One of my friends wanted some help with ideas on styling the table. I love bringing the outdoors in for the holidays and branches is something I used for an anniversary party too. I love the rustic look but I’m a glamdoll by nature so sparkly, glittery, metallic hues are a must. Gather branches from your yard or the park and spray paint them. Turkey day is all about family and I think those warm feelings we get calls for a warmer color scheme. So opt for browns, golds & bronze colors.
If you still have leaves on the bushes you can spray paint those as well. I like this look. Maybe a visit to the local Dollar Store will yield you some results. They always have a cheesy floral section. Spray paint those and place each stem in tiny vases. You can probably get some vases from Goodwills or thift stores for cheap. Don’t be afraid to use mismatched ones as varying heights adds visual interest. Besides, if you spray painted those, you will end up with a monochromatic look that’s sure to be impressive.
Feathers, dry foilage, branches will make for a nice centerpiece but put this on the food table because something so high will obstruct the view of guest. Nothing worse than not seeing who you’re talking to across the table.
How romantic to align yard with candles for a pretty backyard wedding ceremony, bridal shower or engagement party. It’s even beautiful for proposing fellas! You can get candles from Dollar Tree but it may be more affordable to buy in bulk
My apologies for saving these pix to my phone & not remembering where I found them. I try my best to source correctly. Anyhoo lighting plays a huge role in creating the perfect ambience for an intimate setting like a wedding. Not only that but it’s a cost efficient way to transform your space without spending a fortune (as you would for flowers). So here is some inspiration for you. Floating candles on a pool can make a backyard wedding feel more elegant…
Sporadically placed candleholders in the sand makes for a romantic beach sunset wedding…
I use to collect shot glasses whenever I visited a new city. Now I just collect postcards and magnets but for those of you with a shot glass collection try these two ideas: Place a flower in them. How incredibly beautiful are these Moroccan cups with blooms? Or place tea light candles (something I personally started doing when I got tired of buying tealight holders) in them. They now become double duty.
This year has gone fast for me and in a couple of days we will be celebrating the end of another year and welcoming new beginnings. Why not jazz up your space to kick off the festivities. Here are some fantabulous festive ideas from Hostess Blog.
This has such a winter wonderland feel to it but the color scheme can double for any other shindig like showers or mother’s day brunch.
