To Do: Weekend Checklist

Friday, November 2, 2012

It's the last weekend of Partner's Card, and we have our eyes on a few brilliant pieces at our favorite shops. Here is what we're planning on this weekend. What will you be doing? Remember, you can use your Partner's Card at POSH Couture Rentals. Call us today to save on your upcoming events! See more info here.

 1. Partner's Card, Dallas top fundraiser for The Family Place, is in its last few days! What's on our wish list? How about Kimberly McDonald Double Geode Drop Earrings from Forty Five Ten, a gorgeous YSL clutch from TOOTSIES, and an opulent place setting from POSH for our next holiday soiree. (Rentals shown here include Gold Florentine Charger, mixed Gold Scroll and Gold Leaf China, and Gold Lyons Flatware.

2. On our weekend reading list: We can't wait to get our hands on Grace Coddington's memoir! Everyone knows she's just as vital to Vogue as Anna. Read an excerpt of it here

3. We're excited to be a sponsor at the ultimate shopping stop for our favorite ladies who lunch: The Dallas International Art, Antique and Jewelry Show. We're talking beauty beyond belief -- definitely a one-stop shopping experience for everyone important in your life. Some of our favorites that we know will be up for sale are shown above, including the GIOIA rosecut sapphires and moonstones cuff bracelet, an 18k yellow gold Buccellati cuff with three rubies and  over 108 round diamonds from J.S. Fearnley, plus - you know how much we love tabletop - an amazing George Jones Majolica Pineapple Teapot (circa 1870, England). Do we have your attention yet? Good, because we have FREE tickets to give away for our POSH pals. Call us for more info.

The Harvest Table: Seated Elegance

Thursday, November 1, 2012
With Thanksgiving just weeks away, we're spotlighting this Harvest Table series to show you how to add festive touches to your holiday tabletop. After all, you want to make sure the place settings do justice for grandma's famous recipes. Our latest addition to the showroom, the Mahogany Rose by Noritake, turns the classic place setting into a striking arrangement with its rich color and and modern twist on the traditional rose pattern. We like to mix in the Exotic Bird or Gold Leaf (shown below) for even more autumnal opulence. Another way to instantly up the glamour at a seated dinner is by adding impressive accent goblets. A favorite is the complete Gold Lace glassware collection, now with an au courant demitasse cup - perfect for those after dinner drinks or espressos. Your harvest table should beget the same oohs and ahhs as a great gastronomical spread. Set up an appointment today to make sure you have the right ingredients to spice up your tabletop. 

Tabletop: A staple for Fall place settings is the classic Maple Leaf Charger, a perfect foundation for layering the Mahogany Rose with the Gold Leaf china. Add a luxury linen, like the Mahogany Swirl Velvet linen by Resource One. 
1. New Mahogany Rose by Noritake, the perfect compliment to your holiday tabletop.
2. Add elegance with Gold Lace Glassware, including the new Gold Lace Demitasse.
3. Mix in classic china, like the Gold Leaf China Collection.
4. Only the finest flatware should make it to a holiday tabletop, which is why we offer the couture Christofle Flatware.

Tabletop Tuesday: Golden Glow

Tuesday, October 30, 2012
The glow coming from these amazing tabletops designed by Paige Chenault Events warmed our hearts. Touches of gold on a monochromatic backdrop of cream and ivory - and those gorgeous floral arrangements by Stacey Murdoch of The Wildflower - prove that simple can indeed be stunning. Gary Donihoo and Kym Skiles of f8 studios captured the beautiful couple, Rachel and Andrew, and their wonderful wedding. See images of the entire event here.

ONE: The equally glowing couple, Rachel and Andrew, celebrate in style. We especially loved the centerpiece designed by The Wildflower. Get the look with our Simply Ivory China Collection and classic white hemstitch linen napkins.
TWO: A luscious (and undoubtedly delicious) cake on a gorgeous linen. Cake: Tamara Bayo for Four Seasons / Linen: Ivory Rosette by Resource One, exclusively at POSH Couture Rentals. 
THREE: Service and style. Get the look with our Gold Chiavari Chairs and mix up your tabletop with our Gold Filigree (Gold Lace) Glassware and the Gold Scroll Glassware. 
FOUR: We love great looking paper goods; they add a fun and festive element for your guests.
