Elegant White French-Inspired Baby Shower || As Seen In Martha Stewart Living

Elegant White French-Inspired Baby Shower || As Seen In Martha Stewart Living

Talk about a baby shower from French heaven! NYC Planner Tracy¬†Taylor¬†Ward and her mother Lauri Ward designed this incredible French baby shower at Upper Crust¬†in NYC that was just featured in Martha Stewart Living (!!!!). We normally don’t offer vintage furniture rentals NYC since we are based in Washington DC but she saw our pieces at the Claire Pettibone runway show in NYC and was set on having them for her big fete, so we made it happen! Her design using our neutral colored French collection was totally spot on. I loved EVERYTHING¬†about this etheral shower!!

We were excited for many of our¬†upholstered pieces with natural wood frames to make their debut at Tracy’s shower. We go to great lengths to hand-sand and refinish these tufted beauties to give them a fresh lease on life—not to mention reupholstering them in fresh, plush fabrics. Check out our new Madeline chairs, Harper tufted sofa, Peggy Sue end table and our Natural Farm table with turned legs below. ¬†These are pieces that were a labor of love to bring back to life, but we think it was totally worth it, don’t you??

So excited for our Natural Farm Table to shine here! ¬†You really can’t beat its texture in photos or in person! ¬†No glossy lacquer here. ¬†Each one of these tables is handmade from reclaimed wood. ¬†As you probably know, we are obsessed!

Tracy also used our vintage china and vintage tea cups for her guests. We love this look of this on our white washed round tables and on our natural farm tables!

To match the Natural farm tables, we built these custom natural bars with antiqued mirrors on them.  We have similar bars we constructed in gray, but wanted something that fit with the cohesive, amazing look of this shower.

A big congrats on Tracy and little Miss Carrigan! ¬†I love this pic of the parents to be–so sweet.

No creative detail was skipped at this spring fête!

Our Garden Style Florals:  Sneak Peak at Mackenzie and Josiah’s Wedding

Our Garden Style Florals: Sneak Peak at Mackenzie and Josiah’s Wedding

We had the huge honor of designing the lush flowers and providing upholstered and vintage rentals for Mackenzie and Josiah’s wedding this weekend at the Women’s National Democratic Club in Washington DC. The stunning bride Mackenzie was a dream to work with—she gave us the creative freedom to create loose, garden inspired florals as well as help design the ceremony layout with all upholstered furniture (yes, major heart eyes!). We loved the way everything turned out and are so happy that she and her guests did too! And will you check out her custom made dress?! That color!!

Fall Backyard Wedding in Jewel Tones || Dressing A Farm Table with Hanging Greenery || Charlottesville, VA

Get ready to swoon over this fall backyard wedding–with our reclaimed wood farm tables and lots of chic details. When Stephanie contacted us about her fall wedding in Chartlottesville, Viriginia, we were all over it the minute she said backyard, jewel tones, and farm tables! She had a vision for a warm, trendy wedding that wasn’t overly rustic with jewel tones and accents of rose gold, and let me just say, she nailed it! We were so excited to see it featured on Style Me Pretty!

We love the way Stephanie hung greens above our reclaimed wood farm tables. It’s one of our favorite ways to favorite ways to make guests ooh and ahh. It not only creates interesting height, but an unexpected pop of lush greens that will leave people oooohing and ahhhing. Adding in the hanging terrariums is another. Stay tuned for our next blog post on How to Dress a Farm Table!
