Winter Tablescape

A little late on the blog but we wanted to share with you the 
awesome photography of Beth Erisman as she inspired us to create a 
winter tablescape to show our rental pieces and floral design. 

Winter Mantle Design

Using pomegranates and dried orange slices in freshly cut greens 
gave a natural earthy feel to the mantle. Drying the orange slices is easy and makes your house smell wonderful! Be creative...what do you 
have outside to incorporate as you decorate your house?

custom made pillows by AshleyMorgan on Etsy were 
the perfect addition to our "sweetheart" bench 

A hot chocolate bar is the perfect addition for 
your guests at your winter wedding, shower, or party! 

our chippy white dresser "Amelia" is the perfect 
addition to a party, she adapts as cake table, dessert bar, 
hot chocolate bar... the options are endless. 

          Thanks for taking a moment to view our inspiration! 
        Lots of ideas coming from Burlap & Blooms, stay  tuned.

D.I.Y Covering old books.....

Here is a fun and EASY way to add a little something special to either a wedding, shower, or for your own house decor.  

Supplies Needed: Old books (thrift stores, yard sales, or from your own library) Wrapping paper, fabric, scissors, tape, twine (you can even use ribbon or decorative gimp). Always look around your house first before you go out and buy something for a project.

Step 1: Cut paper to the size of your book

Step 2: Fold in edges just like you are wrapping a present.

And ta-da! Its that easy. We would love to see our readers take on our DIY projects, so if you do please share on instagram using #burlapandbloomsdiy

Hope you enjoyed,
Ali and Ashley
