Warm Hearts, Warm Drinks

If the air is going to be crisp in the evening, perhaps gathering around a campfire can be a focal point of your outdoor wedding and reception. Be sure to have some delicious hot toddys available and include non-alcoholic favorites like hot chocolate to keep family members cozy while you say “I Do” under the stars.

Creative Illumination

Table Decor has plenty of lighting options to pull together your nighttime garden theme. However, we absolutely adore it when we see the exciting DIY options that can be incorporated into a theme. For instance, you may want to have fun with your wedding party creating unique lighting for the head table. Here’s a cool idea that might strike your fancy.

Hard-shell gourds, sometimes called calabash gourds, are some of the world’s first cultivated plants. They are harvested from their vines in the fall and then air-dried for several months. When a gourd is fully dry inside and out, it forms a woody shell that can be cut with simple tools.

  • Cultures all over the world fashion hard-shell gourds into vessels or musical instruments. Here, we’ve turned them into festive outdoor lanterns, using a drill to create patterns for light to shine through. Hard-shell gourds develop a coating of dirt and mold as they dry out. You can buy them already cleaned, but you’ll save a lot of money by cleaning them yourself. Begin by soaking the gourd in a bucket of water for about 10 minutes. The gourd will want to float, so turn it occasionally to keep all sides wet.

  • Then, use a scrubbing sponge to remove the grime. It should rub off with medium pressure. If you find an area that’s difficult to scrub clean, try letting it soak a bit longer. If your gourd has a stem, you can scrub the grime from it as well. Allow the gourd to air-dry.

  • NOTE: The gourd will have some natural discoloration even after cleaning. Full details at Makezine
