The Living Wall

Because we’re always looking for an excuse to create something new!

It typically stems from not being able to find what we need in the marketplace. And sometimes, it’s because we don’t like the options available in the market. For instance, our boredom with the traditional hedge walls prompted us to create something new + needed for our styling clients.

‚ÄúRe‚ÄĚ introducing The Living Wall!

What is the living wall and why was it created? Our owner, Tamuel Cowart, was absolutely sick of the traditional hedge walls. And we couldn’t help but share her sentiments. Traditional hedge walls were overused and didn‚Äôt compliment the events styled. In other words, our clients deserved something better. When we sketched out the Living Wall we weren’t sure of the response we’d received. So we tested it on colleagues first at Cypress Grove Estate House.

Quick list of why it’s a staff fav:

    1. Easy to assemble
    2. Fresh foliage allows us to easily fill the gaps
    3. 100% customizable
    4. Comes in various sizes
    5. Perfect for a bar, sweetheart table, or lounge backdrop

Alpacas, Anyone?

Yep, that’s an Alpaca hanging out at Cypress Grove Estate House with a floral garland. I mean, because why not?! This is one of the many reasons we absolutely love working with Kristen Weaver and her associates!

I really don’t know much about the overall theme or reason behind the shoot, we simply wanted to share this adorable photo of our new friends! There was a cool tablescape, too. Check out the full shoot here

Bridesmaid Boxes | All About Gifting

There’s nothing quite like receiving a thoughtful, well put together gift, and bridesmaid boxes are no exception. Your gal pals put a lot of work into being a bridesmaid – helping with wedding plans, hosting your bridal shower, and more! What better way to thank them than with a sweet, heartfelt gift!?

And we all know there’s only one place to get the perfect bridesmaid boxes – Miscellaneous Market ? With all sorts of goodies from home decor and beauty products to handbags and accessories, you’re sure to find something to suit each of your bridesmaids. With so many options, brides can browse the store for their favorite items or have our team create something special for you!

Bridesmaid boxes are the perfect way to thank your gal pals for all their wedding planning help. Customize boxes with items selected just for each lady.

One of the great aspects of bridal boxes is that you can customize them for each of your bridesmaids. I love the idea of all the ladies receiving a piece of jewelry to wear on wedding day, but mix things up and include one or two items chosen specifically for each lady. It’ll make them feel so loved and will add that much more personality to your gifts.

P.S. Self-care is one of my favorite hobbies, and the blush eyemask and rose quartz roller are the best (pictured above)! The eye mask is silky smooth and the roller feels so wonderful on my skin in the mornings!

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 ?}!

  • 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.

Blush Wedding Design Inspiration | Rentals, Attire, + Details

Blush Wedding Inspiration at Cypress Grove Estate House. Bold floral gives a stunning pop of color again a white backdrop.

Blush wedding palettes are a tried and true trend that does not seem to be going anywhere. However, we do see this color design evolving with new style and ideas being introduced, allowing for blush décor to feel fresh! 

Some new takes on the blush wedding we love are; 

  • Modern d√©cor and accents¬†
  • Shades of pink¬†
  • The mix of blush and black¬†
  • Blush and jewel tones¬†

The classic color also lends itself well to a variety of wedding vibes. Below are four popular décor styles. 

Blush decor, including a vintage dresser and upholstered chairs are subtle but give the perfect pop of color for a spring wedding.

Lounge furniture, tabletop décor, event seating, and linen are all very easy ways to incorporate blush into your design vision. 

Gold decor chairs with a blush pad, specialty chargers, and velvet linen all add a sense of romance and elegance.

Beyond décor, you can also incorporate blush into other areas of your event. For example:

  • Signature Drinks¬†
  • Custom stationery¬†
  • Pink dessert and cake display¬†
  • Bridal and groom attire (if you are feeling fashion-forward!)¬†
  • Get away car! Who wouldn‚Äôt love to¬†exit¬†in their¬†perfect pink¬†chariot!¬†
Who doesn't love a blush wedding gown!? It's subtle but oh, so feminine. Not a fan of colored gowns? Try pairing the traditional white or ivory gown with blush shoes, or have your groom wear a fashion-forward blush or mauve suit.
Blush cocktails, a wedding cake, and dessert shooters are a fun and unexpected way to incorporate color into your wedding day design.

Make sure to drop us a line if you need help planning your perfectly pink day!

Bohemian Wedding Musts

Bohemian style weddings are the newest bridal trend, and they won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. A bohemian styled event is a perfect theme for the fashion-forward and trendy couple.

A boho wedding is going to incorporate a whimsical style with elements of rustic vibes and bold details. If you are wanting to go modern, some edgy detailing is great too! There’s also a distinction between West Coast Bohemian with a desert-inspired appeal and East Coast which can be more tropical inspired and modern.

Macrame, rattan, velvet, and greenery are just some of the bohemian trends. Farm tables with unique seating options and non-traditional tablescapes are essential for receptions. A lounge with bohemian style furniture and elements can create a laid back and stylish atmosphere. Calligraphy and well-placed signage can also bring in an artistic touch. If you are marrying outdoors, a unique tent such as a Sperry tent or TeePee tent can create a dramatic atmosphere, perfectly complemented with alternative décor and floral details.

Whatever your boho-style leans toward, there are some must-haves across the board, and we have all the items you could need for your Bohemian big day at our warehouse!

Xoxo,
Lacie
