Bright Inspiration for Spring Wedding Flowers

It’s SPRING! With the change in temps came the bloom of flowers and we are dreaming in the colors of the season. From bright corals to deep fuchsias, the foliage this time of the year has us feeling more inspired than ever! It looks like we aren’t the only ones either. This gorgeous styled shoot from Styled Shoots Across America is on the same wavelength as us, scroll through to check out this perfectly seasonal set up!

Cator Woolford Gardens, in Atlanta, Georgia, set a beautiful backdrop for this shoot. With its trellised walkways and sweeping greens, it’s a dream wedding location. Heather Benge Events took advantage of the landscaped grounds to put together the loveliest lounge setting with furniture from Southern Vintage. We’re gushing over the pretty pink tufted velvet armchairs, just the place for newlyweds to celebrate their nuptials!

And how about that dining location? Nestled between stone columns and tucked underneath overgrown vines, it’s the most romantic little spot! We love how our Sage Plaster linen set the table with soft shades of green and taupe, giving florals by Intrigue Designs room to blossom! And blossom they did! The floral arrangement truly brought Spring feelings to life in lush, cascading shades of pink and orange. What joy!

We’re head over heels for the table top decor, delicate pieces from Tea and Old Roses that tied everything together. Lovely vintage china in matching shades of blush and mint mixed in with mother of pearl chargers and shiny gold flatware to give this tablescape a beautiful shimmer. Rose-colored glassware completed the look giving guests the perfect glasses to cheers with!

From the spring color palette to the garden setting, we’re falling head over heels from this one! And if you’re looking for more spring looks, check out this dreamy Los Angeles styled shoot and get ready to be inspired!

Adding Texture to your Event Design!

Whether it’s a wedding or a social celebration, the best events are really all about tantalizing the five senses. From the setting to the cocktails, you’ve thought of every last detail to make this event incredible, kudos to you! So you’ve hit sight, sound, taste and smell, but did you remember to include touch? If not, we’ve got you covered! From our super soft velvet-inspired Velluto collection to an array of voluminous ruffles and waves, there’s a linen out there for you. Here are three of our favorite ways to have your guests getting touchy-feely at the party…

Amp up the volume with our Blush Tulle Wave, our slightly softer take on our traditional Ruffle linen. The tulle fabric gives you all the perks of texture while adding a romantic feel to your tablescape. Petal Productions paired it with a beautiful arrangement of roses topped with antler adornment. The combination makes for a perfect balance of modern and whimsy!

If you’re looking for lasercut, our Rose Iris overlay from the Preston Bailey Collection is the perfect piece. The floral motif shines in its leather-look fabric with just the right amount of gloss. Smells Like Peonies Events paired it with an assortment of antique brass candleholders that cascaded down the table like a runner. And to keep the look minimal they used clear Kartell-inspired ghost chairs paired with textured pillows, to make guests feel extra comfortable at their seat.

And for the ultimate favorite feeling, let’s get the Velluto! Our softest style yet, it’s a velvet-inspired fabric that’ll have your guests running their hands over the tablecloth all night long. Heather Benge Events styled the Blush Velluto with our Snow Elizabeth Lace napkins just right for an outdoor soiree. We love how the florals played with monochromatic hues to really pop against the linen. *Swoon*

Whether you’re looking for volume in the way of ruffles and tulle, or something that will add a tactile element while laying flat, such as leather and velvet, there’s a linen out there to bring that fifth sense to the party. Your guests will be getting touchy-feely before they even realize it!

A Tropical Welcome with The Welcome Bag Committee!

The date is set, everyone booked their flights and you and your beloved family and friends are jetting to your tropical wedding destination – hooray! Now that they’ve made the trek to soak up some rays for your big day, how can you give them a big warm welcome to the weekend?

Well, Jordan Payne, the founder of Jordan Payne Events, thinks you should have a special gift waiting to…well, welcome them to your wedding! That’s why she launched The Welcome Bag Committee, a service that can both design and provide beautiful, stylish welcome bags for wedding guests. Her fun new venture has a whole range of designs for whatever your wedding style – and, best of all, they double as beautifully curated gifts for any other occasion you’re celebrating!

