Today we are bringing you a very special two-day anniversary party from Calder Clark. Katherine and Rob wanted to celebrate ten very happy years of marriage by spending a weekend with their closest friends and family at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee. They welcomed guests with an elegant and relaxed dinner with rustic design details including pops of orange, cozy shawls draped over each guests chairs, darling menus on clipboards and our favorite – the cowbell table number of course!  Be sure to check back a little later today when we share part two of this lovely anniversary weekend!

Says Katherine, “our party started out as us trying to find a beautiful way to celebrate our ten year wedding anniversary. We had always talked about our wedding day, and how much fun we had, and how we loved having all of our friends and family around. And we thought that it would be great to do it all over again sometime.”

What a great idea is this hand-painted cowbell as a table number!

The charcoal of the splatter plates, linen napkins and pops of orange help to create the most perfect rustic atmosphere all while keeping the tone of the event relaxed, warm and fun.  Speaking of fun… Cheree Berry Paper designed these camping-style dinner menus placed on top of mini clip boards!

For their cocktail hour beside Blackberry Farm‘s beautiful lake, a mini Sperry tent was filled with rustic-yet-modern touches like cowhide cushions and modular seating, fitting the feel of the rest of the evening perfectly. And how darling are the couple’s initials inside a heart and arrow, cut into one of the logs?

The couple’s vision for the Friday night festivities? “Casual and fun. We wanted to reflect the Smokies and its incredible food culture”. Sounds like they did just that!
