Michelle and John at the The Grand Island Mansion: A Holiday Affair!

DSC_0003

We met with Carmen (the mother of the bride) several months before the wedding, she was a doll from the start! She was so well prepared with a folder full of magazine clippings and pinterest finds… things that inspired them spilled onto our desk. Old world style with almost a Victorian feel, soft buttery shades of champagnes, ivories, blushy cremes and the softest greens were the colors that drew their attention. Michelle (the bride) was a very classy girl with a J. Crew sense of style, timeless and elegant, she opted for topiaries on her guest tables. The family loved mercury glass (which is incredibly popular right now), so we planted tiny trees inside different shapes and sizes of them for each table.

They also went with a slight travel theme for the reception. There were different table names that corresponded with certain areas the couple had visited, as well as globes and maps on the sign in table! This was a very classy event, so detail oriented, it went without a hitch! The perfect holiday look, and the most amazing family to work with, we had a great time!

Hope you all enjoy the photos and we also hope you all had a fabulous Holiday!

Cheers to the New Year,

Chelsie

The alter arrangement was a very organic design of white hydrangeas, combo roses, ivy, and citrus!

Topiary centerpieces in mercury glasses looked clean and classy. There were chargers and custom menu cards on the tables that really complimented the holiday decor in the room, we loved the simplicity!

Michelle’s bouquet was stunning, a combination of soft ruffly textures and flowers with movement.

Holidays at the Perez House

IMG_1923

Hi guys!

We have been crankin’ away at our holiday decor lately! Between our pop-up shop and our own Christmas planning…let’s just say thank god for online shopping and rush delivery! With all this holiday decorating our minds get so consumed with all things snowy and sparkly! Decorating can almost get a little repetitive. That is never fun. So we really try to keep an open mind and let the decorations place themselves! Here are some photos of things we love to pull out during the holidays, old vintage toys, shiny brites (mass amounts of them!), tinsel, flocked trees, candy canes, and lots of old santas. Hope this can inspire an idea or two for those of you who are running around crazy still decorating or planning to host a party!

cheers!

Got Grandma’s old punch bowl laying around? Spice it up with a bunch of Christmas odds and ends! We have this one sitting on the coffee table…

…normally we store all of the ornaments in this trunk for the year. We got a little lazy and pulled them out halfway, then realized it looked kind of cute! This doll was a family joke for a while too…she can look a tad creepy…so we took turns posing her around each others rooms! I think she finally found a home with the other Christmas toys…

Thanksgiving Week… Part Two: The Wedding

DSC_0070
Winter peonies!!

Hi guys!

We had so many photos from Thanksgiving week that we had to split them up into two posts. Even though Thanksgiving is over, we still love the fall shades: ruby reds, burnt oranges, golden browns, and rusty amazingness! Some of these goodies will transition to winter, and sadly, some of them will go away until next year. The bright side about new seasons is new fun things at the market to play with.

Early December is now finally here and we are already using all kinds of pine and wintery textures. More holiday looks will be up shortly, we just couldn’t let these end of autumn photos go unseen…we are also finishing up our plans for our pop up shop at Anthropologie in the coming weeks!

Getting excited,

chels & jack

My two best friends… I should probably be drinking more of the water and less of the coffee!

Maybe a few snips of this would look nice?
