In the basement of the farm we found these great chalkboard panels that we used to write table assignments on. I wrote labels for each guest and they were tied around a mason jar, and we arranged the jars by table number to make it easier for guests to find during cocktail hour. I also ordered lots of fun straws (from Etsy), because what's a mason jar without a fun straw? ;) To decorate the table I scattered about some doilies that I spray painted with gold or silver glitter. Cocktail hour was held in the basement and outside (where there was cornhole and an ice cream truck that came rolling up- more on that later!), which worked well as the reception was held upstairs and the night flowed pretty naturally.

Here's a look at the reception tables!
This was our sweetheart table. I didn't particularly want to be separated from the rest of the guests, but with the number of bridesmaids and groomsmen we had, the numbers fit really well for having eight to a table, so that's really the only reason I decided on the sweetheart table. I decorated it with some extra leftover touches from decorating- some vases, glittery flags, and a lovely burlap banner that I thought would fill the table space well. We liked it just spread across the table as opposed to pinning it up somewhere.
