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!”

A Bohemian Inspired Wedding Shoot With A Touch Of Gold

At heart, we’re really somewhere between being in love with a laid-back bohemian look to the opposite and going for all glitzy and luxe, who can truly decide? Well, when MMD Events put together this styled shoot, a blend of boho cool with the perfect touch of gilded accents, we were beside ourselves! Scroll through to see just how everything came together.

Armature Works Tampa set the tone with their industrial style loft. Exposed brick, beautifully framed windows and endless natural light flooded the room giving it an inviting feel. The tablescape, set with a hanging arrangement of flowers running the length of the table by MMD Events, created a beautiful illusion against the impossibly tall ceilings of the venue.

We love how this table was set! Our Gold Metallic Forest created the canvas for the setting which was highlighted with shades of plum, fuchsia and red. MMD Events combined assorted vintage china with mirrored chargers and Moroccan-inspired colored glassware for a chic look.

The gorgeous hanging florals draped beautifully over the center of the table, hanging above a macrame runner decorated with an eclectic assortment of driftwood, crystals and gold geometric decor. Just look at those votive candles in mercury glass encased by delicate geometric shapes!

Tying everything together was the chair selection, a mix of French-style upholsted pieces from MMD Events’ collection. We adore a mix and match seating look so you can imagine we were over the moon to see high back chairs mixed in with wooden crossback chairs and plush upholstered seating. Bonus points for that luxurious sheepskin throw! Anyone else ready to take a seat at this table?

Fisher Island Wedding in Miami

Let’s be honest, we love nothing more than a Miami party (we might be biased) because where else can you throw outdoor soirees all year round? Since it’s still winter for our Northeast friends, we thought we’d warm their hearts with a stunning wedding straight from Fisher Island!

For starters, Fisher Island is a truly remarkable hidden gem for weddings in Miami. It’s a bit of a trek to get out there but completely worth the adventure! Just look at the backdrop it sets for this wedding. With its limestone floors and just-ornate-enough decor, it strikes the perfect balance of luxury and elegance for a celebration! The sweeping staircase, decorated with sculpture busts, opened up to the escort card table, topped with a blooming arrangement of flowers from Petal Productions.

When you stepped outside, views of the water surrounded guests as they took their place under a beautifully draped tent – which, did we mention had chandeliers sparkling overhead? Oh My! Occasions dressed the tables in our Preston Bailey Collection Champagne Iris and Crystallize Pebbles linens, creating a beautiful effect throughout the space! Pair that look with tall floral arrangements from Raffi and Petal Productions and the room was truly aglow!

As the party kicked off, lounge furniture from Elements and Accents came into view with a lovely assortment of vintage-inspired pieces and white leather decor, a great place for party goers to rest between songs! Lucky for us, Erika Delgado Photo was there all night to capture the fun. You know how it is in Miami, the party never stops!

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!

Winter Wedding Ideas Inspired by Suiting

This one’s for the guys. The guys with their peak lapels and shawl collars, perfectly tied ties and just shined shoes. And the guys with their suits. Oh their suits! We so often overlook what grooms are wearing, assuming all suits and tuxedos are created equal so when we stumbled upon The Black Tux and saw their incredible suit and tuxedo assortment…we were impressed! Their suits come in such a breadth of styles and colors, looking over their selection we wondered, what would a winter wedding look like if inspired by a groom’s suit? Scroll through to see our three favorite color palettes and find out who wore it best…

The elusive midnight tuxedo, a big trend at the moment and we’re all about it as a modern upgrade on your traditional black tux. For the perfect mix we love a midnight tuxedo with a black lapel accent and it pairs perfectly with our Midnight Parker. A geometric patterned linen in just the right color combination. Navy has always been a wedding color palette favorite and we especially love it for winter weddings with a pop of Marsala (we’re big fans of Marsala). If you’re feeling super swanky, maybe don a Marsala-hued smoking jacket to pair with our Wine Velluto linen.

Maybe you’re ditching the cold weather for a tropical wedding in Miami – we can’t blame you – and a more colorful wedding palette. We’re totally feeling shades of olive green, to fit right in with the lush foliage, anchored with black details, to keep it classy. Go all in on the full black tuxedo or swap the jacket for an emerald green and you’ll feel at one with the tropics. As for tabletop, keep it light without losing the elegance. We love the idea of a patterned linen, like our Honeydew Palomino linen, on one table style mixed with a combination of our Apple Metallic Burlap and patterned Black Ink Napkin on the other style. That’s a winter wedding in the tropics!

And if you’re going to a destination spot for your winter wedding perhaps you’ve landed in New Orleans just in time for Mardi Gras! Let’s embrace the location with a palette in traditional shades of plum (and maybe even Ultra Violet). We’re so into a grey suit, it really anchors the look, and creates a great base for a tablescape. If you want to add that Nola flair to your party we like the Preston Bailey Collection Off White Shimmer or the Natural Mini Koi to give it that sparkle! Or really embrace the French Quarter with a fleur-de-lis motif, like our Plum Neiman linen. Of course dress for the occasion, perhaps a head to toe Rose colored suit, a perfect match for our Rose Velluto linen. Laissez les bon temps rouler!

Black and Gold Décor Inspiration for New Years Eve

It’s that time again, the end of the year and preparing to welcome in 2018 with a bang! Last year we were all about bright colors for the celebration, while this year we’re really feeling the gold love. Anchor down those metallics with some luxe black details and we are ready to party!

We worked with Rodri Studio on this lavishly elegant look, full of rich metallic and cascading orchids. The table was set with our Black and Gold Koi linen giving us the perfect base to build this look on. Rodri Studio gave the tablescape a modern feel with square mirrored pedestals topped with minimal arrangements of white flowers, including a centerpiece of cascading white orchids.

Keeping with our gold motif, we added in gilded tabletop accents such as our Clear Charger with Gold Rim and Stone Metallic Faux Dupioni Napkin paired with gold flatware. As for seating, mixing and matching two styles gave the table a fun added dimension! Our Rose Gold Phoenix Chair, an exclusive design, ran down the table with our Gold High Back Wing Chairs anchoring the ends.

Combining a stellar sequin linen with simply chic décor, we think this table is just the place we want to ring in the new year!

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!

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!

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!
