Here's a couple of my DIY projects that worked out beautifully!
To really get the 'Shabby Chic' vibe, I made my own ribbon banner.

Then, inside the reception hall, we set the tables with hand-embellished mason jars that really tied things together
To Make the Banner
-I went to GoodWill and bought scraps of fabric and some old curtains, pillow cases and sheets. (It was the perfect way to find those floral patterns without spending tons of cash!)
-I found the roses at Hobby Lobby in the Christmas decorations!!
(I got them season half off after the holidays)
-Then I just tore them into strips and tied them onto a twine rope
