Today marks the start of the 2011 Collegiate football season. As many grooms choose to have a groom’s cake that represents their school spirit,  we gathered up some of our favorite college renditions. Grab a fork and a foam finger – it’s gonna be a great year!

The title of this posts says it all. Today we are inspired by Spanish moss and oak trees. Two Southern landscape staples that stretch from Texas all the way to the coasts of the Carolinas.

The wood grain band on these oak motif invitations adds texture and enhances the ‘carved initials’ image. These tags also bear the oak tree motif and an antiqued look.

This oak draped mantle is so simply elegant. Spanish moss can be tucked into all areas of your decor including around centerpieces or food displays like this candy bar. Or you could place your cake, desserts or other food on these trunk pedestals and tuck moss around the bases. If your budget permits you must serve Silver Oak wine (it is divine).

This is a beautiful example of Spanish moss tucked around centerpieces. The Spanish draped arbor creates a beautiful ceremony setting. The light fixture hanging from the tree in this cozy seating area is so chic.

It would be easy as pie to make these string light filled mason jars.

Speaking of string lights, how gorgeous is this light lined tree at night? You could also opt to hang lanterns instead or as well!

Important to Know: Do not touch or take live Spanish moss off of trees. Even though it is gray – it is still living and is host to many little critters (chiggers/red bugs) that will make you wish you never touched the stuff. You can purchase Spanish moss for decorating at most craft stores very inexpensively. This Spanish moss will be very dry so make sure you use it carefully around anything that is flammable.
