We are having the reception at the Church's social hall so it's not that great looking since the hall is used as the school's lunch room. We have a HUGE task ahead of us to make it look not so boring!
Centerpieces: We are "recycling" the pomanders from the church pews and using them as centerpieces. Again, I wanted to keep it simple since not many remember what you had for a centerpiece at your wedding!
WEDDING CAKE: As I'm typing all of this, I realize I have one theme: SIMPLE!! The lady we want to have do our wedding cake isn't familiar with how ribbon works on the cake so we have some trials to do.

For the cake stand, we are going to do the "turn a candle holder upside down" trick:
CAKE TOPPER: FI and I have given each other Willow Tree figurines so I want to use that as our cake topper.
Cakes with it on:
