Pear Wedding Theme Inspiration

4 August 2010

We have a big, old pear tree in our garden and it’s begun sprouting fruit everywhere, bending each branch with heavy, plump green juicy pears!

How wonderful to take inspiration from your very own home. Here are some ideas for a ‘perfect pair’ theme.

Table Decorations - Your wedding reception tables offer lots of opportunities to decorate. Fill a large vase with for your centerpiece then spray plastic pears with layers of matt white paint. Have your guest’s names written on strips of white paper with pin ink and pin them to the pears using pearl-headed pins.

Cake - Your cake serves as a major decorating component so consider a cake topper with two pears. Alternatively, ask your baker to make pears covered with fondant or to incorporate real pears in your cake design.

Favours - Edible favours are doubly special and there are options galore for a pear theme such as chocolate dipped pears; a paper thin pear slice dipped in dark chocolate, wrapped in a cellophane bag and tied with a silk ribbon that can be personalized with a custom imprinted message. Of course, there are endless options for non edible favours too like pear soap or pear shaped candles.

Signature Drink - Serve delicious ear martini cocktails with vodka and pear liqueur.

Food - Serve poached pears drenched in chocolate sauce as part of your dessert to wow your guests.

Décor - Pear green is a hue of green that works really well with a variety of complimentary colours especially creams and whites.

Have fun scouring the internet and wedding magazines for inspiration.