We may be a little biased but we’re head over heels in love with her tropical-leaning pieces, such as the Palm Envy Tote and the Palm Leaf Blush collection. Can you blame us? They fall right in line with our Palm Springs linen and our Beverly linen from the Solstice Collection! It’s no wonder that we didn’t even hesitate when Jordan dreamed up a styled shoot with pieces from both of our collections, just scroll through to see the magic come together!

Jordan set the table for this styled shoot with our Palm Springs linen, a bright printed linen from our Solstice Collection that has summer written all over it! This style can go for barefoot casual or be dressed up for oceanside glam, which is just the vibe we’re feeling from this design. The glassware, in shades of green, is elegant enough for rose or just right for a margarita – whatever your pick!

How about the floral arrangement? David Kimmel Flowers blew it out of the ocean on this one! Bright blooms in shades of fuchsia and orange were woven in with palm leaves and succulents for an elevated take on a beachside arrangement.

We can’t get enough of the Ceci New York stationery and menu cards! The invitation, with laser cut palm motifs, gold foiling and light wood accents sets the mood for what’s to come on the big day. And the menu card? Cut in the shape of a monstera palm leaf with delicate hand watercoloring, it’s beautiful enough to frame!

The absolute most fun thing to see come together on this shoot was the pairing of The Welcome Bag Committee’s tote bags against our linens. As if one wasn’t already fun enough, the two of them make for a sure-fire fantastic party. We think it’s the perfect way to, as Jordan puts it, “celebrate guests celebrating you!”

How to use Sketching to Design Signature Events

When it comes to designing weddings and events, there are a lot of tools out there. Whether you piece together mood boards or curate Pinterest boards, making sure your client can understand your ideas can be the difference between booking the gig or losing it to someone else. So how do you make sure you can relay your creativity in a way that’ll have your client saying “I do!”? Sketching!

Cue Mary Phan, founder and artist at The Sketchbook Series. Mary launched The Sketchbook Series to inspire and guide creatives on their journey towards turning their ideas into realities, leveraging sketching as a tool to aid communication through the design process. We’ve both attended and sponsored many an event with The Sketchbook Series and are always reminded what an asset it is to have this skill.

We collaborated with The Sketchbook Series in anticipation of their 2018 tour, which kicked off last month, to bring to life some of our own ideas and compare them with event realities. We encourage you take a peek at their upcoming dates and attend a workshop, everyone in our industry could benefit from this skill! Scroll through to see just how powerful sketching can be…

We had thoughts of Bougainvillea and bright blue ikat print on the mind. Mary combined our Cobalt Marrakesh and Natural Wood Verona Chair with table top pieces from Casa de Perrin and floral inspiration shot by Lucy Cuneo to sketch up this tablescape. Just right for an al fresco lunch!

A graphic black and white palette accented with gold details was just the thing we had in mind. Mary set the table with our Black Sedona and Gold Soho Chairs and paired it with black and white pieces from Casa de Perrin, really amplifying the bold geometric effect. To soften the look, she took inspiration from a mossy terrarium arrangement by Kelly Elissa Events & Enchantment Floral.

Anyone else ready for summer? Don’t we know it! Mary brought out the tropics in her sketch with our Beverly linen paired just for the outdoors with our Oak Chairs. Tabletop pieces from BorrowedBlu added a modern touch while florals inspired by Ashley Elizabeth Designs kept everything refreshingly cool.

Romantic Wedding Inspiration at the Biltmore Estate

Another year, another Valentine’s Day, and another fabulous occasion to celebrate love…as if we didn’t do that enough already! We love any excuse to decorate in shades of pink and red and today is the perfect chance to share a beautiful treat with you. Straight from the gorgeous Biltmore Estate, Rebecca Rose Events dreamed up an impossibly romantic styled shoot that landed in the (print!) pages of Southern Weddings V10. Scroll through and prepare to fall hopelessly in love….

So, the Biltmore Estate. Can we take a minute to soak it in? What a spectacular place full of history and character, and a breathtaking backdrop to this styled wedding shoot. Ornate terraces and seemingly never-ending vistas created a magical spot for this couple and perfectly manicured lawns were just the place to catch up with bridesmaids before the big “I Do.”

