertly handpainted each pot with the design using gold and black enamel paints.


I also liked the idea of having something that will continue to grow after the day, not fade away like cut flowers.

Here they are a year later in our rockery – they will always flower on our anniversary.
