I love going to thrift stores. You never know what treasures you might find. I think I got this trait from my dad because at his house this summer he gave me some curtains he bought at a garage sale. The curtains would be hideous hanging up in a home (sorry dad) but cut up and placed on a wedding table for napkins, gorgeous! That’s when I had the idea to start buying curtains at thrift stores to make napkins out of for our wedding. The criteria, they had to equal less than $.41 each (how much a rental company rents their napkins for) and well, pretty. The different colors and patterns on the tables cut down on the need for elaborate, expensive flowers. Plus, my family has been in on the fun of hunting for different curtains. Love!

During one of the weddings we planned last summer at Timber Ridge in Keystone, Colorado we came across a great story that involved a very popular wedding trend; mason jars. The bride’s family had a really creative way of collecting them. When I told Rachael about the story, we knew we needed to include it in our green/recycled wedding details series. The mother of the bride was an elementary school teacher and told her students she would give them a piece of candy for every jar they brought in. The kids were hungry for candy and the results were amazing. There were so many mason jars in every shape and size. We put a candle in each and it just lit up the room. Perfection!
