Rustic Wedding Details, The Camellia, Thunder Bay, On

If you're a person that doesn't like a lot of fluff, then going Rustic may be your choice when decorating for your Wedding. Here is a hand-tied bouquet of Floramatique Peonies (they're not real, but they look and feel like a real peony). We have added bunches of fresh lilacs for a casual feel.

These would make lovely ceremony decorations, using old maple syrup pails.  

Rustic tin ceiling tiles with masses of fresh lilacs , these would look lovely hanging on a fence or a wall. 

Signage is important at a Wedding - use an old ( or new) cabinet door, print up your sign on a computer, transfer onto wood by tracing over carbon paper. 

We used Cottage Paint on the door in the colour Cloudy Day , then a flat varnish on top for protection. Buy Cottage Paint at our store, The Camellia or check it out on line at

If you are having an outdoor Wedding, consider having an area set up for your guests with our no-see-um nets - these are 40 ft wide on the bottom, and can be hung anywhere. They come in this small pouch and when you open the package, the hoop springs out to a full size hoop. 

If you are using Mason Jars in your ceremony, you can use Cottage Paint ( this is the colour Veruca) to paint your jars. Fill with garden blooms. Just allow a longer dry time between coats, no 1/2 hour recoat time, on glass it would be more like 1/2 a day between coats.

For that perfect rustic touch for centrepieces, we have Black Ash wooden slices, these are a good size, and they are sanded, but not sealed. We have approximately 50 of these wood rounds for rent. Call to book a free Wedding consultation with Camille, or visit The Camellia between Wednesday and Sunday.
