Hello!  I wish I knew about this board before I got married.  We were married a week before Halloween and couldn't afford floral centerpieces.  Solution?  The pumpkin patch!  My husband and I bought 15 white pumpkins and carved the table number into each pumpkin.  We also carved three larger pumpkins with our first name initials and my new last name's initials (so, P, A, & G... or GAP?).  We bought a bunch of smaller mini pumpkins and gourds to decorate the reception-- an auto museum.  After the wedding, all the guests with kids took the pumpkins home for their kids.  Much fun!  The leaves you see in the centerpiece pic are nice paper cut in leaf shapes with a heavy-duty die cut from the elementary school that I worked at.





To keep the car theme... my husband had an extra car hood from a car he gutted.  He spray painted it black and we made it our own guest book.  It hangs on the wall.



...and some cars to appreciate
