Super-fun theme, I’ve got a dash of that thrown in my wedding too! What about bunting flags as decor?? I think they totally have a hippie theme…Also, wildflowers, for sure…Maybe incorporate a bit of a paisley pattern for your invitations?

This is one of my favorite weddings, and the bride did ribbon streamer decorations everywhere instead of florals.  They had a bbq and the fashion and baby’s breath bouquet were amazing!



I can’t remember where I saved this picture from, but it has a lot of the style you were talking about.  I remember it was a smaller boat wedding and also looked really fun:



A few more good ones:

patchwork comes to mind for me with hippies…  i think table runners like the ones below would be wonderful with mason jars and wildflowers/daisies. (i added the invite just because i thought it was super cute!)

we’re having a more rustic themed wedding…  but i’ve always been a hippie girl at heart.  i’m going barefoot and wearing daisies in my hair.  =D  there is also an old vw bus near where we are getting married that has been abandoned in a field since i can remember…  we’re definitely taking photos there!

good luck!

There are some great inspiration photos out there. I think the one thing that will make it pretty obvious as to your ‘theme’ will be wearing a daisy wreath on your head…that screams 60’s to me. The fashion of that time was pretty awful, but I think you can have some fun scouting it out. Thrift stores will be your best bet unless you have some older family members who haven’t changed their style in many moons. 🙂 The only thing I still have is a peace sign necklace.

Ha Ha,  this is fun!  I grew up in the 60’s-70’s.  Did you see the striped paper straws, like they used to have??  If you have a flower girl, she should wear a maxi dress.  I saw some recently!  Maybe use some “protest style” signs for “Wedding”,  “Refreshments” oh, and what about incorporating some macrame or felt somehow, oh what about those italian wine bottles, with the crayon dripped wax over the glass for centerpieces?  It would be fun to have buttons with guests names/placecards.

What about Cheese Fondue and breadsticks for appetizers.

Are you wearing leather sandals or GoGo boots?  🙂

Here’s a 1969 recipe:

The oldeset recipe we have (in an American source) is dated 1969:

“Flower Pot Bread
2 cups milk
3 tbsp. sugar
3 tbsp. shortening
3 tsp. salt
1 cup lukewarm water
2 tsp. sugar
2 env. dry yeast
6 cups sifted flour
Melted shortening
Wash and thoroughly grease three red clay flowerpots 5-in. wide and 5-in. deep. Bake pots at 375 deg. 5 to 10 min. Repeat the process. Scald milk in saucpan. Remove from heat and add 3 tbsp. sugar, shortening and salt. Stir until shortening is melted, then cool to lukewarm. Combine lukewarm milk, then stir in 4 cups flour and beat well. Add remaining flour and mix well. This is a sticky dough. Turn dough into a greased bowl and brush top with melted shortening. Cover with waxed paper and towel and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 to 45 min. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly. Divide dough into three equal parts and place in well-greased flower pots. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk. Bake at 375 deg. 35 to 40 min. with a double thickness of foil on oven rack under pots. Serve in pots using real or fak flowers “growing” from them. Makes 3 loaves.”
—“Flower Pot Bread on Spring Menu,” Amy Vanderbilt, Los Angeles Times, May 29, 1969 (p. F8)
