Wrapping up...

...the posts on the "barn reception" today. I thought I'd share just a few "odd - n- end" pics with you. And again thanks so much for all your kind comments throughout this lil' journey. I have so appreciated it and all those who have linked up to it on other blogs - that was so sweet of you!

This lil' vignette was at the entry door - a topiary, large scale birdcage, a chalkboard, her "Nan's" antique lamp all surrounded by grapes, white pumpkins, hedge apples and yes - beans.

The "new" tv (a wedding gift to the bride and groom) that showcased a slide show of their years growing up and together... We made a simple banner for the front.

We also used several pocket wreaths filled with burlap, hedge apples, money plant, peacock feathers and topped off with a bird.

We brought in a few tree limbs - this one is dressed with tags and paper flowers.

Two great John Deere tractors were used at the entry with some yellow mums to pop off the building - and to compliment that great yellow - you know I'm a farm girl - I love tractors!

This was the loft area of the barn - again, you just can't beat tobacco canvas - it drapes so well. Of course burlap and more big paper flowers were used at the corners.

Come on in...

Thanks again - Tiff and Shane. You all were awesome and you were so good to me and my family. Those two weeks of decorating were filled with lots of laughs and loads of fun! Thank you for including me in your special day.
I wish you a life of happiness and love. May God bless you both!

Have a happy day everybody!
Next up - pictures of where our new house is gonna be! We are getting ready to get started!
And pics of the shoppe - Christmas in the Country - next Saturday - the 13th!

Awesome, awesome! I really have enjoyed the pictures of this beautiful wedding. It has given me a few more ideas to help the big one I am decorating for in June in a very similar type building. Lots of fabric and white lights have already been ordered!
Have a wonderful day Cathy!

What fantastic adornments! I love the draped barn. I had never heard of tobacco cloth,but it sure drapes well.
