Rae Bookshelf | Inventory Highlight

Who doesn’t love a good bookshelf? They’re great accent pieces and allow you to add even more personalization to a space. We love using them for dessert displays, champagne displays, and incorporating them into our social lounges!

Rae is the newest addition to our bookshelf collection, and we must say, she looks fantastic with so many of our pieces! Her natural wood color makes her a great match with any color palette, and she has five shelves on which to feature items. We love how she’s styled here with floral and fun decor pieces!

Sideboards | Welcome to the Family, Ralphy!

Our newest sideboard, Ralphy, paired with Ice.

Boy, did we have a busy summer! A production shoot, prepping for fall wedding season, and adding new inventory have kept us on our toes! Joining the family are new upholstered pieces, sideboards, and more!

Which brings us to… Ralphy! He’s one of our newest sideboards and we love the vibe he brings! The rattan webbing makes him great for our boho brides, and the drawer style + mini legs give him a fun, modern twist.

Our newest sideboard, Ralphy!

He looks fantastic with so many of our pieces, and our pal, Melanie Paige Events, recently paired him with our new Ice chairs. What do you think of this combo? We adore the neutral tones of the tables + textiles with the pops of blue!

Our newest sideboard, Ralphy, paired with Ice.

He’s the perfect size for lots of options – a social lounge, a cake display, or even a welcome station! Melanie opted to style him in a social lounge and used him as a photo opp for the cake 😉

Ralphy is a modern, boho sideboard.
Our newest Ice chairs are a lovely shade of slate blue and look great with our sideboards!

Wedding Tablescapes for Days

Not to brag, but we know how to design stunning wedding tablescapes. Styling is our jam, and as we prepped for fall wedding season, we decided to invite others to join us in a two-day style session! Wedding planners, photographers, florists, bakers, and calligraphers all brought their A-game and styled the day away with us! We showcased some of our favorite tables, chairs, and chargers, along with table settings from Treasury Rentals.

It was the perfect way to ease ourselves back into busy season and to see some new + familiar faces. We’re so grateful to all the vendors who joined us and we cannot resist sharing a few sneak peeks from the day with you!

Fern and Curl Designs styled blooms for two wedding tablescapes in front of the bay window. Her first design is perfect for fall and features resin floral favors by Rejoice and Blossom Art. On day two she partnered with Melanie Paige Events for a bright, organic look paired with our brand-new luxe chairs!

If anything, these two days showed us just how important flowers and greenery are for styling a beautiful tablescape! We’ve got to give a huge thank you to all of the vendors who joined us and we can’t wait to reveal more photos soon! We’ve been if we’ll do this again… The answer is yes, but give us a few months to recover, and buy new inventory 😉

Boho-Tropical Decor at Venue 1902

Remember those tips we gave about incorporating tropical foliage into your decor? Well, our rental couple, Victoria + Rob, put those tips into action! Their wedding venue offered the perfect clean slate for their boho-tropical decor, and they incorporated lots {and lots} of fun foliage.

This boho-tropical wedding used our Soleil room divider as a ceremony backdrop.
Foliage: Johnson Plant Rental

All of the foliage adds so much texture, and we love how they used it to frame their rental pieces. From the ceremony backdrop to cocktail hour, and even their place settings, no corner of the venue was left untouched! Speaking of ceremony backdrops, doesn’t Soleil make a great option? We love using her for social lounges and sweetheart tables. But she works great for the ceremony, dessert displays, and even a welcome table!

Inventory: Sunflower | Ranchero | Hunter | Olivia

The pièce de résistance of Victoria + Rob’s rentals is their social lounge! The emerald + gold color palette really popped in the space, and Sunflower made for a stunning accent sofa.

Planner: Everlasting Events & Design
Foliage/Floral: Sanford Flower Shop
The Dorie lounge set looked stunning in the venue's alley and went perfectly with the boho-tropical theme.

One of our favorite spots at Venue 1902 is this alley. It’s the perfect spot for a lounge, allowing guests to step away from the action to mingle and chat 😊 The foliage helped to fill the space, and we just love how the emerald leaves make the velvet Dorie set pop! Everything they selected really brought their boho-tropical theme to life!

Bohemian Inspired Decor

Tropical Decor | Our newest inventory pairs perfectly with tropical inspired decor.

It’s always a great day when we have new rental + styling goodies to play with. And that makes today even better because we have LOTS of new pieces! Meet the newest members of the inventory family! These pieces work perfectly if you’re incorporating tropical decor into your event.

Tropical Decor | Our newest inventory pairs perfectly with tropical inspired decor.

Melody, one of our newest sofas, is a stunning shade of blush and features a plush velvety texture. We love pairing her with some rattan pieces to give her more of a casual vibe. But, she works great with modern pieces too! And the natural foliage at Luxmore Grande Estate provides the perfect, tropical-inspired backdrop for this lounge setup 😍 Imagine being a guest at this wedding and having such a stylish space to relax in!

Sebastian is one of our most unique bar carts and makes for a fun accent piece to this relaxed social lounge. Paired with the Nala coffee table, a set of end tables, and some fun textiles, this lounge is the perfect place for your guests to relax and mingle! Want to add a touch more tropical decor? Incorporate some Philodendron Monstera or Areca Palm for a fun pop of color! Our selection of textiles, available to all of our styling clients, finishes off the look and makes this lounge picture perfect!

