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.

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:

DIY Heart Napkin Fold

Image-1

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we’re bringing you a tutorial – DIY Heart Napkin Fold! We took full advantage of this napkin fold on our February display table. This heart napkin fold would look great on your sweetheart table for Valentine’s Day, or even for a baby shower! Here’s how we did it:

1) Set your square napkin out on a flat surface.

2) Fold the napkin in half to create a triangle – the two opposite points will be joined together.

3) Fold each of the long corners up and to the middle point.

4) Tuck each of the top points under slightly to create a heart shape, leaving the back piece up.

5) Gently flip the napkin over.

6) Fold the top point down so it touches the bottom point.

7) Flip the napkin over one more time. You will see the heart begin to take shape.

8) Tuck the side corners under so the sides have a curved look. And there you have it – a heart napkin fold!

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!

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!

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!

September Table Scape

This September, we’re trying to hang on to summer as much as possible by creating a light, crisp, modern table scape for our Green Hills Design Center showroom window! Here’s a word from our Marketing & Design Manager, Alyssa:

“I was inspired by my daughter’s nursery and created a pastel table scape with modern geometric touches mixed with natural wooden elements. The shiny gold centerpieces and majestic napkins created a great contrast against the natural wood chiavari chairs and white panama linen. I also wanted to incorporate a tile place card and these light mint tiles beneath the gorgeous purple calligraphy (created by our own Account Coordinator, Emily M.!) did the trick! I topped off the look with a pastel triangle garland, natural wood coasters and stirrers.”

We loved this look so much, we featured it in our styled shoot at Houston Station (more on that later!). This look would be great for a late summer luncheon or a baby or wedding shower! Take a look:
