i wanted to add a vintage feel to the party. so i found some vintage glasses, and old vintage picnic basket {that i used for the flower arrangement}, a vintage fishing net, vintage fishing lures, vintage dishes, vintage fishing creels, vintage lanterns, a vintage vase, vintage canning jars, a vintage owl..and more.
oh, and i bought some authentic fish fossils off ebay that i used as little coasters....

You just brought tears to my eyes! My father just passed away 2 months ago and he was a huge lover of fishing and the outdoors. And his favorite sweet treat was pecan pie. This would have been "his" perfect day! thank you, I needed that!

The dessert table was so creative. Just find things around the yard (if you happen to live in a yard like that). And I love the mountains!