Something Blue | Bold Blue Hue

Are wedding traditions a thing of the past? Specifically, traditions such as something old, something new, something borrowed, something BLUE. Did you know this saying came from and old English rhyme?

I have absolutely no idea where I was going with this question, lol! It was a thought I had as I decided to showcase the gorgeous Aries sofa in the Dynasty Collection. This rich hue of blue makes it an easy sofa to pair various color palettes. Style tip: Whether you’re going for rich jewel tones or a softer palette with a dusty blue or soft pink. Aries pairs nicely with both. 

Aries comes with a matching settee that shares her rich velvety texture, modern gold legs, and exaggerated tufting.

And yes! If you’re going for jewel tones in the lounge… we totally think you should carry it to the dining tables as well. How stunning is this rich blue velvet linen from Over the Top? The bold arrangement from Flowers by Lesley tied merlot into the palette and we softened it a bit by adding elegant place-settings from Treasury Rentals.

Signature Cocktail | Perfectly Paired With a Twist

Cocktails + Rentals

It’s fair to say that the décor at your wedding sets the tone for your day. Why stop there? You always can add to the ambiance by pairing your rental pieces with a signature cocktail that speaks the same language. Unsure how to match your drinks with your rentals? Don’t worry, that’s a language we are fluent in!  See some of our favorite pairings below 😉

Moscow Mule

This light and refreshing cocktail is served in its signature copper mug which speaks to the bohemian aesthetic. All drinks need a home and the Dublin bar is the perfect addition to a boho wedding and will elevate the look of a standard bar. The next pairing on the list is the Lennon chair set, this wicker throne like piece makes a statement and is the perfect addition to a head or sweetheart! We also love a boho wedding with a dash of color, the Sunflower Sofa is the perfect place for your guests to lounge as they sip their Moscow Mule!

The ingredients: Vodka, Ginger Beer, Lime Juice

 

Old Fashioned

This bourbon based cocktail has a bit of kick but plays well with a modern feel. The sleek and contemporary Aries Settee has subtle gold accent which pops next to its Royal Blue velvet. Keeping the gold accents consistent upgrade the look of your reception with the impeccably named Black Luxe Chairs and Gold Rimmed Charger for a sophisticated feel paired well with a sophisticated signature cocktail.

The ingredients: Bourbon, Bitters, Simple Syrup, Orange Wheel

French 75

The French 75 is a refreshing and citrusy, sparkling champagne cocktail with a hint of gin 😉. Champagne has always had its place on wedding day, repurpose The Gwen Bookshelf for your welcome drink display! Place at your venues entrance and as your guests walk in they’ll be able to grab this champagne cocktail as they find their seat. Keeping the French theme going enhance your ceremony setting with the Sand Louis chairs. Sipping their French 75 while seated in soft, slightly distressed chairs plays well with the overall French inspired theme. After a night of dancing and sipping your signature cocktail, your guests will surely want a comfy seat. Create a lounge set that complements perfectly with the Daisy Sofa!

The ingredients: Gin, Simple Syrup, Lemon Twist, Champagne

Tables, Chairs, Charger Combo!

Setting the table!

Deciding on the perfect wedding rentals can be quite the daunting task. Our team is happy to make suggestions based on your individual style while saving you money in the process. Did you know… the more you rent, the more you save! We offer a client’s a saving of us to 20% when renting farmhouse tables, chairs, and tabletop (to include chargers, glassware, and flatware). 

We love the combination selected for this private ocean-side estate wedding! They selected the Sand dining chairs, Caroline farm tables, and tabletop from our friends at Treasury Rentals. 

This gorgeous wedding was capture by Kartsie Photography with floral by Flowers by Lesley. 

Color Pop: Sunflower + Merlot

Are you tired of seeing the same wedding color palettes and itching to do something different? Have you thought about using bold and vibrant colors, but don’t know how to piece them together? We’ve got just the combo for you! Whether you are going with a vintage or modern vibe, these two colors make a statement! Sunflower and Merlot are the perfect color combination to create a bold statement.  

If you’re going for a Modern look, check out our Hans sofa and chairs would pair nicely with a mix of merlot blooms to compliment it.

Pictured above is the  Sunflower  and Garnet  make the perfect duo when paired with a neutral sofa like  Garrett . Or If you’re not sure about going THAT bold, try incorporating these statement colors with pillows on a neutral sofa set. If you’re going for a vintage vibe, pieces like the Sunflower sofa and Berry Jr. chairs are the perfect complement to each other. Tie the look together with neutral blooms and greenery to pull it all together. 

Basically, what we’re saying, is don’t be afraid to go bold and make a statement! If you’re unsure how to pull it all together, we’ve got you covered. Our design team would love to chat with you!

Bar Styling

Let’s be honest, the bar is a key element of the wedding—for you and your guests! Gone are the days of sticking the bar in the corner, hoping it doesn’t sneak up in any photos. Your bar should make a statement and be an extension of the two of you! Whether you’re planning to serve signature drinks, craft beers, or artfully mixed cocktails, we’ve got you covered when it comes to the decor 🙂

What’s your wedding style?

It’s totally fine if you’re not sure! We can definitely assist you with coming up with the right catch phrase – southern chic? Boho? Retro? Whatever it is, we’ve got the little details to create an artful experience tying everything together. Let’s shake things up!

Artful Mixology | Bar Styling by RW Style
Pictured: Sideboard | Hinge

Once you’ve determined the style, think about some fun cocktails or mocktails to feature! Maybe you’re looking to throw it back a bit to a more retro vibe. The Classic Martini and Old Fashioned are a great way to use common bar inclusions with a dressed-up twist. Now all you need is the right bar front, glassware, and details!

