Spring is in the air! Horray for the month of March! I can almost see the tulips and daffodils popping up from under the remaining few inches of snow!
As we are busily preparing all types of Polished plans for our wonderful Spring and early Summer clients, we were happily side tracked by another project last week. When our friends over at The Plumed Serpent Bridal in Westport called and asked us to design their store window for the month of March- we jumped at the chance to leave a Polished mark on this beautiful bridal salon. Inspired by all things cheery & bright, we fell in love with this aqua and ivory print tablecloth from Wildflower Linen. We knew we had to have it for the window display, and built everything else around it!
And then we saw these chair covers, also from Wildflower Linen, and they reminded us off the cascading layers of a taffeta wedding gown. If ever there were a reason to have a chair mimic a wedding gown, this was it!
The tabletop is from our friends at Party Rental Ltd and the little touches of aqua in the charger and flutes are so sweet! Paired with some vintage milk glass and simple baby’s breath, this table just makes me happy!
And then the dress…but of course, there is a dress! This magnificent bridal gown is by Oscar de la Renta with a lace sweetheart bodice and lace peplum over a satin skirt. I am told the peplum is most likely not a trend that will be sticking around, but I just think this dress is so sweet because it is slightly different than many other wedding gowns. And I am a total sucker for lace and wedding gowns. Sigh! We paired the dress with this Spring Fling necklace from Banana Republic adding a splash of bright color to the overall look. Who says bridal has to be all white? Boring!
Speaking of “not” being boring…we used this handmade coat stand as an easel for our company sign! Practical and fun!
