Rocks, Rocks And More Rocks

You have read all about our venues and the ceremony decor but I have not talked at all about the reception decor. Well there is a good reason for that. Up until a couple days ago I had no idea what it was going to look like. Total fail, I know. Isn't this like one of the things you should figure out at the beginning of your planning?

I think my problem started when all the photos I found while researching were elaborate, flower filled tables. I am not into flowers. I wanted something simple. Then a few days ago I came across this photo:

And it got me thinking. Wouldn't it be cool if we could have a unifying element that brought all the things on the table together. Why not use the rocks to do that?  So I started researching a little more and found some inspiration for centerpieces with rocks in them.

But when I saw this photo I did a little victory wiggle in my chair because I knew this was perfect!

Add a table runner, some small votive candles and a few rocks scattered around:

Plus perhaps a Martha Stewart style I-Spy game for the table. Our very own HisPookie created a great example for her wedding:

And you end up with something like this:

Yea OK my Photoshop skillz are not the best but what do you think? Does it fit with the rustic-chic feel we are going for?
