My friend Melissa and her fiancé ran off to Gatlinburg, TN to get hitched and wanted a way to bring all their friends and family together to celebrate. They decided to go with an “I Do BBQ.”

She had me create the invitation above for them and then she came up with some really creative ideas! Here are her ideas for a Fall Themed I Do BBQ:

Everyone was greeted with a Jon Boat filled with your classic fall decorations- pumpkins, gourds, scarecrow and a Fall sign. She also had a chalkboard banner that she wrote Mr. and Mrs. Owen on there. Such a cute and unique greeting for her rustic fall themed I Do BBQ!

As soon as you walked in she had a sign that said “Pop a Top and Party Till You Drop”. In the bowl behind the sign she had got custom keychain bottle openers with their name on it. In the tub were bottles of Root Beer.

A way to make your thank you notes a little easier is to have your guests fill out their name on the return envelope!

She created a sign that had the “I DO BBQ” with the date and had guests sign the board as the guestbook

I absolutely love this idea! She had an old window that she used as a platter for her pies! This will also work great for cakes or cupcakes

As a way to entertain the kiddos at the party, she got small pumpkins and different art material and allowed the kids to decorate them!

Decorating with Travel Maps

Traveling is my husband and I’s FAVORITE thing to do! We just work and save up and then go travel somewhere new. I wanted to incorporate our love for travel with our decor in the bedroom! I created these travel maps from the countries and places that we have traveled. We decided the best idea was to start decorating with travel maps from all the places we have visited!

Then I decided to go with this clips that I got from Urban Outfitters to hang the photos, that way as we travel more places I can change out the photos or just add more! When I got the clips in they were a little larger than I was expecting but they still turned out great!
Here are these clips:

I am really happy with the way that it turned out… let me know what you think!
