I wanted to share this beautiful tabletop from Brides.com because I love how it looks incredibly glamorous at first glance, but when you break it down, it’s really quite casual and easy to put together. Simply top the table cloth with a lace runner(you may have from your grandmother). Use a mixture of candle sticks, and vases down the middle of the table. These blue vases are something you would normally find on a side table or part of every day decor. They look so modern and fresh as part of the tablescape. Add some votives and roll towels for napkins, and you have a casual, yet chic table setting. Of course, loads of a single flower type always fill everything out perfectly.
