Etsy Wedding: A Picnic of Prints

Memorial Day is coming up this weekend and that signals the unofficial kickoff of summer (even though I've been dreaming of summer here on Notable for a few weeks now!). There's nothing I think of more when it comes to Memorial Day than a great barbeque and down-home picnic and Etsy has all the supplies you'll need to turn one of these picnics into an adorable backyard wedding.

If you've been following for awhile, you'll know that mixing patterns will never go out of style in my mind and today's wedding inspiration is no exception! From the intricate weave of that picnic-turned-flower basket to the polka dot dress and floral print headband. I'd love to see flowers that look as if they'd just been picked from a field in a bouquet with a simple ribbon and this fork and knife print tie is just too good to pass up for a picnic affair!

Why not have a lunchtime reception and serve sandwiches in these canvas bags? If you're having a tent drape one of the garlands from yesterday's feature above the tables, and if not drape them over the table as a faux runner! They even have a subtle polka dot print! Cute little striped cupcake flags to top of dessert and fabulously fragrant soaps for favors! Create your own plaid (for table clothes, menus or even your guest book if you're creative!) with vibrant colored Japanese masking tape. Mix baskets and blue glass bottles for simple arrangements and finish off the tables with these perfectly-printed napkins!

Aspiring to Inspire,



  1. Love this, you've inspired me to plan a picnic for Dog!

  2. Thank you so much for including my Greeley Headband in your choices- this is definitely a wedding I'd be excited to attend or be in!
