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.

How To Create This Rustic Table Plan At Your Wedding

Designing the perfect look for your rustic wedding takes more than finding the perfect wedding venue. Whether you’ve opted for a country barn or an English garden-inspired venue, it’s the decor that creates your rustic theme. Today we’re talking about a rustic table plan that will seriously set the scene for your special day…

One of the things we love most about rustic weddings is the fact it’s such an effortless yet beautiful theme. It’s perfect for those couples who want an organic, country feel to their day. It’s the little details that count, which is why this rustic plan table is made for a rustic affair!

What You’ll Need For Your Rustic Table Plan

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.
