A Fall Wedding Reception

This will most likely be the only "Wedding" post you ever find on Nikki's Nacs, but my sister recently got married, and I decorated for the reception.

The goal for the reception decor was for everything to be simple, pretty, easy to execute, and very budget friendly. The original plan was to order flowers for centerpieces, but it occurred to me that I didn't have the refrigerator space to keep flowers. I was also hosting dinner at my house the night before the reception, so I needed something that could be done in advance. We quickly switched gears, and landed on a simple fall theme.

My mom had a pretty nice collection of pumpkins that my sister and I have held on to, so that was our starting point. I was going to purchase more, but my sister's new MIL also had a nice collection of pumpkins that we were able to use.

The venue for the reception included white table clothes, so we decided to use burlap on top of the white.

The only thing that was purchased for the centerpieces, in addition to the burlap, was teal burlap ribbon, yarn, and scrapbook paper to make tags.

There were 6 large round tables, and 4 smaller bar tables. Each table had a different centerpiece. I decorated my table at home with all of the different centerpieces before hand and took pictures so that it would be easy to decorate the morning of the reception. I was a huge time saver!

Ok, enough talking. I am going to let the rest of the pictures speak for themselves.

It looks like I missed getting a picture of one of the tables. Oh well, It had pumpkins and burlap on it.

The card and gift table.

There was also a burlap bunting on the front of this table, but my picture didn't turn out.

 In lieu of a guest book, all of the guests signed this monogram wreath with a metallic sharpie. There was also a journal on the table for anyone that wanted to leave a note.

I hope you enjoyed getting a peak at my sister's wedding reception. It was an honor to be able to decorate for her. She gave me free reign and had no opinion.

    What a beautiful collection of pumpkins! I also love the teal with the burlap... this turned out really nice! I am sure it did help to take photos of them, so you could quickly set it up that day.
