  1. Plaid- We know you have been walking the aisles of target and HomeGoods seeing all the new plaid accessories, so add this element to a napkin. BRIDES- get the Bride and Groom napkin monogrammed to add that personal touch

2. Greenery – What a cost effective way to not only bring the christmas aroma but spruce up the table top. Head to Trader joes or your local tree shop and grab some fresh pine and greenery to add

BRIDES- think about creating a Wreath as a backdrop with a sweet saying on it, and also your Table Numbers- check our these hanging numbers with greenery

  

 

3. Go Green- Dress yourself in items that bring that Holiday feel, if you look festive so will your party!

BRIDES- dont be afraid to add the POP with some fun festive shoes, or a delicate hair piece

4. Cutting Boards- Take a second to look around your kitchen and see what elements or items you have. Use those pieces and add a quick note, menu , or saying to bring that extra detail and have a homey feel to your party

BRIDES- Think about what signage you want to incorporate in your day. Do you have a Bar Menu, Thank you Note, After Party ? Then look into adding that note to a unique product or item , like Cutting Boards!

5. Festive PaperGoods- Personalize your paper goods with a portrait, hand painted , or monogram.

BRIDES: Incorporate this in your wedding suite!

Falling In Place

, , ,

Its Fall Ya’ll ! What do you love most about this time of year?

Gathering comes to mind for me! With all the festivities that happen October through December they all seem to be wrapped around sharing a meal and gathering together in celebration and gratitude. Such grateful hearts joining in one room/table. Everything Falls right into place. Speaking of place…. We love a good place setting. Every small detail that finds a home and heart to reach. So lets chat about what is trending for Fall table scapes.

  1. Florals: while floral’s are always a go-to for the best table topper, this year we are seeing changes in colored/textured vases everything from stone, black, concrete, to hammered copper. Search your local peddlers mall to find some vintage or second hand and don’t be afraid of a little spray paint!
  2. Candles : We love ourselves some candle lite, but this time switch the white sticks for a pop of color, whether its taupe or burgundy you can swing by World Market , Target, or even HomeGoods and find these sweet additions.
  3. Flatware: We have seen such a wonderful new selection of flatware and we are in fork heaven! Find a theme for your party,event, or wedding and try and match the tone with your rentals . Don’t be afraid to add BLACK.  Here are Some links to websites with the hottest and newest items:
    1. http://aorents.com/catalog/flatware-accessories/tidbit-cocktail
    2. https://www.worldmarket.com/product/rose–gold-twig–flatware-collection.do?sortby=ourPicks&from=fn
    3. https://www.pier1.com/arbor-golden-20-piece-flatware-set/3075241.html?cgid=silverware-utensils#nav=left&start=1
  4. Textiles/Fabric: One thing that truly will help create your table scene is the fabrics you select. We are seeing a lot of Plaids, Velvet, Chunky Knit and always linen this year. One great way to incorporate these textures besides just by a  table linen is using blankets, rugs, and/or scarfs. throw these items on the chairs, stools, or table top to add dimension and texture
  5. Nix the flowers and for a cheaper cost option go to your local food market and snag some seasonal fruits or vegetables that add some fall color tones .
  6. Find earthy and natural elements to add on the plate with a hand made menu card or name card ie Leaf, twig, fruit, stones etc.

So let everything Fall into place on your table and check out some more inspiration pictures below !
