Airy Spring Wedding – April Table Scape

It finally feels like Spring this week! If any of you had a wedding this past weekend, you had perfect weather! Outdoor weddings are on the rise, so we came up with a rustic elegant outdoor wedding table scape this month.

This year we are featuring some of our friends in the Nashville wedding industry. And we chose to shine the light on Southern Sky Event Lighting to break the ice!

We’ve worked on countless events with owner, JD including our winning ISES Box Truck Competition design. Plus, we’re neighbors at our Loft at Houston Station location!

Without further ado, here’s our interview with JD!

What made you start Southern Sky Event Lighting? 

I have background in lighting and have always done lighting with my DJ services. Working with many planners around Nashville, they started asking us to do more lighting at events. So in 2011, we started Southern Sky to provide more lighting options for brides and planners.

Whimsical Moon & Stars Baby Shower

When our very own Jr. Account Manager, Emily Mak, created a swoon-worthy baby shower for her dear friend, we just HAD to share the photos with you! With the whimsical moon & stars theme, Emily transformed the home into a sweet celestial space! Using Liberty Party Rental gold ripple salad plates, blush matte satin linen, silver glimmer linen and the glass beverage server, the shower was out of this world. 🙂

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.

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!

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!
