Barn Wedding DIY Decor Ideas: From Entrance to Table
For the ceremony, create a whimsical hand-lettered chalkboard sign that lists the wedding party and the order of service. Then for the reception, guide guests to their tables with a cork board seating chart that is basically cards hung on twine with tiny bunting pennants pinned alongside!
Extend an extra-special welcome to guests with a display of wildflowers tucked into cowboy/girl boots plus more in tin buckets. Sure to make everyone smile!
To grace each table, have sweet centerpieces of baby’s breath in twine-wrapped mason jars. Then line the place settings with clever kraft paper runners hand-stamped with your monogram.
