  • Invite guests to bring picnic blankets and pillows to lounge on the lawn and to drive their vintage vehicles -- Art Deco Society
  • Serve mint juleps, just like in the novel -- Rooster Talk
  • Hire a jazz band and designate an area as the dance floor by marking it off with hanging lights -- Photo by Michele Smith
  • Decorate food buffet tables with Queen Anne's Lace in green glass vases -- Little Somethings
  • I adore this green lace invitation by Vera Wang. It has such a lovely vintage feel --
