I am swooning over the way this table is decorated!
An old plank going down the center with some flower arrangements, lace wrapped votives and some nuts and sticks! Here's a close up of the flowers. I L-O-V-E lambs ear in arrangements - it is super soft and silvery green.
Some of the details for you too.
Ah, the feathers are fab too! Now I see this as a very cost effective tabletop. First off - old planks...find them for free. Second - old trophies and slightly tarnished silver vases - I would scour antique stores, flea markets and friends homes (just put a sticker on the bottom of who they belong too and make sure to return them). Third - buy in bulk votive holders and apply your own lace, either paper or real, with adhesive. And lastly - find a great florist or do them yourself! And this would work any time of the year - think beach with shells and votives with sand, spring with moss, summer with butterflies...
