DIY Wednesday: A Rustic + Organic Table Design
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

I hope you enjoyed checking out our creative collaboration yesterday… as we were pulling the pieces together, I thought it would be fun to document a little DIY project for making your very own rustic and organic tabletop… for wedding, party, or home!Step One. Decide on a foundation for the table:  the linens.  We used a woven, multi-colored runner that set the tone for the palette.  Warm, desert colors were our inspiration. Step Two. Gather florals, greenery, and in-season, accent fruits.  We used things like myrtle, seeded eucalyptus, two-toned roses, pears, richly-hued tangerines, and kumquats!  We also collected vases, simple white measuring cups, and a small porcelain cake stand to add to the mix. Step Three.  Arrange the flowers and greenery in vases.  Find ways to combine the organic elements with dishes and stands.Step Four.  Arrange vases and décor elements in a cluster at the center of the table, or down the center of a long table.  Try a few different set ups to determine which one you like best.

Step Five.  Embellish with extra greenery.
