We have been so blessed! We want to say thank you to our family members and friends that worked together to make our wedding celebration so beautiful. With God at the center of our union I think everything looks brighter and more joyful!
Burlap and Lace Wedding Decorations
Our Burlap and Lace Country Style Wedding Decorations were truly a collaborative effort and I wanted to share them with you! As farmers we wanted to incorporate elements from the farm into our wedding decor.
I love the head table back drop (which we rented) and covered with strips of cloth. I chose several different neutral colors of fabric. We ripped strips one to four inches wide and tied a knot around a piece of sisal twine that became the top of the back drop.
I made the Mr. and Mrs. banner by printing letters as large as I could on my home printer and then cutting them out to use for the template. I placed the paper template on pieces of burlap and painted the letters black and strung them on another piece of twine.
The turkey farmer found small trees which he made a base for and lagged the trees to the base. He spray painted them white and family and friends wrapped the trees tightly with white Christmas lights that I found on clearance for $1 per box! Just remember to take some white extension cords along with you, for they can be hard to find at crunch time!
And how about that cake?!? I’m so proud that my mom made that beautiful cake for us! She also bought the wood stand and servers that I will always keep and treasure! Great cake and memory. Thank you mom!
The mason jars have been in our family and I borrowed some of the more modern pieces of glass to vary the height. We did purchase about four bunches of baby’s breath to sprinkle throughout the hall on Friday before the wedding.
Wedding Dessert Table Cookies
Thanks to family members that contributed so many great cookies to our dessert table! Favorites include:

Friends That Go the Distance!
These girls wrapped cardboard boxes with burlap and used long pearly pins to hold the burlap and lace in place. I like how the boxes gave the table height variation. That also allowed us to put more cookies on the table. Access to more cookies more quickly is important people. These girls didn’t drive from one side of the Midwest to the other for nothing. They had purpose!
I used the bucket milker from our family’s dairy farm along with some branches and glued burlap flowers onto the branches. Our guest book sat on the table along with the man-style scrapbook that the Turkey Farmer and Little Farmer used to propose.
Thank you to so many people that helped with ideas, made decoration, food, helped set-up, tear down and pray and support us in many more ways. We are truly grateful!
