     Have a sign that says "Eat. Drink. Be Married" or "Eat, Pray, Love" by the food or refreshments.  And, yes, we love chalkboard everything! Make sure everyone keeps their glass, by making chalkboard mason jars and wine glasses.  Keep a cup of Chalk Ink handy for people to write their names (it's easier to use then regular chalk).  And with an outdoor party comes heat, so make sure to keep the bubbly cool with personal champagne bottles, and non-drip ice by using a colander over an ice bucket!

     For a 10 Year Anniversary, the traditional color is blue or "sapphire." So we put together some cute rustic decor ideas using navy.  Wrap twine around mason jars, and have a sign of the couples names and their wedding date!

     Check out these cute Anniversary banners from Etsy, here and here.
