Wedding Trend Tuesday- Farm Tables!

My favorite thing about using vintage furniture at a wedding reception is that it gives your reception a warm and cozy, homey feel unlike stark traditional event rentals. It's decoration without trying too hard. There's nothing more family style than an old farm table to sit around with your family (like we did) or your wedding party! And a huge benefit is that you don't need to cover it up with a table cloth.

Here are some images to get you inspired-

This table is GORGEOUS and I love the mixture of chairs! Green Wedding Shoes

Here's a farm table used for a cheese table- you could also do it for your cake table! Intimate Weddings 

I love this look- it shows how chic a farm table can be! Jetfete Blog
The great thing about a farm table is that it can provide you with a rustic feel if that is what you're going for or it can be very chic if rustic is not what you're necessarily going for.

Happy Tuesday!

Wedding Trend Tuesday- Burlap Banners

I'm a day late! I know, I'm sorry. I came back to a crazy apartment after a long weekend home and I just HAD to clean. Plus I spent almost all day Sunday at Ikea with my sister and got some great stuff to organize and I just couldn't wait a day to put it to use. I'm still working on getting into a routine so I remember which days to be posting what and when.

ANYWHO. Burlap banners are so in! Not only that but they're easy to make and cheap enough to buy them already made and personalized if you aren't so crafty. Plus it's a great way to let your guests know where things are located in your venue by using them as labels. I made a few for my wedding and would love to make them for your event (if you rent from us of course! :P)

The first one is from an Etsy Shop where you can buy them. The second is from a wedding featured on La Belle Bride.

And the next couple are from my wedding-

They're just a lovely way to add a special touch to your decor and they can be functional too! I actually made my save the dates a little banner that had info on some of the triangles and patterned paper on the others to add color. It was small enough for our guests to hang on the fridge as a reminder. There are so many different ways to use these banners.

Happy Planning!

Wedding Trend Tuesday: Wooden Box Centerpieces

To me, there is nothing more satisfying than a good old fashioned rustic wedding. I love the mixture of rusty vintage things and beautiful wedding details like flowers and bows. It creates such a nice balance that your wedding can feel both elegant and comfortable.

I received an email last week from Elizabeth Anne Designs saying hey, check out some of our weddings. I'm happy I did- they feature some really gorgeous weddings on their site in addition to so many great sources and ideas including everything from helping you find vendors to teaching you DIY projects. As I perused their wedding gallery I noticed a big trend right now is using wooden boxes and crates for flower centerpieces. I just love the look.

Happy Tuesday!

Little Pieces, Big Statement

Happy New Year and Happy Friday!

We've got some great new pieces in these past few days and we just had to share them with you. They're so perfect for guestbook tables, cake tables, or a little additional stand to display your favorite family photos and knick-knacks!

And they make a much bigger statement than a boring table :)

We've already had so many inquiries about these two little guys so if you're interested in renting them give us a call because they won't be around for long!

Have a great day!
