The following are some great ways you can embrace the romance and uniquity that wood conveys.
To me, the concept of writing on wood hits a romantic note, as it reminds me of the days when couples used to carve their love for one another inside a heart on a tree.

When escort cards are made of wood, they prove to be too pretty to slip into a purse. Instead, they are placed on the dinner table as an extension of the table decor. In addition, there's something so permanent about writing a guest's name on wood; it's like calling them a friend for life.

Wood rounds make perfect platforms for table decor, as they can be used in varying heights, sizes, and numbers. A handmade pinecone flower adds softness. Birch bark is very pliable and therefore a great medium for wrapping floral vases.
