The day after our wedding we are having close friends and family over for a BBQ.  Most of our guests are traveling and we wanted to provide them with lunch and some time to relax once they check out of the hotel and before they travel home.  It's also another excuse for me to do my favorite planning!  Here are some of the items that are inspiring me to create a wonderful afternoon for everyone.

Burlap Just Married Banner
Silverware holder ($24)
Chalkboard Pitcher ($18)
Fun Straws ($4 for 25)
Eco Friendly Plates (prices vary)
Condiment Holder ($38.99)

I want the house and backyard to have a warm and comfortable feel, but I want there to be little touches that people will remember.  I found these awesome eco-friendly plates that I want to get.  We usually use our glass dishes, but we don't have enough for the amount of people that we have invited.  It will also make for a much easier clean-up.  I make these chalkboard pitchers and I want to serve mint lemonade and iced tea in them.  I found these adorable straws on etsy and I am definitely going to get them, they will look beautiful on the bar (I plan on making a bloody mary bar too since I'm sure some people will be a little hung-over from the wedding!)  I love the idea of the 3 pots for displaying silverware in, but I plan on creating my own.  I can't create the little jars for ketchup, mustard, mayo, and relish, and I love this idea-it's so much cuter then putting all the bottles on the table.

I'm still trying to decide what to do for the menu.  Any fun ideas?
