We’re continuing all the gorgeousness from our cooking class yesterday with Jenni Kayne and Heirloom LA by sharing the design details we loved from the ladies at Bash, Please. Paige Appel & Kelly Harris of Bash, Please never fail to bring the surprise and delight to an event, while still keeping things feeling completely natural. Pair them with Jenni Kayne’s home aesthetic and you’ve got a design match made in heaven.

After watching the Heirloom LA team make our vegetarian meal, our Fourth of July gathering moved outside to pour Pressed Juicery sangria and enjoy all the dishes. Paige, Kelly and Jenni had set a long picnic table with modern Americana touches and MQuan’s cool ceramic bells swayed in the breeze. Just the vibe we’re looking for for the Fourth. Get all the details for your own celebrations below, then get drooling over the recipes for Green Goddess Burgers with carrot ketchup!

The Inspiration

Vintage meets modern picnic with a thread of Americana woven throughout. 

The Tables

Picnic tables were used to created a relaxed communal vibe, perfect for breaking bread and exchanging stories. The enamelware plates were reminiscent of childhood camping adventures.

The Florals

Florals were inspired by native plants and flowers from the Southern California coastline, designed by Holly Flora – arrangements of White Bearded Iris, white sweet peas, green dogwood, coastal grasses.

We incorporated some of Jenni’s vintage grain sack and chambray fabrics to achieve a look reflective of the West Coast’s casual spirit.

The Finishing Touches

We added in some more Americana with pottery. A blue and white salt and pepper vessel from Koromiko and porcelain thrown bells from Jenni’s store for a festive touch.

For place cards, we wrapped berry cartons in cheesecloth and adorned with a favorite ginger blueberry shortcake recipe.
The American flag picnic blanket was indigo dyed in our studio. The perfect spot for enjoying some of Heirloom’s summer treats!
