Trend Alert: Hessian, Burlap & Linen Love

Hessian, burlap and linen are popping up all over the place at the moment and the best thing is they are really cost effective and give a great rustic look. Burlap and Twine offers some great products such as this "and they lived happily ever after sign" that could adorn your tables.


The great thing about burlap is that you can screen print directly on to it, so with some skill and imagination you could make all sorts of stunning designs. I particularly love these Paris inspired table runners from EAB Designs. Take a look at their Etsy store for lots of fantastic products including the cute Je t'aime lavender filled hearts.

How about this gorgeous lace and burlap bunting. You could easily DIY something similar using squares of burlap, lace doilies and twine and use it to decorate your venue.


I also think these little pew end as shown on Style Me Pretty are so pretty and even though they look super stylish they are really inexpensive as they just consist of a jam jar, wire, burlap, hessian and gypsophilia. It just goes to prove how you can do a Wedding on a budget and still make it really stylish.



This burlap and lace wrap is a fab way to dress water bottles for your tables and it looks amazing with the mercury votive, also from Style Me Pretty. So if you want a rustic theme, what are you waiting for?
