Rustic Elegance

Here is a gorgeous wedding reception from Martha Stewart, that makes a very elegant statement with very natural materials. There are lots of ideas here that could be incorporated into any type of gathering.

A seperate kids table is covered with paper and pencils are provided so the kids can draw right on the table and be entertained.
How gorgeous is this dessert table offset with beautiful red candy apples!?
A fabulous place card/favor!?
I love this idea of personalizing a quilt for the happy couple! Supply squares of fabric that the guests can write well-wishes on, and then have it sewn together for a keepsake quilt. This would be perfect for a baby shower as well!