Loungin’ at The Acre

This dapper couple has a keen eye for style and loves a jewel toned palette as much as we do! 

They tied the knot at The Acre Orlando. Curating a bold and colorful lounge in this white space was only fitting. That jewel toned obsession runs deep with our clients, too! Check out this lounge we styled for an Acre bride. She wanted a conversation set in rich hues of black, blue, and green. Naturally, we used touches of gold as an accent while livening the space up with fresh greenery.

Featured inventory, not including the textiles + assortment of styling goodies! 

Upholstered seating: Onyx, Jewel, Sapphire, + Olivia 

Accent Tables + Furnishings: Heston, Harlow, + Lana

Wedding Pro Experience

Yellow Inspired Social Lounge

We love working with and meeting vendors in the wedding industry. We had the opportunity to attend and sponsor some fun, colorful rentals for the Knot Wedding Pro Experience. The Wedding Pro experience is a seminar for wedding industry professionals and it was so fun to meet and mingle with a great group of people! The event took place at the gorgeous Four Seasons Resort and featured some of our fun rental pieces! We had so much fun learning and networking! 

Setting the Stage with Colorful Rentals

Yellow Inspired Social Lounge

We’re obsessed with the colorful rentals in this lounge set and we’re feeling the tropical vibes! The vignette’s framed with three Living Walls, incorporating a mix of tropical greenery for a unique spin on your typical hedge wall. The mustard color of our Krystal sofa and Sunflower chair complements the wildflower floral arrangements by Flowers by Lesley, making for a gorgeous backdrop for this incredible event! 

The ballroom set everyone up for success, giving attendees a writing space and comfy seating with our white and gold Louis chairs. This luxe look perfectly complements the stunning recessed chandeliers!

Lovely Lounging & Champagne Break

We love our Sand collection paired with our Esmerelda coffee table! The whole look is finished off with tropical floral arrangements and some brightly colored throw pillows. A fun champagne station was also created with our bookshelves, Elaine coffee table, and Kelly sideboard!

 

But what did we learn? Check out our favorite tips from some leaders within the wedding industry! 

Incorporate Pomodoro into your workflow. Pomodoro is a time-management strategy that breaks tasks down into 25-minutes intervals to help make them more manageable.

It’s all about networking! Connect with others by attending mixers – the shared experience will help foster organic connections and build your circle!

Bubba Feasting Table | Inventory Highlight

Our Bubba feasting tables seats up to 20 people!

The epitome of a table fit for royalty, our Bubba feasting table has enough elegance to elevate any event and the versatility to adapt to any vision or style. As one of the most unique and recognizable pieces in the RW Style inventory, Bubba is always ready to be the center of attention!

Although he may seem daunting because of his size, Bubba is surprisingly adaptable to any seating situation – he can be a showstopping head table for eight or a grand feasting table for twenty. Really want to make a statement? Rent a few Bubba tables to frame your dance floor or rent a few more and use them as reception tables to seat all your wedding guests. 

Our Bubba feasting table works well with every style!

While his size makes him stand out in a crowd, his design is what makes him extraordinary. Although Bubba is the same size as two of our popular Caroline farm tables, his one-of-a-kind pedestal means there’s no seam where two Caroline tables would meet. Since Bubba’s base supports the middle of the table from underneath, there are no table legs for your guests to compete with – meaning you can fit an extra guest on each long side. Now that’s what I call ingenuity! 

Rustic, glam, bohemian – Bubba can do it all. Check out these photos of him in action and I’m sure you’ll fall head over heels for him as I did.

All About the Social Lounge

Bohemian inspired social lounge featuring upholstered seating, rattan seating and tables, and a macrame chandelier. Showcased under the gazebo at Cypress Grove Estate House.

The social lounge is the newest bridal trend and we are absolutely obsessed {you’ve probably seen lots of posts we’ve shared about them ?}! Not only does a lounge add a dramatic and chic statement to your décor, but it can also serves a purpose {giving your guests a stylish area to mix and mingle} so you can feel awesome about making the investment. 

Lounge furniture can offer so many unique opportunities on the big day: 

  • A great area for photos, especially bridal portraits.
  • Creates a cool area near the bar for guests to enjoy during cocktail hour. 
  • Place the lounge near the dance floor so guests can enjoy the show, or take a breather from all the fun! 
  • The perfect addition to any photo booth backdrop.
Bohemian inspired social lounge featuring upholstered seating, rattan seating and tables, and a macrame chandelier.

Soft seating also provides a practical {and fashionable} solution to having extra seating for guests who may not be planning on dancing the night away.  

Check out the photos below for some amazing lounge and style inspiration!

Jewel Toned Lounge

Did someone ask for a mid-century inspired lounge? Yes, yes they did.

And I obliged!

