Rustic Oak Tree Wedding Inspiration

Is there anything more romantic than a wedding under an oak tree? It was easy to find inspiration in this symbol of strength and longevity for our latest mood board. Though a great match for a wedding anytime of year, an oak tree-themed event seems particularly appropriate for fall. We chose autumnal reds, browns and gold – a rich color palette that brings out the glamour of a rustic setting.

If you are planning a fall or winter vineyard wedding, here is some inspiration for your place settings! Deep colors such as burgundy, brown, off white and beige, coordinate really well with winter and fall seasons. At the same time, the oak tree motif is a unique natural  symbol of the new life you will start together. Pictured above, we have used our Oak Tree Menu Cardsin the color ginger and layered it with a dark brown cards. A deep wine color red table cloth and napkin contrasts beautifully with the neutral shades of the menu card and and a beige place mat underneath the plate, adds some extra dimension to the place setting.

 

Favor Idea: Nut Favors with Personalized Labels

Everyone loves nuts so why not send your guests home with some nut favors! Whether they are raw, roasted or spiced, nuts make a great gift that your guests can enjoy after your special day. Pictured below is a small jar, filled with almonds. To customize the favor, we have used our oak tree personalized labels. All our labels and tags are completely customizable and can be modified to include the contents of the favor, the names of the couple, the date of the event or a special note to your guests.

Leaf Place Card Holders Look Dainty but Hold up Heavy Signs

For outdoor weddings, our Leaf Shaped Place Card Holders are a beautiful addition to any table setting. They are available in a set of 8 which includes 2 each of 4 different leaf designs. These place card holders look detailed and dainty but they hold up table signs without a problem. Pictured below is our oak tree table sign held up by one leaf place card holder as well as two place card holders. While holding up the sign with two place card holders provides a sturdier stand for the sign, one place card holder works equally well.

Wine Bottle Cork Cage Place Card Holders Can Be Used as Table Sign Holders

Our mini wine bottle cork cage place card holders are a miniature version of our wine bottle cork cage which is designed to fit a standard wine bottle and store wine corks.  Sold in sets of 4, the place card holders include some blank place cards, however these also work really well in holding up a table number. We tested this product with several different signs and recommend using them for double or triple layered signs. Singly layer signs do not fit very snugly in the opening of this place card holder and given the larger size of the signs, tend to lean back too much. Place cards fit perfectly because of the shorter height. We offer a wide range of cork cage products and many of these make unique wine theme centerpieces that will coordinate well with these place card holders.

Cork Place Card Holders Make Great Table Sign Holders

We are often asked if some of our place card holders can be used to hold up table signs. The answer is yes! Most of our place card holders are heavy and sturdy enough to hold up signs. Our most popular place card holder, the cork place card holders is made of resin and is heavy enough to hold table signs and place cards. We have tested this product with 3 x 5, 4 x 6 and 5 x 5 signs and they are hold well. Larger items, such as 5 x 7 menus are too heavy for this place card holder though. Pictured below are our Oak Tree Table Signs and our Oak Tree Place Cards on the cork place card holders.
