Agenda: Heading Out

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

April showers (or blizzards depending on what part of the country you're in) brings tons of April events! We're sending our best out all across Dallas and Texas this week and packing plenty of surprises for May and June. If you see our POSH trucks out, come over and say hi. Oh, and please be safe while out in this (much needed) wet weather.

Tabletop Tuesday: Marie Antoinette

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Romance, intrigue, and extravagant design come to mind when we hear the name Marie Antoinette. She has influenced everything from phrases, movies, gardens, and tablescapes. Emily Clarke of Emily Clarke Weddings & Events created a luxe and lavish scene  at the Stoneleigh Hotel and Spa inspired by the Dauphine of France and her magical Tuileries Garden and even more opulent home at The Palace of Versailles. From a royal palette of rich gold and charming pinks, the table is set for the modern lady who pictures an enchanting abundance of fun and glamour on her big day, be it a wedding or bridal brunch or just an dinner with the girls. We see it as the perfect backdrop for a pampered evening with the girls. Whatever your reason to celebrate, what a way to let them eat cake. (For a full list of vendors plus details from Emily herself, click here.)

A modern day Marie Antoinette patiently awaits her visitors. Emily Clarke  picked this fabulous gown from Stanley Korshak and created a towering head piece worthy of the Dauphine of France.

More gorgeous blooms from Bridal Blooms. Rentals from POSH include a toast worth of royals with Gold Floral Lace Stemware and Silver Goblet.

Set the table with Mottahedeh White Lace Charger, Arte Italica Dinner Plate, and silk napkin. Rentals from POSH.

Gorgeous gilded serving trays, plates, and trays for easy service.  And what would a French inspired tablescape be without our Sevres Collection teacups and saucers.  All from POSH.

A whimsical champagne tower with Pure Champagne Saucers from POSH.

Invitation and favor design by Emily Clarke.

I mean, how fabulous is this shot?

We can't get enough Marie Antoinette!

Outfit to Tabletop: Pretty Pastels

Monday, April 8, 2013
Spring calls for pretty pinks and feminine hues, but who says your pastels can't be sophisticated? Taking a cue from the wardrobe of the one and only LSD (Lauren Santo Domingo), we jumped on the pink and gold bandwagon that has made it from Vogue events to fabulous Texas weddings. 

Left, Lauren Santo Domingo / POSH rentals include, Pink Scalloped Acrylic Charger, Gold Leaf Dinner and Salad Plate, Gold Leaf Compote, Gold Lyons Flatware, Royal Gold Glassware
 We love how LSD's look can go from a weekend brunch to ladies lunch. Our tablescape transitions just as well with its mix of precious metals and whimsical touches of pink. A seasonal centerpiece of tulips ties in to the acrylic charger while the gold adds a refined elegance that hinders this tablescape from becoming to cheesy. How would you style pink and gold?
