1. Buy a bunch of fresh rosemary stalks {or use what’s leftover from one of your yummy recipes, like this citrus cocktail} and tuck an individual sprig under a ribbon. Here I tied a 2-inch wide ribbon in a soft gold hue and tucked the rosemary just off to the center.

2. Head to your backyard or flower market for some seasonal and easy to find leaves and flowers. Any combination of rustic greens will give this natural lush effect. Here I mixed in 2 stems of myrtle, a piece of seeded eucalyptus, feather grass and a sprig of mini white wildflowers. To secure, I tied with a burlap colored string and topped with a handwritten name tag. I love that this little bouquet can also serve as a little party favor and be taken home by your guests!

3. Repeat with a stalk of whatever green leaf element you chose for your mini bouquet {here I chose a sprig of myrtle} and lay above something with gold texture, like this Chilewich Dahlia coaster. The bright, bold dash of green on a fresh napkin really makes a statement.
