Decorating for a Crawfish Boil

Over the weekend we had a crawfish boil for my parents' 25th wedding anniversary. This was that first time we had ever bought or cooked crawfish at our house. So much fun! This post is about the decorating I did for the boil. Minimal was key, because crawfish can get messy and it has been raining for what seems like 40 days and 40 nights. I thought we were going to be able to set up the tables outside, but then the rain started around 4pm and we decided just to bring all of the tables in and set up in our house. So Ben and his brother, Bill, moved all of the furniture out of a room and we piled in the tables.

I bought blue and white gingham table clothes from Garden Ridge. These were bright and cheerful and a good color to use.

The center pieces for the table were large mason jars filled half way with dried black-eyed peas. I tied some raffia around the top and put 1-3 large sunflowers in each one.
