From the team, “For bride’s and groom’s out there that love Coca Cola, we decided to create a beverage station table featuring Coke, Diet Coke, Cherry Coke, then pairing it with cherries, lemons and limes. To go with the picnic menu of salads and sandwiches, we thought it would be fun to pair them with Kettle Chips and Popcorn in a variety of flavors.”

All the vintage rentals provided by Found Vintage Rentals. Jeni at Found Rentals has the most amazing selection of vintage items to bring the perfect look for your wedding. :) And the pretty photos? They are by the lovely Krista Mason!

For the main tablescape, Found Rentals provided the picnic style table and chairs with a green and white gingham runner. The beautiful floral arrangements filled with billy balls, ranunculas, hydrangeas, roses were placed in vintage tins by Peony and Plum. The table number tag, created by Shannon Vetere and Calligraphy Katrina was attached to a bowling pin to tie our look together.

A game of croquet makes for the perfect afternoon reception idea :)

The type writer was a fun way for the guests to leave love notes for the bride + groom. The guests place them into our vintage mailbox and the notes were mailed to the couple after the wedding. From the vintage style basket weave to the vintage cake topper, our cake, by Fantasy Frosting was the perfect treat.

I hope these ideas provide some inspiration! Thanks so much to the team for sharing their ideas + talent with us today.
