How on earth has it been so long since I posted an inspiration board?! Sometimes they’re just harder to pull together than at other times. For this one, all of these gorgeous tomato photos kept popping up in my reader and on Pinterest, like they were begging me to turn it all into a wedding idea, so here you go. It seemed like the perfect thing for the dog days of summer, with tomatoes at their peak. It’s also a perfectly simple, budget friendly theme for a wedding. Crates or bowls or (in this case) colanders full of various tomatoes serve both as centerpieces, as well as take aways for your guests. Tomato jam is also a yummy favor.¬†Vintage labels and seed packets and stamps embellish invitations and details. Kraft paper makes for an unexpected table runner. All in all, there’s nothing fussy about this wedding idea, and it’s easily diy-able. And of course you’d have to feed your guests some tomato-laden dishes.

For more tomato inspiration, take a look at Martha Stewart‘s tomato tasting party.
