The wonders of burlap...for a wedding reception!

PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!
You can now find me at

-----------------------------------------------------------------

I don't know how many of you follow Cathy over at Cobblestone Farms, but she was given the task of creating a dreamy wedding reception: "something casual, kind of "earthy", somewhat fallish - yet no orange pumpkins or mums" were the bride's requests.


She delivered.   And she shows off the goods in 4 posts with lots of how-she-did-it's too.  I'll tease you with a few shots....You'll notice a plethora of burlap and all manner of gorgeousness, most of which puts Martha herself to shame.....




Chippy vintage windows and tissue paper puffs...paper lanterns and punkins and oh my.....


Look at this mantle.  SWOON.


Oh yeah, and did I mention this was held in a BARN?


You simply MUST make a stop over at Cathy's to see the deliciousness......here are some links, though she will prolly add more:

Beautiful job Cathy!  I can't imagine a more perfect setting for a wedding reception.
You hit it out of the ball park!

I've been searching for crafting/decore blogs, and I love yours! I added your button to my page. I am a new homemaker and am having fun crafting and decorating, and I started my first blog over the summer to record the process. Thanks for this blog, and I can't wait to read more!
