Bride and Bloom – Simply Elegant

Elizabeth MessinaA few months ago, my friend Janie at The Brides Cafe asked me to help design a table for the current issue Bride and Bloom Magazine, which was photographed by Elizabeth Messina at Veritas Vineyards. We wanted the table to feel rustic but sophisticated, and I think this concept is a testament to the versatility of burlap (one of my favorite materials). I love how burlap gives you a good neutral background.
