Bride and Groom table signs

For the bride and groom, I made this for a best friend.  Her son is getting married and I made these for the head table at the rehearsal dinner.

I stamped their names on tags, glued to burlap, placed them in a frame.

Gathered up some ribbon and made a bunch of bows.
Attached ribbon on edges of frames.  The day of the rehearsal dinner, I added fresh sunflowers and placed them on the head table.  Rehearsal dinner was at an old train depot in Gainsville, TX.

Here is a better shot of the frame close up looks old and rustic.

I thought after the wedding, they could remove the ribbon and hang them in their home.
Here they are at the rehearsal dinner.

Talk about a wow to this room.  Simplicity at its best. The mother of the groom gathered all shapes and sized of jars.  There was about 18 on each table.  We filled them with battery operated flicker tea lights (no mess)  I added simple babies breath bouquets to each table.  The head tablewas finished off with added jars of sunflowers.  What a beautiful, cheery statement. As it got later into the night the jars looked simply stunning. 

How did she get so many jars?  Pam just put the word out to her friends that she needed jars and voila, they came pouring in.
