A personalized banner creates a stately reception decoration when it's hung from greenery set on a mantel or tall table. To make, you'll need a 6-by-40-inch sheet of lightweight paper.

1. Trim top of banner so it gently curves in, creating an arc shape, then trim bottom so it curves out. Write couple's names.

3. Cut banner ends on a graceful angle; roll ends to curl.

4. Punch a hole near each end. Thread floral wire through holes; twist around trunks of cypress topiaries set two feet apart.

5. Tie on ribbon bows to cover wire. Tape coordinating ribbons on the pots.
