We had the pleasure of participating in The Winfield Inn’s open house last week and we just LOVE how the Inn looked all dressed up so we had to share a couple of snaps:

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?

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?

As you can see, there are many ways to incorporate Pantone’s living coral color of the year into your next event or wedding. We hope these examples got those design juices flowing!

We’d love to help put your next look together whenever you’re ready. Just stop by one of our showrooms and we’ll get to designing together!

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.

IMG-0266IMG-0271IMG-0273IMG-0276IMG-0283

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.

Trend watch: velvet everything

We’re back this week with another trend watch and this time, we’re focusing on one of the softer trends for 2019: velvet.

Gone are the days when you could only use velvet if you were having a fall or winter wedding. Couples these days are using velvet regardless of their wedding season and we are heeeere for it.

With how many different color velvets there are, you can really pair it with any color scheme and fit it perfectly to your overall wedding vibe. And, you don’t just have to use velvet in your bridesmaids dresses or apparel (although who wouldn’t want to sit and pet a velvet dress all night long?). You can incorporate your velvet into your table linens, napkins, accents on your chairs, the actual chairs, draping, bouquet details, and SO much more.

The options are endless. Anything and everything can be covered in velvet if you want!

Want to see what we mean? We thought you might. Here are some pictures from weddings and styled shoots we’ve been a part of that are bringing this velvet trend to life. Check it out!

This wedding used a turquoise velvet linen and added pops of color with silver chargers, orange dinner plates, a blue casablanca salad plate and a deep red napkin. Are you getting all of the fiesta feels? Although this wedding took place in December (on an evening when the weather was in the 30-40 degree range), it was warm and inviting. The velvet table linen definitely helped add to the warm, soft feeling of the evening.

This couple used emerald as one of their main wedding colors and decided on emerald velvet linens for some of their guest tables (and farm style tables for the others). The green paired with the soft florals made this fall wedding warm and inviting as well.

Same wedding, different table… For the couple’s bride and groom chairs at the head table, they chose a velvet emerald green chair that complimented the guest tables with velvet linens PERFECTLY. Not pictured, but the bridesmaids were also in velvet dresses. All the velvet and ALL the heart eyes for this design!

Are you as obsessed with this table as we are? This was a styled shoot we helped with (the table, chairs and linen are ours) a little while back and we just LOVE how it turned out. The neutral velvet linen paired with the colorful glassware and centerpiece create such a classic, timeless look. We also love how the velvet linen is just a little bit bigger than the table, to give it that soft, billowing look. We shot this look in the dead of winter, but change up the colors a bit and you could really use this as inspiration for any color scheme within any season!

Does this not just scream spring/summer to you? The slate blue velvet linen (which actually changes color a bit depending on what angle you’re looking at it from), paired with the rose gold flatware and yellow and orange flowers just scream spring and summer to us, but you could change up the floral centerpiece a little and use this look for any season. The velvet look is really so versatile!

Loving these velvets? We are too. Going back through these images makes us want to cuddle up in a pile of velvet and stay there all day. Need more inspiration? Or just want to look at more velvet pretty? We don’t blame you. Head over to our Pinterest board “velvet everything” for all of your velvet inspiration needs!

Ready to come play with some velvet? Stop by one of our showrooms and let’s make it happen!

Trend watch: can’t get enough copper

Rose gold is taking a backseat this year it would appear…. So which metallic is the trend setter this year? Who’s the new metallic in town?

Well, for 2019, it’s all about the copper.

We love copper and how easily it pairs with just about anything. You can incorporate copper in a plethora of ways, too. From tabletop items like cups, chargers, flatware, etc., to seating assignments, to table numbers, to invitations to bridesmaids and groomsmen attire. The options are really endless.

Need some examples? Here are a few images below of weddings and events we were a part of that incorporated copper into their decor. Check it out:

E.B. Creative created the signage for this event. We love how  the event planner, Tracy Collins Events, used copper as an accent throughout the event decor. Want to show your guests their bar options in a creative way? Stamp it on a piece of copper or on a piece of lucite hanging from a copper structure!

img_5776

High Beam

Here, the designers, High Beam, opted for a copper linen to pull in their copper inspiration. They paired it with gold accents in the flatware, painted pomegranate and the beveled glass. Using copper for your linen allows you to pull other metallics into the tabletop decor, if you so choose.

