Wren Bistro Bar & Market

February 18, 2011

Last week we caught lunch at a cute bistro in downtown Beaufort, SC.  Wren Bistro &  Bar is located 2 streets from the Beaufort waterway on Cateret Street. We had both a delightful (& productive!) lunch- but honestly, you would have thought we had never eaten out before. We could barely stop oooohing & ahhhhing enough to get our sandwich & salad down. We were so impressed & inspired by the ambiance & decor of this eatery that we just had to share!

Wren has exposed brick walls & they have jute rugs hung from the rafters to mimic the look of curtains. There were long linen booths along both walls with glass pendants hung from above & french bistro inspired weathered wooden chairs. It was just as cute as could be. Understated- yet simple southern style.

They even had a simple arrangement consisting nothing more than sand, rocks, moss, oyster shells, bark & a palm frond- a total inspiration for a Spring bride!


Starting Spring Off Right

February 16, 2011

We are so excited to kick off the Spring season outdoors with a fun rehearsal dinner at Lowndes Grove Plantation!Picture this: we start the evening off with field games- Croquet, Bocce, & Horseshoes.


Before you know it, its a starry night next to the Ashley River. Glowing lanterns hanging from the oak trees & warm fire pits softly light the area. Can you say romantic?

Scattered bales of hay will be lined in plaid & burlap fabric for a natural touch.

Guests will be mingling and noshing on blueberry pie at long wooden farm tables with runners in the hunter green plaid.

If you can’t picture it yet, maybe looking at the layout will help:

I know, I know… you wish you were invited. But hey! that’s what we’re here for. Your rehearsal dinner can be just as fun and amazing.
