Party with a rustic/natural flare!

I am SO a rustic/natural girl, but not in the flannel in the woods chopping down trees or skip shaving kind of way... more like a/c cabin with hot tub heehee....

here are some ways to add some rustic and/or natural frosted touches to your next party!

How about this fantastic idea?!? A cupcake bar! Use rustic elements like this weathered looking steel serving platter.  Add some mason jars full of different frosting and toppings, a chalkboard and you have a fantastic party element! Source

Set up a s'more's bar with natural elements that fit the season - here pinecones make the perfect buffet card holders! I love how they make the signs look weathered - excellent detail! These would look great served on planks of wood or slate too! Source

For the perfect nature element use terracotta plates and pots for serving! Looks beautiful, it's functional after the party and so inexpensive!  Think of other outdoor materials you could use like brick and stone! Source unknown :o(

Another use for pots is for utensil holders! How simple, but fantastic do these look? Use white paint pen to label, or just leave plain! Source

Use slices of tree branches as coasters, candle holders or serving elements! Wrap leaves from the yard around candles or vases - tie off with twine for a great rustic natural vibe for little to no cost! Source


  1. I love the cupcake stand..I've been on the look-out for one like that. I hope you're putting this post in your 'wedding' file - these ideas would make for a gorgeous day!

  2. The cupcake stand is from PB.. WAY overpriced 70!! But I agree totally cute!

  3. Hi! This was a fun and happy surprise to see. :) I am the little unknown source for the S'more buffet tags. Here is the link to that post:

    I'm with you...RUSTIC is one of my all time favorite ways to decorate!

  4. Love, love, love the chalk on the plant containers. Very rustic chic.

  5. I love the leaves wrapped around the candle holders. That would be especially pretty with fall leaves in all different colors. Thanks for sharing! :)

  6. I want to have a cupcake fun would that be! hmmm... would be super fun for a birthday party, maybe my own???

  7. I do love this rustic look... the weather signs are gorgeous!But I am with you... I am not really the outdoorsy type... but lately I have been going white water rafting and I do love it! So who knows??!!

  8. Wow - love these ideas! Especially the use of the flower pots.
