I love when we have clients that come to us for assistance with events other than weddings, especially small intimate get togethers. Working with Sarah & Neil was a blast. We brought in a custom table and chairs just to accommodate this fabulous multi course meal dinner party. Sarah is one stellar chef!
Loved the antler centerpiece that Sharon our fabulous floral deisgner created!
Hope you enjoy the Photos that the very lovely Kerri from Mary Wyar Photography captured! I spy chalkboard chanrgers and votives!

Classic Elegance was the Theme of our Tablescape for the Fall Bridal Fair at Dillards Franklin Park. I opted for a timeless and classy color palate of Black and White, and
utilized patterned fabrics as accents. Over the last couple of years we have seen this color scheme make a big appearance especially with accent colors such as apple green, pink, yellow, red and purple added to the mix. However, for this particular event we opted to omit any additional color and stick with the sophisticated palate.
What I love about this particular color combination is that
it is very chic and elegant however by incorporating patterns such as the stripes and polka dots it now adds a bit of fun and playfulness to the table.
This is the moodboard that I created which inspired our tablescape.
Anyone who has worked with us or that has seen us working an event, knows that we almost always coordinate our wardrobe with the colors of the event. With this being said, we felt it was only suiting to ask our wonderful friends over at Rent the Runway if that had anything that would coordinate with our scheme, and of course they did.

It is no doubt right now my favorite design style is shabby chic with a smattering of french country and cottage style mixed in. Although I would tend to say my personal style is more Modern, and simple with clean lines and stratigially placed statement pieces,I fell in love with the shabby chic style ever since I flipped through my first issue of Country Living magazine, oohing and ahhing over the beautiful, distressed finds. In fact, Target’s ‘Simply Shabby Chic’collection by Rachel Ashwell is a favorite ‘happy place’ of mine, and I could literally stand there admiring the countless sheets, comforters, curtains, throw pillows, and other beautiful shabby chic accents for an incredibly long time. There is something so beautiful about all the tiny imperfections. It is just beautiful. And, although the shabby chic style tends to incorporate lots of whites, creams, and ivories throughout, I like to throw in pops of color every so often just to keep things interesting. A splash of turquoise or hot pink can really brighten up a piece and make it your own.
You can imagine, then, how much I absolutely adore shabby chic wedding decor in particular, which combines a few of my favorite loves into one. Just follow our tried + true recipe: add one part shabby + equal parts chic, a handful of handmade, a dash of DIY and fluff until fabulous. It is perhaps the most imperfectly perfect style that exists. One of my favorite elements of shabby chic style within the wedding scene is how you can make a beautiful display out of a few key pieces. The key is to find soft palettes and hues to complement one another, and add a main focal point to make the display pop. The below shabby chic photo display is just one example which has stolen my heart. It lends some serious inspiration making it easy to DIY, even if you feel clueless about how to style your own display. I think the most important point when creating a photo display is to add lots of personal touches. The more personalized it is, the better. This way, guests can get a glimpse into your love story simply by stopping by and taking a quick peek. When I was planning my wedding, I had no idea how many unique display ideas were out there; if I had, this is definitely one I would have chosen to incorporate into my decor. Take a peek at some of my favorite shabby chic finds that I have discovered, they would be the perfect addition into your wedding and afterward in your love nest…
