Vintage furniture pieces are the ideal substitution for your average linen-covered display tables at weddings.The Elliott Vanity is one of our star performers ready to step-in and amp-up any display with style, grace, and character!

Here’s the Elliott all dressed up as a beverage station! My favorite aspect of using vintage furniture as a display table is being able to use dresser, buffet, and vanity drawers for additional display space!

Another fine characteristic of The Elliott is his grand mirror. It’s particularly charming when displaying a gorgeous cake or styled dessert bar. The reflection is stunning in photos and will give guests a 360 degree view of all those yummy treats!

Or really just about any display you can think of! The Elliott, like so many of our pieces, is just so darn versatile! And what a fantastic way to add so much charm and sophistication to your wedding. It’s all those little details that come together to make for a spectacular event!

Anyone else have some creative ways in which they’ve used vintage furniture pieces like our Elliott Vanity? Would love to hear how you may have incorporated lovely old furniture into your wedding or event!

Aspen Arbors

We love our aspen arbors and so do our clients! They make for the perfect ceremony backdrop and can be used for both indoor and outdoor weddings. And they are so darn versatile because you can dress them up or dress them down! Add a few flowers, spectacular. Add some draping, dramatic! They’re rustic, they’re all natural, and they are all Colorado!

Oh and hey, if you pair them with our Aspen Fence Sections (which create the most amazing ceremony entrance) you have a creative way to take a big open space and turn it into an intimate ceremony area.

These arbors are very popular with our clients. They go out to weddings all over the place and on a very regular basis. That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’ll be adding even more arbors to our inventory in the very near future. Stay tuned for their arrivals!

And we can set up these puppies on any surface! We’ve even got some nifty aspen weights that not only look great but keep the arbors held fast to the ground. Even on a hard surface like concrete and even in the wind, they’ll stay upright, no problem!

Right now we have the Estes Park; perfect for smaller areas but still dramatic with a full 8 feet in height! And we also have the Kremmling which is the larger of the two and has a great amount of space within it to accommodate a cute vintage table, vanity, or dresser to serve as a ceremony or altar table!

So happy to share our aspen arbors with you today and so excited to add some fun new styles in arbors soon!

Mismatched Chairs

Are you thinking outside-of-the-box when it comes to planning your wedding or other special event? Standard folding chairs not doing it for you? Great!!! We’re on the same page and today we want to introduce you to our Mismatched Chairs!

Mismatched Chairs | Vintage Chairs | Wedding Rentals | Colorado

Aren’t they fun?! My favorite saying is “No one will ever remember the chairs at your wedding…unless they’re AMAZING!” Every aspect of your decor will emphasize the theme and overall “feel” of your wedding and that includes the seating!

We love a mix of white chairs, brown chairs, benches, and upholstered pieces to get that truly eclectic and laid-back look. Here are some more great reasons to consider using mismatched seating for your event:

  • THEY LOOK AWESOME!
  • No ugly chairs cluttering up the photos of your big day (your photographer won’t have to creatively shoot around them!)Vintage Rentals Denver | Rent Mismatched Chairs | Mismatched Wedding Chairs
  • Your guests will be completely impressed with your attention to every detail, even right down to the seating!
  • Mismatched chairs are perfect for rustic, vintage, eclectic, and romantic themes
  • They are perfect for outdoor weddings
  • These chairs are comfy and look great with vintage reception tables or farm tables

Best Ways to Use Mismatched Chairs

  • Yours For Your Day | Wedding Rentals | Wedding Decor | Denver, Colorado

    Use them for all of your ceremony or reception seating for a total eclectic look

  • Mix them in with some standard seating at your ceremony to still get that eclectic look for less money
  • How about just the front rows at your ceremony for family and special guests
  • Perfect for your reception head table or sweetheart table
  • My favorite: aisle decor (just the first chair on the aisle for every row or every other row and adorn them with flower clusters or greenery)

Additionally, our mismatched chairs pair perfectly with our aspen arbors ! So don’t just roll with whatever your venue may have for chairs or think that a standard folding chair is your only option! Get creative with every aspect of your decor and make it eclectic with some amazing mismatched seating!
Take care and happy planning!

Have It All Image

We Can’t Have It All!

I’ve been absent from the blog for a few weeks now and I apologize for that. We’ve been traveling both for my husband’s business and we also went on a road-trip to look for new items for our Yours For Your Day rentals inventory.

Vintage French Wash Stand
My favorite road-trip find: a vintage french wash stand!

I share something in common with our clients who are planning their events and are completely overwhelmed with all of the choices out there! I absolutely love vintage, weathered, salvaged, rusty & crusty stuff!  And while there’s a whole lotta stuff out there that is wonderful, most of it is just not quite right for our rentals inventory!

Like so many, I also spend a lot of time wandering through Pinterest, various blogs, Facebook posts and tweets looking for all of those amazing “just right” details.

Just like our clients who are trying to decide on what they want their big event to look like and the experience they want for their guests, I too am always in the process of evaluating what I want my curated collection to look like and what I want my clients to experience when working with
Yours For Your Day.

So here’s what I do to narrow down the details as I’m adding to my inventory and If you are planning for a big event, you too can use this exercise:

 

 

 

 

Make a list of all of  the things that are most important to you for your big day. Is it the food, the decor (my personal favorite), the music, the cake, your photos?  Then incorporate those priorities into your desired guest experiences. What do you want your guests to “take away” from each of those aspects of your event? Now take all of those details you’ve been dreaming of and utterly bombarded by, and decide what best fits into your newly incorporated list of priorities. If something doesn’t “fit”, get it off your list. Continue to whittle away at the list until you have aligned all of the “just right” details with your priorities and then focus on making just those details come to life.  Oh, and stop looking for new details after that, you’ll drive yourself crazy!

Ah, there’s more of those “just right” details! Southwest Boho Chic Shoot (See Credits Below)

Anyhow, I thought I would share with you today just a bit of my challenge and how I  go about setting goals for creating my collection of eclectic rentals and how to best meet the expectations of my clients. I hope that you may be able to apply some of what I’ve learned, to planning for your event because… we really are in this together!

Back soon,
Shelley
