Loot Vintage Farm Tables Four Ways

Planning, designing and bringing our clients’ dream weddings to life is our bread & butter, but when we get the chance to collaborate with other awesome local vendor on styled shoots, we run with it!

Loot Vintage Rentals asked us (along with other Austin event designers: Gypsy Floral & Events, The Nouveau Romantics and 36th Street Events) to style their new Cartwright farm tables in four different ways to highlight their versatility. We created a retro-southwestern, citrus-inspired tablescape and topped it all off with some beautiful blooms designed by our very own Sarah Reichardt.

Check out the photos from Inked Fingers below to see the final product!

Workin’ It {Allan House Fairytale Romance Open House}

In August, we were invited to participate in A Fairytale Romance – Open House + Bridal Showcase hosted by The Allan House as an event designer. Yay, we know this meant we would get to have some fun with pinks and golds and be super girly. We don’t have a problem with that.

We wanted to show brides what it was like to pull together several vendors to create a design, so we invited some of the other vendors to participate in our tablescape. They all knocked it out of the park! Blue Note Bakery provided us three sweet mini cakes – all on Loot Vintage Rentals cake stands. Loot also provided