Designing with bold, rich, colors is my absolute fav! In this rental collection, I paired the Dorie sofa with Garnet chairs blending a blue and merlot color palette. The lounge was accented with a combination of short and tall arrangements from my go to floral designer – Flowers by Lesley – giving the lounge a dramatic and elegant feel.

orlando lounge rental jewel tone bohemian inspired lounge with blue sofa and merlot chairs and a mid-century modern buffet

The great thing about this rental grouping is the versatility of going inside of a luxurious ballroom or outside at a venue such as The Acre Orlando or Cypress Grove Estate House. This particular one is going to the Orange County Convention Center for a few days 😉

Quick tip: when designing lounges for multi-day rentals, we choose floral that doesn’t require a lot of TLC and oftentimes opt for potted plants or lots of greenery.

orlando lounge rental jewel tone bohemian inspired lounge with blue and merlot floral arrangements
orlando lounge rental jewel tone bohemian inspired lounge with blue and merlot floral arrangements pillows and textiles

Did you notice Lacie pictured above? Textiles is her thing! No matter what venue we’re traveling to throughout Central Florida, you can best believe she has a neatly packed bin of pillows, rugs for layering, and throws to add a pop of color. She’s is a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to “tossing” said pillows, too.

Before I forget, the pictured mid-century modern buffet (yeah, the one hiding in the corner) – his name is Harry.

Designer tip: adding a buffet or sideboard to a lounge grouping gives the renter extra storage for collateral/marketing materials. If the lounge is being used at a wedding, the extra storage is great for favors or storing gifts.

RW Giveaway : Winter

Y’all, Winter here! I’m so excited to report that I’m retiring from weddings. Yes, you heard me correctly, RETIRING – I’m no longer available for rentals. After 6+ years of being delivered to some of the most amazing wedding venues throughout Central Florida, I’m passing “the cake” to some of these younger sideboards.

Some sage advice for these new retro sideboards moving into the warehouse – Weddings are exhausting! You’re standing on your feet for six plus hours – inexperienced planners have us there for 12+ hours for “room shots”, holding a 1000 pound wedding cake- slight exaggeration, full of floral accents (my allergies could barely handle), with people oohing and awing over you. Child, it was not easy, but I made it happen for so many amazing RW Style couples.

Now you’ve probably got questions about my aging legs and whether or not I’m sturdy. While I was well loved by our brides, I was well taken care of by the Cowart’s. I’m hoping this retirement takes me to an amazing home full of laughter, happiness, and some entertaining. Did y’all enter to win?

Oh goodness, I’m forgetting the best part… they’ll give me a mini makeover to ensure I fit perfectly in your home –  with a fresh coat of paint (several colors to choose from) and a selection of hardware.

See the details below for multiple ways to enter:

Entries will be tallied until June 30th with the winner being announced on July 1st

Good luck – Xoxo,

RW Gals

 

 

 

Jewel Tones // Spring Inspiration

One of the things our couples love most about Cypress Grove is the Old Florida feel which is so hard to find anymore, especially in Orlando! Once surrounded by orange groves, we wanted to play into that old Florida citrus plantation feel and use the Estate’s surroundings to complement that aesthetic.

With the sunlight reflecting off gorgeous Lake Jessamine, golden rays project stunning shades of pinks and oranges which we wanted to capture in the showcased floral. The house itself stands beautifully in a crisp white with emerald green shutters to accent so the same palette was used for our linens and candy buffet. We wanted to show our couples the very landscapes they fell in love with could be implemented into their wedding day details.

We focused on rentals that our couples love to see – a unique dessert display, wood elements, and rustic chairs to complement. Our emerald buffet was the perfect accent piece to Florida Candy Buffet’s colorful display. Our Wesley farm tables and matching French Country Chairs added the southern elegance our couples love and paired wonderfully with our linen covered Captain’s tables! Incorporating two table styles adds such a fun design element 😉

Xoxo,
Alecia

Cypress Grove | Blush + Copper

Introducing Kylie

Anytime we get to dress up Cypress Grove Estate House, we’re excited. Oh, but when we get to design with new tables and chairs **slow clapping*** YES!! Our Kylie farmhouse tables and sand Louis chairs were the perfect addition to this blush and copper color palette.

Styling tip: mix the metals and step away from traditional vessels

We brought in some vintage candlesticks to eclectically clash with the copper flatware. Flowers by Lesley use blush ceramic vessels from our styling inventory for the arrangements. And let us not overlook the tall tapers to add a little touch of drama!

 

Shout out to our pals at Dishie Rentals for the blush stoneware and copper flatware!

Featured Inventory | Iceland

Curating a collection

Yes, we’re pickers; we’re always sourcing and gathering new items for our vintage inventory. During downtime, we can be found at local antique fairs, boutique shops, and flea markets.

While working through a local market, I passed these vintage carts several times. They were filthy, tarnished, missing wheels and needed a lot of TLC. Then Dede spotted them and immediately saw potential. For instance, floral stands or dessert stands.

After a few weeks in the shop, she’s done and ready for events! Meet, Iceland.

Seems like Dede and Flowers by Lesley  had the perfect idea for this floral stand. Afterall, why would we let gorgeous blooms go to waste. Guests can easily enjoy them for days following the event!

Special thanks to AIS Portraits for the stunning photos.

Bohemian Inspired | The Acre Orlando

Bohemian Tablescape at The Acre Orlando

Our bohemian brides love The Acre Orlando, almost as much as we do for weddings + social events. After all, what’s not to love.

The space below is their Mirror Patio – it’s covered with ivy walls complete with outdoor fireplace. Our design team added a macrame chandelier above the feasting table. Our feasting table was dressed with Shibori inspired linen from Nuage Designs  and an array of eclectic centerpieces.

We’ve been obsessed with shades of blue for quite some time – naturally, we were excited when the chosen palette included textiles (full of texture) in warm shades of blue. The table arrangements featured gold cacti, terrariums, blue pottery filled vases protea and exotic wild flowers. We decided to keep the table design eclectic by blending wood table chargers with crystal coupes and sleek flatware.

