Burlap and Twine,
Mason Jars and Wine Bottles,
Raffia and Yarn,
Tea stained book pages and Lace,
Glitter and Ribbon...
These are the makings
for an eclectic mix of decorations
at our big country barn dance.
They were a fun mix of wedding centerpieces.
Photos inside of mason jars and photos on paper tags
kept the groupings personal.
Generational photos of Grandparent's weddings
were included along with the newlyweds.
We found an old
"Emily Post Etiquette" book at the thrift store,
tore out pages,
and layered them on burlap
around the wine bottles.
(lots of good laughs with all of the old rules)
To add some sparkle,
we used glitter in wine bottles
and mason jars.
This was quick and easy:
Use Pledge Floor Gloss.
Squirt in bottle.
Roll around until all interior glass is covered.
Sprinkle in glitter and roll until you have full coverage.
Yarn texture, tissue poms, raffia, and lace
were other wraps and accents in the mix.
Green glass paint.
Painted Burlap Purple for flowers.
We had so much fun
creating different looks.
Imagine how many different combinations
you can make -
and really for any special occasion.
I especially loved
the personal and family sentiment throughout
"our big country barn dance".
Enjoying life's celebrations!
