I am looking for ideas on how to combine rustic and glamorous for the wedding reception tabelscapes. The reception will take place in a beautiful country setting barn venue and the colors will be royal blue and violet purple. I am not opposed to adding a third color possibly pink or other. I am attracted to many different looks. Tinted ball jars, tall glass cylinders, mercury glass, rhinestones, burlap, flowers, candles. I am just having a hard time envisioning and pulling these looks together. I would like to try to diy as much as possible and save some money here to be spent on other things. Any help and ideas would be appreciated.

kim.casstevens: I’m having a hard time envisioning rustic glamour too a bit because I don’t usually think of that as two themes that go together…the only way I can think to add some glamour to a rustic theme is by adding in gold accents to your colour scheme and candle light? Lovely fresh florals and perhaps some chandeliers in the barn too? White linens also adds class and glamour I think to an event.

Sometimes it is a task to combine so many elements. You can buy colored burlap for a different look. This one even has metallic flecks in it- burlap and bling!
you can use burlap webbing for napkin rings-add a rhinestone brooch
you could place mirrors end to end over top of the burlap runner to increase the light relection and sparkle from the candles.
