The Not Wedding was packed with ideas, so we’ve highlighted a few of our favorite take-aways to inspire your big day (or your next dinner party!) photographed by Declare Photography.
There’s something so fresh and unexpected about a messy bundle of wildflowers. This bouquet was created by Soul Flowers (and how fitting is that name for a spirited arrangement like this?!) You have to check out Soul Flowers pretty site!
When it comes to desserts, we’ve all seen the cupcake, the macaroon, and the whoopie pie phases come and go, but Dale’s brings something all their own to the table-fried pies! They even have a seafoam and coral “mobile pie stand” to boot! Imagine a perfect little golden pie in hand, oozing with “ginger pear” or “candied sweet potato” or “the elvis- PB, banana, and bacon.”
At each place setting, we loved the fabric-wrapped utensils paired with polka dot napkins (inside scoop: the adorable matching runner is on sale here!) Let’s be honest, this project isn’t going to happen on utensils at a 300 person sit-down dinner, but what a sweet, homespun touch for a wedding shower (or baby shower!)
We love the idea of using a mini easel to display table numbers – how adorable is that?! The simple watercolored numbers would be super easy to project to conquer in an hour and would add a delicate touch to the tablescape. We love this idea from Stockroom Vintage.
Floral crowns are everywhere these days, but we just can’t quite seem to get enough! The crowns have such a whimsical and relaxed spirit about them. We picture it hanging on the post of a bed after the party’s close!
Food cards are a way to bring pretty paper products to your buffet. We love that you can coordinate the design to mimic your wedding invite. Request something similar for your wedding suite here!
Keep an eye out next week for a second post with more party ideas inspired by this event!

The Not Wedding is sort of what it sounds like- a big party (thrown by artists and wedding professionals) that’s not really a wedding! This show travels around hunting for each cities’ creative wedding vendors…and we got to play a part! Invitations, programs, menus, and food labels were all created by Emily O. Holmes Custom Paper Lovelies to match this “Wild & Free” themed celebration.
Follow this series of posts detailing our experience at this super inspiring event!
The party was hosted at One at Cannery Row…a dreamy venue!
Delicate floral illustrations were sprinkled throughout this set of wedding paper products!
The menus highlighted sweet little love quotes from Pablo Picasso and a verse from Song of Solomon.
Food labels are a great way to tie in personalized paper products that coordinate with your invite!
Mailing “save the dates” (or other invites!) as postcards adds a charming, old-school touch to your event.
We adored this white calligraphy on kraft paper envelopes by Ginger English.
Find more photos of my work and the Not Wedding on Ruffled, Ashley’s Bride Guide, and (our favorite!) Grey Likes Weddings.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for our favorite take-aways from this event that you can include at your next party! Floral crowns, bowties, gold trophy cups…We can barely wait to show you!
And a big thanks to the photographers for their beautiful work at the event! (Photos 1-3 courtesy of Declare Photography & photos 4-12 courtesy of I Love You Too Wedding Photography.)
