Chic Bistro Style

I am so excited to share this incredible table design by Carter & Cook Event Company!  This was initially created for a design challenge hosted by Utterly Engaged, and has a Modern Craft feel with neutral tones.  The details are simple and chic, and easy to recreate:
Small parchment-lined cardboard boxes were filled with a variety of cheeses and bread, along with custom labels attached to the beer bottles.
Brown craft paper is used for a runner on top of a linen table cloth.  More texture is added through the addition of a gauze ‘runner’ atop the craft paper.
The paper flowers made from old books are a great alternative to large voluminous flower arrangements.  And the menu cards are tucked into a small paper bag….so clever!
Of course, one can’t help but notice the fantastic table-front design…or should I say ‘art piece’?  Who knew cupcake liners could look so cool?!  The ladies just attached several sizes of liners onto the linen using push pins.  Some liners were spray painted tan to add interest.  The result is a beautifully textured look!

    I was at that event and got to see this table in person. It was perfection. So clever and well executed and the crafting was totally chic using items that you wouldn't usually classify as such. It was one of my faves from that event for sure!!!!
