Good morning! I don’t know if I have officially announced it here on the blog yet. Buuuut if not, here we go! ha! 🙂 My oldest son is getting married! Eek! Crazy, I know! How is he that old? Annnd how am I that old? 😉 He will be getting married in Utah in just a few weeks. Next month, we will be having an open house at our house to celebrate. So, I have been busy getting everything ready for that. I want to keep it sweet & simple. We are going with a farmhouse picnic theme complete with BBQ, candles, patio lights, outdoor games, buffalo check tablecloths, farmhouse metal chairs & of course, using lots of pictures in the decorating. I love decorating with pictures in my home, & a wedding reception is also the perfect place to display photos of the happy couple. So, today I’d love to share some wedding reception centerpiece ideas featuring MIXPIX Photo Tiles from I would love to get your thoughts! Let’s get started. 🙂

I want to give a shout out to my son’s future father-in-law who took these beautiful photos. He did a great job! They are the same ones that were used on their wedding invitations, too. So, I thought they’d be perfect to display at the open house. Mix Pix Photo Tiles from will work perfectly for this. They measure 8 inch by 8 inch. You can stick, remove & rearrange these anyway you’d like to. I decided that I am going to use an easel to display them at the open house, and then after we are finished I’ll pass them along to my son & daughter-in-law, & they can use these to decorate their new apartment. Wouldn’t they look cute displayed on the wall? 🙂

Alright, this is where I need you’re help! ha! I’ve been collecting, buying & borrowing things over the last few months to use for the centerpieces. Now it’s time for the fun part ~ putting everything together. 🙂

I came up with 5 different ways to arrange the centerpieces on the tables. Let me know your favorite!

I’m calling option #1 the wood slice centerpiece. It has a simple would slice, black open lanterns, candles & a cute picture on an easel.

Option #2 features a glass & metal lantern with candle, monogram & cute picture.

Option #3 has several different sized wood slices, a black lantern with a candle & a cute picture. I added a piece of burlap underneath it all. Are you a burlap fan? 😉

With option #4, I kept the burlap, brought back the monogram & added an oversized glass votive with a metal base.

Right now, option #5 might be my favorite! I kept the burlap, added an extra lantern & added some greenery around the picture. What do you think? 🙂

Now just imagine the candles burning & patio lights in the background. 🙂

Anyway you go, using pictures just brings that personal touch to any occasion. I love pictures! 🙂

I also wanted to show you this huge 30×40 photo canvas that I ordered from My son & his future wife will be getting married in the Provo City Center Temple in Utah. Since most of our guests won’t be able to make the drive out to Utah, I thought I’d bring a little bit of Utah to the open house. So, I bought this beautiful watercolor digital image of the temple from a seller online, & then I uploaded the image into & ordered this huge 30×40 canvas. It turned out so beautiful! I’m going to make paper flowers to hang along bottom. It’s going to be ah-mazing! 🙂 I’ll share more later!
