We’ve got warm weather on the brain and it’s showing — this week, if we’re not talking spring and summer weddings, we’ve got beach and picnic dining on our minds.
The traditional table number is long gone — in its place are a variety of new trends and options, from maps to baby photos and other imaginative ideas, taking its place. But the notion of adding a little sparkle and shine to the table gets us every time. (If you’re not aware of our love for glitter — please, let us remind you.)
Sure, something as menial as a paper napkin can totally go overlooked, especially since it’s used and tossed afterward.

Saarloos + Sons, a family vineyard in Los Olivos, Calif., has made it their mission to make wine a special experience for couples on their big day. Enjoy a Bride bottle, a grenache blanc that’s reflective of the Saarloos family matriarch, or a Groom bottle, grenache noir that represents the strong patriarch of the brand. Or, just customize a bottle with your new family name on it and the wedding date.

Behold, the wine table from Uncommon Goods. The whimsical brand has a bamboo wine table that has the same functionality as a tiki torch or a beach umbrella.
