I am a transplant to the Charlotte area, just like many others. I was nervous about planning a wedding while I was working 40+ hours and my family and bridesmaids weren't close by to help. I got the name of Table Decor and More when I booked my reception hall. I was amazed that it was a one stop shop. I was able to get my food, flowers, dj, photographer, bartenders, cake and decorations all through one place. I was nervous at first because the cost was so much cheaper as a package, then the quote I had received from a local catering company for just the food. I thought maybe it was too good to be true. Well this was one time that I am glad I took a chance and went for it. Jerri was awesome and so was her entire team. The photographer that we worked with was phenomenal, the food was delicious, centerpieces were gorgeous, cake was amazing. I can't tell you how wonderful everything turned out. It was the best feeling to have a flawless gorgeous wedding and be able to save my family a ton on the cost! Jerri did an outstanding job with everything. She is a perfectionist and it shows. I will definitely be recommending her to my local friends when they get married, without question.-
I just wanted to tell you thank you so
much for everything you did to make mine and Trey's day so special!! I cannot tell you how many compliments I have received about the reception, flowers, food, etc (I could go on and on). Everyone keeps telling me how beautiful everything was and how amazing the food was. I have heard on multiple
occasions it was the prettiest wedding they had ever been to and that it was the best food they have ever had at a reception. I've also had multiple people ask about you and how I found you, so I make sure to brag, not that you have any problem filling your schedule!! I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for everything and let you know what I had heard. I could not have had a more special day
and I hated to see it end!! Trey and me joke that we should just have another one so we can do it all over again!
When you wish upon a star....you dream of the fairy tale!. A wedding and reception is something that girls dream of from the time they are born. Brides want that day to be a fairy tale and everything they ever imagined. My day was that and much much much more. After having my rehearsal dinner Jerri called us to go and see the reception set up and immediately upon walking in I was filled with tears of joy in how breathtaking the entire room was. I felt like Cinderella. The centerpieces were amazing we had a beautiful set up with tall vases with black and clear gems hanging down the middle and a beautiful array of red roses. Those were alternating with other tables that had beautiful silver trees with hanging votive candles. Every one raved of how breathtaking the centerpieces were and I still love looking at all of the amazing pictures. Her photographer is one of the best. She captured every memory I could of asked for and so much more. The DJ kept the party hopping and we had a great time. Everyone was out on the dance floor. The food was amazing. The pork tenderloin was the best I had ever had as well as the delicious cheese tortellini in a sundried tomato alfredo sauce. My cake was so beautiful, so moist and flavorful. Jerri and her staff are so warm and amazing. They truly make the worries and stresses of the big day vanish in knowing the exceptional work that they do. Jerri has a true passion and art for which she does. She is truly amazing!! If you are looking for a fairy tale wedding all under one roof then this is definitely the place to go. She not only does an amazing job, but she also cares for her brides and every part of the planning that she can help to ease stress she does!
We can not say enough great things about Table Decor and More!! Jerri went above and beyond on our daughters wedding!! We had no idea what we were doing and Jerri helped us so much with keeping within our budget and still having the wedding of our daughters dreams. She also did a great job with the honeymoon planning and found Erika and Ryan a great package in Mexico.
The reception location was at a lodge so the decor was not very elegant but Jeri and her staff came in and worked magic! Not only did she create a beautiful room for the reception she also helped us with the table favors, which we would never have gotten done without her!!
Our food was so delicious, especially the tenderloin! All of my friends and family still talk about how great everything tasted and how smooth the reception went. We would highly recommend Table Decor and More to anyone planning to get married. Jerri took care of everything and the evening was so relaxing and fun for our family.
Thank you so much Jerri for everything!!

Best Food EVER.
I can't begin to thank Jerri & her staff for all they did for my wedding. My family and friends are still talking about how amazing it was...the food - heaven - we have eaten in some of the best restaurants in the USA, it her food is comparable to any of them. Now on to decor.... amazing, it should have been on a wedding show, I ca not believe how she transformed the rooms. Table Decor did my ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and I would not change a thing - I only wish I had maybe booked an extra hour, nobody wanted to leave! Jerri took my calls and e-mails night and day, I was always able to reach her and she was always there to assure me of whatever I was freaking out about at the time. I had a high end wedding and would absolutely hire this team to work with again. Jerri was kind, understanding, full off knowledge and never made me feel like a bridezilla. The most important day of my life, was by far the best day I have ever had!!! Thanks a million!!!!
