We wanted the feeling of the marriage blessing to be carefree and classy, by picking lace, burlap, and soft blues, corals and pinks we were able to pull off a simple inspired vintage country reception. My good friend let me borrow some of her table and chairs from her rental company. I purchased longs rolls of burlap in the floral area at the craft store since it was much cheaper than in the ones in the craft area. I ordered 25 inexpensive napkins on eBay since I knew I could reuse them. I already had three long white tablecloths that I bought for Easter and my aunt saved me because she had the perfect blue plates. Between her, my mom, and myself we had enough wine glasses and silverware. I already had tons of mason jars that I use for canning so I just needed to do buy ribbon, burlap, and lace to decorate each jar. Most of the mason jars had an electric tea light and the rest had white and soft pink roses and other greenery from our courtyard. The silverware was wrapped in the white napkins and tied with twine. Jack and our friend did an amazing setting up and decorating the table while I finished getting ready. I didn't need to change a thing!
