Palm Beach Chic Bridal Shower

When we heard one of our very own account managers, Emily Maksimowicz, was going to throw a bridal shower for her sister, we knew her design would not disappoint! Boy, were we right! Below, she tells us all about her inspiration behind this chic beachy theme.

“Being a Maid of Honor can be a daunting task, so when my sister got engaged earlier this year, I went into full planning mode. For her bridal shower, I knew I wanted to incorporate tropical elements since her and her fiancé recently moved to Florida. I decided that the theme would be ‘Palm Beach Chic’ filled with gold flamingos, palm leaves, and lots of stripes.

I love mixing and matching patterns and textures and thought that Liberty Party Rental’s bamboo folding chairs paired perfectly with striped linens alongside palm leaves tucked inside a pink balloon garland. And what tropical party is complete without a monogrammed bar stocked with frozen strawberry margaritas and citrus infused water?

There was a lot of DIY-ing involved filled with gold spray paint and balloon tying, but seeing my vision come to life and my sister’s face when she walked through the door made it all worth it.”

Fall Cocktail Recipe ft. Red Spirits & Wine and Frozen Exposure Photography

Bourbon Maple Apple Cider

We teamed up with our friends (and neighbors) Frozen Exposure along with local spirits shop Red Spirits & Wine to create a fall cocktail! Red provided all of the spirits and garnishes we needed to create a fall-tastic drink – Bourbon Maple Apple Cider. Each bottle of alcohol used can be found at their local shop in Belle Meade. The bourbon has been aged and actually stirred by the rocking on an east coast ship in the ocean! We thought that was the coolest story and we feel honored to even have such a bourbon grace our Bodega glassware!  Plus, Red Spirits & Wine delivers! So if you’re planning your wedding or even your holiday party, remember Red can bring the booze straight to your event! Take a look at the photos Frozen Exposure captured of our recipe below and keep scrolling to find out how you can make this drink at home!

DIY Gold Geometric Hanging Planters

DIY Gold Geometric Hanging Planters

If you saw our post on Navy and Coral Wedding Inspiration, then you may have noticed our gold geometric hanging planters in the window. Did you know they’re made out of strays? Yep, we DIYed those! Here’s the how-to:

DIY Hanging Geometric Planter

Materials:

Faux Airplants

Scissors

Straws (Gold or whatever pattern you’d like)

String or Twine

Spray Paint (optional)

Materials for DIY Hanging Geometric Planter

1) Cut straws to desired sizes – I cut one in half to make the top triangle portion and used two full-size straws for the bottom. String them in order on your twine and tie a tight knot at the top.

  Geometric Planter DIY

2) String another diamond exactly like the first one onto your twine and leave string at the top. Tie the two diamonds together to make a 3D shape.

  How to Make a Geometric Hanging Planter

3) Cut smaller pieces and secure the mid-section. Tie double knots at each point before adding the next straw onto the string.

 Instructions on how to make a geometric planter

4) Cut the loose strings on the ends except for the top hanging strings. Spray paint your desired color if you choose – be sure to cover every angle. 🙂

Lavender Sparkling Lemonade – Spring Cocktail Recipe

Lavender Sparkling Lemonade Spring Cocktail Recipe

We are so excited to share this feature series with you… we partnered with RED Wine & Spirits and Frozen Exposure Photography to give you a new cocktail recipe for each season!

Starting off, we have a new twist on a Sparkling Lemonade. Our goal was to bring out the Gatsby for Springtime, so we used our Embassy Champagne Bowls plus some of our assorted china and topped it off with a spritz of lemon to do the trick! Plus Steeplechase is coming up – this drink is perfect for this outdoor Spring event!

Frozen Exposure was kind enough to let us take over their studio upstairs from our Green Hills location for this shoot. Next time you visit us in Green Hills, you need to go up to the 3rd floor and visit their studio – the glitter and unicorn decor is so fun and Tanya and Bobby are such amazing people! We’ve enjoyed getting to know them over the past few months.

Mark from RED was kind enough to carefully craft each cocktail for us. And with over 30 years of bar tending experience, needless to say, he knows what he’s doing! RED provided a mix of local and foreign alcohol for us to create these wonderful cocktails. We highly recommend visiting their shop in Belle Meade for alcohol for your wedding, event or even your home liquor cabinet. 🙂

Without further ado, here’s RED’s take on the Lavender Sparkling Lemonade Cocktail!

LibertyRED-57

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 Cup of Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1/8 Cup of Bang Candy Company Lavender Simple Syrup (They’re local!)
  • 1 Bottle of Dry Champagne (we used Segura Viudas)
  • Lavender Shavings or Sprigs
  • Sliced Lemon for Garnish

LibertyRED-63

Step 1: Pour the Bang Candy Company Simple Syrup into your glass.

LibertyRED-66

Step 2: Pour the lemon juice into the glass. (We used our crystal creamer!)

Step 3: Fill the rest of the glass with champagne.

LibertyRED-74

Step 4: Garnish with a lemon slice and lavender shavings.

Step 5: Wear your derby hat and sip your drink! 🙂

DIY Macrame Hanging Planter

The Bohemian bug has hit Liberty Party Rental! If you saw our Earthy Spring Table Scape look, then you know we’ve been up to some macrame crafting! And we don’t want to keep it all to ourselves, we want to share how we made our DIY Macrame Hanging Planters!

Hanging Planter DIY

Step 1: First you’ll need some materials! After a quick trip to our Liberty Party Rental warehouse for some of our Roly Poly Votive Candles, we scooted over to our nearest Michael’s store for some more goodies including:

-A Spool of Thick Natural Cording

-Assorted Moss

-Votives & Candles

-Scissors

 

Macrame Crafts

Step 2: Measure out 8 pieces of the natural cording and fold them in half. Measure based on how low you want the planter to hang and add about 6 inches of room for knots and fringe at the bottom.

Macrame Hanging Planter

Step 3: Tie a knot at the very top of the loop. You will use this loop to hang the planter.

DIY Macrame Hanging Planter

Step 4: Pair the cords up and separate them into 4 different sections.

DIY Macrame Planter

Step 5: Tie small knots 2/3 of the way down the cords. Make sure the knots are even on all 4 cord sections.

DIY Macrame Hanging

Step 6: Next, separate the paired cords, and pair them with a cord in the set beside it. Tie a knot to make a V shape. Do this with all of the cords and the two on the ends will also be joined by a knot so you can start creating the circle pattern for your votive to sit in.

DIY Hanging Planter

Step 7: You can choose to repeat this knotting pattern, however, we stopped at this point and tied all of the cords together in one final knot. Clip the fringe to your desired length.

DIY Hanging Plant Macrame

Step 8: Arrange some moss into your votive and place the candle on top. Note: DO NOT LIGHT THE CANDLE. This is a fire hazard with the moss beneath it – this is only for looks. 🙂 Then place the votive into the cording and hang!

Spring Table Scape 6

We placed our Macrame Hanging Planters over our table scape with moss place mats!  They’re great to add to your Easter table design or Spring Wedding!