When it came time to sit down to eat, drink and be merry, a royal table for 14 was set for guests to enjoy. Rebecca Rose Events set the mood with our White Vine Tulle overlay, an embroidered take on lace, paired over a champagne hued base. Adding in a quintessential touch of color, red napkins were folded delicately atop gilded chargers.

We love the florals, designed by Rebecca Rose Events, in a runner style cascading down the table in shades of blush, red, and burgundy with lush greenery all around. Taper candles nestled into gorgeous brass candlesticks from BHLDN popped up at different heights ranging in color from pretty pink to deep aubergine, giving the tablescape an incredibly romantic feel.

There were details galore at this one and lucky for us, Henry Photography captured every single one! From Bella Figura’s invitation suite, with its delicate gold lettering and red accents, to calligraphy by four different creatives, each giving the day their distinctive touch, nothing was overlooked! Even the escort card display, a vintage console decorated with books covered in whimsical patterns in the day’s color palette, was uniquely fitted to the shoot.

But probably our favorite detail was the couple’s vintage getaway car. With a bright red bag packed ready to go, they jetted off into the day with nothing but love in sight. Congratulations!

Top 10 Tips to Creating an Instagram-Worthy Styled Photo Shoot

If you’re familiar with Leah Weinberg, of Color Pop Events, then you know that bold palettes are kind of her thing – she does after all plan weddings for those who dream in color. We’re SO grateful for the incredible concepts she dreams up when it comes to photoshoots, where she really lets her design-tendencies shine, because she brings our linens to life in the most vibrant ways. We picked her brain to get to the core of how she comes up with this stuff (Tutti Fruti? Jackson Pollock? Lisa Frank?!) and got her top 10 tips for designing an awesome styled shoot. Grab a pencil because you’re going to want some notes…

Create something people haven’t seen before. Want to get people’s attention and really wow them? Then you’ve got to show them something new. So many trends have been done to death, so why not be the trendsetter?

Seek inspiration. If you’re going to create something new, then you’ve got to be inspired. Go to a museum. Go see a play. Heck, just go for a walk. There are so many inspiring things all around us that all it really takes is for us to be mindful and open to what we’re seeing.

Have no fear. I know it’s cliche to say “think outside the box,” but in my opinion, the more “out there” the concept is, the better. This is coming from someone who has done shoots inspired by Barbie, Jeff Koons and Lisa Frank (just to name a few), and I can tell you that the weirder your idea is, the more attention you’ll get.

Assemble a dream team of vendors. The secret to creating great images is to have an amazing vendor team supporting you. Make sure you’re working with people you know and trust, and whose style matches your own.

Colors are key. The fastest way to set the tone for your shoot is with your color palette. Choose colors that really speak to the feel of your shoot. They don’t have to be bold (though I would obviously love them to be) but they need to make a statement and really define the theme of the shoot.

A pop of texture is the new pop of color. Want to make people really feel what it’s like to be at your party? Bring in textured linens that will make your audience want to touch and feel everything in your images.

Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and prints. The ability to mix patterns and prints is definitely a gift, but if you can do it well, then you can create something truly unique.

Sweat the small stuff. To have a successful shoot, you’ve got to live in the details. Having as many elements as possible gives you more to photograph and will give more life to your ideas.

Know your angles. Whatever you choose to create, make sure it looks good from every angle. The photographer is going to want to capture your work in as many ways as possible–whether it’s a detail shot of one flower or a head on image of the centerpiece or an overhead photo of the flowers as part of the entire tablescape–so make sure your work is ready for those 360 views.

Have fun. Isn’t that the whole point?

Make sure to follow along with Leah as she plans her way into 2018!

Inspired by Ultra Violet to Design in a Purple Palette

Pantone describes its 2018 Color of the Year pick as, “a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade,” that, “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.” Wow, that is giving us all the positive-vibes for the year. So with Ultra Violet on the mind, we thought we’d look back on some of our favorite Purple looks. Countdown on our top 7 looks and find some inspiration for using the color Purple…

This sweet and sophisticated design from Ashton Events is a perfect way to set the base with Purple. Our Eggplant Velluto was accented with hints of blush and gilded accents, our favorite pieces being those sophisticated swans swimming on by.

