Here at Ashery Lane Farm, you’re ready for your big day to start. How better than with a veritable truckload of flowers from Martha’s Gardens? Decorating a ’50s Chevy, the bounty runs the gamut from A (antique pink hydrangeas) to Z (zinnias, of course), with everything in between, including peach ranunculus, roses of all hues, dahlias and even fresh rosemary.

And this could be it: This mouthwatering spread from D’Amico Catering, featuring Italian meats and cheeses, nuts, grapes, berries and crusty loaves of bread, has a delicious hint of a picnic under the Tuscan sun.

Taking a natural approach, Apricot Floral Design mixes rudbeckia, celosia, scabiosa, dinner plate dahlias, cosmos, roses and ranunculus to achieve a delightfully casual air to fit your day in the country.
