You guys, I’ve been waiting for this post for months. Literally, since October when we shot it. No joke. Because when we put all the pieces of our tutorials together, I kept jumping around everywhere squealing, “It looks so good! Oh my god, it looks so good! What the heck, that ombre table runner was so easy and I want to die over how good it looks. What. The. Heck. Why does everyone act like weddings have to be hard and expensive?” What can I say? I get exuberant when excited by cheap and easy crafts that I help make and that look fantastic. And I mean, it does look fantastic, right?

But the other best part (other than the clear gorgeousness) about this tablescape is that if you’ve already mastered the watercolor place cardsombre table runner and lush floral centerpiece tutorials from earlier, your work here is actually quite literally DONE. Unlike our previous tablescape, once you’ve created the elements for this table, you don’t even have to think anymore. (No arranging to worry about here! Simple! You don’t even have to watch what your wedding helpers are doing because they couldn’t possibly screw it up.)

We used standard rentals for this table, but this time we decided to elevate the style of this table over our simpler setup by using a slightly fancier place setting. Slightly. But that is 100% optional, because it’s not what is making this tablescape look so good anyway. You can swap out the extra forks and glasses and make this a perfect setup for your garden wedding, backyard shindig, or barnyard hoedown. You could even use nice recyclable plates and have it look amazing (and yes, we totally have a post on that coming up soon).

Once you’ve finished, your only responsibility is to admire your work and then go have a glass of champagne. Which luckily, since we set the table that way, is right in front of you.

(And get excited. Because next week we’ll have the outtakes from our How-To shoot. Which? Probably the best part of the whole series.)
