How To Create A Rustic Wedding Dessert Table

A wedding cake table backdrop is guaranteed to look gorgeous and it’s an easy way of adding the wow factor to your wedding venue. A hessian or burlap backdrop will look wonderful behind your dessert table. However, you could also use some rustic brown paper as a backdrop. If you’re providing your guests with various yummy treats, we love the thought of writing the menu selection on the paper.

Wooden pallets would also make a unique backdrop your dessert or cake table, and they’re the perfect way to add a rustic touch to your decor. If you wanted to add a pop of colour, simply tie some ribbons or pretty balloons to the pallets. Blooms and foliage are also the perfect match for wooden backdrops.

Make a statement with a rustic wedding dessert table by using a combination of wooden crates and ladders. You can decorate the ladders with greenery, lanterns or vases full of flowers. If you are using wooden crates as part of your rustic wedding dessert table, we suggest using them as part of your centrepieces too. You could also use them to hold your confetti cones or wedding programs. This will keep your wedding decor looking coordinated.

15 Creative Wedding Cake Table Backdrops

We thought we’d start by incorporating one of the most anticipated wedding trends of 2017 – greenery. Wreaths adorned with wild greenery and foliage look striking hung behind your wedding cake. They’re also a wonderful choice if you love the thought of a botanical wedding theme. A job for your wedding florist, they can be hung from a wooden frame.

If you adore the thought of using greenery as part of your table backdrop, but want something a little more romantic, consider creating a cute heart-shaped garland instead. This will look super sweet behind your cake or dessert table, particularly if you’re planning a Valentine’s Day wedding. You could also create mini versions for your chair covers or favours.

An Olive Green and Grey Wedding Colour Scheme

Today is all about an olive green and chic grey wedding colour scheme. This heavenly duo is perfect for that in-between season time, when it’s no longer Winter but not yet Spring. Teamed with lots of country-style wooden details this is the perfect ‘botanical meets rustic’ wedding theme.

olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas

An Olive Green and Grey Wedding Colour Scheme

Kick-start your wedding planning off by deciding on your wedding stationery designs. We suggest keeping the same (or a similar) design throughout your day – from the save the dates to the table plan! This almost creates a ‘brand’ for your wedding day, and it’ll reflect your wedding style as a couple. White and grey stationery with olive green envelopes will start your wedding off wonderfully.

I am a huge fan of watercolour grey wedding gowns and they’re perfect for a modern, fashion-forward bride. They’re delicate and beautiful, yet despite the colour they’re still incredibly bridal. Team with silver wedding accessories and jewellery for a truly striking look. A slate grey suit is an obvious option for this modern colour scheme, but navy shouldn’t be overlooked. Both grey and navy look handsome paired with olive green, so the choice is completely down to the groom’s individual style.

Grey bridesmaid dresses are always going to look elegant on your ladies. Olive green gowns will look gorgeous on the right girl, but they may not suit everyone in your group! It’s best to try both colours on but make sure your bridesmaids feel 100% comfortable – if they don’t feel confident, it will show in the wedding photographs.

I think this theme is particularly perfect for an outdoor wedding venue, and it’s best to incorporate a lot of nature elements into your decorations and the smaller details. Add sprigs of olive leaves to your place settings or even tie them around dark grey napkins. Wooden chairs and tables will add to the rustic feel of your big day, and they will add an Italian touch to your venue. Enhance this by using wooden tree slices as part of your table centrepieces and fill wooden crates with your favourite flowers. Wooden frames hanging from trees outside will create a fun space for photograph opportunities – you could use some DIY skills and create homemade photo props too. This could be a fun job for you and your bridesmaids to do!

Style your reception tables with grey linen table runners and cloths. Use lots of grey linen ribbon throughout the little details too: tie around your wedding chairs or even your wedding bouquet. Olive scented candles will give your reception a lovely fragrance and how about olive scented soap for your wedding favours. Why not have an olive-flavoured wedding cake too? This unusual flavour is actually delicious, and you can guarantee your guests won’t have had it before…

An olive green and grey wedding colour palette is understated, chic and modern – with a few rustic details thrown in!

You’ll need a glittering copper, gold or bronze table cloth to use as the base for your rustic glamour wedding table.

Dried Carpet Moss For Weddings

This week our wedding decoration of the week is perfect for rustic woodland wedding styling. Our boxes of dried carpet moss for weddings are fab for adding that rustic touch to your table and venue styling.

Moss can be used to add a woodland touch to wooden tree slices, place small pieces of moss over your wooden slices in between vases and tea light holders. For long tables lay a carpet of moss down the length of the table which can look lovely with roses and other blooms laid over it with a mix of candle holders. If doing your own flowers and using one of our wooden crate centrepieces add moss as a lining so it pokes through the gaps in the wood for a more rustic look. Use moss to create your own woodland initials, or a rustic wreath.
