Our first display table was a mock sweetheart table. We used our 36″ round pedestal table and drapes it in a black satin linen and paired with with silver napkins and chiavari chairs. With a little help from some loose greenery, flowers, lanterns and an old wine crate, we made this table look wedding ready!

Behind the sweetheart table we hung a birch branch with burgundy ribbons and more greenery to create a focal point. (Plus is makes an amazing backdrop for photos!)

Our next table display is a rustic glam inspired table. We started off with out 9′ long farm table and lined the center of the table with tapered and pillared candles, birch chunks and branches, and beer bottles with white flowers.  We then added tons of gold accents to really make this table shine!

Wedding At Springfield Museums

Chiavari Chairs and Wedding Rentals Springfield Museums

That’s right; we had the opportunity to work on two different stylized shoots at the Springfield Museum. For this shoot, we teamed up with Sandra Costello Photography. Between Sandra and our event coordinator they designed a mock wedding. The fake ceremony and reception took place in the Blake Court of the D’Amour Fine Arts Museum which had beautiful hard wood floors, high ceilings and elegant paintings on the walls. To match the theme in the room, we went with a renaissance theme.

We started off with a neutral champagne linen to blend with the current colors in the room. From there we added a bold copper napkin and gold chiavari chairs to add some color. However the real pop of color came from Durocher Florist. They created beautiful floral arrangements for the tables. We opted for heavy greenery loaded with blush and cream flowers. CJC Event Lighting put spot lights on the centerpieces and up light the walls with a blush tone.

The Boylston Room has 2 different indoor event spaces and an outdoor patio. The smaller of the 2 rooms was the perfect backdrop for a photo shoot put on by the Fox and Lantern. She used our mahogany chiavari chairs for the ceremony. The large mill windows let natural light brighten up the space!

The Fox and Lantern created a mock cocktail hour out on the patio. We supplied cocktail tables, chiavari bar stools and our plank bar to create a quaint cocktail reception. The plum linens matched the brick of the old mill building beautifully.

Too continue with the berry theme, the Fox and Lantern filled up our 1 liter glass carafes with juices.

The Boylston Room’s second space is larger and was the foundation of the reception part of this stylized photo shoot. Here the Fox and Lantern staggered our tuscan tables for guests seating and used our farm table and bench for the head table.

Winter Wonderland Wedding Ideas

Posted on: December 1st, 2017

Dreaming of a white wedding? (Literally a white wedding with tons of snow?) If so, here’s so Winter Wonderland Wedding ideas we love! 

Attire: The Bride can accessorize with a faux fur stole and don’t forget to keep your bridesmaids warm with pashminas. A velvet blazer for the Groom will be a chic accent piece!

Decor: Stick to rich, warm tones of berry reds, burgundy, and gold. Add some extra wintry romance with lots of greenery or even a few Christmas trees!

Atmosphere: Create a cozy setting for your guests with lots of candles or have the fireplace going. Get the illusion of falling snow with twinkle lights in a clear top tent.

Eats: Comfort foods are a must! Mini chicken pot pies or mac and cheese make great appetizers. A hot chocolate bar with mini bottles of baileys is the perfect way to keep your guests warm throughout the night!

Favors: What could be cuter than a mini Christmas tree to grow at home! Go for something sweet like a brownie mix jar or homemade mulled wine!

Chiavari Chair and Party Rentals: Woodsy inspired tablescape at the Western New England Bridal Show

We created a beautiful woodsy tablescape in our booth. We started with our Tuscan table which is a foot wider than a typical 8′ banquet table. The extra foot allowed us to have space for birch branches, birch pillars, small vases with miscellaneous white flowers and heavy greenery.

We paired this tables with our mahogany chiavari chairs and our nova solid navy tablecloth.

Plan For The Worst, Hope For The Best: Rain Edition

Posted on: November 2nd, 2017

“Plan for the worst, hope for the best” is a motto we live by.  With the ever changing weather in New England, rain is always an option so we encourage you to plan for it.  Here are a few simple ways to make sure that it “Doesn’t rain on your parade”! 

Choose Your Location Wisely

Location of both your ceremony and reception is critical. Survey your property and find a level area as rain does flow. Try to find an area that isn’t in a low part of your property as that will flood first.  

If you’re not familiar with the property, do your research. You can review local records to confirm that the area you choose is not in a flood zone or that it’s not prone to flooding. 

Also keep in mind, when dirt gets wet, it turns into mud… so try to avoid areas with more dirt than grass. 

Rent A Tent

If you don’t want to have your reception or ceremony under a tent unless it’s absolutely necessary, we recommend that you put a tent on a rain hold. When you have a tent on a rain hold, you have up until noon the day before delivery to let us know your final decision. 

Offer Easy Cleanup

If you get caught in a rain storm on your way home, you dry yourself off the second you walk in the door so why don’t you offer something for your guests to dry off with. You can create a cleanup station with dry towels. You can even purchase towels to match the décor and display them in neat designs. 

Stock the bathroom with things to freshen up such as moistened towelettes or baby wipes. Those will help with any mud splatter or running makeup.  

Dry Shoes for Wet Feet

Don’t make your guests spend the duration of your reception in wet shoes. If rain is in the forecast stock up in a variety of size flip flops. If you have enough notice, you can also get matching rain boots for your wedding party. They’ll make a cute photo opportunity! 

 

Embrace it!

They do say that rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck so we say, embrace it! Here are a few way to embrace the rain while still keeping with your decor.

Umbrellas: If you’re expect rain, buy a variety of umbrellas in your color scheme. (You can even use them as party favors if you want!) Seeing a sea of umbrellas will be much more pleasing to the eye if it looks uniform and intentional.

Shawls: Getting caught in the rain can lead to the chills at times. Have shawls thrown over seats or rolled up in a basket for guest to take and warm up with. 

Ponchos: These may cover up the outfit your guests have so carefully picked up but trust me, your guest would rather be dry then soaking wet. If planned ahead of time, you can have ponchos pre-printed and passed out as part of the wedding favors!

 

 

Backyard Wedding Tips

Posted on: October 28th, 2017

Backyard Wedding Tips

Are you recently engaged and are considering having a backyard tented wedding? If so, please keep these few tips in mind to ensure that your wedding goes just as planned! 

  • Always rent bathrooms. It doesn’t matter if you’re having a wedding of 50 or 200+ guests, you really don’t want that many people going in and out of your house. If you do plan to use your bathroom on top of renting portable restrooms, make sure you stock the bathroom with extra of the essential items. If you have a septic system, get it pumped prior to your wedding. 
  • Have a parking plan. If you don’t have the space to accommodate parking for your guests, consider having a shutter service from a  nearby parking lot. If it’s going to be tight parking on your property or a far walk, consider hiring valet services.  
  • Talk to your neighbors. If they aren’t being invited to your wedding, at least give them a heads up that you’re hosting your special day in your backyard, they may be a bit more lenient on the traffic and noise level. (They may even let you use their property for extra parking!)
