Serving Food At Your Picnic Wedding

So you've decided to have a picnic wedding, some fancy sandwiches, salads, side dishes, but how are you going to serve your food?  One way is to pre-pack lunch bags like the one above.  These make it easy to transport food and give your guests a eco-friendly wedding favor. 

Some DIY experts could make their own patterns, but those of us with less expertise will love the directions and pattern available at Haberman Fabric's web site. Yet another easy DIY project brought to you by The Wedding Queen's DIY Weddings blog.

High Heel Disaster Diverted!

If you're planning on having an outdoor ceremony or reception, or are even taking photos on the lawn, consider puchasing a pair of Clean Heels Heel Stoppers to protect your shoes from the inevitable sinking into the ground that happens when you wear a pair of high heels on the grass. 

These plastic heel protectors, some with a little bling added, not only protect your heels from dirt but keep them from sinking into the park lawn or the golf course where you are having you photos taken.  Thanks to Belle Divine brides no longer have to worry about sinking in the dirt!

Not Into Candy Buffets? Try This

Esther Kim -- My Bride Story had this fabulous idea for a fruit and veggie bar. I love the idea of a healthy alternative to a candy bar and the bright colors really draw the eye.

Add dips and smoothies to add more texture to the display. If you MUST have sweets add some chocolate to dip your fruit into. Photo Credits: Serena Grace.

Watermelon With A Twist

Thanks to Carl Dean Hedin with Abigail Kirsch for sharing these.

If you're having an outdoor wedding serve these refreshing watermelon appetizers by Abigail Kirsch.  They are cubes of watermelon, topped with a dollop of balsamic syrup, sea salt, and a small topping of whipped cream Gorgonzola.  My mouth is watering as I type this!
