1. Try Upcycling

Not only does upcycled décor provide you with a stunning rustic look, but it’s kind to the environment too. All of our garden furniture products are made from unused whisky barrels – browse online now.



2. Use Foliage and Wild Flowers

Wild flowers are a beautiful alternative for your wedding bouquet and for decorating your wedding venue. Foliage such as fern, willow and eucalyptus are also fantastic options for adding some greenery to your floral arrangements.


3. Make Your Own Bunting


Bunting is ever so charming, especially for barn weddings, farms and outdoor venues. For an eco-friendly option, make them yourself out of unused fabrics.


4. Buy / Hire Woodland Furniture




Our Woodland Furniture Set is a great seating option for kids (and big kids alike) – they certainly add a sense of fairy tale magic to any garden setting!



5. Use Natural Centre Pieces

Centre pieces made from wood, foliage, twigs, pinecones or other natural materials will bring life to your tables.



6. Dine by Candlelight

Candles are so romantic and they fit in well with the nature-inspired theme (woodland fairies don’t use electricity either).


7. Make Floral Headpieces


Flower crowns are the perfect woodland uniform for the bridal party and they will look great on bridesmaids and flower girls.


8. Opt for a Naked Wedding Cake

This is one of the biggest trends of the moment. Say goodbye to fancy frosting or ostentatious designs and leave your cake naked, with a humble dusting of icing sugar and some flowers from the garden.


9. Make Use Old Crates  



Unused wooden crates can get a new lease of life on your wedding day. Use them as storage, décor, a surface for drinks, paint them to create wedding signage, or turn one into a card post box for guests.


10. Serve Drinks in Jars or Tankards   




Upcycled jam jars, pickle jars and everyday food jars make superb drinking devices. Or for that traditional look, why not take a look at our Oak Cask Barrel Mugs? A fantastic treat for the top table!

 

Until next time,
