I’m a big proponent of using natural elements in your wedding, and I’m also a big proponent of spending time near bodies of water. So why not take advantage of some of the greatest gifts from lakes, streams, and oceans. Driftwood is magnificently easy to find and always a rustic and elegant addition to any decor scheme.
The natural hues go with just about any preconceived color combination, allowing you to use it next to orange, green, black, pink, you name it! Put in on your table top or use it as a flower stand…If you are able to get your hands on bigger pieces, have it line the aisle. As in the top picture, painting it also gives it a new dimension to your decor, while not neglecting its natural beauty.The best part about driftwood is, although it is most easily found drifted up on a beach, it isn’t necessarily a beach theme. It can look great with a rustic lake ambiance, in a more backyard style eventSo next time you’re sitting on a dock or floating down a creek, get inspired by the wood floating along next to you – it just might be the perfect addition to your next event!
