Luxe Booth | Modern Shabby Chic

Who’s excited to see more from our styling competition!? Ready or not, first up is Ms. Katie!

Katie: “This Luxe Booth Vignette was a Luxury Shabby Chic design with modern touches. The focal point was a gallery of mirrors used for wedding guests to take a moment and ‘selfie’ reflect. Who doesn’t love to snap a mirror selfie, especially when you’re all dolled up for a wedding!? Placed in the Grand Lawn of Cypress Grove, I positioned the wall facing the water, so the water and trees would be reflected in the selfies.

I brought the mirrors down from the wall gallery by incorporating vanities on either side of the wall. One was a rich wood desk and vanity with beautiful trim work, and the other vanity sat atop our Gold Front Dresser, Eleanor! I adorned the space with a large tufted chair {he goes by Coleman around here} that features beautiful nailhead trim to reflect the gold in the mirrors. Beside him was our gold end table with a mirrored top.

On the wooden wall was yards of assorted lace and cream ribbon. This is where the ‘shabby chic’ really came into play. This added texture and warmth to the rich wooden wall. The color scheme that you can see woven throughout the design consisted of mixed metals, a muted silver blue, rich wood and touches of cream. In the wall gallery, I opted for a mix of elaborate luxurious gold frames paired with some clean cut modern designs to form an eclectic collection. I kept the floral very simple with modern glass cube vases and white tulips.”

Creating a Backup Plan

Unfavorable weather can certainly put a damper on a wedding, but if you’ve got a good backup plan in place there’s really nothing to worry about! Check out a few of our quick tips for creating a Plan B:

  • Not enough indoor space – tents are the best bet if your venue can’t accommodate an indoor event. Speak with your onsite contact to see if this is something that can be rented in-house, or if they have preferred contacts.
  • Don’t forgo side walls on a tent – these help keep the rain out and the heat in {for winter events}.
  • Consider the season – think about bringing in fans for hot/humid summer weather, or space heaters if it’s chilly outside. For summer events, feature a fun beverage station with chilled water and lemonade {and maybe a gourmet coffee bar for the winter months}.
  • Set aside a contingency fund – if a tent is needed, it’s important that you set aside money for extras {lighting, walls, draping, etc.} since tents are basic structures.