***did you peep the hanging macrame in the “windows” – it was a perfect accent to their ivy wall. When designing, our stylist will help you enhance and bring out the natural elements of your chosen venue. You know, like hanging macrame in open spaces.

This bohemian inspired tablescape featured the following rentals: captain tables, macrame chandelier, french country chairs, and blue vases. Our friends at Treasury Rentals provided the wood chargers, flatware and glassware. Stationery was provided by Andi Mejia Designs.

Our girl, Lesley, with Flowers by Lesley whipped up the floral and it was captured by The Hendricks.

Real Wedding // Melissa + Jen

We’ll admit it – blogging our events is something we need to get better with. Why not start with a few of our favorite events over the past couple of years! First up, Melissa + Jen’s hip wedding reception.

These ladies were some of the coolest we’ve worked with in a long time. Between their taste in fashion, floral, music and food – I felt a personal invite to the wedding would have been acceptable since we were long lost friends 🙂

Random: Can you believe this image below was taken at Cypress Grove Estate House? We love when photographers capture the property’s uniqueness. I’m sure you’re wondering where this is located –  it’s to the left of the gazebo, along the path, past the trees… (sounds like fairy tale directions, huh ;))

Getting Ready/The First Look

Back to their wedding  – Let’s start by breaking all the traditions! Not only did they see each other prior to the ceremony, they got ready together at Grand Bohemian Hotel. Watching Melissa and Jen, through the lens of Gian Carlo Photography, help each other with hair, makeup, polish and everything in between was so heart warming and exciting. The love these ladies have for each other is a pure joy to witness.

The Wedding Party

It was inevitable that their wedding party would be just as cool as them – these ladies and gents exude a cool and confident demeanor. Their personalities were reflective, not only in the dresses and ties they wore, but the floral bouquets and boutonnieres too. Oh, and did you notice the bride’s bouquets and how uniquely different they are.

Floral provided by Flowers by Lesley

Decor + Floral

Ain’t no party like a Cypress Grove party, cause a Cypress Grove party don’t stop (until 10pm, that is – silly noise ordinance). Not only was the music a priority, the decor was at the top of the list too. They layout included a couple of vintage social lounges (complete with cigars), family style seating, and so many little details.

Merlot + Copper

Nicole and Michael held their outdoor wedding at Cypress Grove Estate House! Featuring  one of my most favorite colors – merlot! This rich hue made an appearance in their stationery suite and throughout the floral. It was even in their specialty rentals from our inventory.

   

Pro tip :: incorporating your color palette or a particular design into your invites gives guests a taste of what to expect at your wedding.
Our floral bestie,  Lesley with Flowers by Lesley, dreamed up a simple but oh, so romantic ceremony-scape. It was complete with flowy white draping and gorgeous gazebo arrangements. Not to mention, the lovely lush garland to drape the back row of seating. And can we talk about how gorgeous these bridesmaids bouquets are? Above all, the hanging amaranthus is the perfect touch! The vintage rentals selected was a mix of rented sofas + chairs from our Chicago and Santa Rosa collections. They also rented farmhouse tables, crossback chairs, and  copper chargers to add a pop of color.  In addition to, great texture in the reception space.
Pro tip :: feature a mix of traditional rounds with rustic farm tables for a unique reception look.

Bubba | Feasting Table

It’s no secret, we are obsessed with farmhouse tables – we’re always looking for an excuse to create a new design, size, or custom stain. After noticing many of our couples pushing tables together to create a feasting table for their bridal party – our Bubba table was designed.

Did you know farmhouse tables are also referred to as harvest tables. Modern farmhouse tables have a rustic tabletop and often incorporate some type of galvanized steel or hairpin legs.

Some quick facts about the table:

  • It comfortably seats 20 people when using standard chairs such as chiavaris with guests surrounding the table.
  • French country chairs are a bit wider, when using them we’d recommend no more than 18 guests
  • It is approximately 16ft long
  • It weighs a ton. Okay, maybe not a ton but he is heavy!
  • It’s perfect for dinner parties too 🙂
  • It’s becoming one of our more popular table rentals (we’re off to build a few more)

Til next time friends!

Inventory in Action | Casa Feliz

Casa Feliz is such a lovely venue on its own but add our vintage rentals and some lush floral and you’ve got yourself the most romantic Spanish style venue in Central Florida! A small patio made the perfect hideaway for the bride + groom to share a sweet moment together before joining their guests at the reception.

RW Chronicles | Orange Blossom Bride Party

This month we got to party with the ladies at Orange Blossom Bride as they celebrated the company’s one year anniversary! Orange Blossom Bride is owned by Amanda Schmidt – her philosophy behind the creation of the publication –

Orange Blossom Bride was created with the Central Florida bride in mind. Yes, there are many wedding websites with beautiful ideas and locations for your big day. The only problem: where are you going to find a breathtaking mountainous backdrop or a gorgeous wheat field that stretches for miles?

That’s not to say that Central Florida doesn’t have its own charms and uniqueness! In fact, many couples from around the world choose to come to Central Florida to exchange their vows. This website is dedicated to all the beauty that you can find in the gorgeous Sunshine State. Orange Blossom Bride is where you will find local venues, vendors, inspiration, and real weddings, along with great ideas and tips.

To join in the celebratory festivities, we created two custom lounges incorporating some of our fav pieces {like Leonard and Pistachio}!

A closer look at the details behind the design.

Inventory in Action | Willow + Emmett

These two are quickly becoming the popular kids over at Cypress Grove! Miss Willow and Mr. Emmett make the perfect pair for events with a rustic elegant feel, a favored theme at this romantic lakeside venue. Instead of the traditional white or ivory draping, the couple opted to frame these two pieces with a fun colored option making their sweetheart display really pop!

Inventory in Action | Willow

Miss Willow traveled to Stetson Mansion not too long ago to model in a styled shoot, and my, oh my doesn’t she look amazing all dolled up!? Julia’s Floral Design provided the fresh floral arrangement along with two floral trees to create a romantic sweetheart table space, along with that luscious bridal bouquet below.

Table of the Month | Transitioning into Fall

It’s time to continue on our ‘Table of the Month’ series. Hooray! September is sort of an odd month…it officially becomes Fall, but it’s still hot as can be here in Florida. Since it’s somewhat of a “transition” month, we wanted that to translate into our table designs. By incorporating a rich color, such as marsala, with a light blush hue, we were able to do just that! Flowers by Lesley made our almost-Fall dreams come true!

RW Events | Table of the Month | Marsala + Blush

For our very first look, we combined hues of marsala and blush with gold touches. We used a lovely Blush Lamour linen from Over The Top, along with the Bordeaux Lamour napkins from GBS Linens. At each place setting, we featured Gold Rim glass chargers with darling gold flatware from Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals. Also at each place setting are dinner plates from the Luxmore Grande Estate. We just love how the deep red napkins pop on top of the china and blush linen. Now for the best part… the flowers! Lesley started off by arranging the pretty blooms in a circle, with clear glass candle votives of varying heights in the center. *swoon!* To finish the look, we added Gold Chiavari chairs to tie in the gold touches.

RW Events | Table of the Month | Marsala + Champagne

For our second table design, we coupled marsala and champagne together. These hues complimented each other quite nicely, and we even incorporated a dash of blush. To start, we used our Gregory farm table, which is one of our favorite pieces. Down the middle of the table, you’ll see a Champagne Micro Matte Sequin runner from Over the Top. Also in the middle, you can see the floral that Lesley stretched out from our first design, to make more of a garland look. Our favorite part of the floral design has to be the Red Amaranthus – it’s the droopy pieces of floral that you see throughout the arrangement! At each place setting, there is a Copper charger from Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals, along with a Blush Lamour napkin from GBS Linens. We think the French Country Chairs complimented the design and farm table beautifully.

RW Events | Table of the Month | Marsala + Greenery

Last but not certainly not least, our third design showcases marsala paired with touches of greenery. We started off with our greenery walls, Fern, to make a statement in the background. In front of the walls, we placed one of our sweetheart tables, Monroe. Lesley converted the garland onto the sweetheart table, and made it drip off the front of the table a bit. We recently discovered this Ivory Organza runner from GBS Linens, and we think it’s stunning across farm tables. At each place setting, we used the Gold Rimmed glass charger again, along with some of our mismatched china, and Bordeaux Lamour napkins from GBS Linens. We think the Silver Industrial chairs add a different element to the design, and we can’t get enough of them! To complete the look, Lesley brought in the clear glass candle votives, and added a bit of floral and greenery to the chairs.

We hope you enjoyed our September tables! If you happened to miss last month’s design, take a peek here!

Vintage Styled Shoot | Highland Manor

Highland Manor is a private home turned special event venue, and one that we love for couples wanting a classic vintage feel for their wedding. The venue boasts stunning grounds with one of the most amazing oak trees I’ve ever seen – it’s draped in Spanish moss and is just oh, so romantic! The manor and it’s grounds made the perfect backdrop for a vintage inspired photo shoot we styled a few months back.

Vignettes | Social Lounge

Favorite social lounge of 2015 goes to…..Kimberly’s design for our Annual Design Challenge! It stings a bit to say it since I came in second, but I can’t help falling in love with this seating area. Her challenge was to create a space that incorporated country with glam and boy, did she out do herself.

Let’s start with the furniture selection. In choosing smaller, more delicate pieces, she has created a sense of elegance and refinement. She used the color of the year, Marsala, which was the perfect pop of color against our white Tiger settee (plus, lots of our brides have or still are incorporating this hue into their color palette). Lesley {from Flowers by Lesley} and Kim were the perfect team, and you can see why. They added the most perfect touches of floral and greenery throughout, and did you see those chandeliers!? What I love the most, though, are the small details meticulously placed throughout, from the cowboy spurs to the scripted labels to the stunning bridal bouquet. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2016’s challenge! – Shadow

I loved this entire wedding. The soft muted colors, the rustic details and the adorable couple! This is a wonderful depiction of rustic elegance. Our double barrel table, Emmett, stood under the bright crystals of a chandelier and was framed in sheer draping to create a dramatic contrast between elegant & rustic. Topped with sweets & goodies, this dessert table became a focal point for the evening! -Katie

Featured Inventory | Mismatched Chairs

Why do we love them? Something about bringing together a group of mismatched chairs just makes people happy. Maybe they bring back memories of ‘the chairs at grandma’s house’ or remind you of gathering every chair from around the house for a big family dinner. Mismatched chairs give an event space a homey feeling. Isn’t that want we all want for our wedding guests? Mismatched chairs are great for ceremony seating, reception seating, or incorporated into a social lounge. They also make a darling backdrop for detail shots {You’re photographer will love them, we promise}. Head over to our Facebook page for a fun quiz to test your mismatched chair knowledge!

Vintage Buffets

Today we’re talking about two of our darling pieces of inventory… our buffets, Victoria and Winter!

Traditionally, buffets {sometimes called sideboards} were found in dining rooms and were used for {you guessed it} serving a buffet of food! The earliest buffets appeared in the 18th century but gained a lot of popularity during the 19th century. Many feature intricate details which just makes them all the more pretty! It’s no wonder they’ve stayed around for son long!

Vintage White Buffet | Victoria

At RW Events, we’ve taken these lovely pieces of history and introduced them to the world of weddings and events! These buffets are being used outdoors, in ballrooms, under tents, in gardens and more! Anywhere the wedding goes, our buffets will gladly follow.

Vintage White Buffet | Winter

We love seeing these beautiful pieces get reimagined for each and every wedding they attend. If you want to add some of this darling history to your wedding, reach out styling@rwevents.com today!

Social Lounge | New Country Meets Glamour

Kim: “When I think of the south the first thing that comes to mind is magnolias. They’re so fragrant and gorgeous {in an understated way}! Sadly, they’re not in season right now but I was still able to incorporate their beautiful, rich green leaves, and they ended up being the inspiration for my entire design! My florist {Lesley} created two stunning wreaths that were woven through two even more stunning crystal chandeliers, and she also used the leaves in the smaller floral arrangements and garland that held back the gazebo draping. We added even more color to the floral by throwing in hints of purple and marsala {the Pantone color of the year}, which helped to pull out the colors in the two floral chairs.

Now, I’m not a ‘glamorous’ type of gal, so when I had to throw crystal into the mix I really had no idea where to begin {other than the chandeliers}. After rummaging through our inventory, I was beyond thrilled when I stumbled across a most glorious collection of crystal decanters, stemware, and assorted vases! An antique silver tray, two decanters, and a monogrammed tumbler {borrowed from my grandmother} made up a mini whiskey/bourbon station, and since I’m slightly obsessed with calligraphy, I made magnolia leaf labels for each decanter. Speaking of things borrowed, my grandmother also loaned me a pair of boot spurs and a sheriff’s badge that both belonged to my grandfather {he was a real life cowboy back in the day!}. Attention to detail is something I really appreciate in design, so I attached the badge to the bouquet and the spurs accented a framed song quote by Johnny Cash. I also added some texture + pattern to the vintage settee with faux leather pillows I had made a few weeks prior. Oh, and if you’re wondering if that’s a cow hide rug sitting pretty under our mini farm table… it certainly is ;-)”

All Wrapped Up | Industrial Chic

Shadow: “My challenge was to create an industrial chic inspired vignette using a color palette of blue, slate, and mint. When designing this All Wrapped Up vignette, I knew I wanted to bring in mismatched metals and dark eclectic elements with a feminine touch. The venue was an empty warehouse so I brought in different warehouse elements such as the trunks, industrial lighting, and painter’s ladders.

I wanted to draw the eye in from top to bottom by creating different levels of height. I based my concept on 2 main pieces, the scrap metal Mr. and Mrs. sign and Rachel, the mismatched backdrop made of wood and metal. No ordinary table would do for this concept, so I created a gift table using Elias, our white ladders and a stained wood board, adding small details to fill in the negative spaces. Industrial reminds me of a shipping warehouse so I knew trunks and crates were a must! I used Bates, our whitewashed trunk to bring in a bit of lightness to this otherwise dark space. Other trunks were used to stack on top of each other, as you see behind the ladders, to place the chalkboard. James, the wagon, was a must have with his metal wheels and mahogany frame.

Floral and greenery played a big part in tying in the color palette. Succulents, hydrangeas and thistle were the perfect combination of blues and greens, while anemones and peach roses bought a light and airy feel. Details such as the lanterns, fan, and window pane tied in the industrial warehouse theme perfectly.”

{Guest} Who’s Here | Backyard Garden Party

Tori: “When I first heard we were doing an RW Design Challenge between the team, I was extremely nervous, but I didn’t want to show it. But I thought to myself, ‘Okay Tori, you can do this. With all the experience you’ve gained from day-of coordination and having brides trust you with their decor, you may have a shot.’ So then I instantly got excited! I received my concept and was told my “bride” was hosting her wedding in her parents’ backyard, and was going for a girly garden party style but didn’t want to use blush or gold. So I started to brainstorm and I instantly thought of sun hats, rocking chairs on the porch, lemonade, and veggie gardens. I knew I wanted to go for a bright, fun, inviting look with the vignette, especially since it’s the first thing guests would see. I went with something a little different than a sign-in book, and instead chose a pretty floral pillow for guests to sign. I loved this since it can be used and enjoyed by the couple later on. The chalkboards provided some extra decor {and directions for signing in}. ‘Let Love Grow’ is a nod to the wedding guests who watered the seeds of the couple’s relationship, and as each person continues to bless and support the love birds, they’ll see that love blossom as the years go by.”

Sweet Spot | Travel Theme

Rachel: “Oh good gracious, where to begin!? When the challenge was initially issued to us gals, I completely panicked {no exaggeration here}. How in the world could I compete with my style savvy team of coworkers? After the 48 hours of shock and terror wore off, I gathered my game plan and began to design.

