DIY Burlap & Lace Wedding

Burlap & Lace Runners

I haven’t had many Pinterest project-esque posts on this blog since its debut, and that is because I’ve been working on a massive project that has engulfed my time: my sister-in-law’s wedding!

“Burlap & Lace” was the name and DIY was the game. I did just about everything myself for the reception: made the table runners, designed & executed the floral arrangements, tracked down all of the vases, ordered the candles & materials, and created the banners & entry table art.

Here are some shots of the reception hall before its transformation. It was at a Knights of Columbus hall and didn’t offer much in terms of character. So we had our work cut out for us!

Here is a look at the tables after completion, while under the overhead lights:

And here are some shots of the reception hall as the guests saw it, under the lights of one large chandelier and candle light.

And that’s the gist of the wedding weekend! More burlap & lace posts to come I’m sure…
