Southern-wedding-mini-piessouthern weddings

I am in love with all of the mini food options out there...and pies are at the top of my list!

I am a hard-core cake fan but the comfort of a pie seems to make weddings even more personal. 

...and the varieties are endless!

Undeniable cute (especially with the flavor flags and fun shapes) and there are my new obsession. Just hoping I don't make the cupcakes too jealous?!?!

I'm not sure I have seen a mini-dessert represent my home state better...Pie on A Stick! I absolutely love this idea in SO many ways. Warm. Rustic. Homespun.

I'm a huge fan of Cocoa & Fig - and this one takes the cake...no the pie!

One of my favorite shops on Etsy...Barn Owl Primitives. The signs are adorable and the colors, sayings and distressing is perfect!

Any of these would be such a charming detail as a back drop to any a guest book or cake table!

Burlap = Rustic chic...instantly! I am over the moon about all the burlap potential and a wedding.

The texture and colors are amazing. It's versatile, accessible, can be DIY easy and it's reasonable. The perfect way to add a touch of country swank.

Just when I thought chevrons rocked my world...OMG...check out these charming burlap details!

 So, so, so cute...

If you are in the DIY mood, burlap can be found online for under 2 bucks a yard! And one of my favorite ways to add burlap is to use jute webbing. BurlapFabric.com is a great resource and hasa variety of colors available.

Otherwise, Etsy is your sure-fire place for burlap accents. Hands down it's a perfect option when creating bunting, runners and other rustic accents (and easier to handle!) for any celebration!

Horses and I go together like coffee and cream...and with the rustic barn wedding craze, I simply cannot get enough!

I literally SWOON at all of the stunning images of horses and weddings. With brides. With grooms. With couples. Even with a Prince and his Princess. Honestly picture perfect.

Even if you aren't ga-ga for equestrian, you can't deny the natural beauty and inspiration in horses and weddings...

After making my strawberry picking debut this summer at my favorite local farm...(check out my loot!)

IMG 1881 800x533 IMG 1867 533x800 IMG 1886 495x800

I was totally inspired by these colorful (and tasty!) berries. The possibilities for such sweet accents are endless! But I would definitely say less is more with this one...the word accent is key.

Here are some of my most favorite ways to add a splash of strawberry...all are perfect for a shower - or a farm or garden wedding. Swoon.

Nothing says summer like strawberries...so go find a local farm (or farmer's market) and pick while the pickin's good!
