One of my favorite items in the A LA CRATE inventory is their rustic, multi-purpose wood stumps. At about 1.5 feet high and 1 foot in diameter, the obvious use is for a creative chair option at your next fall outdoor dinner party, or strewn around a backyard picnic with blankets and board games. But, there are actually a lot of other creative ways you can use the wood stumps that really struck my fancy.

A La Crate Vintage Rentals PBJ Bar

Welcome to part two of our how to throw your own backyard party ... hipster style. Last time, I featured the recipe for the main tabletop, this time I will give you the "ingredients" for our PBJ bar. Everybody loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, so they are a no-brainer for a casual, fun party. Throw in some fruit, chips, and your favorite pickled veggies and you have a great little outdoor picnic. Food aside, the next (and best) part is creating a beautiful table as a backdrop. Fortunately, A LA CRATE has you covered.

Hello everyone!  I can’t wait to share this post with you about an amazing photo shoot I did with Sarah and Jeff about a month ago to feature some of their amazing inventory.  First, and foremost, we wanted to show off their gorgeous hand-built harvest tables.  We tossed around a variety of ideas of how we wanted to present them to all of you and decided on a party (with a theme!).

One of my favorite things about blogging for A LA CRATE is doing research.  It is unbelievably fun to find so many cool ways to use something that had a totally different original purpose.  Not only does it get my creative juices flowing, it is also exciting to be promoting a reduce/re-use/recycle ethos!
