We had so much fun discovering the table number ideas yesterday that we continued our search today.  Here are a few more ideas.

These burlap table numbers are great for so many reasons but mainly because they are very environmentally friendly.  You can use potted plants that can be replanted afterwards, and the burlap bags can also be repurposed to hold and organize household items.

These fans could be made in any color and would look great in a variety of different types of venues.

These moss covered numbers are so cool and would be great for a rustic or country wedding reception.

And finally these wooden table numbers are unique in their size and shape considering their material.  We think they almost look shabby chic.

Obviously – we love creative ideas.  Table numbers and or names can be a great way to express yourself and continue the theme of your wedding.  We thought the following ideas were original and fun.


These bottles of wine used as table numbers are not only clever but functional.

For a nautical or beach themed wedding these sailboats totally upgrade the tablescape.

These books were made into table numbers simply by screwing exterior house numbers onto the cover of books.

We adore these cowboy hats that not only work as table numbers but could do double duty as favors as well!

Picnics mean gingham, over sized bright stripes, umbrellas, and vintage style blankets and quilts.  We were excited to work these ideas into a few wedding inspiration boards.

This actual picnic wedding was on the Ruffled Blog.  How simple and charming is the basket full of blankets?

We would have to include picnic tables somewhere.  We love these with the simple white lanterns.  An idea for food would be to create a boxed lunch station where guests will have choices. Pink gingham is an alternative to classic red picnic gingham.  We would mix and match the gingham with over sized pink stripes like those on this umbrella.

Picnics don’t have to be bland.  Check out the picnic vignette above with all of the bright colors.  A picnic drink station would not be complete without quilts.  We would include the fun striped paper straws with gingham flags.

What: Palmetto Bluff

Who: Couples who want to get married at a luxury resort and inn with a rich history and an unparalleled beautiful natural setting.

When: Due to the temperate climate, Palmetto Bluff is ideal for weddings throughout the year.  Indoor venues will keep guests cool in summer and warm in the winter while outside areas have cool coastal breezes and outdoor fire pits to provide comfort.

Where: Palmetto Bluff is located in Bluffton, SC along the beautiful May River in the heart of the South Carolina Lowcountry.

Why: Palmetto Bluff is not just a place – it’s a mindset.  Things slow down here and details like gas lanterns, historic ruins and classic Lowcountry architecture reinforce this.  As soon as you enter the gates you will likely be overwhelmed by the Spanish moss-laden oaks trees and lush natural beauty.  Much of Palmetto Bluff is protected from any future development as a part of their environmental preservation efforts. There are 50 guest cottages each with pine floors, high vaulted ceilings and screened porches. Your guests will not get the chance to be bored after taking advantage of the spa, fishing, boating, kayaking, tennis, golf and more! The jewel of the resort is the intimate Waterside Chapel located on the banks of the May River. After wedding here couples have their choice of several locations both indoor and outdoor within the resort to have their reception. Whether enjoying cocktails on the River House veranda (and what’s more Southern than a veranda?) or sipping wine around the May River Lawn fire pits, Palmetto Bluff will not disappoint.  For more information contact Palmetto Bluff Resort.

Sometimes you really don’t know what’s out there until you take a good look.  This was definitely one of those times when we were inspired by a random idea and a quick search of the internet resulted in an unbelievable amount of data. Honestly, how much deer-inspired wedding materials can there be out there?  Well there was definitely more than we thought.  It all started with the invitation suite we found below on the Wedding Chicks blog.

With a few changes in color scheme we created a theme all our own. We hope you like it – we had a lot of fun with this one!

These ‘love deer’ invitations are woodland but chic and modern (we didn’t think it was possible either) and how perfect are these, “Thanks, Deer,” cards for thank you notes?    Dancing Deer makes a variety of other baked goods and it was hard for us to decide but for favors we would give Dancing Deer Bakery Old Fashioned Buttermilk Pancake and Waffle Mix – YUM!

This antler taper holder would look great nestled in with this rustic grouping of jars wrapped with twine and the tree ring table number. We couldn’t resist including this wooden doe and deer cake topper.

We would use the tree and deer decal above for the background of a photo booth wall.  If we had a dessert table we would try to incorporate these Spode woodland deer serving pieces. Check out this awesome tablescape with actual antlers incorporated into the centerpieces.

Celebrity Sidenote: Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton were wed under a floral adorned arch of antlers.

Today there are more takes on the ‘His & Hers’ gift them than ever.  Many of the gifts are still corny but there are also those that are far beyond and can actually be useful, before, during and even long after the wedding.

Probably the trend that started it all were the ‘His & Hers’ pillowcases. We think this embroidered and hemstitched pair are lovely and look heirloom quality.

These hooks from Pottery Barn are chic and functional.

These kate spade new york ‘two of a kind’ glasses could be as useful for cocktails as they would be for morning juice.

For the ice cream loving pair these stamped spoons would be the perfect gift.
These ‘His, Hers & Yours’ trays would be perfect for keys next to the door.

How fun are these non-traditional ‘His & Hers’ toasting flutes? We found these and a few more whimsical drink ware gift ideas on Etsy.

And for the couple who plans on designating who gets what first bite of cake we suggest purchasing these forks.

How often the ‘I’ of Roy G. Biv goes ignored.  Today we choose to give him his day in the sun! Indigo is not only a beautiful color but has been grown as a crop in the Southeastern United States since colonial times.

We think blueberries are more indigo than actually blue and we think they look great simply placed atop this classic white cake.  The blueberry mojito not only keeps the color scheme going but sounds absolutely delicious! The indigo escort cards mixed with other shades of blue is fun and aesthetically pleasing.  This Jenny Yoo bridesmaids dress is stunning and would look so sharp next to this navy suit and the orange tie adds such a great pop of color!

Indigo invitations looks stunning with addresses written in white ink calligraphy. Indigo accents and floral designs on these imitation Ming plates and bud vases would look fabulous when placed on tables and mixed with these navy bud vases as well. A bride and her maids would look stunning with  these Max and Chloe earrings and guests can keep cool with these indigo fans that could even be personalized.

Why is there something so charming about a bride in cowboy boots?

Maybe its because boots are an item that many brides have worn (sometimes for years) before slipping them on for their special day? Maybe its the contrast of pretty white daintiness against rustic functionality? Whatever it is – we love it!

This is just perfect.  We love the pleating around the hem of this dress too!

A man and her boots – what more could a girl want?

Now tell us this bride doesn’t look relaxed?

We love this ‘pop of color’ that the red adds.

We love love love how the whole bridal party was included in the boot trend.

And everyone knows boots are excellent for dancing!

And the bride above, who grew up on a ranch, got personal with a pair of boots with her wedding date and new monogram!
