Copper Inspired Sweetheart Table

Category: Favorites | December 1st, 2017

I have to admit that I love a good celebration! This look was inspired by the warm tones in these wonderful copper lanterns. When Oriental Trading contacted me about creating a look I couldn’t wait to order. The items came very quickly and it was like Christmas opening so many boxes. My favorite project was finishing the look for the glass terrarium. I used Minwax in a classic gray to stain the base of the terrarium with two coats. After it was dry the washi tape was added around the middle to finish the look. It is a great way to hold advice or notes to the couple while they are at their sweetheart table. The boxwood garland was plenty long and I loved following the natural bend to know where to put the lanterns. To finish the look I weaved magnolia branches into  the front of the design. The large candle in the middle is a battery operated light so that the leaves inside would not burn. We hope you enjoy this wedding decor inspiration.
