    I am wondering where the bride found the cracker jack boxes? They would be perfect for my baby shower.
    Thanks,
    Sherry

    Nicole – I found the popcorn and peanut bags on bakeitpretty.com

    a family friend and I made the runners, and we were able to rent the full tableclothes.

    The wedding is great! I noticed that your knife and fork were something other than steel, they looked reallly great! What type of silverware is that and where did you get it? Also, what did you use for your plates? I plan on doing a backyard wedding and we want to save money on utensils and plates.

    janeen,
    we used wooden utensils, i got them here: http://www.ecowareproducts.com/
    the plates were provided by our caterer and i believe they were just heavy duty paper plates.
    we also used etch-it “keg” cups and they were a hit – people loved them and still talk about how fun they were. i’d definitely recommend them for a casual backyard wedding!
    happy planning :)
