I swear, next weekend I won’t be spending my Saturday night studying Pythagorean triplets. However, while this means no fun for me, it means a Weekend Edition for you, because I need a little break.

This is a special board, inspired by my time living in the Delta, and keeping in mind two teacher friends who will be tying the knot there come next spring. I imagine an event that is low key and very Delta, which means cotton bolls, sweet tea, barbecue, and some live blues music. I would use mason jars for centerpieces to echo the mason jar candles and the mason jar drinking “glasses.” I would also recommend a swamp cooler at the ceremony.

Mood: rustic, local charm
Palette: red, white

    Wow….spunky and whimsical! My in-laws did something similar for our Rehearsal Dinner a few years ago, but NOTHING like this. I only wish I had seen this inspiration board of yours sooner!Tam
