Yesterday was my sister in law, Brittany's, birthday. I always look at celebrations as a great opportunity to decorate and test out new ideas with my wedding rentals. Not to mention test my skills as I learn to be a photographer...(or just a picture taker).
We all enjoyed ourselves...especially Dad's A-mazing tri-tip steak which we used in french dip sandwiches. That plus ping pong, wine, mason jars, my mother's garden, a bondfire and pie? Makes for a good ol' fashion end of summer garden party. Yes please.
Setting the table using my vintage inspired wedding rentals. I experimented with bold and bright colors...as well as mixing textures.
Mom's garden is always lovely and vibrant.
All items pictured are available for rent through Jarfly! Excluding clear dinner plates, silverware and table cloths.
Used in this table design (see our rental section for availability):
1/2 Gallon Aqua Blue Mason Jars
Assorted Green Glassware
Amber Mini-Antique Bottles
Mini-Milk Glass Tea Cups
Burlap Table Runners
Amber Glass Drinking Goblets
We used orange rose buds as if they were floating candles in mason jars hung from small shepherd hooks. Used in this display:
Assorted Quart Clear Kerr and Ball Jars
Some antique detailing in my mom's garden.
Finding a way to add some fun color and texture to our clear dinner plates (dollar tree and garage sales). These crocheted coasters can be found at IKEA (and they are on sale!). The table cloth was also purchased at IKEA, although it's original purpose is was to be curtains. We like to re-purpose as much as possible around here!
