Well, so far I’m hitting a new post every 6 weeks…Yikes. I will be trying to improve my deplorable record in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned…..
As I previously mentioned, my son got married at the end of September at our cottage, it was a beautiful day, sunny and a little cool, perfect when you are doing plenty of eating and drinking ;-).
This wedding was a labour of love and we had many personal touches to make the day extra special for the newlyweds. My new son-in-law shares of love of all things decor and DIY with me, so we kind of went to town on wedding DIY decor.
The rustic and warm table settings got many oohs and aah so I thought I’d share them here with you. Justin, had a very specific vision for them and I just gave him a hand implementing his ideas. I think they turned out beautifully.
They had decided on terrariums for the centrepieces, together with some vintage silver vessels filled with tiny baby succulents.
Aren’t they adorable? We managed to get most of them done with lots of family help, on the long weekend in September. The large terrariums were given to the wedding party as a thank you for being part of this special day and we hope they live a very long life in their new homes.
I think the first thing that was decided upon, was to use burlap runners (hard to see in the following pics). I found ready made ones online but they were a little short for our long wood tables, so I just sewed two together to make it work for us.
The table numbers were printed up on paper that looked like chalkboards and we just inserted them into these budget friendly white frames. The name tags were also printed professionally and placed in “previously loved” wood branch place card holders.
The caterers provided the gorgeous wood boards, and votives and we think that the terrariums looked absolutely spectacular on them.
Together with some beautifully simple white platters and dishes, that pop…. and…VOILA!
You have a simple, rustic yet so interesting and warm wedding table setting.
