This is the closest I've found to the tablescape I have imagined. Instead of driftwood, place slabs of wood throughout the table, also creating elevation. The flowers would still be randomly placed, and a couple lanterns as well as a bajillion candles everywhere. BINGO.
DIY Heart leaf lanterns make beautiful luminaries and an easy gift idea that even kids can make. You can use real fall leaves or tissue paper. They are wonderful centerpieces for both indoor and outdoor use, and would be perfect for an autumn wedding. This nature craft can also be filled with treats and a candle and given as gifts for any special occasion!
