DIY Wedding Wednesday: The Beach Style Tablescape

beach style tablescape

Destination weddings, especially of the beach variety, are a gorgeous thing. The colors, the natural props mother nature has to offer, the open air. There’s a long list of reasons why planning a getaway for your nuptials is a great idea. That said, not everyone can manage pulling off the very specific logistical requirements a destination event comes with. So when you can’t get to the beach we say, bring the beach to you! Start by picking your favorite seaside color combo, tap into design details that represent what you love most about the waterfront, and blend it all together into tablescapes worthy of any ocean blue backdrop. Need some inspiration to get you going? Here’s just a few ways of pulling off the look.

The Step by Step

Step 1: cut ribbons to a length of approximately 40-41″. Layer the personalized blue ribbon over the wide white ribbon and tie to your wooden stick, about 2″ from the top. Once looped and before securing, make sure to position your ribbons on both sides of the strand such that the wording faces up.

Step 2: cut gold twine to the same length as the ribbons and loop it through the front of a hole punched tag. Note: looping through the front of the tag versus the back will impact how your card sits. Lay the card behind the ribbons and secure the twine around the ribbons with a double knot. Once the tag and twine are secure, knot the ribbons around the twine, again making sure to position your ribbons on both sides of the strand such that the wording faces up.

DIY Wedding Wednesday: Pretty Paper Garland How-To

OK. So I think I can now officially say that I’ve got somewhat of a little obsession with paper. But not just any kind of paper. The kind that can be used to create little decorative details that instantly up the pretty factor on whatever they’re applied to. Couple that concept with scale, of the miniature kind, and I’m a happy girl! So when I was presented with the request to figure out a few ways to feature one of Weddingstar’s newest decorative trims, the mini white paper garland, I sprang to the challenge with glitter and spray paint in hand! Here are three of my favorite ways to put this petite paper trim to work.
