Crate and Barrel Registry Event

We had the pleasure of taking part in a private event at Crate & Barrel this Fall with Southern Bride and Groom, organized especially for engaged couples looking to register for gifts and to meet local wedding vendors. We love our wedding work, but it's refreshing and invigorating to mix it up when we can, and this was one of those occasions. The Sunday morning party was coordinated by A Southern Soiree, a fantastic planning company, who invited us to share our work (thanks, Gina!). Creating florals for this event was especially fun because we got to design the entire table from florals to flatware, putting our own stylistic spin on Crate & Barrel product. We're interested in doing more full table styling for weddings, and this was a helpful opportunity to explore that process with creative freedom. And what an all-star team of vendors to work alongside — Mikkel Paige did a stunning job capturing everyones work with her lovely photographs. Other vendors included Rocky Top Catering, Event Espresso Catering, Kendra Scott, Thomas Blake Films, Mason Dixon Designs, and Southern Sugar Bakery.

This set-up was done by A Southern Soiree, who co-ordinated the event. Their table was so simple and lovely, and we loved getting to feature our floral arrangements with their elegant design.

Our table was so much fun to put together. We loved the color palette that emerged from honey to coral toned local Dahlias, just-starting-to-turn Dogwood branches, periwinkle Caryopteris, copper-black Ninebark, and caramel-green Heuchera.  Little did the folks at Crate & Barrel know we'd request soy sauce bowls and a velvet curtain to help pull our tablescape together—there were just so many fun pieces to choose from!
