Sadly, there are NO signs of spring around here in Colorado. We are still getting hammered with snow! UGH! I have seen so many spring inspirations out there, but I just can’t get there yet since we are buried in snow still. Today, I am sharing my last winter post of a Moody Winter Rustic Tablescape that I have created for our son’s 21st birthday that is fast approaching.
I cannot believe I am saying that…that our son is turning 21! A close friend and client of his are taking him on a private jet to Las Vegas to celebrate, so my little dinner party will be a little more “low key” than an extravagant weekend in Vegas!
As I mentioned, we are still buried in snow so I wanted the table to have a bit of wintery flair. Plus, my biggest goal was to make sure it had a masculine feel since we are celebrating his birthday with a few of his friends.
A Moody Winter Rustic Tablescape
Nothing says “moody” more than black which is where I started. My black plaid napkins are not only “moody” but also fit so well for a masculine-themed table. Topping them off with these Chateau Handcrafted Acacia Wood Charger Plates really warms up the place settings.
For the glassware, I kept things pretty simple.
Anytime I am trying to create a look like this, I bring out my Twig Flatware to complement a rustic look.
A Moody Winter Rustic Tablescape with a Natural & Rustic Centerpiece
When putting this tablescape together, I was considering that I would be entertaining a group of young men. No frills allowed so why not throw a few birch logs on the table?! No flowers allowed either so I used fresh Italian Ruscus (sourced below) to weave through the logs for natural freshness. What do you think?!
I just love how easily it weaves around the logs. It is super easy to work with!
More Rustic or Masculine Table Setting Ideas
Having a son and a husband, I frequently set tables with a masculine or rustic flair. I try to keep things casual and not fussy for them. Here are a few of my past posts to stop by for more ideas…

Creating a moody winter rustic tablescape for a group of guys is actually easier than you think! It is important to me to set a proper table even if for a group of 20-year old’s. I think it sets the bar for them to see the importance of sitting down for a nice meal at home, especially for a special occasion! Don’t you think?!
