On Trend: Julie's Picks

Thursday, June 28, 2012
Julie Smith picks her favorite rentals for summer. We promise, you'll want to scoop them up for your next shindig. 

1. Mushroom Bengaline with Oyster Metallic Mesh Overlay: Naturals are big right now. And what better way to embrace summer? 

2. Lily Server: A classy and clever way to add style to your amuse bouche. Check out our Five Things for a great watermelon gazpacho from Kim at Cassandra's Catering. Perfect for this dish! 

3. Vintage Carnival Glassware: A stylish twist on your tabletop -- this was huge in the D Weddings Fall 2012 issue. While it's great any time of year, Julie calls this the modern mason jar. It's perfect for summer sweat tea and cold beverages. 

4. Gold Floral Lace Goblet and Champagne Flute, plus the Amber Trumpet Glass: One look at these and you'll know why this is Julie's favorite way to toast a summer soiree. Touches of gold with your natural linens bring effortless elegance to your tabletop. 

5. Mottahedeh Tree Charger and China: Unique and textured finishes for a dream tabletop.

POSH Couture Rentals is a behind-the-scenes business. Before the gorgeous tablescapes, linens and chairs meet your aesthetically trained eye, we work behind the scenes helping clients figure out the right tones, themes, colors and mixtures to fulfill every whim of their imagination. Because we are so often inspired by our clients and their mood boards, we thought we'd share what inspires Team POSH. With our home office in Dallas heating up (106 degrees!), you can imagine we're dreaming about trading in our work wear for swimsuits and nautical landscapes. Whether you're working or wheels up towards your vacation destination, we hope you enjoy getting your own behind-the-scenes look at Team POSH.

Up first, Sales Manager Julie Smith shares what she's looking forward to this summer. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see her on-trend rentals for the warm season.

There's nothing that hanging out with the girls and a little bit of sunshine won't cure!

If you're going to stay in Texas, you better find digs on the nearest lake in these hot summer months. While in Dallas, check out our Texas Rangers, and keep a few Blue Moons with orange slices handy to beat the heat!

Tabletop Tuesday: Georgia O'Keeffe

Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Continuing the D Weddings Fall 2012 series of asking wedding planners to create a tablescape for their ideal client, A Stylish Soiree chose Georgia O'Keeffe. This modern artist came to largely represent the American Southwest with her compelling landscapes and cultural body of work. Floral centerpieces that appear to be floating above the table, green landscapes and a setting in the outdoors would be O'Keeffe approved. We love the modern take Stylish Soiree took by incorporating green polka dots. 

Rental items: Green Chiavari Chairs, Schott Zwiesel Pure Tritan Glassware, Green Chloe Goblets, Lime Round Scalloped Charger, Silver Bead Glass Plate, Green Polka Dot China, Barcelona Silver, Vintage Dessert Compotes.

Staycation: Dinner Inspired by Rachel Zoe

Monday, June 25, 2012
Do you get The Zoe Report? Rachel Zoe is our closet's fairy godmother (if you've seen her closet or office, you're in for a treat), and her great taste extends beyond what we wear. Jeremiah Brent of Team Zoe gave insider tips last week on how to throw the perfect backyard soiree for friends and family. POSH approves and thought we'd spin it with our own goods. See for yourself.
