Who says wedding receptions have to be expensive?
Last week my darling friend and neighbor's daughter got married.
She asked all of her friends for help.
So we did.
This is just the top layer of the cake, the rest of it had already been eaten!
It's sitting on a wooden, handmade box that has cute little messages burned into it.
AND the birds on top are made of balsam wood.
They had the reception in an old barn just west of town. The farmer let them
have their reception in it for free. He just asked that the family do some sort
of community service instead of paying him. Great idea!
See that mower hanging from the ceiling? It's decorated with grapevine
and little lights and chandeliers. That middle one is from my
entryway. The mister was kind enough to take it down and haul it
over to the barn for me.
The mother of the bride made these fabulous garlands out of coffee filters.
Loved that look.
The flowers were done by a friend.
Borrowed old doors for the photo booth backdrop.
Lots of presents for the newlyweds.
My friend Janet and I made these little three inch pies for the reception.
Apple, berry, and cherry. One hundred and fifty of them.
It was such a fun day and with everyone helping it wasn't a huge amount of work.
And it didn't cost a huge amount of money.
