Architectural Salvage as Wedding Decor

Old Door for Wedding Decor

Okay so more of our stuff at Yours For Your Day  that isn’t quite furniture but we’re giving them a Friday Furniture Feature regardless! Even though our old doors and windows are not technically furniture, they do rent out to couples for their weddings all the time so we’re elevating them to furniture status, just for today.

At Yours For Your Day, we’re not your standard rental company. Honestly, we love old and rustic stuff and we love clients who love old stuff too! We search for items all over the place that we can reuse, recycle, upcycle, and salvage. That’s just what we do. We don’t order our pieces from a suppler; we hunt for them, find them in an unfortunate state, fix them up, and make them relevant and pretty. Which brings us to old windows and doors. I think finding architectural salvaged items that we can make into something else is just about my most favorite find!

Trash to Treasure

We’ve got vintage windows that can be used for signs and even some windows on their own stands that can be used to create an “indoor” space outside or a fabulous entrance statement!

We’ve got old doors full of character that can be used as a ceremony backdrop or a grand entrance.

Other doors have been transformed into an escort card station, a bridal getting-ready full-length mirror, a bridal gown photo backdrop, a sweet beverage or dessert bar, and photo gallery! Other doors have even been upcycled into their own version of a farm table! How about some Victorian screen doors that once graced a home in Georgetown? They are free-standing and can also make for an impressive ceremony or reception entrance.

The possibilities are truly endless with these architectural pieces which is why we love them so much! So let your imaginations run wild with all the different ways architectural salvaged items can amp-up your wedding decor!
Back Soon,
Shelley

Lounge Groupings

Furniture Rentals | Denver, CO | Lounge Furniture

Let’s talk about several furniture pieces today! Not specific pieces but rather various upholstered pieces and tables that when put together, create amazing lounge groupings.  Lounge groupings are very popular at weddings. They are ideal for guests during cocktail hour. Mix in a couple of lounge groupings with a few cocktail tables and everyone will be so appreciative and impressed by such a thoughtful gesture! And they make for perfect little escapes at receptions to give guests a quieter spot to talk and visit with other guests, away from the music and revelry!

 

Everyone Enjoys a Good Lounge Session!Lounge Furniture for Rent, Denver Co | Colorado Weddings

Older guests will love that they have someplace chic and comfy to relax. Even the hardiest of party animals will enjoy a soft place to land and catch their breath between songs.  All guests will be woo’d over by a lounge that complements the wedding theme to a tee! And that’s because vintage furniture isn’t just for the vintage themed wedding. Nope, with so many different styles of furniture, the pieces merely look classy, chic, and perfectly curated!

 

 

We love when our pieces get to go out as lounge groupings because they’re great out-of-the-box additions to any event. We constantly hear back from our clients that they received tons of complements from guests about the furniture at their wedding. And that’s sweet, sweet music to our ears!Yours For Your Day | Shelley Hall | Owner, Author | Yours For Your Day Blog

Possum Belly Table

Wedding Rentals | Denver, CO | Yours For Your Day | Rustic Possum Belly TableI probably could have come up with a different name for this piece but Possum Belly was just too cute. And hey, that’s what this type of table is called so why not just stick with a good thing!

When we first found this table, I just fell in love with the way it looked. I had no clue what it was originally used for! All I knew is that it was perfectly imperfect and would fit right in with all of our other misfit rentals! It wasn’t until some time later that I learned it was an antique baking table. I thought perfect, what better table to use for a cake or dessert display?

And that’s where this workhorse of a table shines most brightly! He’s perfect for displaying desserts because he’s deep and wide and fully capable of holding lots of our cake stands! And then there’s the drawers! Like all of our buffets and dressers, any and all of the drawers can be used to hold service ware, flowers, decor, etc. We especially love “flowers” spilling out of those big ol’ rounded bottom drawers that were originally intended to hold “flours”, get it?

Old Furniture Displays are Just Too Cool!

Anytime I can work with a couple who has a vision for something unique, outside of the box, and something other than a standard rental table covered with a standard linen, I am thrilled! Seriously (as my 6 year old granddaughter often says), anything you need a table to display can be displayed on an old buffet, dresser, or in this case, a possum belly table! I mean just look at all of that character!

So don’t forget to give some old furniture a thought if you need a table for something like a fabulous dessert spread! You really can’t go wrong and guests will be so impressed with your creativity and attention to detail!

Thank you dear Possum Belly Table for being so darn fun to own and rent out to people who grow to love you as much as we do at Yours For Your Day!Yours For Your Day | Shelley Hall | Owner, Author | Yours For Your Day Blog

Elliott Vanity

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!

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!

Rent a Vintage Dresser! Wait, What?

Hi there!  Welcome to the first of a 3-part series of introduction posts for Yours For Your Day. So who is Yours For Your Day anyhow?  Well, it’s me (Shelley) and my husband Warren and it’s also anyone else who is willing to jump-in and help us out in these early days of our event rentals company based in the Denver, Colorado area.

Nice to meet you!
Nice to meet you!

So what do we rent?  We rent eclectic (think vintage) furniture and rustic decor to folks who are looking to create unique and utterly original events.  So weddings, parties, corporate events, photo shoots…you get the picture?  Well, maybe not.  I often get confused looks when I say the words “rent” and “dressers” together for example.  And my normal clarification is:  why rent a boring standard rental table that must be then covered-up with a rented tablecloth when you can rent a really cool old dresser, or vanity, or rustic table instead?

 See anything a standard rental table can do, vintage furniture pieces can do better!  They’re basically just tables with a whole lot of charm and character!  But we do have some pretty amazing tables too!

 Mismatched event chairs and benches give guests something much cooler to sit on than traditional rented plastic folding chairs.  Truly eclectic!

Then there’s our fancy upholstered furniture and rustic decor that are great for photo props; take a look at some of these beauties:
