Wedding Reception Centerpiece ideas

This post is sponsored by As always, all opinions are my own.

Good morning! I don’t know if I have officially announced it here on the blog yet. Buuuut if not, here we go! ha! :) My oldest son is getting married! Eek! Crazy, I know! How is he that old? Annnd how am I that old? ;) He will be getting married in Utah in just a few weeks. Next month, we will be having an open house at our house to celebrate. So, I have been busy getting everything ready for that. I want to keep it sweet & simple. We are going with a farmhouse picnic theme complete with BBQ, candles, patio lights, outdoor games, buffalo check tablecloths, farmhouse metal chairs & of course, using lots of pictures in the decorating. I love decorating with pictures in my home, & a wedding reception is also the perfect place to display photos of the happy couple. So, today I’d love to share some wedding reception centerpiece ideas featuring MIXPIX Photo Tiles from I would love to get your thoughts! Let’s get started. :)

Prayer Rock {tutorial}

Good morning! It’s time for another addition of Craft Lightning! You know those fun & easy crafts that can be completed in 15 minutes or less! This month’s theme is painted rocks. You can find a super fun painted rock book over on Amazon right now from one of our fellow bloggers. Check that out here. :) When I first heard this theme….the first idea that popped in my head was a prayer rock! My daughter & I have been working on some Personal Progress goals for our young women program at church. Annnnnd one of the goals we are working on is to remember to say our morning & evening prayers. A prayer rock comes in super handy for that! ;) I’m also sharing a cute poem to go along with it. So, let’s get started!

Good morning! Recently I was called as the 2nd counselor in the Young Women’s program (the girls age 11-18) at church. So, you might see a lot more young women inspired crafts now on the blog. ha! ;) Anyways, it’s been a lot of fun. I work mostly with the younger girls ages 11-13, and they are fabulous! One of them is my amazing daughter! :) I love spending time with them. Recently at our Personal Progress night we were talking about why we work on our personal progress goals & why we say the YW theme each week. It all leads us to the temple. So, I made these cute DIY temple necklaces that they could wear to remind them of their goal to go to the temple.
