A yellow and purple colour combination lays the foundation for endless reception decor ideas. You can change the overall look of the reception simply by mixing and matching different yellow and purple shades. The contrasting colour duo sets the stage for breezy spring and summer-inspired reception decor; use pastel hues when planning a summer soir�e or garden party. Richer purple hues take on an opulent look when complemented by antique gold finishes.

Yellow and Purple Bouquets

Combine yellow and purple flowers for simple and eye-catching reception table decor. Fill vintage cut crystal vases with a combination of vibrant blooms, such as lilacs and yellow tulips, freesias and Gerber daisies, or purple hyacinth and sunflowers. Place several flower-filled vases along the length of reception tables.

Spring-Inspired Decor

Create a vibrant spring-inspired reception table centrepiece using fresh items. Fill a large round or square vase with water and sliced lemon rings. If you use small Meyer lemons, place the entire fruit into the vase. Enhance the vases with fresh-cut purple flowers, such as irises and tulips. Accent the tablescape with clear glass bowls filled with sunny yellow lemons.

Color-Coordinating Textiles

Decorate the reception with pastel-hued fabrics to create a charming garden-inspired space. Cover the reception table with a fresh white linen tablecloth. Lay a lavender-coloured runner down the centre of the table, over the tablecloth. Roll butter yellow cloth napkins and secure them with silver rings accented with dried flowers; attach lavender buds to the rings using a hot glue gun. Drape chairs with white linen and accent them with butter yellow tie-backs.

Rich and Regal Decor

Infuse a reception with an elegant, regal feel by using a rich colour scheme and soft fabrics. Cover tables with plush plum-coloured velvet tablecloths. Top tall gold fleur-de-lis-shaped candleholders with dark purple votives. Suspend an antique gold chandelier holding purple candles over the table. Fill a burnished gold vase with sophisticated white roses and purple stargazer lilies.
