A few months ago, we were offered the amazing opportunity to partner with Wedding Wire and Pantone. Um hello, dream come true! The creative team at Wedding Wire is always SO fun to work with, and we were beyond excited to get this opportunity to work with them again. The goal was simple: create four wedding color palettes for 2019!
Throughout the next couple of weeks, we’ll share all four of these different palettes with you. First up: Love in Bloom! Inspired by romantic berry hues, pops of coral (it is the color of the year after all!), and lots of lush, overflowing flowers, this palette is sooo dreamy. We knew we wanted to keep things light and airy, so we opted to include our brand new Robin Chairs! We also incorporated another new piece, our Coraline Merlot Settee, to bring in that gorgeous pop of berry.
These new pieces were so perfect for the vibe of the shoot, plus they complemented the over-the-top stunning florals by Rosy Posy! All in all, we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. We were so inspired by the team of talented vendors we got to work with, and we hope that translates to the photos pictured below! In the meantime, be sure to stay tuned for for more peaks into this gorgeous collaboration!
This midcentury beauty is an instant fave! Set up here alongside one of our Bradley Pillars, the result is simultaneously light, airy, and romantic. In the next couple of months, we’ll be transforming these extra large pillars into a set of three smaller pillars, still a crisp white and perfect for displaying ceremony florals!
How gorgeous is our brand new Coraline Settee?! Upholstered in a lush, velvet fabric, her color is a mix between merlot and berry, and we could not be any more obsessed! Great for formal portraits, sweetheart seating, and more, we know Coraline is going to be SO popular.
Stay tuned for a post on the palette “The Golden Hour” with lots of rattan and earth tones!

Last weekend, I got to throw an over-the-top, fun, and girly baby shower for my BFF, and I’m SO excited to share the photos with you below! Working at Something Vintage made things pretty simple! I based the party’s color palette around the invitation suite– for the most part, I wanted it to be fairly neutral with pops of color. Think lots of whites, soft blush hues and metallic accents with bright pops here and there! I knew right away I wanted to incorporate pieces like our Dupont Whitewashed Farm Table to create a chic buffet, and our Penny Copper Stools were the perfect way to bring in those pops of metallic I wanted. I always trust Dawn’s vision and everything she touches turns out sooo amazing, so I kept it in the SVR fam for florals too. She created multiple lush arrangements in addition to a super pretty floral crown for the mom-to-be. All in all, the day was picture perfect and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. Now we just have to wait as we count down the days ’til baby Gates arrives!
Did you know Dawn can also make kick a$$ florals?! She has been taking on more and more floral jobs in the past year, and we’re so excited to see where 2019 takes her! This baby shower had a fairly neutral color palette- ivory and blush with metallic accents- so I really wanted to bring in some bright color with the florals. Dawn stepped up and incorporated pops of pink, red, yellow, and orange. The arrangements were full of gorgeous peonies and poppies (hello, new favorite flower!) as well as lush greens and some dreamy spray roses. All in all, the flowers were exactly what I was looking for, and went perfectly with the overall design of the event!
A couple of weeks before the shower, Dawn texted me and asked if I would be interested in a fringe backdrop for the shower. Obviously, the only acceptable response was “Yeah, DUH!” This backdrop kind of became the centerpiece of the whole shindig! It was displayed front and center with one of our Penny Copper Stools and a combo of our Maya and Luna Rugs. As the party progressed, it was the perfect spot for all of the guests to pose for photos in front of!
On the way out, guests were handed pink bubbly to pop in celebration when baby Gates arrives! Custom labels by Label with Love made the favors even more special, and Nika from Calligraphette Co. worked her magic on a copper sign to tie everything together!

Even with wedding inquiry season in full swing, we’ve been getting sooo many requests for school fundraisers! So many, in fact, that we decided to dedicate a blog post to it! It can be a daunting task for our clients to have to transform gyms for an elegant night that fits their theme, but incorporating awesome vintage and handmade pieces like ours can make a huge difference.
