We are lucky here in St. Louis to have some really great rental companies who carry some fun items and who think outside the box as well. About a year ago, I suggested to Cheryl at The Aries Company that they should let us (the planners) come and design their showroom for them! They have such a large showroom space and the opportunity for some fun vignettes is definitely possible. Since then, I have now had the honor of designing and working with the Aries team to create two tablescapes (and one ceremony space!) for their Lunch, Wine and Design showroom events. Aries offers many different rentals, but they also offer way more than that. From custom lighting and draping, they can provide your event with much more than just chairs and chargers and bring a little bit of pizzazz into your wedding day.
For our second vignette at the Lunch, Wine and Design event, we wanted to do something a little more modern for the upcoming Spring and Summer timing. We worked with Julie from Ten Four Paper to create a fun pattern that completely matched the beautiful linen colors we picked from Sitting Pretty.
The pattern was utilized in a variety of places. We worked with Aries to custom create a vellum in the pattern to cover two of their drums that would then be hung over the table. We then pulled it into the ceremony vignette, and we will have more pictures of that coming soon on Facebook! Then Julie designed some fun menus for us, that fit perfectly in the square white plates from Aries and sat on top of the beautiful coral napkins.
We just loved how this table came out, and we love what the other vendors created as well! Check out more of the tables on Aries Facebook Page!
