I am in love with burlap!

So, I found burlap when I was trying to figure out something to add to my wedding!  I made centerpiece anchors on the table, using burlap squares and lace squares sewn together under tons of candles.  We got married in a barn setting.  Then I found that burlap was wonderful.  I have tons left over now, and I am finding little crafts to do with it, and amazing ideas for your home and wedding using burlap.  I think I am in love with potato sacks! 
These chairs are amazing!   Who would have thought that a little burlap and some print on a chair would be so elegant!  Its all in the presentation.  

I am not saying to go out and make pants out of burlap but who would have thought!   And curtains, amazing!
Love the hay bails and burlap!  Genius!   And I bet cost effective ; )  How about a fall event....I am drooling! 
I won't give too much away, but I have some projects out of burlap of my own that may be appearing...
In love with this wreath and window.....I see a project coming on!

Spot of tea!

I think its so neat if you can think of ideas for your wedding, using things that you normally use everyday.  Like teapots or teacups!  There are so many different resources to find vintage teapots and teacups and add flowers and other materials to arrange your centerpieces for your wedding.  Here are some ideas!  I am a sucker for tea, I just love it everyday, so I can't help but love this post!
I absolutely love this!  I mean you can use this in your every day life. Find a few pots that you think are attractive and add cut flowers.  Just something simple but elegant, and something unexpected!

Welcome to the wedding.....doors and more

When you welcome your guests, make sure you are paying attention to detail.  Even the doors to your church or the doors to the reception could be important when you are sharing your day with your friends and family.  Here are some wonderful ideas to decorate the entrance to your wedding ceremony or reception.  Love them!  
This is such a personalized way to not only display initials but to welcome your guests.  
 I really love the natural look.  It is more casual, and smells amazing with all the herbs and lavender.  I bet you could make this a do-it-yourself project for your wedding.  
 Your wreath doesn't have to be made of natural materials, how about merely, material!
