Hmmm…what are your colors? could you do some of the twisty twiggy things(in the natural color, or paint them), and add your table number? Honestly, depending how rustic, I’d go sunflowers, or wildflowers that are natural to the area. B/c then, you know they’re already used to the climate.

again, depending on your colors, you could actually do fake wheat grassm with a table number, and tie a ribbon in your color around the yarn/twine detail that’s already around the container?

Perhaps lavender? You could go to a garden store and pick up numerous pots, they are pretty and they smell divine!

it would take a while, but if you’re thinking “rustic” it would be cute to make some burlap flowers and mix them in with real ones.

just cut out some flower shapes (the type you would doodle) and use hot glue to attach them to the ends of kebab skewers. glue a button in the middle of each flower for the center part, and voila!

these would look cute with lavender, and the skewer stems wouldnt show amongst the real flowers and stems. trim with scissors if they are too long

For a rustic theme I think some colorful wildflowers and lavender would look great with those! 

Also, have you thought about using mason jars? I think they go great with a rustic theme!

@babylo0n: Ok, now when I know the colours – I would strip the vase of the twine, then paint them white (if you want it rustic you can then sand the edges so that the brown comes through). I would then wrap the centre area first with burlap, then a thinner band of lace, and finally wrap it with a small pink ribbon tied into a bow. Then I would plant pink lavender in the vase and add branches of baby’s breath to make it more romantic.

@babylo0n:  For your ivory you could maybe do babys breath which isn’t too expensive and should do well in heat….possibly mixing some pink roses in with it as well

@weddingbound: So funny, I posted the comment above and then you provided an image almost exactly the way I had pictured it! 🙂 Minus the lavender.

I would leave your wooden containers as is. Not every rustic wedding needs butrlap and lace, nor do they all need white shabby chic vases.

I remember your post about hydrangeas. I gather you have decided you don’t want to risk using them in the heat.

One flower that handles heat well is lisianthus.

I would mix the lisianthus with herbs such as rosemary and add dusty miller or lamb’s ear.

You can buy square plastic inserts for your wooden box at floral supply stores, ot you could simply make the arrangement in a smaller vase and pop it into the box.

Not sure how big your boxes are, but could you use a living hydrangea, like what you buy at a florist (put the container into your box).  Maybe these would wilt too if they are in the sun for many hours.  Maybe a florist azalea?
