Here are some pics from our "buttercup and clover" summer wedding.

Our home-printed invitations were sent in petal envelopes from Paper Source.  Matching programs were printed on glossy paper.

Our "guestbook" was a bowl of gorgeous river rocks (from Target!) that our friends and family wrote love messages on with a silver Sharpie marker and then placed on a silver platter.

Our "placecards" were handmade pinwheels that were printed with each guest's name and placed in a "yard" of wheatgrass that we grew in our kitchen!  We hot-glued wooden picket fences around the yard and attached buttercup yellow bows.

Here's a closer view of a pinwheel:

Here's a closeup of the table name flag attached to the pinwheel:

Our cupcake stand was made of foam board, covered in clover cotton fabric and decorated with buttercup yellow grosgrain ribbon, which matched the colors of our bridesmaids' dresses.  We followed the instructions here.

Our favors were mini picnic baskets filled with candies, decorated with small squares of cotton gingham fabric, lovely green ribbon and home-printed "thank you" stickers.

Angelwing - that is really clever and thought out.  And beautiful.  I love these ideas.

And congrats to you and your groom - I wish you a lifetime of happiness!

The rocks are a great idea!  I want to know where you found the tiny picnic baskets.  Those would work great for my wedding in July of this year.

Thanks for the compliments, everyone!

My poor little adorable husband went to every Michaels and Ben Franklin in town to get about 100 of the 99-cent mini picnic baskets.  They usually come in different shapes - some were squares, some were ovals, some were circles.

I love it!  What a creative, wonderful wedding!  Did you have table centerpieces?  If so, what did they look like?  Smiley

Thanks for your sweet comments, everyone!

Because we went crafty on other things, we just kept the centerpieces simple.  Our florist did an arrangement of yellow and white daisies to mimic the bouquets, then put them in plain vases with lemons and limes in the bottom (which you can't see in this picture).  Then we put the table name cards in a silver placecard holder.
