This spectacular event took place on the beautiful Gillett Bridge overlooking the Grand River in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. Our client wanted an upscale French picnic look for their guests to enjoy, so we paired royal blue and white striped linens with rich mahogany wood tables, lush boxwood accents, and fresh white floral designs with natural green touches. The long tent featured oatmeal khaki fabric draping with twinkling bubble lights, and a massive 24ft long mahogany and boxwood bar at the center of the bridge. One of our absolute favorite details was the adorable picnic baskets with comfy throw blankets, and an assortment of local cheeses, breads, jams, and beverages for guests to take and enjoy on the sprawling lawn along the river, in front of the Gerald R. Ford Museum.
