Get ideas for your wedding reception decor with this rustic country themed table, designed by Kristy Rice of Momental Designs.
Inspired by the primitive elegance that's at the heart of every Andrew Wyeth painting, this collaboration of Pennsylvania creatives speaks of unfussy detail and inspired artistry. Local flavors, simple styling (easily executed from afar) and small but meaningful stationery details set a table perfectly suited for a lingering meal with loved ones.
Look to smaller local cafes for unique catering options. When menu planning, inquire about menu items for which their establishment is known, which is a great way to offer guests an authentic taste of the local fare.
The wedding favor, a Moravian tile flowerette, is presented on a hand-illustrated menu. The Moravian Pottery & Tile Works, a "working history" museum, is steeped in Pennsylvania tradition, and potters create from original molds that are more than a century old. Tip: Think small to make the return-home packing task easier for guests!
Infuse a wow statement of regional artistry into your head table by commissioning a local painter to create a table runner depicting the local landscape. The investment is well worth the forever keepsake that remains.
Have place cards designed with artwork only, so you can then hand-write each guest's name, along with a short message of thanks -- an incredibly personal touch for all those traveling the distance to celebrate.
Using fewer styles of paperie with more versatility can keep your budget in check. For example, have your stationer design versatile fold-over cards featuring meaningful artwork, a pattern or an illustration only. Then use these cards for welcome notes, thank-you's, itineraries and so on.** **
