I am looking for simple but creative decoration ideas for a girl's high school tennis banquet?
By gina fast from Denver, CO
I'd look online, maybe google images of vintage tennis photos or get tennis memorabilia on ebay; magazines, photos, etc. or xerox pics from library books on the history of tennis. It would be fun for the girls to see how women used to wear long dresses to play tennis.
You could also find "fun fact" info about women's tennis history and type it up and print the fun facts to place on the tables at each place setting.
You could get old tennis balls and cut them in half and use them to hold candy or a small flower floating in it (make sure to keep the tennis ball stable by sitting it on a cut up cardboard tube.)
You could get copies of the logos of all the Major tournaments: US Open, Wimbledon, etc. and use those for centerpieces. I'd use empty tennis ball cans for vases.
Hope this gives you some help.

I am planning a tennis member-guest event and need some relatively inexpensive decoration and centerpiece ideas.
