Hello Bees! I just got engaged and am starting to plan for our reception. We are having it at a cabin near our church, and I am planning on decorating with a woodsy/nature theme. I LOVE the idea of hanging mason jar lanterns, or other lights, but there doesnt seem to be anywhere to hang them. This party had paper lanterns, but I dont think those really fit into the woodsy theme. It is also an afternoon wedding so I think it might be stupid to have hanging lights. Does anyone have any decorating ideas for this space? I think i also am going to have long rectangular tables in 2 long lines vs. the round tables.
Thank you in advance for your help!

Also, does anyone have any ideas on how to cheaply spruce up chairs like these? I love chair covers, but i just cannot afford them. Thanks!

It’s easy to make your own little slipcovers just for the backs of the chairs.Standard size napkins can be sewn together on 3 sides and slipped over the back of the chair.(check your measurements first, obviously). You have lots of time to find a geat deal on napkins or fabric.
like this only just do the back
The bunting/banner idea is great. You can use 3M Command Hooks on the walls to suspend the line from. Those hooks come off the wall with absolutely no damage.
Try to use tablecloths that are a little loger than the ones shown in the pic.
This would be a perfect venue to use vintage tablecloths as overlays with mismatched china etc.

How about covering the chairs with fabric bows, like these (but in maybe burlap or another color):
As for the mason jars I would say maybe place them in the windows or have them hang from some string lights:
Or even frost some mason jars and use LED lights like this:
You can also incoprate them in a zillion other ways, see my post on mason jars:
