Nashville Rehearsal Dinner With A Georgia Twist

When Madeline and Gardner Heaner were planning their rehearsal dinner and post-toast party to compliment their stunning wedding, they knew Acme Feed & Seed in downtown Nashville would be the perfect place. The Groom’s mother granted their wedding planner, Big Events Wedding, complete creative control to plan these events with only one stipulation: Give homage to their Georgia home and nearby hunting camp where the couple had shared so many wonderful memories.

The event got a taste of home with Georgia peaches in the salad and authentic southern brisket for an entrée. Deer antlers adorned the bar and gnarly wood tablescapes added a hunting-camp-chic flair. With beautiful Fruitwood Farm tables, Tuscan Bentwood chairs, and Silver Beaded Rim Glass chargers from Liberty Party Rental, linens by BBJ Linen, draping by Visual Elements and lighting by Bright Events, Acme Feed and Seed was transformed for the Heaner Rehearsal Dinner. Lastly, the elegant and understated floral arrangements were neutral with pops of peach–again, a nod to the couple’s Georgia roots.

The first night of their memorable wedding weekend was a perfect jumpstart to Madeline and Gardner’s life together. We are so thankful these two allowed us to help make their Georgia vision come true in the heart of downtown Nashville!

3 Tips For Planning a Rehearsal Dinner – from Molly Sohr of Big Events Wedding

  1. Try to choose a design and color scheme that doesn’t take away or clash with the BIG night the next day.
  1. Always keep the bride and groom’s personality in mind and create personal touches!
  1. Choose a menu that is not repetitive of – or too similar to – the wedding meal. Mix up your cuisine for your guests enjoying both evenings with you.

Navy and Coral Wedding Inspiration – July Table Scape

With the 4th of July, we wanted to incorporate some red white and blue into this month’s table scape, but we did it with a twist! We went with the classic navy blue and coral! Inspired by this classic watercolor wedding on The Perfect Palette, we scooped up our gold accents and interpreted the look Liberty-style.

Early Summer Table Scape – Luncheon Luxe

Light, fresh and airy is what we went for in this month’s table scape. Late spring/early summer calls for garden parties and outdoor events galore, so we decided to decorate our front table for an afternoon luncheon. Inspired by cool, calm Ralph Lauren blues and stripes, this table scape incorporates a few rustic touches into the classic look. The wooden embroidery hoops give a nod to vintage style while the burlap and wood elements bring in a fresh outdoorsy texture. Classic ivory and clean lines of the satin stripe linen provide a preppy touch to the table scape. And the invitations designed by The Paper Place bring the whole look together!

Take a look!

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!

March Table Scape – Earthy Spring Green

March is here and Spring is in the air! With St. Patrick’s Day AND Easter falling in March this year, we are prepared for a fun-filled event season! For this month’s table scape, we went with an earthy look using natural materials such as our natural panama linen, walnut wood chargers, macrame elements and even moss place mats! We got the idea from our friends at Ninth & Everett who used moss place mats in a gorgeous styled shoot recently… more on that later! Hanging macrame planters, copper and succulents are all the rage for Spring, so we just HAD to add these decor elements to our design. Plus – we made the hanging planters ourselves! Look out for a DIY tutorial coming soon. 🙂

Take a look at our styled sweetheart table:

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!

IMG_6462small

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!

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:

Plus, we tried a new heart napkin fold! Stay tuned for a DIY coming soon!

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!)

blankets

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!
