We’d say a theme inspired by Mother Nature will not easily go out of style. Look for the right combination of greens, and pretty blooms, plus wood and gold elements, and you’ll have a picture-perfect design for your event.
If you’re planning + organizing an intimate (micro!) wedding (backyard!), engagement dinner, or a special get-together, let us help you create a dreamy, lush greenery wedding design and guide you through the table/decor set-up.

Let’s get started putting together this modern and stunning wedding idea!
Greenery Wedding Decor DIY Guide. Here’s how you can do it:
To start, we chose to use wooden furniture to keep with the natural feel mostly. If you’ve been around here, you know a few of our favorite table setting details are gold-rimmed chargers & glassware, as well as gold flatware.
IMPORTANT TIP: Always order one or two of each product first to see how they will work for you. Then from there, you can order in bulk.
These classic gold pieces will elevate any setting and set a great backdrop for your table decor. Having them handy will always give your event that extra “glam,” not too much, just enough to give out that regal feeling, even for this lush greenery design.
A banana leaf with a beautifully handwritten menu adds a unique and personal touch.
While custom-made roses were used as place cards, guests’ names and a short “thank you” note were written on the rose leaves. Lush greenery, right?
Wedding favors are Sugarfina candies placed in small clear boxes and placed on the table for guests to bring home.
We used lots of greeneries (salal, Italian Ruscus, Queen Anne’s lace) for the centerpieces; also added white roses, white dendro orchids, and white waxflower inserts. How about using vases of varying heights to create that movement?
You can also opt to go easy on using flowers and go for an all-lush greenery wedding design arrangement, especially if you’re working on a budget.
A white napkin cuts through the gold and the wooden elements, which creates a more balanced effect.
An intricate yet DIY, lush, greenery wedding design is achievable. You have to have a touch of inspiration, a dose of creativity, and the right items to pull it off.
If you’re looking to re-create this wonderful theme for your next celebration, we have rounded, easy creative tips that you can use to execute this seamlessly using our wedding design guide.
LINEN / WOODEN TABLE: Here’s a hack, use linen that has a wooden print. We’ve included a curtain that has a wooden finish. Just ensure to tuck in the part where the rod goes, and you should be good! NO ONE WILL KNOW! (unless you tell them!)
CENTERPIECES: You can use pre-made faux arrangements. Suppose you’re still opting for lush fresh greeneries, order bunches of greenery from your local flower shop. If you’d like to DIY it, you’ll need to stick to groupings. You can buy vases of varying heights and let the greeneries flow freely.
PRO TIP: You can also use acrylic risers! They are great for centerpieces and for reuse at home!
Another hack is that you can use potted plants (real or faux!), and you can use wooden or white boxes to raise them and have varying heights. Ensure to fill the boxes with paper so they will not be hollow (no one will know!)
If you are using silk or artificial flowers and greenery, select greenery varieties that are more on the muted green colors so that it won’t look and feel like it is plastic (although it is!)
In addition, consider using white vases so that no one will see the stems – which is what will give away if it is a fake arrangement!
Here are tips on how to make fake flowers arrangements look more real!
Also, if you are looking for fresh and easy greenery garlands, here is a step-by-step guide!
MENU and PLACE CARDS: If you’re still practicing your calligraphy skills, a simple hack is to print out the text you want to include on regular paper and trace over (careful not to make holes) the leaves.
Lift the paper, and you’ll have a guide to write the names and menu using a white ink pen.
HACK ALERT: get a silk potted banana plant (see link); you need to cut off the leaves and get on with your calligraphy (and tracing!) skills!
RE-PURPOSING: If you chose to buy products (especially for a micro wedding!), select products that you can easily store and that you can also bust out on your next event.Products that can work easily with other designs/themes.
This lush greenery wedding design is one of our favorite designs! Just altogether classic, yet with some details, it can be easily modernized.
For DIY centerpieces, you can store the finished products in boxes from your local hardware store with rubber non-slip liners for dry centerpieces.
If you are filling up the vase with water, only fill it out halfway through so the water won’t spill while in transit.
Looking for boxes that you can stack will make it easier for you to transport them. Non-slip rubber liners in between boxes will be your best friend to avoid any slipping while in transport.
If you are not able to stack, you can pre-bundle the flowers using pipe cleaners and stack them gently in a box. This way, when you get to the venue, you can assemble, fluff, and set them up easier and faster.
Don’t forget to label boxes and have a “visual” sample of how things are supposed to be set up as a reference.
Before committing to a DIY project, it’s important that you evaluate what’s on your plate and estimate how much time it will take you to complete a task.
By the same token, also consider “phantom costs” associated with DIY projects like supplies. packaging, storing, transportation, and most importantly, being open to mistakes and re-doing things, which means you might need to re-purchase things to start over.