My bride and groom were to be wed at an airplane hangar with a travel theme. Desserts were super important to the couple, and they wanted the reception to be designed around the sweets and treats. I had seen plenty of beautifully done, romantic, vintage travel weddings before. That being said, I decided I wanted this sweets display to be more in the bright, eclectic and fun direction.

I am so incredibly grateful for my awesome vendor team – David from Weddings by Carly Ane’s, and Jennyfer from The Sugar Suite. We decided to base the five cakes on different countries that we loved. Atop each cake was a flag that said ‘love’ in the language of the various countries. My favorite is the Greek cake with the darling red poppies! Three of the cake stands are from our silver tin collection, and I love how they looked against the ivory dresser. The flowers were kept simple and bright, since we wanted the cakes to be the focal point of the design. I incorporated a few pieces of my favorite vintage luggage, along with our table globe. My favorite part of the design was the playful globe and scripting on the dresser’s chalkboard.”

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.”

Sneak Peek | Inventory in Action

Can we just brag for a second about how utterly gorgeous our vintage furniture looked under Juliana + Scott’s tented reception!? Talk about stunning! Our tufted settees {affectionately known as Mable} and Creamie armchairs were staged near the dance floor so guests could rest their tired feet and then get right back to partying 😉

Lakeside Social Lounge

Shade & lakeside breezes are welcome friends on a warm day, so a social lounge under Cypress Grove Estate House‘s gazebo was a perfect setting! We created a romantic yet airy feel with a simple rustic bench {accented with a dainty lace throw + frilly pillows}, a gold trunk {used as a coffee table} and a pretty pair of armchairs that added just a touch of color.

Mismatched Ceremony Seating

Okay, so we had to share just one more sneak peek with you from Ali + Leigh’s wedding! They featured a few of our antique settees + chairs, side tables, and trunks as their ceremony seating. It created such an intimate feel for their lakeside ceremony, and complemented the vintage vibe of the Cypress Grove Estate House perfectly.

Meet Onyx

Please help us in welcoming the newest member of the RW Style inventory, Onyx! He’s a studly, tufted settee, covered in a lush, black velvety fabric. Onyx would pair perfectly with our wooden beverage cart {maybe featuring some whiskey + bourbon}, and a cigar station, a great place for the gents at your wedding to relax.

French Provincial Sweetheart Table

This is William, our french provincial table, who made an appearance at Cypress Grove’s tasting this week! Isn’t he handsome!? Our friends at Flowers by Lesley created a gorgeous, lush floral arrangement, accented by a few smaller pieces in milk glass + gold vases. Our favorite detail from this look – the gold flatware, of course! Not only is William a great piece for a sweetheart table, but he also works for a sweets station!

Decorative Pillow Accents

Pillows are one of my favorite accent pieces for decor – they can add so much texture and color to a neutral color palette, plus they’re just so darn cute! Check out more pretty pillows featured at Katie’s {our amazing stylist} wedding here.

Lone Star Styled Shoot | The Design

Happy 2015! We are starting off what is sure will be an {amazing} year with photos from our Lone Star Styled Shoot! Of all the styled shoots we’ve done, this one is by far my favorite.

From our stylist, Katie: “The mis-matched chairs were used for the ceremony as well as the GPS {Getting People Seated} Vignette. Within the vignette, we strung the seating chart cards between the chairs and accented them with floral. The Texas flag {one of our fav details} was created with leftover pieces of fabric, including some vintage lace that was sewn over the white fabric to add a vintage element, and bring a feminine touch to the bold colors of the flag. We incorporated this into the Love Birds Vignette by hanging it between two vintage doors. We also played around with napkin fold styles and ended up using Texas Rodeo belt buckles are napkin rings. These small touches helped to keep the theme cohesive throughout the entire set-up. The Social Lounge was made up of Blueberry, Ruby, our Mahogany Trunk, and custom pillows. An awesome vintage truck created the perfect backdrop for this seating area. The ‘All Wrapped Up’ Vignette was made up of our white cabinet with chicken wire {Katie}, red rolling shelf cart {Ryan}, and a vintage bathtub. The idea of this set up was to have guests drop off their gift and then pick up a little gift of their own. Katie and Ryan held gifts, while the Vintage Bathtub served as a cooler for the soda. The old fashion sodas were from Rocket Fizz in Winter Park. We opted for a selection that complemented the overall feel of the day with sodas like ‘Cowboy Cream Soda’. The fun labels, and interesting flavors allow guests to pick their favorite, and helps to create a memorable experience.”

Handcrafted Farm Tables

One of my fav pieces of inventory is our handcrafted farm tables! I adore the deep, rich color of the wood, and how they can be used for laid-back rustic weddings {they look awesome with a jute runner}, or something a little more swanky. Just add some vintage china, gold flatware, and chiavari chairs!

Vintage Gold Tufted Armchairs

These plush, velvety armchairs are fit for a king and queen {a.k.a. the bride and groom}! Pair these beauties with one of our antique tables, add some florals + a pretty backdrop, and I’d say you’d have yourself a pretty amazing sweetheart table vignette.

Our stylist crafted up these adorable swizzle sticks for a vintage inspired wedding, but if swizzle sticks aren’t your thing, try using these at a sweets bar! How perfect would they be as pie, cookie, or cupcake labels!

Antique White Armoire

I absolutely love this piece as a welcome display or guest sign-in table! Filling up that display cabinet with family photos {or photos from the couple’s relationship} adds just the right personal touch, and popping out the desk gives guests the perfect place to leave a note for the bride + groom or sign the guest book =)
