The Burlap Trend

There was a time when the humble fabric burlap would never have been considered being used at a wedding or special event. Times have changed considerably. This plain, brown fabric has turned into something more than ordinary. Burlap gets a makeover by combining it with other textures, colors, flowers, jeweled brooches, lace, and using it in unexpected ways. It is a fun material in its unexpected charm and complements many other materials nicely when given the opportunity.

We have seen burlap used in table décor, bridal bouquets, invitations, and other applications. The range can be from casual to more elegant in its use depending on the event as with other factors such as the time of day and the tone you want to set. Burlap is a wonderful neutral and can take on bold accents while holding its own.

A couple of samples of the many beautiful uses of burlap our clever designers have created for wedding related events...

Burlap is very versatile and if you have considered using it for a shower or bridal party or wedding you can see it has lots of potential.

  1. Wow, I love this trend! The decorations with flowers are my all-time favorite and I always use floral décor for my home. Even for special occasions I prefer buying original fresh flower from one of my favorite online Bloom Flowers shop.
