If you can’t decide which area to use a rental item, use it for both areas if the timing works!

Repurposing your rentals is a great way to save $$ and create a full atmosphere. Have your coordinator move items in between ceremony and cocktail hour - so you can enjoy the rental item in more ways than one 🥰

I alwaaays tell my couples that they can choose to just elevate their head table Vs the entire wedding guest tables. This is a great way to save $$$!

For Rachael + Tyler’s wedding, they opted for our woven placemats, vintage gold flatware, and taupe glassware and it was the PERFECT, simple + beautiful way to make the head table so special 😍

I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again… don’t be afraid to do something different for your wedding!

This is a day to have FUN. And be creative (or let your vendors be creative!). It’s a day to let your personality shine through.

If you and your fiancé love Arizona, bring the desert to your big day! If you both love rock and roll, add some creative touches throughout.

This day is about YOU TWO. Who cares what’s popular or trending on Pinterest? Sure, use it for INSPIRATION. But that’s it. Put your own little spin on things and I promise, you’ll thank me later 😘

I say go for making your head table or sweetheart table extra special. That’s what will show up in your photos the most… so why not set it apart from the crowd?

Besides… do guests REALLY remember the details of their table? No probably not 😬 Their memory will be of the entire event. So if budget is your concern, leave the super special details to what YOU will remember most 🤍

Convinced yet? Let’s chat about our head tables packages!

Often times my design ideas come from one single item.

For this summery citrus picnic… it was when I walked past this super loud fabric in a pile of muted linens. It literally jumped off the shelf into my cart saying “you HAVE to use me!”

I knew it was a risk, because the napkins alone, are kind of sort of BOLD, unique, and takes a special kind of tablescape to pull off the look.

As soon as I walked out of the store with fabric in hand, the ideas kept flowing, and flowing, and flowing until I ended up with this beautiful array of bright, summery colors. And boy am I SO happy with how it turned out. 🍋🍊🌼🌸

So moral of the story? Don’t be afraid to be BOLD, or try something different, and definitely let that one seemingly minor detail inspire you!

My favorite area to style is a tablescape, because there are ENDLESS possibilities as to what I can create.

I mean, even just swapping out the napkins for something fun Vs plain... makes a huge impact. Am I right? 😏

So what do you say? Wanna have some fun for your head table or sweetheart table?! Or even a dinner party with you and your pals?

We have tablescape packages in our curated collections up on our site! 🤩
