Using old wooden planks as alternative rustic table runners to create a warm and welcoming wedding reception
I think that how you lay out you wedding tables for your meal is so important – it’s possibly one of the longest periods of time that your guests will spend together in one spot during your wedding day, so making them warm and welcoming I think is vital.
I wanted to share this image with you because it’s a lovely alternative to fabric table runners, and especially for everyone out there who wants a rustic feel to their wedding. And I don’t think that by rustic it means it can’t be elegant and chic, like this image shows – if you pair an old wooden plant with simple white tablecloth and unfussy floral arrangements it can be incredibly sophisticated.
Tea towel place settings as an alternative to table runners for round tables at your wedding reception
Firstly I want to apologise for the lack of more blog posts in recent days – I am snowed under getting ready for my March birthday celebration month, so not wanting to spontaneously combust I’ve reduce the blog posts to daily rather than twice daily just until I get prepared!
I seem to be going down a bit of wedding table theme at the moment – if you haven’t seen my recent blog post on dinner party style wedding table layouts do have a look for some inspiration. Whenever I’m scouring the internet to find ideas to share with you, the ones I usually save are the ones that just grab me.
This image above was one of those. If you are going for round tables it is often more difficult to have a table runner and sometimes they are so huge they don’t feel very intimate for your guests.
For me, this is a wonderful example of how round tables can work – seating just six it is much more cosy than a giant table of ten, and folded tea towels (I say tea towels because they look very similar to ones we have at home bought from Ikea, but you could use any fabric to create the same effect) to set out each persons place.
Gorgeous inspiration and ideas for a pretty autumnal woodland wedding. Tartan table runners, pewter pots of fir and berries, tree trunk stands and tiny deer name card holders. What a delight!
