Shabby Chic Banquet Decorating

The Pastors wife asked me to decorate for our Mother Daughter banquet.  Of course, I said YES!!  I love that kind of stuff! 

I wanted to do something a little different than your usual church banquet decor, but had to be mindful of the budget they allowed for decorating ($50).

I really like the idea of drinking out of mason jars.  I think I may have enough of the clear jars for that!

I was really wanting to do a shabby chic/vintage kinda decor.  Tonight at Tuesday Morning (love that store), I found some sweet paper place mats that are blue with pink roses for .39 per package!  That is perfect (& totally in my budget).  That's two dollars down & $48 to go!  

I am thinking blue mason jar vases and glass milk jugs with wildflowers for centerpieces & vintage sheets for tablecloths.  I have enough of those to use (so $0).  
 I also found these beautiful roses made from.....coffee filters!  These would look beautiful in the blue mason jars & would match the place mats perefctly!

I may also do the big tissue puff balls hanging from the ceiling (tissue paper is inexpensive.

Do you have any ideas??  I would love to hear them!

I found these great pictures at Your Home Based Party

    Maybe some of the ladies have family doilies or linens they would like to share as part of the decor. Also maybe a pennant garland?
