You had me at Merlot… Planning an event on the Texas Wine Trail

Nothing is quite as picturesque as a wedding or event set in a majestic vineyard.  Texas is the fifth in the country for wine production with towns like Fredericksburg, Bryan and Grapevine just a hop, skip and jump away, why not plan your next event among the vines.

The awesome part about an event set against such as beautiful background is that there is no need to over decorate.  Using natural décor with just a few nods towards your environment gives you an elevated, casual or not so casual affair.

Adding an item like farmhouse tables or natural wood chairs keeps the look fresh and clean and using greenery reflects back to the vineyard itself.

As far as decorations, a great way to pay homage to the venue and area you are in, without getting too kitschy, is the use of wine barrels.  You can utilize a wine barrel bar as a dessert or appetizer table or as a bar itself.  Wine barrels are also a wonderful way to display a large floral arrangement, use as a sign in table or cocktail table.

Whatever your event may be do not discount the beauty of Texas Wine Country.  There are an abundance of activities for your guests in their downtime, as well as adorable mom and pop hotels and bed and breakfasts.

Trend watch: gen z yellow

Have you been seeing a golden, mustard like yellow color everywhere lately? Well, you’re not alone. Pantone named this color “Gen Z yellow” and it’s clear that celebrities and couples alike are obsessed with it. We can see why too, it pairs so easily with all kinds of different color schemes and adds a lighter, brighter, happier tone to any color palette it’s in.

Loving this Gen Z yellow but not sure how you can use it in your next event or your big day? Well, we’ve got you covered. Check out some pictures below from events we’ve helped out with that incorporate the Gen Z yellow into the decor perfectly:

Here is a bit different of an idea… The Color Condition supplies decor like that seen here. Want to dress up the ceiling of your venue or a certain area (over the head table, cake table, sweat heart table, etc.)? This is the perfect way to do that while also adding in the gen z yellow (and any others you want) into your decor!

Another way that you can incorporate the gen z yellow is by using the color in your food and desserts much like The Cake Plate did here.

Or like Simon Lee Bakery did here. We love the idea of doing this- it’s an extension of your color palette and shows that you really paid attention to and thought long and hard about even the smallest details of your big day (even if you didn’t necessarily spend that much time thinking about it).

Trend watch: Emerald weddings

Emerald weddings are all the rage. Whether it’s one of your accent colors or your main color, we love the deep green and especially love how easily it pairs with other colors (and adds a touch of moody to your big day, which is also SUPER in right now).

You can also use emerald in your color scheme regardless of what season it is! No really, couples these days are taking bigger “risks” with their wedding decor and combining colors you might not normally see paired together, regardless of the season.

Need examples of emerald weddings throughout different seasons for proof? We thought you might…. So here you go!

This couple’s colors were emerald green, navy and gold. They incorporated the emerald green with their tablecloths at their specialty tables and at the head table. The greenery they used down their head table brought in even more of the emerald green to the wedding. The couple got married in February so they went for a warmer feel to give it that winter wedding vibe. We just LOVE the color combo and how romantic that head table turned out. What do you think?

This couple went a different route and went for a fresh and airy look for their wedding. Although they got married in October, you could really use this wedding as inspiration for any season- it really is a timeless and season-less (is that a thing? We’re making it a thing…) look. They opted for a natural wood charger and brought the emerald green in with the napkin, menu and floral. Gold accents finished the look off for a perfectly fresh, emerald wedding!

Last, but certainly not least, is a spring-time inspired wedding shoot. This emerald and coral wedding inspiration also has some summertime vibes to it, so don’t let that hold you back. You could even make a few tweaks (using different flowers that are in season for your big day) and make it a fall or winter wedding look.

We decided to bring the outside in with this table. The moss underneath the glass table topper and the napkin folded atop the dinner plate add in the emerald color to the table. And then add in a touch of greenery in the centerpiece and voila!

So, as you can see, there are a variety of ways to incorporate emerald into your wedding color scheme. And we’ve only just shown you three looks! Trust us when we say, there are plenty more to see. Regardless of what time of year you find yourself getting married, or what other colors you had in mind for the decor, you can’t go wrong with adding a touch of emerald.

Pantone color of the year: living coral

In case you haven’t heard… Pantone came out with this year’s color of the year and marked “living coral” as the “it” color of 2019. We love coral. We especially love how you can pair it with just about any color scheme and within any season.

We love the living coral color so much, we decided to put together four different looks for you to show you just how you can incorporate this color into your winter, spring, summer OR fall wedding or event.

Special thanks to our UH-mazing vendor squad: Jerry Hayes Photography, The Flower Studio and Westwood Country Club. We couldn’t have pulled off such beautiful looks without each of you!

Check out the pictures below!

 

Winter: For our winter table, we decided to use our Midnight Haiku linen as the base. We love how this linen almost has a “bare tree” look to it and felt this design added to the wintry look of the table. We paired the linen with our Da Vinci chairs to give it that deep, warm winter look.

For our table top, we used our charcoal heirloom buffet plate with our Venice dinner plate. We paired the black chargers with our black Ariana goblet, black midnight martini glass and brushed black lucca faceted flatware. Using these dark details added to the overall deep and moody winter feel. We finished the look with a saffron brushed satin napkin wrapped in our ivory cottonique napkin.

