All of the burlap bags were different.
The two pictures below were so cute. Taylor was riding a little green plastic tractor and Emily is in front of a real John Deere green tractor, they are both about 3 or 4 years old in the pictures.
The candle holders the restaurant used tied in nicely with our rustic decor. They were filled with small pebbles.
This is my youngest grandson, Caden, he is seven. Taylor, the groom, is my oldest grandson. We also have another grandson, Tanner, and a granddaughter, Elisabeth.
Below is my husband, Joe, with Caden and my daughter, Ashleigh with her husband, Shawn (Caden's parents.)
Below is the head table where the wedding party sat.
I decorated the bride and groom's chairs:
The groom's chair had the burlap ribbon and lace with only the orange ribbon in a bow.
At the entryway a table held name place cards, the guests took theirs and sat where they wanted. That's my daughter, Alyson, the mother of the groom.
Next, on the left is a table displaying a photo album of Taylor's proposal to Emily, and a framed picture of the proposal with three little girls holding signs that says "Will" "You" "Marry" "Me." These little girls were also their flower girls. Click here to see the unusual proposal.
The bucket with burlap holds Pumpkin Pie Almonds, they were delicious! Have you ever had them?

The only pictures I took of the bride and groom were when they were listening to the "speeches" their family and friends made (with an "open microphone.")
Taylor is in the gingham shirt:
This is the only picture I took of the food, it is a chocolate Milky Way cake - yum! The rest of the menu was: Salmon, Chicken Kabobs, Green Beans and Almonds, Corn on the cob. Hors d'oeuvres were oysters on the half shell and scallops wrapped in bacon. The dinner was held at Southwood Golf Club.
I hope you enjoyed seeing our rehearsal dinner party, Thank you for visiting. I must tell you about the flowers, we were hoping they would bloom before the party (and they did!) We were also worried about the deer eating them!! LOL! (They didn't!)
I will post the wedding pictures soon, I'm waiting to get more from others. Here's one of me with them at the reception:
Next week I will post my Halloween tablescape, I hope to do it tomorrow. Being gone made me a little behind!
