DIY Jute Glass Bottle Vase

Do It Yourself: Jute Glass Bottle Vase

Transform a glass soda bottle into a stunning rustic Jute Vase.  Create a positive impact on the earth by using recycled glass bottles and the biodegradable jute to create stylish decor for your next wedding or event.  Not only will these DIY Jute Glass Bottle Vases leave a small footprint on the earth, they will also leave an even smaller dent in your wallet.

DIY Jute Glass Bottle Vase

Materials

Steps

1. Gather at least 30 feet (30ft) of jute string.
2. Using a hot glue gun, glue one end of the jute string to the bottom edge of the bottle.
3. Place a line of glue around the bottom edge of the bottle and snugly place jute over the glue.
4. Begin tightly wrapping the bottle with jute and apply a small line of glue about every two inches (2″) to secure jute in place.
5. Wrap jute to the top rim of the bottle and glue the end in place.
6. Place a freshly cut flower or small arrangement into the opening of the vase and now you have a unique, eco-friendly jute vase!

Helpful Tips

  • The coils of jute may want to ride up the bottle. Place a line of glue around the entire bottle in those areas to ensure that the jute will securely stay in place.
  • While adding each coil of jute pull tightly and push down to be sure that the bottle is completely covered.
  • If your string runs short there is no need to worry. Easily glue another strand of jute string where the last piece has ended and continue wrapping, the strands will blend in together.
  • Collect used glass bottles from friends and family. Wrap three bottles with different sizes and shapes and combine to create a beautiful centerpiece.
  • Pair your upcycled jute bottle with our wooden table numbers, a burlap wrapped glass votive and burlap table runner to create a stunning rustic tablescape.

Beach Wedding Ideas

Happy Friday everyone!  After a long week, we’re ready to hit the beach this weekend…which got us naturally thinking about all the beach weddings coming up this summer.  If sandy, sunny nuptials sound like a tropical dream, we’ve put together a few must-haves that let you celebrate in style!

Let’s tackle centerpieces first. Beach weddings can range from chic and casual to refined elegance.  Whatever your style, use your natural surroundings as your decor manual. Simple touches like natural sugar starfish (also work great for invitations and place card holders), tabletop tiki torches, or even natural driftwood branches used as table decorations play up on the beachy vibe.  Charger plates add a pop of color and texture to your table scape in pretty beach colors such as aqua blue charger plates, ocean blue charger plates. Or embrace beach chic style with rattan chargers in brick brown, honey brown, or sand brown.

With a carefree and relaxed vibe, beach weddings often leave guests with a feeling of not wanting to return home to the “real world” right away.  Therefore, give your guests mementos that will remind them of their seaside vacation.  Candies in starfish burlap favor bags or personalized favor bags, personalized tote bags, and key chain favors such as starfish chains, mini flip flops are always favorites.

Finally, event decorations can really tie your whole celebration together.  Play off the natural beauty of the sea and sand, and palm trees and tropical flowers.  You can choose big decor pieces for maximum impact such as seashell driftwood garlands,  driftwood garlands, tiered chandeliers in blue capiz shell, parasols, and personalized photo backdrops.

In end, a little creativity and inspiration will go a long way to creating the beach wedding of your dreams! Check out our Pinterest board for more ideas!

HOT TREND ALERT! DECOR FAVORITES FOR YOUR NEXT SUMMER BASH

Today, we continue our look at favorite must-haves for your next summer bash.  With summer just around the corner these days, it’s never too early to start planning.  Our picks below are versatile and vibrant – perfect for those hot summer days and cool summer nights – but also easily adaptable to any celebration year-round.  BBQs, beach weddings, and graduation parties…the season is about to begin!

1.  Fans – A variety of colors and textures such as sandalwood, raffia fans, or folding paper fans are a perfect complement to a sunny outdoor wedding or garden party.  We love that they can also double as take-home favors too!

2.  Apothecary Jars – Known for their aesthetic appeal, apothecary jars are a stylish addition to any party.  Cluster a few jars in various shapes and sizes for a whimsical centerpiece.  Alternate each centerpiece by alternately filling the jars with candy, cookies, or even spices, thereby leaving each table with a distinctive look.  And of course – if you are planning a candy bar, then these jars practically required!

3.  Burlap – We’ve seen burlap as a mainstay decor fabric used in many weddings and other events.  However, now in addition to traditional burlap table covers, burlap runners, and burlap ribbon, burlap is also available in countless other forms as well! Elegant chair sashes, trendy tote bags, and go-to favor bags (including imprinted burlap favor bags) are great ways to add a subtle touch of vintage charm.  Burlap perfectly complements the bright hues of summer so don’t be afraid to showcase this on-trend fabric.

4.  Submersible Floralytes – vibrant and color changing, submersible floralytes are must-have for nighttime summer event!  They provide the ample illumination to centerpieces such as floral arrangements and ice sculptures and also work as a replacement for candle votives.  Ideal for an outdoor wedding reception under the stars!

Rehearsal Dinner 101

It’s a part of your big weekend, but can often times get overlooked during the planning process. However, a rehearsal dinner can set the tone for the entire weekend so be sure to spend some time and effort into putting together an event that is at once entertaining yet laid back and infused with personal touches that represent you as a couple about to embark on a lifelong journey together.

When planning, the first question to ask yourself is – what kind of ambience do you want to set for the occasion? A rehearsal dinner does not necessarily have to be tied into the the theme or decor of the actual wedding itself – so get creative!  Whether your wedding is in the style of traditionally classic or modernly chic, a rehearsal dinner featuring your favorite Southern BBQ, a Moroccan theme, or even an island luau would not be out of place. Most likely, the rehearsal dinner is the occasion when friends and family of the bride and groom meet for the first time. Hence the goal is to keep things fun, a bit casual, but nonetheless organized.

When it comes to decor, we like the idea of keeping things fun, simple, and recyclable!  Keep things budget-friendly by using pieces that can be re-used again at your wedding ceremony or reception (maybe even both!).  A few of our favorite decor ideas for table centerpieces: clusters of colorful votives or frames filled with pictures of you with your fiancé, the parents, the grandparents, or any other close loved ones.  Or perhaps a scattering rose petals across white linens for a vibrant look. Consider saving money on your florals by opting for silk flowers (this especially works well if your wedding is taking place during the off-season months when florals are harder to come by).  A popular trend we are seeing these days is the use of succulents – a great idea if you are already going big with florals at your wedding and you want to change up the theme for the rehearsal dinner.

However you decide to celebrate your wedding rehearsal dinner – remember this is a joyous occasion where you and your fiancé  can share an intimate, fun-filled evening with close loved ones before the big day. Eat, drink, and be merry…..and don’t forget to put on your best party dress!