Would not recommend. First off, I want to say that the decor at my wedding was beautiful. The tables and chairs were set up nicely and was exactly how I pictured it. Also, the wait staff was very friendly. That's where all my compliments stop. Jerri is very unprofessional. She is pushy and overbearing and if you do not like something she does she'll do it her way regardless. As soon as I arrived to my reception venue and she came out, one of the first things out of her mouth was how my flowers were not the exact shade of orange as my wedding colors and were a pink shade of orange. I did not go with her for my flowers so I think it was dirty that on my wedding day, she would bash my bouquet. Once we got into the reception, my husband and I were the first to get food. All of the food wasn't even out when we went through the line and the food was lack luster. She spoke so highly of her food and we were excited to try it. Come the wedding day, it all tasted prepackaged and there is not ONE thing I can recall that tasted good. I had also paid to have a keg at my wedding that I went out and purchased myself. Most of the beer served was poured from the keg to a pitcher and then served, and in turn, all the beer served was flat. Not to mention that after the reception when my husband and I had left, she tried to take the keg home as if it were a gift to her. Thank goodness my brother in law was there to get it so we could get our deposit back on the return of it. After the wedding she hounded me to leave a review of the services provided and I refrained from doing so in order to be nice. When I did leave a review it was a very minimal, "Liked: Decor Disliked: Food" and Jerri emailed me 7 months after the wedding to complain about the review I had given her. If given the choice to do it all over again, I would not have chosen this company and have made effort, and even more so now, to sway people from choosing this vendor.
Shocked! Didn't bash the bouquet, when I saw color was not the same I asked, because I was afraid I got it wrong (I didn't). They chose a keg & yes in order to faster serve guests, we poured from the keg to a pitcher & I did offer to take the keg back to my shop,so they could pick it up later. I will put our food against anyone's. I was just awarded the Platinum A award by the NC health department, which is given only to the top 50 top ranked restaurants in NC for cleanliness.
Expectations exceeded. Jerri and her staff were amazing! They all go the extra mile to make sure things run smoothly. The food was fabulous and we had two formers chefs as guest and they loved the food especially the wedding cake. I wanted the over the top wedding and got WAY over the top wedding. Loved everything & couldn't have done it without them.
The most important thing a couple should focus on the day they get married is each other! Let Jerri Patterson and her staff handle the rest!
Table Decor and More delivered a truly tailored and memorable experience not only to ourselves but left our guest so impressed that there was a buzz about it for weeks after.
Jerri took the time to get to know us and found out what our expectations were only to exceed them. The lighting and outdoor fixtures she set up created such a fluid and friendly atmosphere that was visually welcoming to all of our guest. Each table and stand up table tops were draped in fresh linens and topped with center pieces that showcased a combination of flowers, vines and functional lanterns which really added to the ambiance. The staff was very professional, extremely courteous and attentive to the needs of guest contributing to the tier one experience. The food was well arranged and offered the kind of flavors you went back asking for seconds and thirds! The attention to detail was shown and seen everywhere you looked and it all match and made sense. Everything was perfect!
Jerri Patterson is an artist and she uses Table Decor and More to create! She creates smiles, laughter, wonder, joy, amazement,...she creates memories! If you are looking for a stress free one stop shop that handles all the logistics while you enjoy the moment, don't hesitate to contact Table Decor and More. You are already on the site and are reading these reviews. I am confident that if you use Table Decor and More, you will be writing a positive review yourself and endorsing Jerri Patterson.
Thank you Jerri for all you have done! It was magical!
The Parlier-Shire Dream Wedding 5/8/10.
I was married on May 8, 2010, and I had a fantastic wedding and reception thanks to Jerri Patterson! I had heard about Table Decor & More while attending a friend's wedding in 2008. I was absolutely in awe at her reception. Everything was so impeccable, and the food was delicious. So, when I became engaged a year later, I had to meet with Jerri because I wanted that same kind of experience for my future husband and myself.
Since I was never one of those girls who had every detail of their wedding planned practically since birth, it was very nice to sit down with someone like Jerri who has lots of wedding experience. It took a while for me to decide on colors for the wedding, and Jerri was very patient with me. I also had to make changes on flowers and other decorations a couple of months before the wedding, but Jerri was very understanding and helpful.
