    Burlap "ribbon" should be on sale now along with sunflowers. The "ribbon" ruffled down the table with flowers interspersed would be lovely and very reasonable.

    Depending on the time of year you are planning for there are several ways you can do this CHEAPLY!!! My daughter had a fall rustic wedding so I found acorns, tiny pine cones, fake leaves from the Dollar Tree (the ones in fall colors), candles in fall colors from the Dollar Tree, and the small mirrors that you find in the candle section at the Dollar Tree. I sprayed glitter spray in clear on the leaves, acorns and pine cones. In the center of an 8 ft table, I placed one mirror down. Put an arrangement of the candles in different colors and size on top of them. Then making a "line" down the center of the table, I spread the leaves, pine cones and acorns. I had white table clothes with a burlap runner down the center. Everyone raved about how pretty her decor was!

    I guess it depends on the theme but if you are going full on TX cow girl kinda theme, hit up every thrift and antique store you can find for old flour sacks, grain sacks or laundry sacks and make a runner. Old boots to hold the flowers on the tables....just put a mason jar or something inside to hold the water, can use plain mason jars too. Ribbon should match your bride's made dresses and then can just go on everything. Baby's breath and lots of mums make a nice showing and hold up well in the heat. Bandannas for napkins. Good luck!

    I'd use canvas drop clothes for the table cloths. Punched tin cans of various sizes for candle holders set on slices of tree trunks.
