Palm leaves have been all the rage these last few years. They are a fantastic texture, inexpensive, the most perfect bright green color!
They look great on a table and in glass vases like the picture below.
Glass Vases – Palm Leaves
Did someone say polka dots? If you’ve been here for even five minutes, you know that polka-dots are MAJOR features in a lot of my crafts and parties.
For that reason, I think this polka dot table runner is perfection! This neutral themed runner is darling, but a colored polka dot would be just precious.
Succulent Plants – Kraft Paper Roll – White Acrylic Paint – White Circle Stencil – Sponge Brush
I love using Kraft Paper as centerpieces because it’s inexpensive and also looks so gorgeous and fun with cursive and calligraphy drawn on it.
This table is precious with the white candles and the fresh greenery!
I find adding fresh herbs to any party or tablescape adds such a fun and classy element to your table. Head to your local grocery store, wrap the delicious smelling sage around a candle and bam….you have such a gorgeous detail.
These apple tea lights just screams fall festival! Especially set on the rustic tree cake stands running down the table. I can only imagine what they smell like!
I’ve been saying babies breaths is overrated FOR YEARS! It’s inexpensive, go SOOO far and fills up fantastic space.
Placing them in old tin cans on paper doilies just brings out how sweet they are!
Here’s another fantastic, and inexpensive centerpiece idea! Especially if you live by the beach! You can grab different sized jars from a thrift store, grab sand from the beach or from the craft store and place carnations in them!
I typically am anti-carnation ‘hello funeral flower,’ but they totally work here! Getting rid of the stems works wonders and actually makes these centerpieces look more expensive.
