Marquee Inspiration Room

i recently had the opportunity to collaborate with some of my favorite vendors on designing the inspiration room at marquee event rentals . my friend emily of birddog wedding asked me to create centerpieces for the two month installation. it had to withstand the entire time without water so that immediately nixed fresh floral and lead me to design this naturally dried preserved centerpiece. having never worked with this medium before, i approached the task as a creative challenge and i could not be more satisfied with the final outcome!

in addition to the preserved centerpiece we were able to incorporate our collection of brass candlesticks and bud vases as well as our favorite antique apothecary bottles filled with dried flax and lavender. potted cactus in aged terra cotta completed the design to create a full tablescape!

emily conceptualized the chic moroccan inspired design which included a perfect blend of shimmery metallics, natural wood, cool blue tones, organic elements and pops of vibrant color. she also hand-made this amazing tassel garland which completely tied the whole thing together!

carm collins provided the charming hand-lettered placecards and menu on colorful pink paper. but our favorite was the antique mirror and vintage easel she used for vendor credits. we then used a curly piece of grapewood and a few airplants to adorn the top and tie it into the rest of the design!

the best part was having free reign to select from marquee's extensive selection of rental items. we especially love the metal stars and lanterns hung to create a bohemian vibe. all the furniture, place settings, linens and lounge decor can be found at their showroom and used to create your next special event!

big thank you to kristen kilpatrick for all her efforts in capturing this fun project for us!
