Rustic Chic Decor Essentials

As earth day approaches, what better time to draw inspiration from mother earths brilliantly designed natural elements. Lets face it, nature is cool and so are natural products. Why not show your admiration for mother nature at your wedding and get in touch with your earthy side? We're not talking about getting married in a creek, while your guests all stand misserbly on the muddy banks mucking up their dress shoes. We're talking, more along the lines, of incorporating rustic chic design elements into your wedding decor. You'll see...

Being huge nature lovers ourselves, we fully support a theme that is, purposefully, a little rough around the edges. For a truly rustic chic decor,  pair rustic items such as various handmade wooden objects with natural chic items like pearls and feathers. Twine, leather and burlap become jaw-dropping textures when balanced with elegant decor elements.

Because of our roots in the Pacific Northwest we chose noble trees for today's inspiration.  Keep in mind, a rustic chic theme could take many forms. Get inspired by your natural surroundings!

If your thinking to yourself... I could make something like that cake stand. You can - and heres how!
