Silver Dollar
What about a family style dinner reception with long rectangular tables and use Silver Dollar eucalyptus as a table runner with candles in lieu of the more traditional fabric decor.

Or create a wedding wreath for a centrepiece, or to decorate your gift or guest book table using silver dollar eucalyptus leaves. Wrap them around a chalk board or wooden signs to give your simple decor a gorgeous accent that matches any natural, bohemian or green themed wedding.

Looking for a killer chair accent? Grab yourself some seeded eucalyptus and drape it over the chair with a single flower accent, like a rose, to cut flower costs. Stick your table numbers on a vase and use it as a reception table centerpiece accented with seeded eucalyptus to match a country farm themed wedding.

Create candle wreaths for centerpieces on round reception tables.

Alternatively, create mini-wreaths to serve as napkin holders at place settings for the reception.
