ISES Box Truck Competition

A few months ago, the International Special Events Society asked us to participate in a Box Truck Battle – designing an event-like space inside one of our company box trucks using 2016 wedding trends. We accepted the challenge and came up with a “Garden Glam” themed design!

Take a look at the gorgeous photos by Sebastian Smith:

Utilizing hints of greenery through the faux grass backdrop (yes, you can rent faux grass flooring from Liberty!), leafy centerpieces and topiary trees (courtesy of Teasley’s Interiors), the garden portion of our design was a hit!

We mixed in more of the glam theme with our glimmer cake table linen and gold tableware elements and even added the elegant draping and chandelier by Southern Sky Event Lighting. And please notice the cake in the back (using a gold foil technique!) by Triple Crown Bakery!

And after all of the votes were counted, we won the grand prize! We are truly honored to win the title and we could not have done it without our incredible, hard-working team!

DIY Heart Napkin Fold

Image-1

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we’re bringing you a tutorial – DIY Heart Napkin Fold! We took full advantage of this napkin fold on our February display table. This heart napkin fold would look great on your sweetheart table for Valentine’s Day, or even for a baby shower! Here’s how we did it:

1) Set your square napkin out on a flat surface.

2) Fold the napkin in half to create a triangle – the two opposite points will be joined together.

3) Fold each of the long corners up and to the middle point.

4) Tuck each of the top points under slightly to create a heart shape, leaving the back piece up.

5) Gently flip the napkin over.

6) Fold the top point down so it touches the bottom point.

7) Flip the napkin over one more time. You will see the heart begin to take shape.

8) Tuck the side corners under so the sides have a curved look. And there you have it – a heart napkin fold!

February Table Scape – Valentine’s Day Sweetheart Table

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. If you don’t have plans, there’s still time to rent some tabletop items for your at-home Valentine’s Day party!  This year we chose to mix romance with playfulness in our Valentine’s Day table scape in at our Green Hills Showroom! Our brand new Ivory Rosette Linen is a great way to dress your cake or sweetheart table for two. Mix in some shades of pink (we used our Watermelon and Raspberry Majestic Linen and add a touch of romance with gold tableware accents and Gold Chiavari Chairs. The conversation hearts along the table runner add an element of fun. See more of our Valentine table photos:

3 Winter Tablescape Trends

While we were cozying up in our warm blankets and sipping on hot tea with the snow storm last week, we started dreaming up winter tablescapes! Take a look at our top 3 winter table trends:

1) Touches of burgundy have been a huge hit this winter! Styling your centerpieces with objects like candelabras and cranberries rather than your normal floral arrangements is a great way to get creative with your winter tablescape.

(Plus, draping cozy blankets on the backs of guests’ chairs is the perfect way to make your guests feel comfortable!)

2) Mixing metallics is a winter must-have! A great way to do this is through sequin linen (which we now carry!), mercury glass votives and flatware. Silver, gold, copper, rose gold are all great metallics to mix and match to bring out the winter vibes in your next event!

3) Creative and personalized paper decor. Instead of a traditional table runner, hand-written lyrics on butcher paper gives off a creative and romantic feel. Vintage sheet music used as place mats also gives off an elegant feel for your winter wedding. Plus, being in Music City, we are all about using hints of music in your wedding decor!
