Vintage glass bottles in a mismatch of sizes and colours work as beautiful DIY vases for wedding table decorations. Simply add a single stem flower into the bottle and display at your wedding reception.

Vintage bottles can look effective running along your top table, use the colours of flowers and bottles to tie in with your wedding colour scheme. If you have anywhere around your venue or outdoor space which will allow you to hang bottles, they make fab hanging decorations. Simple yet effective!

For your guest tables cluster a group of vintage glass bottles together, either run them along the table if you’re opting for long tables or make a group in the centre if you’re having round tables.

Use a variety of different sized and coloured glass bottles, or keep them all matching, it’s up to you.

DIY Vintage Escort Cards

If you’re looking for a unique way to display your escort cards or want something totally different to a traditional table plan then this might take your fancy. Cluster a number of bottles together on a table, fill with single stem flowers and tie a vintage brown paper luggage tag around the neck of the bottle with the guests name and table number written on it. Guests can collect their bottle and find out where they are sitting, the vases can double up as wedding favours as well.

If you are thinking of grouping a number of bottles together for your table centre pieces try tying the bottles with twine, vintage lace or ribbon in the colour of your bridesmaid dresses.

Vases/Bottles are a great way to add a little bit of extra decoration to your dessert tables or drinks stations, position them next to your candy jars and fill with bright blooms or subtle coloured roses for a more subdued vintage style candy buffet.

If you have any window sills or mantle pieces at your wedding reception venue then line up your bottles in a row or intersperse with candles for a romantic evening glow.

WINTER WOODLAND WEDDING STYLING

For winter woodland centrepieces, wooden crates or reclaimed wooden boxes can work well. Stick to soft grey and green tones for the florals with a highlight of white. Here we have used white ranunculus and wax flower with grey dusty miller, brunia, fir cones and spruce. Natural looking place card holders made from tree branches and for the favours boxes cream boxes with a decoration of spruce and brunia to the lid.

If you are lucky enough to have wooden tables at your wedding venue a light muslin table runner can look lovely laid down the centre of the table. Lay moss, cinnamon and pine cones over the table for a woodland winter look. Tiny white bud vases can be dotted around the main centrepiece for extra florals and our chalky glass tea light holders tie in with this look too, on the table brown card table numbers work well with this look to show guests which table is which. rustic winter woodland wedding table decorations

As an alternative table number you could use wooden disc table numbers. For each guests’ place setting, plates could be laid on a wooden tree slice as a place mat, this will look stunning on the tables are really create a woodland feel. Favours could be mini bottles of slow gin or something sweet in a hessian favour bag. rustic winter woodland wedding table decorations

How To Make Bark Tea Light Holders And Vases

Are you planning a rustic woodland wedding? This post shows you how to make bark tea light holders and vases which would be perfect decorations for a rustic woodland wedding. You can of course buy pre-made bark tea light holders and bark vases but it is often more budget friendly (and fun!) to make them yourself. You can add your own finishing touches such as ribbon and twine and create vases in whatever size you want.

HOW TO MAKE BARK COVERED TEA LIGHT HOLDERS AND VASES

YOU WILL NEED

1. Take a sheet of birch bark and soak in warm water for about 25 minutes until soft. This will stop the bark from splitting as you bend it.

2. Cut your sheet of bark into strips, this will vary depending on the size of the jar you are covering.

3.  Wrap a strip around your jar. If one strip doesn’t wrap the whole way around you can use more strips to cover.

4. Using the twine, secure the bark around the jar and tie in a bow or leave as a knot for a more rustic look. You could use ribbon, bakers twine or lace instead of the twine depending on your wedding style.

5. Complete the look by adding a tea light or flowers to your tea light holder or vase.
