Earlier this spring, we had the honor of styling a Bridal Breakfast to kick-off an amazing wedding day for one of our sweet clients. They wanted to play up Ouisie’s Table’s french inspired restaurant and create a unique flair with dainty, vintage, and French touches. We rented our vintage assorted tea cup and saucer sets, dinner plates, and chargers for guest’s place settings. We created custom handkerchief tied chair sashes as well as beautiful silk and lace table linens. Guests sipped morning mimosas in our vintage champagne goblet collection that are beautifully and delicately etched with floral designs. We styled around beautiful pink peony arrangements from Lisa at Wedding Flowers by Lisa in the centerpieces by using oversized, decorated books, vintage books, crocheted doilies, touches of butterflies, and miniature bird cages and Eiffel Towers. Each guest had a custom made place card made by ASC of old, wooden spools wrapped in colorful lace and a coordinating name card on top. We also created a table with “Postcards from paris” for each guest to write well-wishes for bride-to-be, Becca, on adorable French-inspired “vintage” post cards. This breakfast was thoughtful and beautiful. Thank you so much to Alia of Belle of the Ball for referring your client to us for this special opportunity. We truly enjoyed assisting the Kent family. Also a huge thank you to Joe Cogliandro for sharing these images with us for our blog.
Now for the detail shots.

We had such a good time gearing up for the House of Blues Bridal Show that was August 12 here in Houston. We have been so busy moving warehouses and juggling events, it was awesome to get creative and be present for this event to showcase what we have to offer, mingle with local industry folks, and meet some of the sweetest inquiring brides and their families. We truly love what we do. Here are some sneak peeks at the show in case you missed our set-up in the Bronze Peacock Ballroom. These photos are brought to you by the absolutely fabulously talented, Laurie Perez. Laurie also hand scripted this amazing aisle runner pictured. We are head over heels in love the way it came out! Thank you so much, Laurie. And also, a huge thank you to Emily with Matters of the Heart for the STUNNING invitation to go along with our Event Design. Emily is awesome, y’all!

We have been waiting for so long to be able to share these images with all of you! We had the amazing opportunity back in January to team up with the talented Ryan Price Photography for a really creative, fun styled shoot in Kemah, Texas. Our inspiration was the carnival atmosphere, the boardwalk, pier, and the old fashioned feel of everything. Below are a few of our favorite shots from the day, and they are so incredibly STUNNING – we will let them do most of the talking. Thank you Ryan for your artistic vision and how brilliantly you capture this day.
