As I've mentioned before, we're having our Texas reception at a game ranch. In my mind, this mostly translates to camo and guns, but as my mom has tried to make amply clear, the place really cleans up quite nicely. Still, I kind of want to keep the theme country and kind of backwoods, so if at all possible, that's what I want to do with the decorations...in a cute way obviously. No camo or guns, thanks.
Some inspiration I've been thinking a lot about:
Yellow, yellow, yellow. Simple flowers and a simple cake. Sweet and cheery.
Using mismatched vases and mason jars for the flowers. If I can't find any colored glasses, I read somewhere that you can get glass paint and tint the glasses yourself. Mismatched fabric with antique-looking floral patterns for the centerpieces.
Then there's the peach and the orange that I also love. I figure we can probably find ways to mix that in with the yellow to make the whole place feel warm and bright. Oh...and of course!
A simple, but elegant (and super tasty, super chocolaty!) groom's cake. This looks pretty much right up Kellen's alley. ;)
Just some thoughts on transforming a place for camo into a place for celebrating!
