Lath Boxes and Table Tops!

It's that time of year once again! Friends and family gather sharing laughter, love and yummy traditional foods around the table. We here at Beekeeper's Cottage in Leesburg, Virginia offer a wonderful way to create fabulous table-scapes using lath boxes and hobnail jars.

Our lath, which means thin wood, is reclaimed from tobacco barns and fashioned into various sized boxes from 12" to 32". Standing just 5" tall and 7" wide, they provide the perfect foundation for all kinds of rustic elegance! Here we've added votive candles tucked in hobnail jars with epsom salt bottoms. Then to bring out the season, we've dressed the box with sprigs of holiday greenery. So festive!
