Printable table numbers with a rustic and vintage flair that are perfect for weddings and other events. Plus all the details on simple decor for a Southern BBQ.
This past week I was asked by a good friend of mine to help decorate for a lunch event. I love entertaining and decorating…and I love my friend, so I was thrilled to do it. BBQ was on the menu, so I put together a simple table with Southern BBQ flair. It started with three different options that I thought would work really well for the smaller budget, space we had to work with, and the aesthetic we wanted. I loved them all, so it was a tough choice, but I’m so happy with how it turned out!
Southern BBQ Table Decor
I love red and royal blue check for BBQ decor, but for this event it needed to be more subtle and neutral. The space was a basement room with an industrial vibe and muted gray/green walls. Khaki, stone blue, and burlap were all great options for the space and the theme.
We were trying to stick with a smaller budget, but the good news is that some of my favorite things to decorate with are inexpensive!
Table Linen Options
1. White linens + Khaki buffalo check runners
2. White linens + Cornflower blue runners OR
Stone blue runners–this is the one I used! (they have a bunch of other colors, $7.99 each)
3. White linens, burlap runner, blue check napkins on plate
1. Mason jars
You can use pint or quart jars depending on the size of the tables, or mix and match! For this event I used wide mouth quart jars. You don’t have to buy new…this is the perfect way to use what you already have.
2. Baby’s breath (Gypsophila)
I order it from Wegman’s (a local grocery store) ahead of time, and pick it up day of, or the day before. They are $4 a bunch, and I could do 2 jars per bunch, depending on full I make them. Check your local grocers, farmers markets, or florists. It’s one my favorite go-to centerpieces, because it’s so inexpensive, and works with so many different themes.
This is a HUGE roll for such a low price! I keep jute on hand at all times, because I use it so much for everything. I like the thicker weight (3mm or 4mm), but you can certainly use a thinner weight if you like.
I like these compostable plates because I think they fit the BBQ theme so well! They’re also a great size, with plenty of room for all the fixins’.
Large white paper napkins were rolled up with forks, knives, spoons, and wet wipes inside—-and tied up with jute!
Printable Table Numbers
I saw some similar numbers awhile ago, and loved them. They were expensive to purchase, so I decided to make my own! Print them on to kraft cardstock for a rustic, vintage feel. I also debated using a vintage ink pad that gives the edges a more work look. I waited until arriving at the venue before deciding, and then I just ran out of time. But it works really well if that’s something you love.
These are perfect for weddings, but also any other event that uses mason jars as centerpieces. They make all the difference!
