Reception styling inspiration for a Fig Tree wedding

Dining inside the beautifully converted farmhouse at Fig Tree Restaurant sits elevated, showcasing the stunning backdrop of Byron Bay’s iconic Lighthouse and Julian Rocks.

The interiors of Fig Tree’s indoor dining space, with freshly painted white walls on original timber, is a beautiful blank canvas to add your own personal touches. Keeping it simple with natural textures and linen complement wonderfully, as does bursts of seasonal colours and metallic finishes if you’re looking to make more of a statement.

The restaurant also invites you to showcase hanging installations or fairy lights to really add that instant wow factor. Discreet white hooks are placed across the ceiling strategically next to light fittings, so you have full flexibility of setting the mood and ambience of your reception. Check-out The Wedding Shed’s catalogue of decorative pendant lighting, chandeliers, letter lights and neon signs as well as Sketch & Etch for more neon and customised signage. Fairylight or Edison bulb installations are also a fool-proof way to uplift the ambience when dusk falls.

The Wedding Shed also has endless options when it comes to tablescape styling. Their extensive range of tableware, from crockery, cutlery, glassware to linen, will complement the texture and hue of your florals, bridal attire or simply the table itself. Accentuate and complete the look even more by adding gorgeous barnacle clusters, coconut tea-lights, coloured pillar candles, amethysts… the list goes on.

If you’re keen to explore some alternate styling ideas, indoor plants and balloon installations are certainly fun options to fill empty spaces, frame or create a unique centrepiece in the room. Northern Rivers Plant Hire is our local go-to for beautiful Australian and exotic plant hire, with a variety of pots to also choose from. For a grand scale, extraordinary lush backdrop, get in touch with Big Leaf Boutique. And Bang Bang Balloons have been creating some pretty amazing bespoke installations for both ceremonies and receptions. Check them out below.

There are many options to decorate your dining space at the Fig Tree, however, the biggest drawcard for us would be the ceiling to floor length windows that expose the beautiful hinterland and ocean views. A split air-conditioning system has been fitted to cool guests during the humid, sub-tropical times of year and warm them throughout winter.
