Jennifer's Navy Burlap and Lace Wedding

I'm always excited to share and feature customer pictures. Jennifer sent me a few pictures from her recent Virginia wedding. She chose navy, tan, and cream burlap and lace bouquets and boutonnieres. 



This has to be the cutest little ring bearer! He is absolutely adorable!
Thank you to Jennifer for sharing pictures and letting me be a part of your wedding day! I send my congratulations and best wishes to you and your new husband for many years of love and happiness together!

Burlap and Lace Tablecloths

It's no secret with my friends that I have been hoarding, I mean collecting vintage lace for a while now.  I have tubs of  lace, doilies, and mismatched curtain pieces gathered from estate sales and friends who have helped add to my collection. I've layered these pieces over burlap before and had an idea to sew the lace and burlap together to create ready made table cloths. 



I remember when I decorated for my in-laws 50th anniversary party last spring how several people were amazed at how I took my random lace pieces to create the look and felt inspired to bring the convenience to you.



These table cloths will be easy for anyone to set up for vintage themed weddings, parties, or showers. The 60 x 60 burlap fabric is dripping with layers of lace and accented with doilies. All you need to do is add a centerpiece! The lace is sewn to the burlap, although there is some allowance for bunching up the lace to expose more burlap. The table covers will work well with wooden spool tables as shown or card tables for your next event. 

After battleing with my sewing machine, I made five layered tablecloths this weekend that are now available in my shop. I hope to keep adding more to my inventory soon. 


Last year at Kadyn's outdoor Farm Wedding, we had planned to layer the tables with lots of lace, but didn't account for the wind blowing 30 mph. The lace can't blow away with these! 


Lots of lace ruffles...

New Western Cowboy Rope Christmas Wreaths


I've had several people contacting me about the rope Christmas wreaths I made a few years ago. It's been a while since I made any rope wreaths, but this week I was able to get 6 new ones made and listed in my shop.

Christmas greenery, pine, holly, jute webbing, raffia, brown glittery sprays, and a horse show create this cowboy Christmas wreath. 




A little grit and glitz for this wreath as red and gold glitter ting and Merry Christmas sign are combined with rustic burlap and a team ropers lariat.





Snow frosted pinecone star ornaments are featured in this wreath with assorted greenery, berries, brown glitter ting, and a wide burlap bow.   





Red berries and glitter are prominent on this rope wreath. A Merry Christmas sign hangs in front of the burlap bow






This is the jingle bell wreath with greenery, holly, brown glitter ting, and burlap. 





This wreath isn't Christmassy, but it would make a great Christmas gift for your favorite cowboy or cowgirl. This wreath can be displayed year round as part of your western home decor. Assorted greenery and feathers are tied together with a burlap bow. 


I'm not sure how many more rope wreaths I'll be able to make this season and each are one of a kind, so grab 'me while they're hot off the press! Head over to my shop at gypsyfarmgirl.etsy.com to lasso your wreath today!
