Your reception can be outdoors, since it is a picnic, and there’s no need to get fancy. Mismatched tables and chairs, as well as picnic tables will serve your guests well. To tie them together, get inexpensive matching tablecloths and napkins. Red-checkered cloths are perfect for a picnic theme and they give the reception a country, intimate feeling.

Cherry Pies in a Jar
