We love a perfectly coordinated welcome bag! It sets the tone for the entire wedding weekend and is a fun treat for guests upon arrival. But we know it can be a headache for a lot of couples—one more detail to think through after already making so many logistical and décor decisions. Fortunately, we’re here to help! We’ve crafted three wedding gifts perfect for an Eastern Shore wedding (as featured on My Eastern Shore Wedding). Whether you want to keep it simple with snacks, crab mallets and Rise Up Coffee in a cute canvas bag, or up your game with champagne, custom oyster knives and fresh blueberries in a wire basket that gives off all the water vibes—we’ve got you covered! Happy gifting!

Layered Spring Tablescape

We’re channeling all the spring vibes with this fun tablescape perfect for indoor or outdoor entertaining this season! Being on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, we love a place setting that’s relaxed enough for outdoor entertainment but still delivers a punch. Enter these dusty blue plates and two-toned flatware from White Glove Rentals. We layered our focal elements with varying textures, including a water hyacinth placemat from Ikea, classic summer striped table runners from World Market (which we laid width-wise for some added intrigue), linen napkins with a knotted tie, and a modern meets casual vellum + white wood menu. Tying everything together were whitewash sandwich board place cards and the most gorgeous spring arraignments we’ve ever seen from Blossom + Vine! We hope this inspires your next gathering!

Another holiday, another themed bar! This time, we’re sticking with a tried and true favorite: the martini bar. It’s classic, simple and always a crowd pleaser! Stock some vodka and gin, add in the mixers—we offered vermouth, olive juice and Lillet—finish with some garnish, and voila! We loved designing this bar with a modern black, white and gold look—highlighted by a custom Martini Bar sign from Surcee Calligraphy and fun black and gold accents like the Crate & Barrel cocktail shaker and McGee & Co. geometric objects. Cheers!
