The best part of styling a rustic Mediterranean table al fresco is that perfection literally flies out the window. It is actually the imperfections that create the mood and atmosphere and help impart a certain ease to the event. Another big advantage of going with the rustic theme is that it doesn’t have to be expensive! Here we collected used bottles from aperitifs and yoghurts as candle holders, and scoured vintage shops for fitting crockery and cutlery. Nature, our favorite source, has helped us out with the decorations, simple olive branches laid out on the table, and an used as minimal and natural plate decor. Use this as a starting point for your rustic table settings, but most importantly just look around you and see the elements that you already have on hand.
