There’s a very simple formula to getting gorgeous wedding table settings. Textures + Layers + Florals = Guaranteed Pretty. It’s all about the details and the more of them you pull together, the more jaw-dropping the big picture becomes. Today we’re putting the principle to practice with one core DIY supply, burlap wrap by the roll, pairing it with a range of textured elements to create napkin accents sure to take any table from simple to stunning.