Give purple a stark contrast by setting it against a textured black linen. Swoon Soiree opted for our Black Leather Rosette and brought in purple hues with a the napkin detail and in the floral arrangement.

Flaire Weddings took us to Provence, France (literally!) for this gorgeous lavender-inspired shoot. Set against a perfectly landscaped garden, a table dressed in our Lilac Velluto was just the romantic place for dinner.

Set in the Big Easy, this New Orleans styled shoot from Belladeux Event Design pulled out all the stops. Our Preston Bailey Collection Off White Shimmer set the sparkling setting for this purple and silver wedding design. The purple hues came cascading down from the orchid arrangement to the charger plates.

This properFUN design from Jes Gordon sets just the right balance between edgy and sweet. Our Ivory Laurel linen was accented with shades of blush, purple and blue across the tabletop and in a mix of chair pads, adding such a fun design element!

From Kesh Designs in Chicago comes this incredible design. Orchids in shades of purple cascaded onto the tabletop to meet our Preston Bailey Collection Champagne Heather Napkin Bands wrapped around our Stone Metallic Faux Dupioni napkins. With our Champagne Metallic Forest linen, it tied together beautifully for a golden look.

And one of our favorite looks, really bringing all the nuances of Purple to the party, was this Purple Rain inspired event at Engage!16 at The Breakers in Palm Beach. Our Purple Sequin Taffeta danced the night away at this after party with the Prince vibes all around! We can’t think of a better way to celebrate with this magical color!

A Bright Blue and White Winter Wedding in North Carolina

Blue and White is a quintessential wedding color palette, and one that we’ll never tire of! Whether you’re
going light blue, like this shoot here, or adding in some vibrant reds, like this real wedding, it’s all good in our book. So, when Hart and Co. Events came to us with this navy blue wedding inspiration photoshoot, we were beside ourselves. Scroll through to see it come together beautifully…

Henry Connor Bost House & Farm, in North Carolina, was the most gorgeous location for this shoot. With the feelings of fall in the air and the foliage turning all around, it just feels magical! Moving between the house and the grounds for a small ceremony was the loveliest way to say “I Do!

What about the reception? Well, a pretty intimate table set for 4 found its place under warm streams of
sunshine at just the right moment. Set against our Navy Western linen, blue & white Chinoiserie plates, from Old South Vintage Rentals, popped to life with small gold ornate plated, from VTG VLT, to complement them.

And in the center of the table, a primary-colored arrangement of flowers from Nectar gave the tablescape that bright pop of color. We love how taper candles, in blue and white, ran down the center in varied heights, like a runner.

Of course it wouldn’t be a celebrating without the bubbly! A rustic bar sat on the porch of the house
decorated with spirits and delicious fruit to accompany. Just the place to dine al fresco, which we love to do ourselves! Cheers to that!

Festive Holiday Wedding Inspiration in Fuchsia

From corporate holiday parties to winter weddings, the season of celebration is upon us and we’re so very excited (can you tell we love hosting?)! Everything comes together this time of year in shiny gem colors and vibrant metallic tones and it’s our absolute favorite thing to see. No surprise then that we’re completely obsessed with this Christopher Marcs Design styled shoot, full of hot pinks and purple for us to gush over!

Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta played the perfect setting for this brilliant design. The room was lit up in pink- hued up lighting that accented the statuesque columns and crystal chandeliers – a real dream of a venue!

A head table set for 18 was the highlight of the reception, centered in the middle of the action and
surrounded by round guest tables in shades of purple. To accent the head table even more, Christopher
Marcs Design dressed it with our Raspberry Sequin Pattern linen. Combining bold fuchsia and a geometric pattern of sequins, this linen really shines!

We love how the tabletop brought in ombre shades of purple in the florals and bright accents of gold on the tableware. The look was completely refined and brought a ton of fun to the party!

And of course, a sweetheart table fit for royalty graced the stage dressed in our Gold Sequin Chain overlay. The table was brimming with blooms and anchored by high back chairs in ivory and gold. Just the place to celebrate your “I Do’s!” Whether you’re celebrating your winter nuptials this year or working up a fantastic holiday party, this styled shoot should provide plenty of inspiration!