Incorporating reclaimed wood farm tables is always a great way to elevate a space’s design! Favorites like our Dupont, Brentwood, and District Farm Tables are great for sit down dinners, and pair well with a variety of chairs. For auctions or events where dinner won’t be served, we always suggest bringing in a mix of our Pub Height Tables and our Girard and Quincy Cocktail Tables for guests to mingle at. Our farm tables are also great options for food stations!
When this sweet couple reached out for event styling and florals, they were recently engaged and struggling to bring their vision to life for their big day! Enter SVR. Angela + Jarrod wanted an intimate November wedding, and right away, we felt that their vibe meshed sooo well with our personal style. Basically, it was a match made in heaven!
We opted for a super neutral color palette since Angie has been partial to white her whole life. We also brought in wool and leather as key elements to cozy up for this winter wedding.
For cocktail hour, we styled in a mix of upholstered pieces for guests to lounge on. We opted for classics like our Harrison Tufted Leather Sofa and Georgetown Leather Chairs, in addition to our brand new Robin Chairs! To tie everything together, we brought in the warm wool white and gray pillows. For their intimate reception, we incorporated family-style farm tables with knit accents, raw wood, and leather details for a warm and inviting feel. This was our Plan B because it was too wet and cold for outdoor dining, but I think it ended up just as good as Plan A.
We kicked off fall wedding season with a fun one! Brandi and Keith are both from Southern Maryland, so they opted for an early October wedding in Huntingtown, MD. For florals, they brought in lots of fall colors like purples and deep reds, but the couple also chose to incorporate some lighter hues throughout their big day! For their reception, Brandi and Keith gave guests a place to relax with a custom lounge package complete with blue velvet favorites like our Chesapeake Sofa and Faye Dusty Blue Chair. They also brought in a mix of pieces with reclaimed wood elements like our Logan Arbor and Columbia Whitewashed Bar. All in all, this couple’s big day had a light and airy feel that was focused on fun!
It’s hard to pick SVR’s favorite style, but we reaaaaaally love midcentury 60s-70s funk! In our world, #MCM doesn’t stand for #ManCrushMondays. Instead, it’s #MidCenturyModern all day, EVERY day. We’ve been adding to our collection of midcentury modern pieces like crazy lately, and we’re so excited to share a round-up of some of our go-to pieces! One of the reasons MCM is one of our favorite vibes to work with is because it simultaneously feels both retro and modern. From sofas to credenzas to lighting to tabletop, we’ve got alllll the midcentury goodies! Did we mention ours are all authentic MCM pieces we’ve overhauled? In the photos featured below, you’ll see some of our favorite pieces like our Emerson Wire Settee, Benning Midcentury Credenza, and Rizzo Brass Lamp. Whether you’re planning your next corporate event, or looking for pieces to set your wedding apart from the rest, midcentury is always fun and sure to wow your guests!
FAVORITE. PICTURE. EVER. Seriously, we can’t believe how good Sarah Bradshaw and the ladies at Sweet Root Village made our Archie Chair look! Archie’s orange suede fabric and brass legs look so perfect with Sweet Root’s amazing florals, and this rad orange backdrop is sooo fun. (more…)
We’ve been quiet on the blog lately, and we have to admit, busy season is in full swing and we are going a little crazy over here! That being said, we were a part of an awesome editorial last year and it just got picked up by Style Me Pretty, so we couldn’t resist sharing some more info! Veronica Rogers is basically a creative genius, and working with her is always such an amazing experience. Collaborating on this wedding editorial was no exception! Jardin Du Bois feels like both an Italian villa and a secret garden, so the shoot has a super ethereal, dreamy vibe that we are ALL about. Favorites like our Sonoma Crossback Chairs make an appearance, plus other fun decor items like our assorted vintage birdcages! We are sooo excited for you to see how gorgeous these photos turned out- seriously, Bonnie Sen is crazy talented and these images are STUNNING! Fingers crossed, it won’t be so long until we post again! In the meantime, be sure to check out even more photos online on Style Me Pretty.
