The couple made the programs and included an H at the top. They printed them on white paper with a black damask border on one side and tied them with black ribbon.

Two antique gold urns on the head table held blooms to match Jill’s bouquet: dahlias, scabiosa pods, and bupleurums, plus artichokes for their unexpected texture.

The same mini chairs that held the escort cards held the table numbers, which were printed on white cards with intricate scroll borders. Each table number was surrounded by three mini urns, each holding one dahlia flower.

So guests could move around, the couple served cupcakes for them to eat on the go. The cutest part: The cupcakes were decorated with sugar flowers or an icing letter H.
