Theme of the Month - Rustic

Posted by

The weather may be cooling down, but the rustic theme is still hot, current, and always on trend!  We love the warm colours of neutral browns and pastel pink, teamed with classic white.  Here are some ways you can make your rustic dream wedding a success:

1. The Candy Table

Use various size candy jars and place them on different heights to make it look visually interesting.  You can use wooden crates, boxes wrapped in kraft paper or wooden cake stands to add height.  Don't limit yourself to just candy jars either!  You can use bowls and decorative boxes to hold your candy, too.

Lollipops look great standing up in a vase or jar, or simply lay them down on a platter.

We often get asked how much candy to allocate per guest - we would suggest 250g per person, or roughly 8 ounces.

2. Backdrop

Create that extra WOW factor with a gorgeous backdrop.  We are totally loving the clever use of lighting and inexpensive pom poms.


3.  It's all in the details

Don't forget about the small details that help bring your table together!  Hessian or twine wrapped flower jars, a cute message in a frame, decorated lolly scoops, personalised brown paper lolly bags and candy jar labels all add the special touch to make your table special.

Happy wedding planning! X
