As we embrace week seven of isolation, we can’t help but wonder what life will look like post-COVID, and what new trends we’ll see throughout events in 2021! We’re already noticing an increase in inquiries for micro weddings, and we think this trend will continue for the next couple of years. More than ever, people are yearning to feel connected, and we think we’ll see more intimate weddings complete with farm tables and pendant lighting for a result that feels more like a family dinner than an extravagant soirée.
With so many people looking for positivity and inspiration amidst all of the uncertainty, we also think there will be a rise in bold uses of color. This is right up our alley, and we could not be more excited to see how people incorporate more color into their event designs! Statement wedding decor goes hand in hand with bright colors, and we think we’ll see bigger and bolder ceremony backdrops, escort displays, food/drink displays, and more. Does it spark joy? If so, it’s right on trend for life post-COVID!
In their desire to feel connected, we’re finding that people are also looking for ways to support their communities and stay local! We think we’ll see a surge in requests for eco-friendly and earth-conscious options following the pandemic, with a focus on authenticity and sustainability. With people thinking more about eco-friendly options, we’re expecting to see more planted greenery and dried florals throughout 2021 weddings.
We can’t believe it’s been a month since we started Victory Masks DC, the newest Something Vintage Rentals venture! With all of our events temporarily paused due to COVID-19, we started this effort by creating a donation program working with local artisans and volunteers to sew bright, fun cotton masks to donate to local healthcare workers. As we approach our goal of donating 3,000 masks to hospitals, our staff is now fulfilling requests from companies and organizations to help protect their employees, clients, and partners, and to get our awesome employees back to work!
Are you looking for reusable cotton face masks to protect your staff? At Victory Masks DC, we are selling high quality face masks to help protect your team. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local governments recommend that individuals wear cloth masks in public to protect themselves and those around them. Constructed with tightly woven quilting cotton, each of our Victory Masks filters out 70-80% of particles, even more than surgical masks according to the University of Virginia!
We love a good winter wedding, and this stylish Baltimore fête gives us allll the cozy vibes with a fun boho twist! To keep things cohesive throughout their big day, Heather + Jordan incorporated rich jewel tones, dried elements, and wood and copper accents that were perfectly in keeping with the industrial vibe of Accelerator Space. With the help of their planners at The Otherside Creatives, Heather + Jordan selected pieces like our Phoenix Bar and Bar Back to complement the industrial space. They also incorporated rich jewel tones with luxes pieces like our Cyrus Rug, and brought the funk with our Calypso 12′ Fern Wall! The result was so fun, so boho, and so chic!
