Table Number Ideas & Inspirations

Seems like a minor detail right? Definitely not. While it’s not a make or break-it project for your party or wedding, it can make a difference in your event photos. Whether you’re the creative type (haha) or not, this is one easy way to spruce up your table centerpiece from the mundane (and distracting really) paper/photo on a tall metal holder. No matter what your budget, table numbers and cards can be cute, themed and add dimension to your centerpiece. They should be a compliment to the centerpiece not a distraction. There are hundreds of ideas so start at the Pinterest link above and check out my favorite real wedding table number here (Italian house numbers). Feel free to share your ideas!

ACME Party Box Company – Party. Rinse. Repeat.

Decor,Things I Love — Edyta @ 4:50 AM

I first spotted these charming drinking jars at The Collection Event Studio in Sonoma, and I’ve been dreaming about them ever since! Why it’s taken me so long to chat about ACME Party Boxes…well I don’t know, but it’s quite genius! Their mission is to give party-throwers a sustainable, reusable and fair way to throw a party (“Parties good, Trash bad!”) whether it be for kids or adults. I’m in love with their concept and even more in love with their products. You’ll find options for favors, tableware, bunting, linens, lighting and centerpieces all for kids and adult parties! Yay for another Bay Area business doing us proud ;)

Bay Area Weddings! Vintage Decor Rentals from One True Love!

Yay!! I was ecstatic when Amanda emailed me announcing her new venture! We know how lovely vintage is, but we also know how painful it is for a pocketbooks, especially when planning a wedding. While services have been popping up all over the country, the Bay Area can finally say it has an official vintage rental place for weddings! (one would think we’d have this already huh?) Be sure to check out the site! Words from Amanda,

“As a bride planning her own vintage-inspired wedding, I was frustrated by the lack of resources available for me in the Bay Area. After collecting vintage furniture and decor for years, I knew where to go to find awesome vintage pieces, I just didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg for decor that I was only going to use for a few hours (turns out I have an obsession with antique farm tables, and those don’t come cheap!) One day I thought to myself: “why isn’t there someone who rents this stuff out?!” Realizing that other brides were probably feeling the same way, I decided to share my collection with other Bay Area brides…and thus One True Love Vintage Rentals was born!

As the first Bay Area company to specialize in vintage furniture and decor rentals for weddings, we’re incredibly excited to provide local brides with an easy and affordable way to add swoon-worthy vintage decor to their weddings, bridal showers, and engagement shoots. We offer everything from farm tables and steamer trunks to typewriters and skeleton keys…anything that is beautifully worn with a little rust or chipped paint! In addition to renting out fabulous furniture and accessories we also offer custom searches, styling, delivery, and set-up services – we’re looking to be a one-stop shop for Northern California vintage-loving brides!”

Call it an Xmas present to myself! How was everyone’s holiday? I need a holiday from the holidays, yay for NYE! While out shopping for marketing crafts, I saw these adorable lights hanging from a store called New Asian Style in San Francisco’s Fillmore District. Fell.in.love. I bought the multi-colored strand for $20 but they had many monochromatic shades as well. Wouldn’t these be fantastic for a wedding reception, party or outdoor decor?! Then…. (more…)

AH! Totally screaming over these!  I wish more couples used cake stands for their weddings.  I understand that a wedding cake feeding over 100 people may not fit on this adorable vintage inspired cake stand by Clara French but maybe consider  inviting less people?! Learn more about Clara and her classic designs at the link above.
