    decorations for the AHR have been bogging me down for quite some time...BUT the past few days my mom, my aunt, and i have been getting down to business! i'm posting pics of everything we've come up with in the past few days (some of the ideas were thought out beforehand but NOT executed...)

    *a little background on the AHR:
    -6 days after the wedding
    -at a place called Texas Old Town
    -ambiance is rustic country (but not cheesy!)
    -we're sending out approx. 250-300 invites.....
    -24 tables with 4 different centerpieces

    ordered denim tablecloths and making runners with side zippers

    centerpiece #1: mason jars and milk bottles

    centerpiece #2: patron bottles (large and small)

    centerpiece #3: galvanized cowboy hat

    cowboy hat detail: using beer bottles (texas & mexican beers - to represent where we're from & where we were married!)

    **centerpiece #4 will be galvanized flower vases?? any ideas welcomed!**

    continued...

                  Very cute idea and seems to go well with the place your have chosen along with where you live.

                      Cute! We did that for my grandparents 50th party. We used mason jars for centerpieces. It was WAY cute.
