Picnic Nuptuals

We love original weddings! It's fun for us to pair menu items with the theme in addition to decorating the buffet. This picnic theme really worked for the bride and for the venue too; it was in a beautiful backyard in Highland.

On the menu were our signature pulled pork sliders with optional "angry onions"... potato bites with an herbed cheese spread...

I just love the signage we made for this wedding!

...handmade meatballs with three different sauces: lemon-thyme cream sauce, chimichurri, and a southwestern sauce...

It was fun for the guests to come back several times and try a different sauce with each visit!

...and we made a new appetizer, Italian bites with marinara dipping sauce.

These Italian bites are filled with melty mozzarella cheese.

For drinks we served our Brazillian Mojito in individual milk bottles. It fit so well with the Bride's theme!

 This was an interesting decorating task. Picnics are very causal: eating on blankets, serving drinks out of coolers, etc. However, weddings are on the opposite end of the spectrum. We decided to display the various finger foods on long buffet tables, and incorporated little picnic touches: daisies in mason jars, wooden crates, picnic basket, and burlap.

 Congratulations to the bride and groom! We sure loved being a part of your celebration.
