Mason jars, Baby's Breath Flowers, a slab of tree bark, tea light candles, pine cones, and roses are all the ingredients you need for the perfect recipe for a romantically rustic centerpiece.

Having your reception outdoors reinforces the rustic trend. String lights and table runners made from fresh flowers and greenery complete this look.
