We aren't getting married until July 02, 2011, but we're trying to find the perfect place for our wedding reception around the Ames area under a budget. Right now we are thinking Gates Hall in Nevada, but the only problem is you are only allowed to use free standing and table decorations. I am having trouble trying to find any free standing decorations we could use. We haven't booked Gates Hall yet because we can't until this July. I am not very creative, so if anyone can help me think of any free standing decoration ideas that would be great! Thanks!
