Hello everyone!

This is Shawna from Poppies and Sunshine and I am so excited to be guest posting here thanks to Diana!

What a wonderful lady you are!

:) Here are some of my favorite DIY wedding reception ideas.2

They not only look fantastic, but are also inexpensive, so you are saving yourself money, which is always an important factor when planning a wedding!

17. Mix & Match...

Mix & Match...

I love creating a mix-matched look, which can give a wedding reception a real vintage charm.2

One of the ways to achieve this look is to use vintage plates.

Borrow some from a grandparent, parent, friends, or buy some at a thrift store very inexpensively.

16. Burlap...

Burlap...

Use burlap for an inexpensive table runner that is simple and rustic, yet elegant.

15. Teacups

Teacups

Teacups make great centerpieces.

And, of course, they don't have to be matching, so borrow some or buy them at a thrift store.

14. Candle Holders...

Candle Holders...

Use candle holders of different sizes and colors for centerpieces.

Again, these could be borrowed or found at a thrift store inexpensively.

13. Old Bottles & Jars...

Old bottles and jars can be saved from your kitchen with the labels peeled off and used for pretty and simple vases.

12. Potted Plants...

Potted Plants...

Potted plants can be used as centerpieces and can double as favors to give out to guests.

Plants can range from houseplants, flowers, or herbs.

11. Chairs...

Chairs...

Create the mix-matched look again by collecting and borrowing different looking chairs.

10. Hanging Vases...

Hanging Vases...

Using jars as hanging vases is great for an outdoor reception.

Just tie raffia or twine securely around the jar and hang.

9. Photographs...

Photographs...

Filling jars with old photographs of loved ones adds a sentimental and vintage touch to any area of your reception.

One great location for these is placing them near the guest book.
