My daughter and I attended a really cute

DIY Country Wedding Reception

in a barn last weekend and I tried to take as many photos as I could...but alas some of the pics are not so great but I think you will still see the details well enough to enjoy!

Centerpieces

They used large mason jars that they painted a yummy blue color. They placed the jars on a round piece of bark that has lace and pearls on it.

Around the main centerpiece they used thrift store mini goblets with small bouquets of fresh flowers in them.

Some of the goblets were spray painted to match the big blue mason jars.

Dessert Table

I fell in love with this side board painted blue and used as a dessert table. You will notice that my friend made a few of her cake plates using my idea that I posted here..IKEA no glue cake plate they are nice a big and hold a lot of goodies! Another fabulous idea they did was to use big glass jars filled with cookies.

Soup and Grilled Cheese Bar

A cute chandelier hung above the soup and mini grilled cheese sandwich bar! Very cute idea! I couldn't get a great picture because so many people were blocking the soup bar area. Another great idea to crate a backdrop using old farm house doors leaned up against the wall with a darling rag banner strung across it...no need for nails, tape or staples!

An old crate made a great pedestal for this pretty urn filled with fresh roses!

This barn is pretty good sized as you can tell looking at the crowd of people but they really made it feel cozy and cute with all their details. The tablecloths were burlap with brown silky blanket trim all around the edge to give it a nice look.

Polaroid Pictures

As we left there was this little patio area where a person took your picture using a new Polaroid camera and then the little pics were strung up using s string and mini clothes pins!

This is a picture of the picture they took that night. I didn't even know there were technology based polaroid cameras out there! Very cool! There were more ideas but I couldn't get the lighting to work with my iPhone but hopefully you have gotten some great ideas!
