Create A Unique Table

Friday, March 7, 2014
When planning an event, whether it be a wedding reception, dinner party, luncheon, or corporate dinner, there are many ways that you can make your tables unique.  We may be a little biased that all you need is a great tabletop design and flowers to complete a table, but sometimes you need to add more too really standout.  Every day we are surrounded by all sorts of beautiful pieces that inspire us to try new things.  Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and try something different with your design.  Why not go above and beyond and really make a statement?   

Here at  P.O.S.H.® it is our specialty to provide you with luxury pieces to make your event perfect.  And while we have tabletop covered, here are a few of our favorite ideas to add that extra something to your table.

Place cards are traditionally used to indicate what table or where a guest is assigned to sit and generally place cards are designed on a piece of paper to add a little style.  This by far is the most commonly used form of place cards, but recently we have been seeing fun ways to switch it up like the ones pictured below. 

Here at P.O.S.H.® we have a variety of chairs that we offer and if we do say so ourselves they are pretty outstanding just the way they are, but too really up the ante we think adding a little chair décor does just the trick.  By adding either a cushion, ribbon design, or cover to any chair you can really take it from drab to fab!

Napkins are essential for any table setting.  Just as the silverware and china are a must, napkins are one thing that makes a table complete.  While napkins are essential for your table, there is no reason you can’t spruce them up with a little somethin’ somethin’.  We are picturing flowers, bows, menus and layers…

Ghost chairs are all the rage these days and are being used for events, interior design, and fashion pieces, you pretty much can’t go wrong with these.  They come in a variety of colors and styles, each one more fabulous than the last.  The thing about these chairs is that they really can be situated into any venue or scene.  Their versatility makes them very unique and outstanding!

There is something so simply elegant about colorful glassware.  We love how they stand out and can make a statement on their own, as well as, compliment other pieces on the table.  Why not try something other than tradition crystal glassware?  Here at P.O.S.H.® COUTURE RENTALS we have a variety of colorful glassware in all sorts of colors that we love to incorporate into our designs.  We urge you to incorporate pieces like these into your table design and we are sure you will be an instant fan!

Whether it be with your chargers, china, flowers, or linens; pops of vibrant color really make a tablescape standout.  For any occasion it really is the best way to take a boring and dull setting and turn it into a unique and outstanding table.

Spring Break P.O.S.H. Style

Wednesday, March 5, 2014
Spring Break is officially just around the corner, and by this we mean it’s quickly approaching in the next few weeks and days for some, yikes!  It’s a time for a little rest and relaxation if you’re lucky enough to have a few days off and if you’re not then you can pretend you are relaxing on the beaches of Mexico.  As for us moms, spring break usually brings a little more chaos with school being out, but who doesn’t love a little a chaos every now and then to stir things up, especially when the chaos involves our kids!

Since we don’t have any fabulous Spring Break plans or destinations to visit, we thought why not try and make the most of it?  With this in mind we wanted to bring the feeling of being on vacation to our homes and the only way we saw fitting was with a tabletop that oozes the feeling of spring break.  Our main interest is to keep it easy breezy!  Whether you are planning a pool party, Mexican fiesta, or a dinner outside we have you covered.  Here is how we would put together tablescapes for these parties.
We love the idea of doing a Spring Break party theme based on destinations.  Our favorites: Mexico, Miami, and the Bahamas.

When we think Mexico, we think of vibrant colors and warm sand under our feet.  Our ideal table features our cross-back farm chairs and Mayflower farm table along with our Vintage Classic and Parisian Carnival Glassware.  As a whole, it makes you feel like you are in Mexico even when you may be in your own backyard.  Viva la Mexico!

No other color seems to perfectly fit a Miami themed party other than white.  The concept is so crisp and can easily translate to any table.  One of our favorites items here at P.O.S.H. Couture Rentals are our ghost chairs, these are the perfect accent to an all white table.  As far as the tabletop design goes, keep it simple, we suggest keeping the idea of modern and elegant in  mind.

We are currently picturing the crystal clear blue water, ahh…paradise!  You really could do just about anything with this concept.  From beach themed to under the sea, if only we could bring all that beautiful sand to us, think beach chic.  Our picks include our round rattan charger accompanied by blue and white china collection and blue-green swirl stem glassware.  The blue hues really round out the look and give you the beachy theme!

While thinking about travel for Spring Break and beautiful warm destinations is fun, sometimes it’s nice just to focus on the things you have at home and create a casual, fun environment in your backyard, usually in the form of a pool party or barbeque.
When planning a pool party or barbeque, there are certain go-to items that seem to always make it on the list.  In terms of serving pieces, these items usually are paper plates and plastic silverware, simply because of their ease and the easy clean-up.  Plain and simple, this idea is realistic, but we don’t love how plain it all seems and how wasteful these products are.  Our solution is to purchase eco-friendly products, Party City has a great variety in all different colors and designs, and incorporate a rattan or acrylic charger from P.O.S.H. to provide stability and something special.  It’s an easy way to incorporate something different than just regular old paper products.
