My husband is from Pendleton, Oregon, so I thought it would be fitting if we used fabric scraps to make our bunting flags ~ besides the fact that my mom was donated tons of them for her art class. Here's a few pics of my creations:
Country right? Well, you konw what they say:
you can take the girl outta the country, but you can't take the country outta the girl!
I found some fab cardboard letters and have a "beer" flag for the kegs, must post pic.
I'll list items as I configure them or spend on them, hopefully by the end I'll be pleasantly surprised that I pulled this off!

Not counting the cost of rings or our 2011 honeymoon.
These are hard costs, not specifically how much came out of our pockets, just in case you were wondering. In other words, I haven't subtracted what our families helped us with. Thank you to my parents, devin's parents and my sister and brother-in-law. Could not have happened without you!
