Beautiful Natural Tablescape by 33 Shades of Green

10 February 2011

.
Hello Remodelaholic readers!  Thank you Cassity for having me back again today.  You will find me at my blog, 33 Shades of Green, crafting, cooking, designing, and trying out all sorts of creative projects.
.
Today I am sharing a tablescape I recently put together.  Almost everything I used for this tablescape was something that I already had - there were only a few new things I purchased.  Don't you love when you come up with something new out of things you already had?  I first decided on a theme - green, silver, and natural elements, and then started pulling things together.


.
.
The first thing I started with was a burlap table runner.  I won this runner from the lovely Rene of Cottage and Vine - lucky me!  If you would like to make your own, take a look at Rene's tutorial.  Or, if you are lucky, she might have one for you in her Etsy shop.  I think burlap is just the perfect base for so many looks - it looks great with everything and was a perfect start for the natural elements I wanted to incorporate.
.
.
Glass hurricanes are a versatile accent piece to have on hand.  They are inexpensive, come in many sizes, and will work with any decor.  I use mine all the time for so many different things.  You can usually find these at Marshall's or TJ Maxx between $6 - $12.
.
.
.
To fill the vases, I used a bag of moss from the craft store, mini grapevine wreaths, and candles.  I soaked the grapevine wreaths in water overnight.  The next day I was able to pull them apart and shape them how I wanted to fit in the vases.
.
.
Decorating with succulent plants is easy and inexpensive.  Succulents are low maintenance and will be around long after you are finished with your tablescape.  I put these in little metal containers and filled the top with moss.
.
.
.
I really like how this tablescape would work in any season.
.
.
Adding votive candles around your centerpieces will add a little sparkle to your entire table.  Everyone likes a little candle light at a dinner party, right?
.
.
.
I hope you enjoyed this tablescape.  If you have any questions, come visit me at my blog 33 Shades of Green.

This is just so beautiful. Love all the different textures and the bright green moss is my favorite part.

Gorgeous tablescape! I ran across one of those glass hurricanes yesterday at a specialty shop that was 75% off. I should have grabbed it!
