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!

Fall Wedding Inspiration in New England

Do you dream in the colors of the fall? We do (at least when seasonally appropriate, like here)! And lucky for us, Ivy and Honor does too. Their recent styled shoot, inspired by real family heirlooms, is a gorgeous palette of cornflower blues accented with deep reds and bright copper tones. Get ready to fall in love…

First things first, The Black Horse Inn was the perfect setting for this shoot. Its lovely landscape and ornate detailing could not have been more suited to the concept. We’re in love with the creeping ivy and the wrought iron fence playing backdrop to the couple’s day.

A charming ceremony space, marked by a vintage desk, decorated with a flowing runner and heirloom Bible, and a festive wreath, marked just the spot to exchange eternal vows.

The table was set in a French blue hue, using our Sky Western linen, decorated in contrast with florals, from Le Fleur du Jour, in deep fall colors and delicious sprigs of rosemary. The look was both simple and modern, tying in the vintage feel with delicate rentals from Bella Villa Shop, while maintaining a minimalist sensibility on the calligraphy menu cards, from Lady G Paperie.

And the couple, the groom looking dashing in The Black Tux and the bride looking ethereal in a Wren Bridal gown, wrapped up the loveliest day with a signature whiskey cocktail, cheers!

Jewel Tone Velvet Linens for Fall and Winter Weddings

There’s that special something in the air letting us know, Fall is right around the corner and Winter is coming right after! We’re ready to feel the temperatures drop and the indoors get extra cozy! To be honest, we love this time of year when it comes to designing weddings and events!

With that in mind, we are feeling gemstones, jewel tones and the soft touch of velvet for this wedding
season. Last winter we were all about Marsala, this year we are going the whole assortment of colors!

For those looking to lighten up, we found the perfect shade of Turquoise for the fall. It’s deep enough to sparkle like an Aquamarine and bright enough to warm us up too!

Paired with our natural wood Verona Chairs, the Turquoise Velluto has a rustic sensibility to it perfect for an outdoor fall wedding. Give it even more of a boho bride style by adding in pretty pink accents like these raw crystals. With floating candles and the softest touch of blush blooms, the Velluto fabric sets a perfect canvas for this design. Just like this setting, it’s a great way to bring cool fall feels to a tropical setting!

Now, for those looking to go all in on fall colors, we love a deep Ruby red like our Wine Velluto. It sets the mood for a lively holiday feast or a romantic wedding reception.

Paired with our French country-inspired linen Maison Dining Chairs, this color palette creates a rich
atmosphere for dinner guests, especially when set against beautiful blooming Bougainvillea!

Bring in more of those gorgeous jewel tones in purples and oranges across the tabletop and use copper toned accents to tie the look together!

So whatever your event is this season, bring in those fall feelings with an array of gemstone-hued linens in soft velvet-inspired fabrics to really amp up the party. Trust us, we know how to host a good one!

Destination Wedding Inspiration in Provence, France

Oh boy, you are in for a real treat today, all the way from Provence, France! It’s no surprise that we love a destination wedding (see here dreamy beachside nuptials in Tulum, Mexico) and this styled elopement from Cassie Cherneski of Flaire Weddings and Events is no exception!

First of all, Provence, you are gorgeous! The setting for this one, at the Abbaye Saint Eusebe was an
incredible location. From the elegantly simple ceremony inside the abbaye to the perfectly manicured
grounds where the table was set, the backdrop could not have felt more magical.

Dinner was set between the Cypress trees right at magic hour with the setting sun casting dreamy shadows across the grounds. Inspired by the natural palette of the region, with its medieval stone walls and fields of lavender abound, Cassie designed a centerpiece overflowing with pastel shades of lilac, blush and ivory accented with delicate greenery.

Our Lilac Velluto linen, with its soft velvet feel, set the base for the table with a wispy runner flowing in the wind, a nod to the linen textiles of France. And to give it a touch of modern sensibility driftwood chargers and black flatware, from The Treasury Rentals by Emily Grace Designs, were combined with romantic taper candles in assorted brass candlesticks.

