Peacock wedding reception ideas
Follow the colour scheme suggested by the feather. (Peacock feather. image by sabrihayes from Fotolia.com)

Add a touch of Gothic or a hint of the renaissance to your reception when you use peacocks and their feathers in your wedding reception. The peacock feather suggests the colour choice and decoration theme for the reception. Be creative as you mix the feather and peacock into the traditional reception decor.

Decorations

The peacock feather gives you a colour palette of bright aqua, rich teal, vivid emerald, intense lime and a soft white for the fabric materials and decorations. A solid aqua blue tablecloth set with bright lime green plates and wine glasses create a peacock ambience. Continue the theme with a fan-folded turquoise napkin inside the plate or a pocket-folded one with a peacock feather and silverware nested in the pocket. Include peacock feather pens for guests as wedding favours.

Centrepiece

A peacock designed container filled with teal blue and purple orchids trimmed with blue Toscana kale leaves creates an exotic centrepiece as does a tall large glass container filled with limes and peacock feathers. Or, use a peacock-designed vase holder with white carnations dyed teal blue, emerald green and bright aqua colours. Another option is filling a glass vase with cut glass beads of aqua, green and teal before adding several peacock feathers.

Cake

A wedding cake iced in teal with mulit-coloured peacock feathers piped on the sides, instead of flowers carries the theme through the reception. Or, consider an actual peacock created out of sugar as a topper for the cake rather than the traditional bride and groom. The cake should be several layers and iced in the colours of the feather or wedding colours used for decorations.
