Whiskey and wine barrels are having a moment right now. From rustic to fancy to backyard, there is a purpose and a place for barrels at weddings or gatherings. Check out 7 great ways that we came up with to incorporate barrels into your next party!
1. Just add florals
Create a focal point for bouquets and arrangements by placing them on a barrel. (If you were at the 2017 Texarkana Bridal Fair, you saw us do this in person 😉
2. Flowers not in your budget? Plants work, too.
These succulents placed on a scarf/handkerchief/doily would be a great addition to a backyard barbecue, baby shower, engagement party, etc.
3. Make a table.
Use two barrels together to create a table to hold drinks, food, cake, or whatever you’d like. You can get creative with what’s bridged between the barrels, also; we’ve seen old doors, barnwood, and even a plate of glass work beautifully!
4. No seriously, make a table.
Yep, the barrel itself can be used as a table for guests to set drinks & bites while they mingle. Add stools to make pub tables.
5. Create a wall / barrier / entryway.
Use barrel placement to create “spaces” for your event. This is a good move for design and also helps your guests know where to go.
6. Create a functional focal point
Use barrels as a place for a guest book, favors, framed photos, or other decor that you want to make sure your guests stop to look at.
7. Create a keepsake
Ask guests to sign your barrel! You can incorporate into your new home or garden to have a functional memento of your big day.
