    This is so so pretty with peaches & ponies, butterflies & horseshoes & show ribbons that I almost cried. It is not easy to pull off rustic & sophisticated all at once. This does. Perfect!

    I was so happy to see this post, I'm having my reception at a horse stable next summer. I love the idea of placing individual flowers around the hanging chandeliers, and the black and white photos on the hay bales. So original and fresh!
