Our Los Angeles Summer Marketplace.

On Saturday we hosted our first ever pop-up shop event, the Los Angeles Summer Marketplace! It was an incredible afternoon filled with some of the most talented individuals we've ever met! Our vendors brought some really unique products which were displayed throughout gorgeous booths & they endured the warm Summer heat like troopers. We had an amazing turnout with tons customers that we had the privilege of chatting with! Here's a closer look at the Los Angeles Summer Marketplace.

 One of our favorite details of the event was the Selfiebooth created by our Visual Team! They painted vintage frames & created living walls with moss & assorted succulents. The wall was a fun backdrop for visitors who stopped by to snap a #selfie against the vivid wall. The best part? The living frames are for sale! And... You can still stop by & strike a pose!

We completed the decor with hanging terrariums and assorted grab'n'go's fresh from the arrangement bar! We had the cutest mix with mini glass and clean white summer containers; all completed with vivid succulents, of course!

A Perfect Summer Tablescape

Radiant heat, flourishing succulents, a small breeze, and a vivid palette of colors. The signs of Summer are ripe with a carefree ambience and we couldn't wait for the excuse to take our entertaining outside onto the patio. With our Pantry  stocked with dainty details + cool colors, we knew it was the perfect time to put a new spin on Summer with the perfect tablescape for any summer soiree!

IMG_4112 copyIMG_4139 copy

Soft hues in cool colors set the tone for our entire tablescape. Succulents, worn votives, and soft details were a definite must we knew we had to incorporate!

IMG_4115 copyIMG_4128 copy

Mix and match cool browns, teals & blues, white, and grey to stay on the cool side of the color wheel. We layered a striped linen between plates and tucked the back underneath the bottom plate for extra appeal. Votives make the cutest containers! Pot succulents and top with white pebbles for extra pop.

IMG_4151 copy IMG_4157 copyIMG_4168 copyIMG_4161 copy

These tarnished grey votives were a perfect match. Amazing texture, right?!  We incorporated  these along with a creamy white votive that has a reflective, seashell-like finish. For the larger succulents we added a few larger white accent stones.

Slightly tarnished silverware is the perfect addition. They have just enough wear to be elegant & sophisticated, but also carry a whimsical Summer feel that is a necessary addition for a complete tablescape. Votives are mixed and matched along the table, lovely glassware is added, and you're ready to celebrate Summer!

IMG_4145 copyIMG_4214 copy

While we love a bright, vivid palette for summer, we were in love with this calming tablescape that would literally set the table for a sophisticated summer event. Succulents, lovely votives, and captivating colors: what else can we ask for?! We hope you found some inspiration (and find a reason to get outside)!

Itty bitty details, like color seeping through cracked eggshells and bits of gold leaf stuck to color-stained fingertips, kept us inspired throughout our egg-citing crafting get together.
