One couple wanted all 12 tables to be themed and one of them was a Viking heritage, Norway cruise themed table. The groom was of Norwegian descent and it was their dream to take a cruise through the fjords and explore his Viking heritage. I made the “fjord in a box” and decorated with with the rune for love, 2 Viking ships and a sign that “points” to Dårlig Ulv Stranden” which is from Doctor Who (one the bride's favorite series) The houses are little Icelandic cottages suspended to look like they are sitting on a rise, surrounded by the Northern lights.
