How To Style A Milk Churn Wedding Table Centrepiece

A table centrepiece really sets the tone of your wedding reception, and helps your chosen theme tie in together. It adds personality and interest to your tables, and can be incredibly beautiful.

Fleur Couture styled this gorgeous table centrepiece using our milk churns, and it’s perfect for a rustic, country or Summer wedding. You’ll be able to see how the milk church table centrepiece can be styled with the place settings so that your tables look seriously gorgeous! This is an effortless style to recreate for your big day and it’s super easy too.

How To Create This Table Centrepiece

If opted for long tables rather than round tables, it’s best to place the milk churns down the length of the table. We recommend a table centrepiece every four place settings or so. However, you’ll be able to see what works best for your wedding venue.

Tree slices have become hugely popular as table centrepieces and it’s no wonder why. They add a subtle rustic touch to any table, without being too overwhelming. You can opt for a thin tree slice or something that’s a little thicker. Mix and match throughout your reception tables for a wonderfully natural style that looks effortless. Surround the large tree slice with tiny tree slices or something that you think fits in. The wooden holders in this styled shoot are tea branch tea light holders turned upside, but work perfectly for this purpose.

Fill your milk churn with flowers of your own choice, your florist will be able to guide you – blooms that tie into your bouquet will work beautifully if you are thinking of doing these yourself, they don’t have to be the exact same, as long as they all work together. Wild, meadow flowers look especially fab with this table centrepiece as it suits the natural, country garden style. Your florist will be able to help you out with the milk churn flower arrangements, but if you’ve not got a florist to hand friends and family can lend a hand.

Add a few sprigs of lavender or other greenery to the tree slice so that it doesn’t look too stark. You can really personalise this to your wedding day style – lavender looks great if it’s an element carried throughout your theme, for instance in the buttonholes and bouquet. A few jam jars with tea lights dotted around (and on the smaller tree slices) will complete the look, and means there will be a subtle glow for your guests. If you’re not a fan of jam jars, why not use mini glass bottles with gold rims with a sprig of greenery in?

Your place settings can easily fit in flawlessly with your table centrepiece. Napkins wrapped with brown string is perfect for a rustic look, and a sprig of lavender or foliage will add an elegant touch. This style is all about natural textures, such as wood and hessian so be sure to incorporate this into your tables.

This is such an easy table centrepiece to recreate for your special day, and it looks absolutely fab too.

How To Create Your Rustic Table Plan

This rustic table plan looks fab if you’ve got a variety of different size wooden crates. Fleur Couture placed the crates on the sides and layered them on top of one another as if to create shelving for the plant buckets and other props.

Place a couple of milk churns on top of the crates and fill with blooms for the ‘wow’ factor. Choosing flowers that match your wedding bouquet will look beautifully coordinated. Wild, natural flowers look particularly wonderful with this set-up as it simply adds another rustic element.

Use props such as a ‘LOVE’ light up sign to add a touch of ambience to your table plan. You could make it really personal by adding frames full of your favourite photographs and placing them in the shelving part of the crate. The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating the wooden crates!

Rest the wooden table plan from The Wedding of My Dreams against the crates and fill the mini silver buckets with more pretty posies. Once you’ve done this, all you need to do is the finishing touches. Tie the brown luggage tags to the silver buckets and write down the seating arrangements so it’s clear where your guests need to sit.

This is such a simple yet effect rustic table plan and it looks beautiful in any area of your venue. Set up in the corner of your reception room so guests can easily see where they’re seating. You could even place it on a table to make it more of a ‘focal point’ of your reception room. The mixture of the wooden crates and colourful flowers will really help to create that beautiful rustic feel to your wedding venue. Keep the style throughout your wedding day and use crates or milk churns filled with blooms as your table centrepieces.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE: HOW TO MAKE CANDLES IN JARS

how to guide - make your own candles in jam jars or kilner jars for wedding favours, gifts or save the dates - put together by @theweddingomd - buy everything you need from their online shop

What you will need

To make the candle:

  • Wax beads (try eBay)
  • Cotton wick and wick tabs (try eBay)
  • Saucepan
  • Wooden spoon
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Kilner Jar / Jam Jar
  • Wax colourant: wax crayons / chips / liquid form (optional)
  • Scent oil (optional)

To decorate your candles in jars:

how to guide - make your own candles in jam jars or kilner jars for wedding favours, gifts or save the dates - put together by @theweddingomd - buy everything you need from their online shop

If using a kilner jar for your candles remove the lid, put the inner part on one side as you will need it later to help with decorating your jar, the screw part of the lid can go back on your jar once the wax is inside

. how to guide - make your own candles in jam jars or kilner jars for wedding favours, gifts or save the dates - put together by @theweddingomd - buy everything you need from their online shop

Put a saucepan on the hob on a low heat, pour your wax beads into the saucepan. Make sure the heat is warm enough to melt the wax but it should never reach boiling point. Stir with a wooden spoon. how to guide - make your own candles in jam jars or kilner jars for wedding favours, gifts or save the dates - put together by @theweddingomd - buy everything you need from their online shop

Cut a length of wick and lower it into your melted wax so it has a light covering of wax. Let the wick dry in a straight line and poke one end through the wick tab. Place the wick tab on the bottom of your jar and wrap the top of the wick around a lollipop stick resting on the jar to keep it in place. You want to wick in the centre of your jar.

Let the wax cool slightly and pour into your jar. Letting the wax cool a little before pouring in avoids the top of the candle dipping in the centre once it sets. how to guide - make your own candles in jam jars or kilner jars for wedding favours, gifts or save the dates - put together by @theweddingomd - buy everything you need from their online shop

Once the wax has set you can remove the lollipop stick and cut the wick to length.

Now it’s time to decorate your candles in jars!

how to guide - make your own candles in jam jars or kilner jars for wedding favours, gifts or save the dates - put together by @theweddingomd - buy everything you need from their online shop

Option 1: Create a stamped message as your lid. Use a kilner jar for this one, trace a circle around the inner part of the lid on to card or paper. Cut out the circle and stamp your message in the centre. Place the paper or card inside the screw part of the lid and screw it in place. how to guide - make your own candles in jam jars or kilner jars for wedding favours, gifts or save the dates - put together by @theweddingomd - buy everything you need from their online shop

Option 2: Same method as option 1 but if you don’t want to stamp your message you could print it on the the card instead. Use a font you like for your message, you could personalise this with your names and wedding date or perhaps you have a wedding logo you would like to use here. Cut a circle around the printed design and place inside the screw top lid. how to guide - make your own candles in jam jars or kilner jars for wedding favours, gifts or save the dates - put together by @theweddingomd - buy everything you need from their online shop

Option 3. We like this idea for smaller jam jars. Cut a circle of hessian just larger than the lid, place it over the lid and tie on with twine for a rustic chic look. how to guide - make your own candles in jam jars or kilner jars for wedding favours, gifts or save the dates - put together by @theweddingomd - buy everything you need from their online shop

Option 4. This can be used on it’s own or with the other decorative ideas. Write a message or stamp onto a cute gift tag with scalloped edges and tie on with natural twine or bakers twine. The tags will be blank on the back so you can write your own message on the reverse, We like this idea if you are giving candles as your Save The Dates.
