It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of eucalyptus! This tablescape features a diy eucalyptus table runner and magnolia leaf place cards.
I always purchase my eucalyptus at Trader Joe’s. It is only $2.99 a bunch. My favorite thing about this table runner is when the leaves dry, it will still look beautiful! I have had this on my table for over a month now.
To make the table runner, begin by creating small bundles with the eucalyptus. Tie each bunch together using floral wire or fishing line. Continue until you have enough for the length of your table. I purchased 3 bouquets of eucalyptus. I also added in one bunch of magnolia leaves. My table is 6ft long. Once you finish creating small bundles, lay each bundle in the same direction and use the floral wire or fishing line to tie them all together to create one long garland.
I added in a few candles in between each leaves. When the candles are lit, it adds such a welcoming, elegant feel.
I love copper for fall/winter. To me, it is such a classy accent that is perfect for the holidays. For each place setting, I kept it simple with white plates and napkins, a copper mule mug, rose gold flatware and a magnolia leaf with each guest’s name. I used a rose gold marker to hand write each name.
Will you be creating your own eucalyptus table runner garland?
