Veneer Tabletop

Martha Stewart Weddings, 2006

Warm up tables with wooden accents. All you need is wood veneer paper to turn plain glass vases into perfectly matched pieces that can hold flowers or candles. Lay paper down the center of the table for a runner (allow a 2-foot overhang at each end). At each place, store-bought favor boxes (fill with any little treats) are embellished with ribbon and a place card. Buy a few extra boxes, and use the lids to hold table numbers: Turn lid upside down, cut slits in opposite sides, and slip in numbered card. Wood paper and boxes from Lenderink.

 
Vase How-To
Wood veneer sheets are as easy to cut as paper and come in lots of tones (we used maple). Cut a strip of veneer to the height of a glass cylinder; it should be long enough for ends to overlap slightly. Use double-sided tape to affix one short end of veneer to glass; wrap around cylinder, and secure with more tape. To finish, tie ribbon around the middle.
