DIY: The Farm-Inspired Table Setting


Having a backyard or down-home wedding? Then look no further than this adorable table setting! We were inspired by old-fashioned details for this table featuring red, white, and a touch of yellow.

We started with a simple white rental cloth and then we frayed the edges on some red and white ticking for an easy DIY, no sew table runner! 

For the centerpieces, which double as favors, we filled tiny zinc pots with meadow flowers like daisies, coreopsis and snapdragon. They are small and easy to transport, so guests can take them home at the end of the event.

For the place settings, we used vintage tea towels with cross-stitched monograms. We mixed and matched sizes and styles. Tea towels are easy to find on Ebay or at thrift shops. But, if you can't find any, you can purchase similar re-striped towels at IKEA and add monograms to them.

The tarnished silverware was also found at a thrift store. We simply tied each set together with red yard and a Kraft paper tag for a colorful touch. We paired dark antique chairs with this table, but any dark wood chair from a rental company will do.
