P.O.S.H. Picks: Midsummer Soiree

Our favorite P.O.S.H. gals, Jordan Ugalde, Kara Farley, and Terra Hoebing, make hostess duty even less complicated with their no-fail tips for summer parties. Jordan swear by color and a song that makes everyone get up to dance; Farley knows the best crowd pleaser involves food (and individual portions only raise the bar); and Terra translates personal style into everything from attire to tabletop. We'll be sharing more from P.O.S.H. family, so stay tuned!  Image credit: Anthropologie | Summer Special: Complete your place settings with china, flatware, and glassware and receive 20% off.

WW: Fort Worth Zoo

Wednesday, June 26, 2013
Tabletop: Silver Goblet, Parisian Gold Flatware, Pewter Chiavari Chairs, Classico Stemware, Khaki Mandarin Nu Silk | Floral, Branching Out

This dose of #WeddingWednesday is a throwback to Spring featuring all of our favorite things: The Fort Worth Zoo, artistic photography, a range of tablescapes and linens, cocktail hours and seated dinners, a beautiful bride and groom, and the creative genius of Emily Clarke and Debby Jewesson of Branching Out. This gorgeous event took guests on a wild ride in the best way - animal shows, magicians, great bands, etc. One glimpse at these photos and we're sure you'll agree. See even more images on Style Me Pretty.

Guests were greeted with a sign in table covered with beautiful floral arrangements by Branching Out and animal inspired trinkets, like the elephant planter. We love how Emily covered the first thing guests would see with a gorgeous Blush Ribbon Organza from Resource One, exclusively at P.O.S.H.

P.O.S.H. Villa Ballroom Chairs are the perfect way to add sophistication to the tented ceremony, along with dramatic draping from Dallas Draping and Lighting.

After the ceremony, guests were ushered to the back of the tent so the front room could be transformed into a dance floor and seated dinner setting. Guests enjoyed cocktails with custom bars from Fauxcades and Liland's Special Events and cocktail tables and chiavari barstools from P.O.S.H.

Elegant draping for the bride's entrance.

Seating cards matched the zoo theme with painted animal figurines attached to name cards.

Head Table: Mottahedeh White Lace Charger, Gold Parisian Flatware, Silver Rimmed Water Goblet, Silver Wine Goblet, Pure Stemware

Villa Chairs were moved to guests tables along with oversized seating from Liland's for a modern table arrangement.

The head table received special treatment with Amber Kartell Ghost Chairs from Resource One, exclusively at P.O.S.H.

Gorgeous lighting from Beyond.

Tabletop Tuesday: Haute Hues

Tuesday, June 25, 2013
A kaleidoscope of color, perfect for summer's palette.

 We love the Meadows Museum and team of event professionals at SMU (as evidenced here, here, and here). We love their love of color, authentic patterns, and presentation, whether it be the tabletops, the flowers, the band, or the food. With our summer sale now in full swing (subscribe to our newsletter to not miss any of the details), we thought it appropriate to show how to really layer place settings that can transcend any season. Herewith, a brilliant display of tabletop featuring our colorful Carnival Glassware and authentic Charles Sadek Antique Sevres Collection.

Layering isn't just for Fall: Square Rattan Charger, Mottahedeh White Lace Charger, Sevres China Dinner, Salad, Teacup and Saucer

Antique Carnival Glassware in Parisian and Classic, shown in Purple, Green, Pale Pink, and Clear