Kati Hewitt Photography

Here, a darker copper was used as an accent to give more of an earthy feel than a bright metallic pop like we so often see with a true copper. We love this look. It is warm and inviting and the copper accent really seals the deal.

Brio Weddings

For this design, Bella Events opted for deeper copper inspiration as well. The copper rope flatware, paired with the iridescent copper crush napkin add the “copper feels” and contrast the bright, fall florals. What do you think of this set up? We’re pretty obsessed.

 

So as you can see, there are a ton of ways to incorporate copper into your decor, and these examples are only the start! We have more inspiration for you over on our Pinterest page, so give us a follow and check it out!

Trend watch: moody hues

Mood for 2019? Moody. That’s a thing right? Well, for weddings and events it sure is! One trend that we saw in 2018 isn’t going anywhere for this new year. What is that trend you might be asking? In case the title didn’t give it away, we are spending today’s blog post talking alllll about moody hues.

We love the depth and sass that moody hues bring to weddings. And perhaps one of the best parts? You can incorporate moody hues into your decor, regardless of what season you’re getting married!

Love the idea of moody hues but not quite sure how you can include this trend into your big day? Check out a few pictures below of weddings and events we’ve had the pleasure of being a part of that used moody hues in their decor.

Brio Photography, Bella Events

Here we have fall moody and we love everything about this. There are moody and bright and coral tones (hey Pantone color of the year!) present on this table. You might think, just by reading that, that it would be way too many colors and hues going on, but it just works. The deeper tones of the red flowers mixed with the copper tones of the flatware and napkin add the moody hues. To contrast, the bright pinks and yellow/oranges in the flowers add the color pop. Are you as obsessed with this table set up as we are?

Rachel Driskell Photography, Party Time Rentals 

Here is another table set up that incorporates both the moody hues and a pop of color. This set up would be perfect for a summer or spring wedding with the bright colors in the floral arrangement. They opted for a dark linen with equally dark and moody china, glassware and candlesticks. The pinks, yellows and oranges add a nice contrast of color to the deep and dark tones of the table. We also love the metallic and marble tones of this table. It’s moody, colorful and modern and we couldn’t love it more!

This couple brought in moody touches to their dessert table with the candlelight behind the set up, as well as the flowers on the cake and the table that everything was placed on. We love this look because it’s just a touch of moody. If you love the idea of incorporating moody hues but don’t want to go all out moody darkness, this is the perfect way to do that! Also, how delicious do those desserts look? If you’re having a dessert set up like this, we want an invite….

This set up included metallic and moody hues. The black plates, with the navy menus and the deep purple floral arrangement were perfectly contrasted by the gold napkins, rose gold flatware and ivory seating. To give this look even more of a romantic vibe, modern, gold votives were added to the tabletop. What do you think? Is this speaking to you?

img_5778

High Beam Events

Here we have another perfectly moody fall set up. We love the color contrast here. The orange linen contrasts the deep purple napkins and candles perfectly. They decided to bring in gold tones by brush painting pomegranates (what a great DIY idea!) and using gold flatware. The floral table runner that runs down the center mixes in purples, oranges and greens to add complimentary colors, while also brightening it up a bit.

This wedding brought in the moody hues hard. From the romantic candle lighting on the dark brown tables, to the dark grey draping (done by Unique Design & Events) throughout, this definitely screams moody, industrial chic! Have we gotten you on board the “moody hue” train yet?

premiere-lagunaapril2018-101

Jerry Hayes Photography

Is black your favorite color? Then this set up is for you! All black everything, and we love it! From the tablecloths, to the chairs, plates and flatware, this event went for alllll of the black and moody tones. The green moss and clear glassware add a nice break to the monotony of the black.

Feeling inspired? See what we mean when we say you can add moody hues to any theme, season or color scheme?

Be sure to follow us on Pinterest if you need even more moody hue inspiration!
