Looking for something a little more fun and quirky to decorate with than traditional flowers? Ditch florals for fruits and vegetables, or pair farm-fresh produce with simple stems to create your perfect match. For a bold purple and lavender palette, feature vibrant eggplant varieties along your tables, or kick your summertime décor up a notch with potted lemon trees lining your outdoor ceremony and reception. There are so many ways to use nature’s delicacies in your décor. Here are a few of our favorite ways to bring the farm stand right to your table.

1. Begin your nature-inspired theme with the perfect set of invitations.
