First, our programs were mini scrolls tied with an espresso, pool or green ribbon and all sat in an espresso and pool basket.
I wrapped a watercolor book with espresso fabric, then designed a cover slot that showed our names and our wedding date. This was lined with a ribbon that had an espresso, pool and green design on it.
The table name cards were designed to encourage movement. Each table was named after something that resembled us either as a couple or individually, and the story behind each name.
For the escort cards, we put tree branches in pots and hung the tags from the branches. Each card was hand stamped with a design in brown ink.
There was a table diagram on the escort tree table that showed the layout of the reception area as well as each table name/number so that guests would easily find their seats.
The dinner menu listed the buffet selections as well as a diagram for our wedding cake for dessert (yes, that is my husband and I smiling for the camera!).
We had a snack buffet for our favors. I decorated small Chinese take-out containers with our wedding logo and a green or pool ribbon. The items on our buffet were brown, blue or green to carry out our color scheme.
