Chelsea chose very cheap and simple glass cylinder vases for her oregano bouquets, then wrapped them in burlap to lend a little rustic charm. (Stick-on velcro was her clever solution for wrapping the burlap, but a hot glue gun will do as well.) A mixed herb nosegay decorates each place setting, and beverages in mason jars are garnished with mint leaves.
We love how simple the linens and dishes are on this table... clearly, you don't need fancy china or crystal to create an elegant meal. Plants and flowers can really do most of the work! If you're going to make herbal bouquets garni for each place setting, be sure to keep them in water right up until party time.
