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.

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.

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!
