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.

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

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

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

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.

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!

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.

berries

 

(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!

December Table Scape: Sequin Winter Wonderland

For this year’s holiday table scape, we opted out of the traditional red and green color palate. Although we love and adore these colors, we went for a glamorous nude, silver and white scheme. Plus, this color scheme translates well for the New Years holiday. Our brand new nude glimmer linen paired perfectly with this theme! We brought in our gunmetal chairs, silver place settings, sparkle pennant banners, vintage sheet music for place mats and DIY bottle brush Christmas tree centerpieces to tie in the rest of the look. (Stay tuned for a DIY post on our bottle brush trees!)

Well, let’s get to it – here’s our sequin winter wonderland!

DIY: Bottle Brush Christmas Trees

diy bottle brush trees

Liberty has been in the holiday spirit for a while now – fulfilling many orders for corporate holiday parties and more! So for our December table scape, we wanted to create a DIY centerpiece to match our new nude glimmer linen. After scouring the internet, we came across these pretties: Ombre Bottle Brush Trees!

anthro trees

Although they are available for purchase, we wanted to try our hand at making them ourselves (and putting our own unique spin on it). Take a look at our step-by-step guide to DIY Bleached Bottle Brush Trees:

Here’s what you’ll need to create the trees:

IMG_9053

Assorted Pine Trees (I used these found on Amazon)

Bleach

Fork or Tongs

Big Mixing Bowls

Cookie Sheet

Paper Towels

Colander

Dish Gloves

Apron

Remember – you are working with bleach in this project. Be very careful with your clothes and items around the trees and bleach bowls. Also, please properly dispose of the bleach when you are finished with it. 🙂

 

1) Fill the mixing bowls with 80% bleach and 20% water.

2) Carefully drop the trees into the mixture one by one with your fork or tongs.

IMG_9055

3) You will then see the bleach mixture start to turn green. Continue to move the tree around in the mixture so all sides have been equally soaked.

IMG_9056

4) Add more trees to the mixture. Let them sit for 3-5 minutes in the solution (use your own discretion on how white you want your trees).

IMG_9057

5) While your trees are soaking in the mixture, line your cookie sheet with paper towels. Once your trees are your desired color, pull them out with your tongs or fork and place them on the cookie sheet to dry.

IMG_9058

6) Once your trees have dried for a few minutes, place them in a colander using the tongs and rinse them under warm water in your sink.

7) Place them on some more paper towels to dry on your counter. I let mine dry overnight and let them dry on an old towel just to make sure it wouldn’t discolor any fabric I set them on.

8) Style them on your mantle, table, or any little nook in your house! Here’s our take:

In the end, we chose not to use the glitter on the trees since our table was very sparkly already. But we may end up re purposing them next year 🙂

We hope you enjoy this festive little project! Show us your DIY Bottle Brush Trees in the comments!

Peace & Joy,

November Table Scape – Give Thanks

As the weather gets a chill in the air, we turn our fireplaces on and our families gather around the table – we know the holiday spirit is alive and well. But before St. Nick comes down the chimney with glee, we have one very important holiday to celebrate – Thanksgiving! Here at Liberty, we chose a very rustic-meets-modern table scape using our charcoal panama linen, copper chargers and more! The copper and charcoal color scheme mixed with centerpiece greenery is one of our favorite looks for fall. The place card and window backdrop lettering was made possible by our resident calligrapher (and Account Coordinator by day), Emily M.! Take a look at our table inspiration below and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Be Grateful. Thankful. Blessed.

Dia de los Muertos Theme – October Table Scape

Happy October! For this month’s table we decided on bold and bright colors to go with a Dia de los Muertos theme! We are loving the look of sugar skulls and decided to incorporate this into the decor. With the help of our good friends at Paper Source, we opted for sugar skull banners, centerpieces and our favorite – paper flowers! We topped the modern look off with our Chicago Glasses, Square China, Gunmetal Chairs & more. Check it out!
