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.”

Liberty Party Rental’s Loft at Houston Station

Back in April, our friends at Houston Station hosted an Open House! It was here that we proudly debuted our new space The Loft at Houston Station! Take a look at our before & after pics!

Here’s what our space looked like before – a very blank canvas!

And here’s how we transformed it!

We chose Ikea and West Elm shelving to display all of our china, chargers, glassware and flatware. Plus, notice the beautiful teacup & flatware chandelier from Hester & Cook!

We were so inspired by a display at West Elm and whimsical design photos on Pinterest that we had to try the chair wall hangings ourselves!

We went with a sage and coral themed farm table mixed with some of our vintage inspired china.

Our miss-matched china display was the perfect backdrop for our 4′ white wooden bar!

The rustic metal door serves as a great focal point for our Radius and Axis lounge furniture!

Rustic wooden ladders were purchased from the Nashville Flea Market as a display for our wide variety of napkins and chair ties!

How To: DIY Gold Glitter Centerpiece Bottles

Over here at Liberty, we are loving everything gold, shiny, and glittery! When the opportunity came to decorate a display table for an event, we let the glitz and glam loose! How did we do it? By spray painting and glittering bottles gold! Check out our DIY Gold Glitter Bottle Tutorial:

DIY Gold Glitter Bottles

What you’ll need:

Newspaper or Dropcloth

Gold Glitter

Gold Spray Paint

Empty Jars and Wine Bottles

Spray Glue (we used Elmer’s Spray Adhesive)

Tape

Paper Towels

Gloves

Medium to Large Bowl

1) Start by laying down some newspaper and spray paint each bottle. Remember to hold the spray can far away from the bottle to get an even coat. Let them dry.

2) Next, fill the bowl with your gold glitter. Take a bottle and spray it with your adhesive spray and lift it into your glitter bowl. Sprinkle the glitter generously over the entire bottle. You can respray some spots you’ve missed with your adhesive spray and re-glitter. Set aside on newspaper when done.

3) Now, if you want to get fancy with it, tape a paper towel around a bottle and leave a few inches showing at the bottom. Make sure your paper towel line is straight. Spray just the bottom with your adhesive spray then coat with gold glitter. Let dry then remove paper towel.

4) Voila! You now have a fancy collection of gold glitter centerpiece bottles!
