No travel? No problem! Bring Italy to your own backyard!

Feyi Bello / Monday August 2, 2021
With restricted travels and social distancing STILL being the order of the day *rolls eyes* we can always count on our friends to inspire new ways to celebrate!
Today Jacquelyn Kazas of Beijos Events takes us through this deliciously fun Italian-themed rustic backyard pizza party shoot that she planned with Sabrina of Golden Arrow Events! 
Jacquelyn: It’s all about al fresco gatherings so we decided to bring Italia into our own backyard!  If you’re dreaming of a trip to Italy then this one is for you!  Sabrina of Golden Arrow Events and I love to travel, so we decided to take our love for it and share it with you all.  We used all the inspiration of Tuscany from the decor to the food for this one!  Let us transport you to the land of pizza and wine!
Starting with our beautiful setting at our friend Marnie’s lovely home. She is also the owner of Sweet Salvage Rentals.  She hosted us in her backyard and provided all of the beautiful vintage rentals.  Sabrina and I set the table with Hostess Haven’s beautiful tabletop pieces using rich colors of olive green and amber.  I especially loved the rustic wood flatware we chose.  Golden Sol Florals did an amazing job of bringing gorgeous florals and tons of produce as well!  Adding tomatoes, artichokes, lemons, and other seasonal veggies and fruits really added character to this table and brought the taste of Italy right here to California!

Our invitations, place cards, and signage were all done by the talented Kaylyn of Pirouette Paper.  Her invitation suite is one Italian wedding dreams are made of!!  I loved her attention to detail and that stunning watercolor touch that you see throughout the signage as well.  And I personally can’t get enough of the wax seal on place cards.