And the lovely couple, the bride in her two-piece gown from Eddy K Italia and the groom in a perfectly
tailored suit, was the epitome of romance on this gorgeous day. We’ll definitely keep this one in mind as we gear up for fall, with this beautiful color palette and velvet inspiration on the brain!

Summer Road Trip with Nüage Designs!

What a trip we have had! From our hometown of Miami, up the east coast, out west to California with a final stop in New Orleans, we have had one fun time with our event industry friends. We had a chance to see some of their newest wedding and event designs and pepper in some local advice for summer fun.

Check out the lookbook below to relive the journey for yourself!

Traditional Weddings Inspired by History

Inspiration comes from in many ways. Often we are looking for what’s current and what’s coming when we should be exploring what’s in the past to find something refreshing. We did just that when we looked back to our own history here at home to find some traditional wedding inspiration to pair alongside an elegant styled shoot from Lindsay Bishop Events.

So, you can imagine our delight looking through this impeccable styled shoot from Lindsay Bishop, who not only planned and designed but also put together the lush florals for the day!

From a navy and white color palette to ornate silver décor, the details are everything in this inspirational wedding photo shoot! Clay Austin Photography captured every little thing not just on digital but on film as well – be still my heart!

We’re obsessing over the tabletop silver, from the serve ware to the punch bowl, borrowed from Terrace Oaks Antique Mall and Gryphon Estate Silver, and how perfectly it pairs with the simply sophisticated china from Sasha Nicholas and against our Navy Jamestown toile linen. Add to that Hatch Cove Designs’ stationery suite with grey-hued calligraphy, a dainty touch to tie it all together!

Of course this all came to life in the heart of Charleston at The Old Exchange, a location oozing with history’s sweet secrets. From cobblestone streets to old seaports, we’ll be keeping an eye for historical inspiration from here on out!

A Red, White and Blue Wedding Done Perfectly!

In the spirit of Fourth of July, we’re feeling in a very red, white and blue mood. What better way to channel this inspiration than with a gorgeous wedding from Tracie Domino Events!

This dreamy Tampa wedding, at the Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club, is the epitome of elegance with a perfect touch of fun. The setting alone really sets the mood – a mix of mossy trees and perky palms!

Stepping inside after the ceremony, the ambiance was very laid-back with a casual lounge-style reception. MMD Events did an incredible job with the floral and décor, really tying in the blue and white hues with the ornate red carpet for a gorgeous effect. We love how they combined different shades and prints in blue, using our Navy Khalo and Amaya Blue Print pillows against Sky Western and Turquoise Velluto solid pillows. On the scattered cocktail tables, Slate Plaster and Wine Velluto played together beautifully, almost as if they were extension of the venue itself!

Jacqui Cole Photography captured this one perfectly, reminding us that there is more than just one way to bring a red, white and blue palette to life!

Summer Neutrals

As much as we gravitate towards bright, bold colors in the summer, there are times when we just need a little palette cleanser to tame the heat. We found just the perfect neutral summer look with this Gulf Coast dinner at Trebeache in Santa Rosa Beach!

This gorgeous event, planned to perfection by It’s a Shore Thing, and designed with a Zen-garden in mind by Florals by the Sea, is the chic summer we’re dreaming of! Taking a seat at this gorgeous lounge set up, mixing wicker chairs with metal and glass accent tables from H&M Event Rentals, we definitely feel the positive vibes coming through.

Lacher’s Lens Photography captured each refreshing orchid arrangement, crafted by Florals by the Sea, paired with organic driftwood elements against our Pearl Metropolitan linens. Perfectly folded White Hemstitch Napkins and white-washed chairs completed the crisp summer look!

We’re taking palette cues from this lovely night to inspire our Zen summer nights!
