How to Decorate this Space for My Wedding Reception?

Good Questions

Q: I rented a very ugly rustic community center for a wedding reception. It's all dark wood paneling. I need suggestions to make it elegant looking. The wedding is in October. These pics prove the desperateness of my situation - I am not supposed to pound any nails into the lovely wood paneling so I need some creativity to make it look not so much like a barn.Sent by: Denise
