Focal Point for large event - Rose Arbor

It depends on your budget and space as to how elaborate you want to make your arbor.

You can sometimes purchase the preformed wire ones.  Cover with garlands of greenery and silk roses.

It will make a nice entryway and also be a great place for photos to be taken.
