Prairie Chic Wedding II

When you have a huge entrance to a wedding or reception it is sometimes overwhelming and costly to decorate.  I wanted to pair down the focal point to the entrance while keeping with the theme of the wedding.  I was happy with what I came up with and it didn't cost me anything but the flowers.  Take a look.

I, or should I say my better half, hinged the three doors together to create a screen.  I hung a chalk board off one of them and then just added plants.  I realize not everyone has old doors lying around, but keep your eyes open and you can pick them up pretty cheap.  The saying on the chalkboard came from Pinterest.  I hope this gives you some good ideas.

Praire Chic Wedding

Yesterday I decorated for a Wedding.  It has been a work in progress over the past couple months.  Although a wedding can be labor intensive, the end result is so worth it.  Here are just a couple of my projects.  There will be more posts and pictures to come.

This is one of the centerpieces.  The smokey purple bottles were from Michael's.  I purchased the little frames from the scrap booking department from Michael's, added a monogram, and attached the frame to the bottle with a ribbon.  I then tied the two bottles together with burlap.  The main flowers I used were Spray Roses and Ranuculus.

I alternated each table with this arrangement.  I covered a mason jar in burlap, added crocheted lace, and again attached a monogrammed frame with ribbon.  I think they turned out great and most importantly the bride was very happy.
