Let's Eat!

My future mother-in-law (MIL) and I have been working together to decide on some great, cost-effiecient ideas to use at the rehearsal dinner.

Here's our ideas of inspiration...

While my colors are green, cream, and brown for the wedding, I wanted to change things up just a little bit for the rehearsal dinner. Plus, it would make it much easier to incorporate various shades of blue, so we could use her blue hydrangeas from her yard.

The great thing about this is that Dot and I have made grape vine wreaths from the vines behind mine and Colby's future house.
Simple. Easy. DIY.

We won't be having cloth napkins,  but the ribbon is a nice touch to dress things up a little bit.

BBQ is being served at the rehearsal dinner, so I wanted 1" navy gingham fabric to drape over the floor length white table cloths.

 The Menu:
Shredded Pork with BBQ Sauce
Chicken Strips
Cole Slaw
Potato Salad
Dinner Rolls
Various Flavors of Cheesecake

***I'm leaving out something from the menu. I just know it.

  1. It all looks great! I think she is planning to serve green beans, baked beans, and cup cakes too. I'm hungry for it now. :) I had fun at the beach. Miss y'all already.
