This is the closest I've found to the tablescape I have imagined. Instead of driftwood, place slabs of wood throughout the table, also creating elevation. The flowers would still be randomly placed, and a couple lanterns as well as a bajillion candles everywhere. BINGO.
Turn old sheets, scrap fabric, or clearance material into a pretty shabby chic fringe garland. Beautiful when strung up at a wedding, bridal shower, tea party, around the house... essentially anywhere and everywhere!
