Natural Beauty

Styling a dinner party should be fun and easy. Here are a few tips and ideas to creating a gorgeous rustic setting {with a little dose of pretty} that your guests will rave about.

Antique hyrdangeas
Green hypericum {berries}
Lambs ear
Mandevilla suaveolens {fragrant climber}

White & natural linen napkins
White or natural hand made paper
Vintage amber coloured jars
White or cream plates
Cutlery & wine glasses {to suit your menu}

Enjoy styling your next dinner party!

When choosing your flowers don't be afraid to mix it up a little. Buy a few different
varieties in different shapes and sizes, this will give you some added interest & texture.
Just remember to keep your colour tones similar.

Linen is a fantastic backdrop for a beautiful rustic setting whether it be a tablecloth, runner or 
napkins. To give the look a softer, prettier feel add a little lace. 

Don't you love turning up to a small dinner party where the host has made an effort to 
set the table with name cards.  We made ours using beautiful textured hand made paper and
the good old home printer.  I'm loving the succulent card holder. So simple!
