2. Beachy elements like coral or shells make for a natural centerpiece that will be sure to wow your guests!

4. Herbs! Not only will your tables smell delicious but herbs like rosemary, sage, and thyme add an unexpected yet natural element to your overall design. 

5. Branches are simple and organic without the fussiness of a large floral display. 

6. Stones or rocks are a great way to give your tablescape a more organic feel that compliments an outdoor rustic setting.
