Inspiration: Backyard Fete

6 Nov

This board is more about the feel of a wedding rather than a specific theme or color scheme. To me, the cutest weddings are the DIY backyard ones. If you have parents, family or friends with a big back yard, hit them up! If you cut out the cost of a venue it saves so much. I love the serve yourself bar with pre-made cocktails and what about a gourmet finger food buffet with mini burgers and rosemary garlic fries?! Set up fun games on the lawn like croquet, corn hole and bocci ball. Simple homemade centerpieces with fresh flowers from the farmers market in mismatched vases you can collect from second-hand stores over time would be great. And get friends and family to help you with a dessert buffet. Drum up a little friendly competition so they bring their “A” game and offer a prize for the best dessert. String up some cafe lights and some hanging lanterns in the trees – it will look so pretty at dusk. You don’t have to spend a lot to have a beautiful wedding. In fact a wedding like this will probably be more memorable for your guests. Even celebs like Ellen Degeneres & Portia De Rossi and Rebecca Romijn are having backyard weddings these days. I’m hopping on the backyard bandwagon because I love it, so please do invite me 🙂
