We are so excited to introduce you to a new feature we’ll be doing here on Bespoke Decor’s blog! Introducing you to our newest, greatest finds. We are constantly adding stock (like, daily) so there’s no way we can keep up with it all but when we find something we just can’t get enough of- it’s great to be able to share the excitement! We’ll show you our new images of the pieces (freshly cleaned up and ready to rent!) as well as suggest some ways you can use that piece in your event. Ready for the first?
Dear Elizabeth. The Elizabeth wing back chairs (there’s 2!) were such a score of a find when we were down in Portland. Look at those legs! They’re so beautifully detailed, which we love with a simple linen upholstery. For our stock images we paired these with our new marble table (soon to be added to online inventory!) but they’d look just as lovely sandwiching a vintage crate on end, as a signing chair, in a lounge setting, or mixed with seating at an outdoor reception. We simply can’t wait to see these wing back chairs in action! We’ll be sure to share photos of them in use when they go out (and go out, they will! Elizabeth is such a socialite).
Alright, you guys! I just can’t get over the dark moody florals I’m seeing this season. Our last round up was all about white pumpkins and was so nice and bright, but I have been itching to get back to the dark side. I’ve rounded up some beautiful bouquets that are either completely dark and moody or have some serious pumps of dark that bring such character to lighter bouquets. Ready to swoon with me?
LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM:
ONE: Is anyone here a SYTYCD or Dancing with the Stars fan? This is Whitney’s wedding bouquet… and it’s a STUNNER. That trailing foliage. *sigh*
TWO: Purples are one of those colours that play SO well with the dark and moody theme. This one’s wild and wandering shape is near perfection.
THREE: This bouquet is actually a light and neutral bouquet without the darker foliage. The deep hued leaves are such a simple way to play into the darks!
FOUR: I’m such a sucker for black centred anemones and this bouquet plays off the dark centres with some larger dark blooms. Also… those dark lips!
FIVE: This is the darkest I’ve found that doesn’t look a single bit tacky. It’s lovely in fact! So now you know you can go *almost* black in every sense of the word and still be lovely.
SIX: Did you know that succulents could be dark and moody? Oh, they totally can! And this beautifully organic bouquet is amazing. Period.
Do you have a favourite? I’m still swooning over Whitney’s. But those anemones are a close second.
I’m sure you’ve noticed, we’re diving into fall and loving every minute of it. Today we’re bringing a super simple 2 minute DIY to dress up your autumnal table. Yep, these gold lettered autumn leaves place cards. And oh, they’re even more shiny and stunning in real life.
There’s only one thing you need to make these. It’s our dear friend, Liquid Gold. Grab it at Michaels along with a round tip paint brush and get painting. We totally love how simply this transforms a matte fall leaf to a shiny textured gem of a place card.
We painted directly on the leaves BUT if you are planning to make these for a wedding and want to prepare ahead of time, the leaves won’t last too long. There is a trick to make them keep longer though! Clear sealer. Our friend Colleen shares all about how she uses it to keep leaves fresh right here.
What do you think? Would you try this out? It’s such a simple way to up your fall tablescape game. They’re perfect for wedding place cards (you know that was our first thought!) but they’d also be lovely for a Thanksgiving table.
If you try out this DIY we would LOVE to see it in action! Tag us @bespokedecor on social.
