Tonya Coleman here from Soireé Event Design, and I’m back with the “Trend Alert” where I share with you some of the hottest trends in party planning! Today’s guest post is all about the hot new trend of RUSTIC GLAM!
One of the hot new trends right now in party decor is the rustic glam theme which is a mix of rustic elements like burlap and wood and glam elements like crystal and sequin. I was so excited when I was asked to design this “Rustic Glam” pink and gold dessert table and a matching dining table for Koyal Wholesale. They have a large selection of the perfect decor items to pull together this eclectic look – from rustic chandeliers and sparkly curtains to burlap linen and vintage cake stands. A one-stop shop! All you have to do is add the edible treats!
GLAM UP BURLAP WITH PINK SEQUIN RUNNERS & CRYSTAL CURTAINS!
A backdrop and table linens are so important in creating a look and feel for a themed table. To create this rustic glam look, I paired burlap table linens with pink sequin runners and tied a crystal garland around the edge of the table for added sparkle. The backdrop is made of a burlap table linen that I topped with pink crystal curtains. For added drama, I placed pink sequin runners vertically from the backdrop and the table to create a seamless cascading effect of sparkly pink sequin. I also attached burlap flowers to the curtains for visual interest.
MIX RUSTIC ELEMENTS WITH GLAM DECOR PIECES
This fabulous chandelier from Koyal embodies the rustic glam theme perfectly with it’s blend of rustic gold metal and sparkly crystals. Mixing in burlap and crystal items is key to pulling off this theme. I also used rustic wood slabs under the glam glass apothecary jars which were accented with burlap flowers.
USE A MIX OF VINTAGE AND MODERN CONTAINERS TO DISPLAY RUSTIC GLAM SWEETS
Using a mix of modern display containers with more vintage pieces creates an overall eclectic feel that really lets the desserts shine! These pink and gold candy apples from Roni’s Sugar Creations and sparkly cake pops, candy apples and chocolate covered oreos from Autumn Lynn’s Chocolate Sins are gorgeous displayed on these white vintage dessert stands from Koyal.
CREATE A WOW FACTOR CUPCAKE TOWER!
How fabulous is this acrylic cupcake tower topped with this gorgeous white paper flower pom from Peckled?! Displaying your cupcakes vertically maximizes your table space, allowing for more room for candy and other sweets. To give the cupcakes a rustic glam look, I simply wrapped plain white cupcakes in gold glitter cupcake wrappers from Dress My Cupcake and topped them with a rustic burlap flower.
RUSTIC GLAM GIFTS FOR THE BRIDESMAIDS!
No bridal shower is complete without the perfect bridesmaid gift — a bottle of wine wrapped in a burlap wine bag with a rhinestone brooch attached to the front that the girls can detach and wear. Display the gifts alongside the drinks table for added decor.
