I like that your altar is very simple. What did you use?
We bought 2 plastic terra pots, and two 10 foot 2X4 posts and cut them to 8 feet tall. We then set them in the pots and used quickcrete concrete to set them in place making sure it was level to the ground. The top is another 2X4 cut to the width of how wide you want the alter to be. Then we bought ivory draping fabric at Walmart that didn’t have a sheen to it and covered the posts. I ordered flowers to go on the altar and then we tucked tulle underneath the flowers to give it some fluff.
It came out a bit different than my inspiration picture, but it still looked beautiful. Here was my inspiration picture below. I was wanting it to drape like curtains like in the picture below but my husband did a beatiful job covering the posts not knowing how exactly I wanted it.
