The bride and groom sweetheart table had a French Cluny Lace tablecloth.

It actually wound up on the placecard table.
The guest book table had another wonderful Madeira organdy tablecloth on it. I wanted to mix it up a bit. This is the shot at the reception. I don't have a shot of it in the garden at the wedding.
The italian tole easel and the french pen holder were antiques. The guest book was also an antique that I designed. It was an 1860's binding, with pages made from business cards from the 1700's.
The dessert room had even more linens!
The non-traditional wedding cake. It has an antique German Erzgebirge couple on top.
There were many things I wasn't able to do because I broke my hand and had surgery 4 days before the wedding. In fact, looking back it is a miracle I pulled it off at all.
My sister ironed all of the tablecloths before the wedding. That was HUGE. We put down plastic, wool blankets, cotton quilts, sheets, on my 10' x 55" table, and away she went! It went so much more quickly than attempting to iron on an ironing board.
