Fall Picnic

Fall Picnic by Fat Bird Deisigns

Last night was the first event at our new park, it was a dinner for members of the Department of Natural Resources board.  Let me explain a little about this park it is a traditional state park but also houses the DNR headquarters. So this is “THE” Park in the state because the Director of all the State Parks is here and  a lot of  very important people in the world of parks come here. Last night was a pretty big deal for my husband, “the new guy”.  Part of being wife a park means you get volunteered (by your husband  mostly) to do things, somethings are more fun then others. Thankfully last nights was a lot of fun. I was asked to come up with inexpensive table decorations… oh and take pictures (thanks Hannah 😉 ).  The event was in an open air pavilion with activities out on the lawn like archery, corn hole, disk golf,  tree climbing and camp fire of course. I decided to go with something very outdoorsy and use at many natural elements as I could since we are on a state park after all.

For the guest tables I used mason jars wrapped in hemp twine with a leaf, acorn and candles, . These sat on a tree cookie surrounded by moss and pine cones and acorns

For the food table I did one large centerpiece made up of candles in terracotta pots with moss and pine cones surrounded by vines, leaves, berries and pumpkins.
