Event Table Decor Ideas: How to Style Your Rustic Table in 5 Dazzling Ways

If you’re looking for event table decor ideas, we’ll show you some incredible ones to try with our rustic tables.

Rustic tables were a long standing feature in many homes in Kenya in the 70s, 80s, and even 90s.

In design, they were wooden dining tables, often styled with crochet table mats or full tablecloth.

From the 2000s onward, there was an influx of Chinese imports of shiny marble, glass, or rice husks tables.

But lately rustic tables have returned to reclaim their lost glory, maybe because you can also make them from reclaimed wood.

Besides homes and restaurants, they’re now popular at events too.

In this article, we share event table decor ideas to try with your rustic table.