The napkin and the centerpiece added the perfect touch of the living coral color to this winter table, don’t you think?

Premiere-Westwood_Feb2019-20Premiere-Westwood_Feb2019-22Premiere-Westwood_Feb2019-24Premiere-Westwood_Feb2019-27

 

Spring: We decided on the ever popular “gen z yellow” for our Spring centerpiece. We love this color for any season, but we especially love how it paired with our Pantone Spring decor.

We wanted to bring the outside in with this table, so we used a standard round table with a glass topper. Underneath the glass, The Flower Studio placed moss and floral touches to give the table that “outdoor” look. Wouldn’t you feel like you’re eating in a forest at this table?!

We used a saffron brushed satin linen paired with white chiavari chairs. The white chiavari chairs played off of the centerpiece perfectly and the saffron linen gave us that living coral look!

For the tabletop, we used our cabernet wine glass, excalibur iced tea glass and brushed gold capri flatware. We used our clear glass charger with a gold band to bring in the gold from the flatware and continued that with our gold line dinner plate. The hunter green velvet napkins gave the table more texture and played off of the moss tones underneath perfectly.

Summer: For our summer table, we wanted to do something light and bright. Our new contemporary mirror table was the perfect table for this design (standby,  it will be on the website soon)! We paired the contemporary table with our ghost chairs with arms.

For the table top, we opted for a modern marble coupe dinner and salad plate, brushed gold capri flatware, our blue lido goblet and our green Ariana goblet. We decided to use two different napkins for this look- our peapod hemstitch napkin underneath the dinner plate and our saffron brushed satin napkin underneath the salad plate.

For the centerpiece, The Flower Studio used vases in different heights with floating candles and small floral touches down the center. This gave the table such a romantic feel with the candles reflecting in the mirrored top of the table.

Fall: We went for a classic look for our Fall table with touches of living coral in the floral design and the chargers.

We used our champagne bently linen with our gray dust louis chairs. For our table top, we decided on our blush beaded glass charger, which helped pick up those Pantone living coral tones, our linen heirloom dinner and salad plates and our brushed black capri flatware. To give the table that classic, vintage look, we paired each place settings with our portico crystal iced tea glass and our melodia crystal wine glass. To finish this look, we used two napkins held together by a wooden napkin ring: our sand brushed satin napkin and our blush matte satin napkin.

For the centerpiece, The Flower Studio used roses in living coral and pampas grass details. The height of the centerpiece really gives this table a grand feeling that we just love! What do you think?

Valentine’s Day Inspiration

Can you believe Valentine’s Day is this Thursday!? (You’re welcome for the reminder if it somehow slipped your mind.) It feels like it was just yesterday we were sharing our Christmas table inspiration with you… Now here we are, almost halfway through February!

Because Valentine’s day is three days away, we thought we’d take this time to share a little V-Day table inspiration for you, in case you’re spending this week scrambling to come up with ways to make it special. We’ll even help you with what to do… A romantic dinner home-cooked by you (or carried out by you if you’re not an expert in the kitchen… we’re not here to judge or critique). How perfect does that sound?

So now that we’ve given you an idea of how to spend your evening with your honey, we’ll jump right into the table decor. We put a classic, romantic, red and pink Valentine’s Day themed table together for you guys to give you a little inspiration and get those table decorating juices flowing. Check out pictures below of our Valentine’s Day themed table:

IMG-0243

For our Valentine’s Day table, we started with our burgundy penne velvet linen. The velvet really softened up the table and made it all the more romantic. Plus, have you heard? Velvet is SO IN right now. We used a blush pink matte satin napkin at each place setting to help in giving the table that classic red and pink Valentine’s Day look.

IMG-0244

We decided on the white wash French Country chairs for our guest seating. We love how the white compliments the china, and how the white-wash pattern of the chairs picks up some of the pink tints in the tabletop items.

IMG-0248

For each of our place settings, we used the rose gold lucca flatware, the blush beaded glass charger (which is new and we LOVE it- what do you think?), the ivory linen heirloom dinner plate and the Tara coupe salad plate. The floral pattern of the Tara plate adds a little additional femininity to the table and the blush and rose gold details continue the classic red and pink look, with a modern twist.

IMG-0249

We completed the tabletop look with crystal glasses that added to the classic and romantic theme of the table. We used both the stemmed Portico Crystal iced tea glass and the Melodia Crystal beverage glass. We love how these glasses add a classic, almost vintage look to the overall look of the table.

IMG-0250

We also added a little extra sweetness to each place setting by including a Valentine’s Day themed cookie. Each place setting got a different design to keep it interesting and give the table a little mix and match feel.

IMG-0259

We opted for a classic centerpiece with pink roses to pick up the pink tones of the chargers, napkins and cookies.

So… What do you guys think? Are you feeling the love yet? Feeling inspired and ready to tackle your Valentine’s Day decor? It’s not too late. Come by one of our showrooms so we can put a mock up together or give us a call and we can do it over the phone!

And a happy Valentine’s Day from our whole team, y’all! We hope it’s the best one yet.