Setting our Table for the Holidays

We’re so lucky to work in an industry where joy and celebrations are our business. It’s a wonderful reminder to express gratitude daily and as Thanksgiving approaches we wanted to take a pause to share with you some of the things our team is celebrating this year. From travels to beautiful parts of the world to the birth of not one, but two gorgeous baby girls, 2017 has been great to us!

And we’re also gearing up for some excitement in 2018, a new collection in the works, which we’re so
thrilled to share a sneak peek with you! From The Social Office, a styled shoot featuring our Coral Istanbul Linen (coming soon!) that’s perfect for sharing Thanksgiving dinner. Pull up a seat at the table and scroll through to read all about it…

With much gratitude to the amazing team who dreamed up this table; it inspires us to share with friends and family at something to beautiful and inviting! We couldn’t have done it without Dori, at The Social Office, who designed and planned this. Thank you to all creative partners!

Pastel Inspiration in Pink and White for Winter Weddings

In case you missed it, pastel colors are back! From pretty yellows to light pinks (sometimes made modern with a mix of grey), we’re falling in love with these soft shades all over again. So, when Jacin Fitzgerald dreamed up this incredible styled shoot, full of blush and mint green hues, we were obviously head over heels! Scroll through to explore the full beauty of this one…

Let’s start with the Biltmore Ballrooms. WOW. What a perfect setting in Atlanta for this one (no wonder it landed in Southern Weddings v9)! The classic space set the backdrop for an elegant and refined wedding style, made all the more fun with its mint-green walls and sparkling chandeliers. We love how Sawyer Baird captured the natural light filtering through, giving every moment that magic touch.

Jacin Fitzgerald not only planned and designed this lovely day but she also arranged the gorgeous florals for the shoot. A mix of white and green with tinge of blush, they added just the right touch of greenery.

Setting the tables, one for guests and the other for the sweethearts, Jacin Fitzgerald used our Anita linen – in two ways! Our White Anita for the couple and our Sultry Beige Anita for guests. The two styles played right into the color palette while adding a little sequin sparkle.

From start to finish, this gorgeous styled shoot is the perfect inspiration for that timeless wedding of your dreams!

Three Ways to Style your Holiday Party!

‘Tis the season! The holidays are upon us and it’s just a countdown to the New Year from here. With Thanksgiving around the corner and December holidays right after, are you ready for those seasonal soirees? You know we love the festivities this time of year (remember our lookbook last holiday season?) and are always looking for fun ways to jazz up the party.


With the help of Sofia Crokos Events and Lifestyle, we have three sophisticated and definitely-not- boring looks to inspire your celebrations this season. So whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving at your place or gearing up to throw a huge corporate event, scroll through to get inspired!

For an intimate dinner, we love how Sofia styled our Champagne Metallic Forest. The linen served as a pretty neutral backdrop to accents of birch wood and bright red blooms from Bastille NYC. It has a minimal feel to it without being cold. Those sheepskins really warmed it up!

We’re obsessed with the tiny snow-capped pine trees placed around the setting, gives it that surprising touch of fun that Sofia is known for.

Kicking it up to the next, incredibly chic design, Sofia used our Navy Blue Sequin Taffeta to set the table. The impossibly elegant combination for black and blue with accents of white and gold is to die for. The settings from The Tabletop Company paired with placemats from Red Bliss Design are a match made in heaven!

Add to that the unique gold vases for Bastille NYC’s Calla lilies, and the geometric shapes across the setting come together to a beautiful effect. This design is fit for a corporate holiday party or a luxe New Year’s soiree!

Taking it back to a traditional winter palette with a twist, Sofia used our Emerald Green Sequin Taffeta to dream up a holiday wonderland! Brightening the tablescape with copper accents, we love how the colors came together for a modern take on a winter design.

The lush floral runner, brimming with bright greens and rich shades of brown, really set the mood for a holiday fete! And with crisp white tapers, sitting in simple copper holders, the design was transformed to a fresh look!

With so many styles to choose from, holiday parties are really a blast! Find your inspiration with these three winter designs (and you can check out some more here too). Here’s to a beautiful season!
