Venue 3Two Bridal Bazaar

The first weekend of March I had the pleasure of being part of the unveiling of the beautiful conservatory at Venue3Two. Venue3Two is an old mansion, turned even space that shares property with a horse stable. This place exudes class and has a Gatsby vibe. Could it be anymore magical!? The mansion is perfect for bridal or baby showers and the conservatory seats up to 200 guests.

Arielle Teft and Stephanie Parshall captured this beautiful day. I am so excited to share it with you!

I was lucky enough to have a space in the brand new conservatory. I partnered with some fabulous vendors to bring my rust-colored tablescape to life. Event Theory provided all the beautiful table top goodies. Fancy Fray lended the hairpin table and the coordinating lounge space. And last, but not least Cass and Jean Flower Co. KILLED it with the over-the-top centerpiece and installation on the ceremony backdrop. I hand died the window panels, designed the tablescape and painted the “programs.”

Hello February

Things are really heating up over here! We have so many little, exciting projects coming up this month! We are partnering with a few local businesses on fabulous installs, throwing a fourth birthday party for a special little someone (named Oliver) and prepping for a bridal show at the beautiful Venue3Two at the beginning of March, plus home projects and lots of fun client work!! Wow! I am exhausted just listing it all out! It’s going to be a fun month! Of course I’ll be brining you all along over on Instagram.

This mood board is for my bridal show area, because it’s way more than a booth, at Venue3Two. I get to create a tablescape, a backdrop and a lounge! I am pumped, but I have a lot of planning to do!!

February Mood Board

Blue + Blush Tablescapes

From deep moody blues, to happier cabana striped blues, mixed with blush it’s a winning combination. This color combo is one of my favorite tablescape trends. Actually, I wouldn’t even call it a trend, because this combo is timeless. I love how the photos below show how the palette can go from blooming spring, to perfectly summer, to darling painted gourds for fall and rich and velvety for winter. Do you have a go-to table color scheme?

SHOP THE LOOK

Setting the Table with Home Depot

Are you guys Project Runway fans? I've watched almost every season. I was inspired by fan-favorite challenge, the "unconventional challenge," for this series. If you're not familiar, contestants must find items to make their garments from an unconventional store, i.e. not a fabric store. Once they had to find items from a hardware store, once from a candy shop and one time in the trash of an office building. I didn't go that extreme, but I wanted to choose shop or store to find items for a tablescape that you wouldn't traditionally think of to shop for tabletop goods. For this first edition I went to good old Home Depot. I mean, I'm there every weekend anyway.  Some of these items I even had in my garage already. I wanted to illustrate that you don't have to drop big bucks at Pottery Barn to get a beautiful table (I still love you PB), with a little creativity, you can even shop your garage!

Setting the Table with Home Depot

Items used:

  • Drop cloth with left over black paint
  • plywood
  • concrete DIY planters (tutorial coming soon)

The beautiful dinnerware was supplied by my friends at L'entramise, a shop full of fabulous disposable dishes and silverware, so perfect for an outdoor party.  I used: dinner plate in grey smoke / flatware in jett / tinted water glass in jet / stemless white wine glass
