DIY Wedding

Decor Idea: A Forest Feast Reception

Many people picture large white tents and a crowded dance floor when they think of wedding receptions. However, if you decide that you want your post “I do” celebration to be more intimate, it’s fun to curate a beautiful theme for your guests. Keeping things small means that you can go all out and really invest in the extra details. When your guest list consists of a select few, you only need one or two tables to accommodate the entire party. You will be able to splurge on those rare violets from the florist, or an five course tasting from the caterer. We adore this idea for a rustic-inspired feast in the forest for those who are leaning more towards a quaint dinner party reception.  From the vibrant moss to the bountiful blooms, a customized picnic table among the trees will allow you to create fairy tale setting.


Pick invitations to reflect the heavy application of floral arrangements that will be present at the reception.

Terrariums are a beautiful DIY project to hang above the table to add to the rustic flair.


Try an alternative cake that’s light on the icing and plays up the “naked” trend to make it feel authentic.

Any DIY ideas incorporating tree branches are a must in a forest setting. We love the idea of incorporate twigs into the vases at your table arrangements or as a napkin ring at the place settings!
