Wedding Roundup: What Wowed Us

Thursday, June 21, 2012

There were too many great weddings out there not to share this week. As a rental company, we love seeing when clients personalize their wedding or event by choosing colors and textures that are representative of them and their landscape or atmosphere. It's amazing how the slightest detail transforms the entire mood of an evening. We can take inspiration from any of these events and translate it into a gala or opening night event. It's one of our favorite parts of this job. From the first to last image, these breathtaking photos completely wowed us. 

DFW Events: Amanda & Aaron

Clockwise from top left: The bridal shoe - sexy but sweet juxtaposed with a lace dress. // The wedding took place at a family home, where it was decided to incorporate a huge existing tree in the yard. The Garden Gate covered it in white rose petals and Amanda and Aaron's initials and wedding date were carved into the trunk. // Tenting sets a luxurious tone. // The beautiful couple en route to the honeymoon.
The ceremony took place inside a tent filled with gorgeous florals and ivory chiavari chairs.
Simple and elegant tabletops with classic chiavari chairs.
Desire to Inspire: Cover the pool for an awesome and unique dance floor and surround the scene with POSH bar stools and hi-boys.

Five Things: Summer Entertaining

Wednesday, June 20, 2012
Today is officially the first day of Summer. It may be tough to beat the heat down in Texas, but don't let that stop you from some serious Summer Solstice entertaining. So sit back and relax (hopefully with a fan and a cool beverage) -- we've got the goods lined up for your hostess duties whether you're poolside, lakeside or oceanfront.

Pick something colorful for your lively libations - they'll look great in your guest's hands and be a prime point on the tabletop. For linens, go luxe with the White Hot Summer theme for a head table or focal point for the evening. #1 (Clockwise from top): Classic and Parisian Carnival Glass, Blue-Green Glassware, Elise Cut Crystal Stemware, all POSH Couture Rentals. #2 (Clockwise from top left): Ivory Petal Taffeta, Ivory Circle Ribbon Taffeta, Ivory Rosette, all Resource One Linens, exclusively at POSH Couture Rentals.

This playlist will get the good vibes flowing for an lazy Summer evening filled with friends and laughter. As always, the best bet is iTunes, but if you aren't a fan of Spotify yet, it is highly recommended.

We love our Lily Server and wanted to showcase a simple Summer dish that would perfectly fit the dish and the season. We called Kim Jameson at Cassandra's Fine Catering to see what she recommended. She originally found the recipe above in Bon Appetit and swears by it for Summer entertaining.

What kind of friends would we be if we didn't give you some advice on what to wear for hostess/guest duties? All of these looks are simple to achieve and can easily be switched out for other activities and events. // 1.

Tabletop Tuesday: Jackie Onassis

Tuesday, June 19, 2012
AK Events was asked by D Weddings to design a tabletop for the ideal client. When you think timeless weddings, Jackie O isn't far from your mind. With her impeccable poise and grace, she was the epitome of understated glamour and beauty. We think she would be just as impressed with this tablescape, too.

So the next time you call on POSH Petite for a party, keep these other goodies in mind.
