The details here are so put-together and refined, from the matching checkered linens to the fresh red and blue color palette. Those chalkboard place mats are absolutely adorable!

    Such a cute theme. My wedding is on a farm and we're going for something similar. Who made the pennant table numbers? Thanks!

    I love it all!:) you are too clever! we are getting in 4 weeks, eek! where did you get the wine labels? or did you make them youself? have seen some on etsy but not as cute. thanks!:)

    janeen, we used wooden utensils, i got them here: the plates were provided by our caterer and i believe they were just heavy duty paper plates. we also used etch-it "keg" cups and they were a hit - people loved them and still talk about how fun they were. i'd definitely recommend them for a casual backyard wedding! happy planning :)

    The wedding is great! I noticed that your knife and fork were something other than steel, they looked reallly great! What type of silverware is that and where did you get it? Also, what did you use for your plates? I plan on doing a backyard wedding and we want to save money on utensils and plates.

  • Ashley on February 12, 2011

    Nicole - I found the popcorn and peanut bags on LOVE that place! and Kate - I found the b&w gingham here: a family friend and I made the runners, and we were able to rent the full tableclothes.
