Then I went to the Dollar Store and found these awesome popcorn buckets (see picture below) to use for the centerpieces at the rehearsal dinner. My future mother in law and I are going to fill them with typical ball park snacks like peanuts, cracker jacks, sunflower seeds, candy and all that kind of stuff. I think they will look really cute.
Here are some pictures of where the rehearsal dinner is actually going to be. Its the restaurant at the ball park in my hometown. Our color scheme is going to be red, white, and blue. I found some adorable grosgrain ribbon in those colors to use for tying the silverware. As far as other decorations - I wasn't sure what else we could do.
I know you all are familiar with Snippet and Ink. Well I just have to say that Kathryn is so incredibly kind. I sent her an email asking for any inspiration tips and she sent me the nicest email back the very next day! First, I always have a ton of respect for people who have famous blogs that actually answer their email. Its so nice and you know they get a ton of mail. Second, she gave me a lot of useful information.
Anyways she suggested maybe using navy and red gingham as table runners with white tableclothes. My mother in law also thought maybe red and navy polka dot fabric would be cute - I totally agree. So I am going to see what we can find at a fabric store.
I think we should just use red, white, and blue balloons thoughout the room. I think its classic Americana and its fitting for a night at the ballpark. I will keep you posted on other details as they come in but I just wanted to share this because I am so excited!