When I first started planning my wedding, I was truly amazed and overwhelmed by all of the details that go into creating a wedding/reception. Thankfully, Jerri was so proficient and had so much to offer with her company. She was creative, had lots of ideas, and was very honest with me.
Since my fiance and I were paying for the wedding, we needed to know what everything was going cost up front so that we could have everything paid for before the wedding. Jerri created an awesome wedding that fit our budget, and the payments were spread out so that we could pay for it easier.
One of the best things about planning with Table Decor & More was having one person to oversee and take care of EVERYTHING. That was truly priceless! On my wedding day, I just wanted to be able to show up without a care in the world and enjoy everything, and Jerri delivered that for me.
When I walked inside the reception room at the hotel prior to the wedding to see what everything looked like, I felt like I had stepped into a fairy tale. Everything was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined in my best dreams. I actually stood there and cried tears of joy. Thankfully, I had not had my make-up done yet for the wedding!
During the the reception, countless people complimented the food and the decorations. Many people that night told me that it was one of the best weddings that they had ever been to, and I have to agree! My husband and I are still talking about it....especially the food. I greatly recommend the pork loin!
If you are planning a wedding, I highly recommend Jerri Patterson and her team at Table Decor & More! You will be impressed.
poor photography included.
It has taking me awhile to write this review because I wanted to just let it go. I chose this company for the all inclusive deal. I thought this answered all my money problems. All though my Wedding day was great and her mistakes wont change that, I still have a few reminders of my frustrations. Photography...I was told when I booked that photography was her favorite and she did so much exciting things with the wedding. After looking at her website, I felt assured that the I could trust her with (the most important thing) the pictures. Unfortunately, this is why I was dissapointed, The Photographer was completely unprofessional. She was rude to my bridal party and family. My Maid of Honor had to help direct shots because the photographer was giving no direction. Yes we were late to our appointment but we, had major mishaps that could not be avoided. Basically, I have no Pictures with my Inlaws with my husband, Barely any pictures of the groomsman, No pictures of me with my husband and my immediate family. The Lady exchanged words with my Bridesmaid and caused a scene. The only pictures I have of the ceremony are from my aunt. By the way any family members taking pictures were yelled at like little kids. They kept getting in trouble for taking pictures. The lady sat on a chair during half the reception and did nothing until we directed her to take more pics. She then later approached me and asked if she could leave. I felt on the spot and overwhelmed by everything going on and told her yes. I felt like she wasnt working anyway. And once again she was rude to my family. She kept saying to everyone that you take more pictures then I have ever seen before. Well thank God! Because I now realized I wouldnt of had the pictures of the ceremony that I do now thanks to my Aunt. She also was not dressed professionally.
I called Jerri days after with my concerns and she said they got lots of pictures and for my troubles she would comp the discs with all photos. So thats where I decided to just move on. I recieved the discs and there were alot of pictures because alot were duplicates.
Now on to the picture part.... The pictures were so generic I could of just had a friend follow me with a camera. I have the discs and can show them to anyone that wants to view them.
Moral of the story is you get what you pay for. In Jerri's defense the decor was what I wanted and looked great. But she did try to add on extra charges everytime I turned around. Like a linen for dj table. An extra charge for a table for the groom and I . This was all discussed at our first meeting. I didnt throw curveballs.
I also had an issue with a table being moved. One table was up against a wall with little view. My Mother asked her repeatedly to move it to opposite wall and she refused, I was promised service for my wedding party while we were waiting to be announced and that didnt happen. Everytime I asked for a drink for a wedding party member I was told they were an alcoholic and were forbidden from serving drinks. Finally A groomsman got drinks for the wedding party.
I just want to give people a heads up before you hire a vendor without proper research. Till this day everytime I look at my wedding photos Im disgusted,
I know Im late in the game about posting. I just thought I have seen alot of negative comments on here and now mysteriously deleted. All of a sudden she has all these positive reviews. I will not keep posting if she deletes this. I have already put my word out there. I have already had 6+ friends get married and they all steered away from this company . I have a few more friends planning now who will use the same venue but know not to request this company.
I am the owner of Table Decor & agree that we had a bad experience with the photographer I had hired. It was a VERY hot day, so the bridal party was dying in the heat. The photographer did ask the Maid of Honor to help her gather everyone to get photos done faster. I gave this bride the CD disc with all photos on it for free. I fired this photographer.As for any fabrication of reviews, that is totally bogus. I am happy to give any prospective brides the names and phone numbers of my brides.
