To Do: Weekend Checklist

Friday, February 22, 2013
We've been busy, so we're playing catch up on the fun stuff before the Spring season gets in full swing. So what's inspiring us this weekend?

Must See: We got a chance to slip over and see the Gongora/Picasso: Graphic Poetry exhibit while running around the Meadows Museum open house (read more here and here). The Baroque poet's work inspiring the artist's hand is something that needs to be seen again and again to fully grasp it's importance. Hurry over to the Meadows and try to catch it. Info here.
Need: You can never have enough ceramics in the house, seriously. Especially when the line is Potterseed, which includes delicate painting and abstract patterns in a garden-inspired collaboration between two South African potteries. Find them at John Derian
Decorate: Celerie Kemble can really do no wrong in our books, and she has proven it again with a her new line of wall coverings from Schumacher. Our favorite? Featherbloom.  
Queen B: Oh, Beyonce. She's already proven that girls run the world, but with a new world tour plus a Vogue March cover, it's safe to say it's B's world and we just live in it. Did you catch her documentary last Sunday on HBO? Just makes us love her even more. 

Entertain: Southern Exposure

Thursday, February 21, 2013
Southern ladies know a thing or two about setting a beautiful table, and probably no one knows that better than Martha Stewart. Today, we're inspired by her latest magazine featuring a Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. Martha and her gang were the only ones allowed to photograph the wedding (you can see more images here). Below, we show you how to get the look with P.O.S.H. for your own Southern Exposure - perfect for a Spring evening with friends and family.

Moodboard: Blushing Romance

Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Today's moodboard serves as serious inspiration for #WeddingWednesday. Thousands of blooms (roses, tulips, hydrangea), hundreds of guests, dozens of names (Neiman Marcus, Jimmy Choo, Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta), more than a few amazing vendors (see full list below), and one beautifully in love couple. 

Jordan Payne of Jordan Payne Events had a hand in designing everything for the bride, from the luscious cascades of florals to the amazing stationary and paper goods. Her concept brought the bride's romantic hues of pink and gold to life. We are in love with every aspect of this blushing bride's fairytale wedding. For more details on how Jordan brought it all together, visit here.

Get the look with P.O.S.H. COUTURE RENTALS: The bride loved our Mottahedeh Lace Charger, Gold Leaf China Collection, Gold Leaf Glassware and Stemware, and Parisian Stemware.

Jacqueline Hill of Jacqueline Hill Events designed this luscious tabletop with inspiration from nature (and keeping in mind the overwhelming Texas heat) and the flora and fauna we miss when we bring receptions inside. She thought of everything, even a kids table for the precious petites in your life.

What a gorgeous setting for your big day! Our favorite detail? Out of the Garden's details, from the green charger to the floral centerpieces (above). The kid's table (below), has the perfect mix of whimsy and luxe (it is still for a wedding, after all). The tree stumps are too cute! We also have Petite chiavari chairs to even out the tabletop.

Rentals include, Ivory Cottonesse linen with Ivory Hemstitch napkins, Silver Beaded Charger, Sevres China, Floral Elegance Flatware, Vintage Carnival Glassware.

This gorgeous tabletop was published for Brides of North Texas, Spring 2013. Thanks BoNT and Jacqueline Hill Events for including us in this amazing spread!

If you're thinking about glamour

Monday, February 18, 2013

Oscar de la Renta is a constant source of inspiration. He manages to make a luxurious statement with every collection. Glamor drips from everything he touches, even the most saccharine of colors, like pink. When we think of dressing the table as Oscar would his latest runway, we think of appeal of elaborate details - like the gold filigree etched throughout his gown below - and translate that to tabletop with our Gold Lace collection. Excess is never a question with Oscar, but it is just the right amount. Our favorite words of wisdom from the notable designer in regards to tabletop: "Set the table and make it beautiful, then don't pay any more attention to it." We can help with that.
