In order to keep up with the huge list of blogs I read I use Google Reader. All of the newest posts are delivered straight to my reader and it’s easy to keep track of them. I hesitated to start Google Reader, but now I love it, other than it’s harder to comment all the time now. I’ll often “star” my favorites for inspiration, tutorials or just useful information. As I went through my “starred items” the other day I began to notice a certain theme in some of the posts. Lately I’ve just been loving any sort of wooden detail. There is just this rustic charm to using wood slices, branches and signs throughout the wedding.
Here are some of the wooden details that have caught my attention lately.
It would be such a unique detail to use wood slice platters during your cocktail hour.
The details of this cake are so sweet with the carefully placed branches and birdies sitting atop a simple tree stump.
I love bird houses. I think their charm could make for the perfect escort card table display.
Never can get enough hand painted wooden signs leading the way.
I never would have guessed something as simple as branches with ribbon could be so endearing when carried by a child.
These escort cards are simply adorable. Even better? There is a DIY tutorial!
Even having wood in the accents of a venue adds so much personality to a wedding.
I would normally not say wood is appetizing, this cake looks scrumptious!
This picture is from one the design blogs I read. I could see this organic wooden table being perfect for the lounge at your wedding and then being reused as your coffee table at home.
And of course the wooden theme carries beautiful into paper, whether it be a background or graphics of trees or branches.
I thought this was an appropriate way to sum up my wood inspiration. Doesn’t Kathryn from Snippet and Ink always have something that just goes perfectly?

What sort of details have been standing out to you lately? Do you ever pick up on a certain theme after awhile?
Anyone know where to get some good wood slices from?
