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.

Amy, of Amy Daring Photography was so excited to share this ‘barn chic’ Real Southern Wedding with us! She had this to say about the couple:

“After lots of meetings, phone calls and the bridal portraits, April 16th came way too soon! The day started with brunch for the girls at the barn with mimosas and laughter. Brunch was immediately followed by a salon day for the girls and a relaxed day for the guys. Right before the bride and her maids arrived at the church for photos, it looked as if the bottom of the sky had fallen out! It rained for about half an hour and then we didn’t see a drop of rain after. The traditional ceremony was beautiful and went perfectly. The bride and groom rode to the reception site in a bright orange 1968 Camaro. Malphrus Plantation offered a beautiful backdrop for the remainder of the evening. Shoes were kicked off and the guests enjoyed gumbo and karaoke. Shelby and Darrell danced the night away.”

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.

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.

Peaches are grown all over the South and so many of us have memories of eating the yummy summer treat. What could be more natural than a wedding inspired by this simple beautiful fruit?

We would fill mason jars with locally in season flowers for a rustic and romantic look. For a signature drink we would serve Peach Collins to our guests as they entered the reception. We love this “You’re a Peach” poster from Etsy and think that it would make a great guest book and could be framed and displayed in the couples home.  These airy Laila mint chiffon rosette ruffles dresses would keep bridesmaids cool and looking chic. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake you could serve your guests these beautiful peach crostata with vanilla bean ice cream – Yum! Now we are hungry and must immediately find a roadside stand that sells this summer staple!
