It’s no secret that here at Brolly Bucket we LOVE an outdoor wedding, whether it’s in a tipi, a tent, a marquee in a farmer’s field or a barnyard bash. We’re all about you having your day, your way - which, for most of us, includes not having to worry about the rain. Hence our range of beautiful brollies - the clue’s in the name, I guess!
But did you know that you can also hire out blankets to keep your guests cosy into the evening reception? No? Well, allow us to introduce you to our collection of simple but stylish cotton hay bale blankets and soft patterned throws.
Hay Bale Blankets
Hay bales are a popular option for reception seating areas as they’re fairly inexpensive, comfortable, reusable (they can go straight back to the farmer afterwards to be used for feed, or bedding if they’re straw bales) and decorative - especially when topped with a pretty cover or blanket. In fact, why stop at the seating? You can also use hay bales to prop up photographs or flower arrangements, present trays of canapes, top with pallets to make a rustic bar - the only limit is your imagination!
Whatever your theme or styling inspiration - a homespun farm wedding, a rustic barnyard affair or a luxe tipi tent celebration drowning in fairylights and firepits - hay bales can provide the perfect finishing touch. Clustered together, you can create intimate seating areas for late-night chat and chillout time and they’re as decorative as they are functional; even more so when topped with our hay bale blankets in a stunning neutral palette of grey, cream and charcoal. Utterly understated and utterly gorgeous - plus, they’re available singly or in sets of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 so you have complete flexibility and can tailor your order to your wedding.
And for the proverbial cherry on top, place piles of our Scandi-style soft blankets and throws alongside your hay or straw bale arrangements - maybe in some of our willow baskets? - for peak levels of rustic chic. And super-cosy guests, of course!Check out our full range of ‘extras’ in the ‘We also hire…’ section - or head straight for our beautiful hay bale blankets here.
