Does the image of an intimate backyard dinner with string lights, garden style centerpieces, good food and great conversation make you smile? Us too!
We are giving you tons of ideas to bring that elegant but laid back backyard dinner party vibe to your wedding.
Bring on the String Lights
You can't beat the warmth and atmosphere that string lights bring to an evening party. They provide just enough glow as the evening begins and create a canopy overhead.

Add a Lounge Area
Bring the comforts of home outside with some soft seating for your guests. Add a couple sofas and chairs, a rug and a few side tables to hold their drinks. Perfect for cocktail hour and for guests to rest their feet from dancing.
Think More when it comes to Dessert
Choose a few different desserts instead of one traditional tiered cake. Add a mix of cakes, pies, cookies - whatever your heart desires! Your guests will love the selection.
Add Color and Pattern to Tables
Consider unique table linens for cocktail tables, guest book table, etc. It will add a pop of color and elegance to the display.

Drape Some Greenery
Add greenery to porch posts or walls behind a head table. This will continue the greenery of the landscape on the built elements.

Lawn Games are always Great
Whether is Giant Jenga, Cornhole, ring toss or more. This keeps your guests entertained and adds to the fun.

Small Details Make a Big Impact
Think place settings, garden inspired centerpieces, and more. Great table scapes encourage your guests to linger and enjoy conversation.
Add Comforts of Home
Blankets for chilly evenings or paper fans for warm days will help your guests enjoy the weather outside.
Serve Seasonal Fare
Think home grown and farm to table with appetizers, cocktails and more. Early spring? Consider strawberries in a salad. Moving into summer think blueberry lemonade or berry gazpacho. Fall is a great time for sweet potatoes and apples.

Our dream and journey began in our engagement and marriage and allows us to celebrate weddings with couples and families. We are learning much about farming and weddings, and my goal is to share as much as I can with you!
