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!


Jen Dillender Photography

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!

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!


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.

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….


Jessica Frey Photography

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?


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.


Jerry Hayes Photography

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?


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?

Trend watch: bye, bye strict color palettes

New year, new wedding trends! We’re back at it today with our first post of 2019! Can you believe it? It seems like just yesterday we were blogging away about Pantone’s color of the year last year. (Stay tuned for our take on this year’s color choice…. Which in case you haven’t heard, is living coral.)

Today, we are focusing on a fun and colorful wedding trend for 2019. Couples these days are less “traditional” and seem to be finding more and more ways to make their wedding days even more personal and specific to them, their style and their relationship. What better way to do that than with color?

Gone are the days where a color scheme consists of two main colors and perhaps a few accent colors. Couples are using an array of colors in their wedding decor. Whether it be the couple’s favorite colors, colors that evoke specific emotion or various tones of the most recent color of the year, you don’t have to pick just one or two anymore! (Well, I suppose, you never really had to pick just a few if you didn’t want to… it’s just no longer the “wedding norm.”) Color obsessed couples rejoice!

Want to see what we mean? Here are a few weddings and events we’ve been a part of that opted for a range of colors instead of just one or two.


Jerry Hayes Photography

This wedding at Laguna Gloria opted for shades of purple for their color scheme. We love how the napkins, menus and florals are all different shades of purple but compliment each other perfectly. You could follow this same pattern with any color you wanted and it would be GORGEous!


Stacey Conant Photography

This was a 30th birthday that was nothing less of fun! The birthday girl decided to bring in different colors with balloon decor to add to the birthday festivities. We love the blues and greens mixed in with the different shades of pinks and reds!

Balloons really are a fun and inexpensive way of adding in different pops of color you want to. You could add them as a backdrop, as a ceiling treatment or even within the floral arrangements!


Ailin Hyde Photography

This wedding was for one of our very own, so we’re undoubtedly biased on how much we love it. The couple opted for a dusty ocean blue velvet linen with reds, blues, oranges, and golds for the other colors. See what we mean when we say color is good? Some people may not have thought to use these colors originally, but look at just how FUN it is put altogether! You have no reason to be afraid of using color.


Jerry Hayes Photography

For this dia de los muertos themed event, Epic Event Design really brought the color in. Each place setting utilized a different color napkin and stemmed glass. AND the bright orange florals on the tables brought in even more color. We just love how unique and bright this design is!


Lisa Hause Photography

This event themed “myths and heroes” was actually for a corporate holiday party. Different areas of the event were themed around different myths and heroes, and each “sub-room” brought it’s own wealth of color. Perhaps our favorite, though, were the umbrellas used over the dance floor with the accent lighting. You could use this same inspiration for your wedding or next event, no problem!


Ailin Hyde Photography

This head table was covered in all kinds different colors and we are here for it! Copper & Birch nailed the florals. From oranges, to pinks, to reds and greens with cactus accents, the various colors really spiced up the head table!


Jessica Frey Photography

Need some colorful but moody inspiration? Look no further. From blacks, to blues, to purples to golds. This color palette is a fun one that compliments well, but also a moody one that evokes a dramatic feeling.


See what we mean? Using more than two prominent colors in your color scheme is so fun and can really be tweaked to match you and your vision for your big day perfectly!

Trend watch: structural floral installations

One trend that made an appearance in 2018 that we will definitely be seeing more of in 2019 are structural floral installations. Whether that is floral hoops instead of traditional bouquets, arches adorned in florals or hanging loops throughout the ceremony or reception, this is one trend we are here for.

We love how it brings a modern and unique look to each wedding that incorporates this trend. No two structural floral installations are the same, and the options are endless. You are only limited by your (and your florists) creativity.

Want to see what we mean? Here are some pictures from a styled shoot we participated in at Horseshoe Bay Resort. These images were taken by Brittany Jean Photography and we just LOVE how it turned out. Check them out!

For this shoot, the designer, Disch Events, decided to use a structural floral installation for the ceremony back drop. It was both eye catching and elegant, and was the perfect, unique backdrop for a waterfront wedding.

We also love how the installation didn’t take away from the natural scenery at all, but instead complimented it perfectly. Are you as obsessed as we are?

Christmas Inspiration

Did you know that Christmas is 15 days away? You probably did. But in case you didn’t, Christmas is 15 DAYS AWAY! If you’re like us, you may be wondering how you’re going to put a table together for a festive meal and get all of the shopping finished in these next two weeks…

Well, rest easy, we are here to help with the table portion of your dilemma! We put together a styled shoot for your Christmas inspiration and are going to share it with you so you have one less thing on your to-do list. Consider it our Christmas gift to you!

Check out the images below taken by Jerry Hayes Photography at Mercury Hall with The Flower Studio:


For our Christmas table, we decided to go with a classic red, silver and gold look. We started with an apple red sequin linen and silver chiavari chairs.


We just love how the sequin linen picks up the light. Whether you are having your get together during the day or evening, it will pick up the natural sunlight or a candlelight glow to add some “sparkly romance” to your gathering!


The Flower Studio knocked this centerpiece out of the park! A mix of red roses and gold ornaments were the perfect addition to this table, and also tied in the classic colors we used perfectly!


Isn’t it perfect and so unique? We just love the way their design.


To add to the classic coloring, we used both a gold satin napkin and a silver matte satin napkin at each place setting. We alternated the napkin display between placing them on the charger and placing them in the wine glass. Alternating the napkins in such a way added a little fun feeling to the table and kept it from having such a uniform, “cookie cutter” design.


We decided to bring the sparkle up on our Christmas table by using our silver glitter charger. Color us biased, but we just love this charger and the sparkle it adds to any tabletop on which it’s used!

We also used a lucite napkin ring on those napkins we had placed atop the charger, which was a nice, elegant touch. Our gold capri flatware were the perfect modern, gold addition to this festive table!


For the glassware, we used the pure wine glass and the pure champagne flute. We love the teardrop shape of this glassware line and the elegance it adds to any tabletop! And, what’s even better about the pure glassware, is that there is a glass for just about any beverage you want to serve!


Feeling better about your tabletop design? Good. We had hoped this would help. Now, mentally moving on to what you might serve your guests? Well, we’ve got some ideas here too, but if we give you those, we want an invite… Joking. (Sort of.)

We did find the perfect holiday cocktail for you to serve your guests, though! Check out this recipe for a Moscow Reindeer (fun name, right!?). We taste-tested it as well, so rest easy on that. If you like a Moscow Mule, you’ll like this bad boy. And doesn’t it look darling in our copper mug!?


Now that you have all of our holiday planning tips and secrets, you should have no trouble getting started! And quick, because Santa will be here before we know it!

Let us be among the first to say, “happy holidays” to you and yours. Whatever you end up doing for the season, it will be time well spent around friends, family and loved ones.
