What a great collaboration! Bluegrass Chic designed a reception table for a Southern tea and Two Sweets Bake Shop designed an accompanying bourbon bar-inspired dessert buffet.  So many elements enhanced the Southern equestrian style, including vintage china, lace details, an abundance of flowers, and (of course) a horse motif!  Thanks to Allan Jay Images for capturing the look so beautifully!

Our paper goods featured horseshoe and wildflower artwork to bring the South into our work. We used earth tones to keep the look classic, such as deep green, sage, burgundy and goldenrod. The menus were layered onto pale metallic gold stock and accented by an emblem with the couple’s monogram surrounded by a golden yellow horseshoe with burgundy flowers. We also made a sign to welcome guests to the celebration, which used the same artwork as the menu but included the written theme of the day: “Tea for Two, and Two for Tea.”

On the table, we carried the traditional Southern design elements to several accent pieces. Guests knew that they were in the correct seat by our unique place cards: teabag tags printed with their names! Also at each place setting was a favor of jarred lemon curd, for which we made circular tags with the wildflower artwork. For a fun touch, each guest also had access to a bell with our tag that read, “Ring for Kisses!” Both the favor tags and the bell tags were tied with a silky sage green ribbon to coordinate with the color palette.

The dessert buffet by Two Sweets Bake Shop featured our sign announcing that the buffet would open after brunch. This time, we chose to accent the sign with the couple’s full monogram flanked by wildflowers instead of using the horseshoe and single letter monogram. Be assured–the dessert table had plenty of horses! We created signage for each sweet treat that had sophisticated horse artwork at the top. Plus, the table was styled with horse statues and riding paraphernalia intermingled with the candy and cupcakes.

We loved creating this look with some of our favorite wedding professionals! Thank you all:

The dessert table is so inviting! Its multiple, cheerful treats were surrounded by bright floral and fruit. Two Sweets Bake Shop provided the various cookies and adorable cupcakes and Party Flavors Custom Cakes created the amazingly detailed cake. The citrus-colored cloth linens for the dessert table and cocktail station were supplied by Cloth Connection.

For the drink station, created by Two Sweets Bake Shop, we designed a custom sign for the signature drinks: mimosas and rum runners! The Florida citrus-themed bar also included orange liqueur, limoncello, small batch Florida rum, and (of course) fresh-squeezed local orange juice.

How gorgeous is this guest table? Oranges, lemons and limes were mixed into matching floral arrangements by Bluegrass Chic. Wildflower Linens supplied the bright white table cloth with floral cut-outs and custom leather chair back covers for A Chair Affair‘s white chiavari chairs. Our menu card was tied around the sunny yellow napkins, and our table card used a citrus-inspired name.

Custom wedding favor labels by Dogwood Blossom Stationery

Jars of orange marmalade served double duty as favors and escort cards, thanks to the labels we created. Each label paired a guest’s name with their table name and was adorned with the orange blossom image.

{Real Wedding} Toshia and Jason's Warm Winter Wedding

Rosen Shingle Creek, Rhodes Studios, Dogwood Blossom Stationery, Bouquet

Toshia and Jason’s wedding was inspired by the warmth that comes along with the chilly winter months. Anna Christine Events planned this Rosen Shingle Creek wedding; we love how this wedding was styled to reflect a “warm and cozy” winter rather than a winter wonderland filled with snowy crystal details. The interior of Rosen Shingle Creek almost felt like a wooden lodge! A special thanks goes to Rhodes Studios for the beautiful images.

The tablscapes featured warm candles, setting the mood for the evening. Our escort cards were designed with images of fun aspects of the wintertime, like mittens, moose, snowflakes, sleds, and hot cocoa. We also created a custom mad-lib on the back of the dinner menus for Toshia and Jason’s guests to fill out as a custom keepsake for the bride and groom. We also made custom signs for the newlyweds’ chair backs to let everyone know that they belong to each other!
