Vintage Rustic Wedding - Reception Table Decor

For our Wedding in April, we chose to have a different arrangement of objects on each table. For the base, a square of fabric, cut with pinking shears (for the zig-zag effect). Each table had a mason jar (some vintage, some new) with an arrangement of fresh flowers, with glass in the bottom. There was one vintage camera (all from my own collection), a bird or owl, and either a bird house or bird cage.





For our head table, I hand painted these wooden owl masks I got from Joann Fabrics.


The turquoise yarn bird I purchased at Target in their Christmas Closeout.


Each table setting had a tin of BBQ Rub, a CD of some great love songs I compiled, and a Wedding Mad Libs!

My Wedding Cake

My Wedding Cake in all it's glory.
I wanted something whimsical, hand made looking, and different than anything out there. I feel like it was a success!

The owls I purchased on Etsy - Claylicious


The Cake was made by It's a Piece of Cake by Maggi in Auburndale, Florida


The cream colored wedding cake stand was loaned, the bunting was made by my friend Brooke Ernst, I got the Birdhouse from Joann Fabrics and painted them turquoise


I wanted it to look like stitches sewn into the wedding cake :)


The knife and server are gifts (Martha Stewart in Macy's)

Jordan. You know what to do.

These are only suggestions for my photographer. Let's face it, sometimes you gotta hope for some moments to happen that just aren't planned.

If I get one of these - WONDERFUL! The last one is a big hope though.

There's a swing, but no bench like this... we can work with whatever we got. ha!
The Horse stables would be perfect for something like this.
We'll see how willing we are to get on the ground. hmm.
probably not gonna have the awesome car I'd hoped for. We'll see if we can borrow someones car for this.
I'm having a "photobooth" area in which a frame like this will be included... it's turquoise. yay!

Wedding Rehearsal and other stuff.

My parents' wedding anniversary was the night of my rehearsal dinner <3
I bought this cotton eyelet dress at Target, added Ribbon around the waist, paper flowers from Michael's and pearl beads... all hot glued!

I printed all of the wedding fans, cut them out and spray glued together with wide popsicle sticks from Michael's. Card Stock CDs I designed, printed, cut and folded. (with lots of help from Mom and Brooke!)

For the BBQ rub favors, I purchased the tins at Michael's, which came with printable stickers I designed. Also my recipe for BBQ rub!
