Cherry & Bourbon Inspired Wedding With FLEXX

When vintage is done right, especially at a wedding, the decoration is what really enhances the ambiance and gives guests a sense of nostalgia. This cherry and bourbon-inspired picturesque wedding is the essence of how to put together small, creative decor to create a overarching theme. The small hints of bright cherry carefully placed throughout the dish ware, floral arrangements and splashed on the 1958 Ford brought a playful, whimsical feel to the classic Country Club setting.

Green Event Color Schemes :: Northern Colorado :: Tents Decor Event Rentals

St. Patrick’s Day is one of the first signs that spring has arrived! The Irish holiday is celebrated every year on March 17 and is named after Saint Patrick, commonly recognized as the patron saint of Ireland. Originally, the color associated with Saint Patrick was blue but over the years, the color green and its association with St. Patrick’s Day grew because Saint Patrick is known to have used the three-clover shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish.

Green is now one of the mo...

Sapphire Color Scheme :: Northern Colorado :: Tents Decor Event Rentals

Ever since Kate Middleton displayed her sapphire engagement ring in 2010, sapphire color schemes have become all the rage in wedding and special event décor.

Sapphires are a deep blue gemstone often used in fine jewelry. Sapphires naturally vary in shades of blue, so designing a sapphire color scheme can be tricky if you are looking a very specific shade of sapphire. It is best to be flexible and incorporate a monochromatic color scheme with navies and royal blues. Embrace ...

Ceiling Drapery & Tent Liners :: Northern Colorado :: Tents Decor Event Rentals

A great way to jazz up a celebration is lining the entire top of your venue with fabric!

Rental tent liners can also hide ugly tent boning and soften the overall structure to create an elegant and classic look for a wedding. Tent liners and draping from the ceiling adds originality, depth, and a special spark to make your party top notch!

Using Fruit to Enhance Decor :: FLEXX Productions :: Tents Decor Event Rentals

Little ideas added to your event decor can really take your event from "ordinary" to "AMAZING!"

These flowers are beautiful - but how fun is it to add limes in the water of the vase? You can add color, without adding much cost. And a uniquely designed vase even adds to the decor. You can even take it a step further and actually have the fruit be the centerpiece of the table.

The square vases really make the idea above - Round vases just wouldn't show the fruit as nicely as a square...

Not Your Traditional Centerpiece :: FLEXX Productions :: Tents Decor Event Rentals

Instead of spending tons of money on floral, you can make your flowers stretch by choosing larger flowers, and putting 1 bloom in a slender vase.

First of all, adding a Sweets Table or Candy Bar to any reception, shower or event is a fun way to showcase desserts or candy!

Shepherd hooks are a great way to add floral to a backyard party, corporate event or down the aisle of your wedding - we've all see these or perhaps even used them. But have you thought about hanging lighting using these hooks? Great idea! We are in the midst of finalizing plans for a wedding later in August and instead of hanging floral on Shepherd hooks down the aisle, the bride found these beautiful mini chandeliers to hang down the aisle - love that idea!

Fountains of Everything! :: FLEXX Productions :: Tents Decor Event Rentals

Earlier this summer, we had a wedding that included a BBQ sauce fountain - And to dip in it, skewers of meat, chicken nuggets, meatballs and various other things -The only drawback to this was a few people thought it was a chocolate fountain and dipped a strawberry in it!

I am sure you've seen various new "bars" popping up at events - Mashed potato bar, Mac-N-Cheese bar, dessert bars... They are fun! What makes them even more fun, and unique, is adding some fun glassware into the mix!

Just by adding different shaped glassware into your catering tables really adds some JAZZ! Square vases for dips, a giant margarita glass for chips and a huge martini glass for other dips makes the table so much more fun compared to the usual round bowls. Below is a picture o...

Vintage Wedding :: FLEXX Productions :: Tents Decor Event Rentals

Vintage is back and wedding themes that travel in time are also very popular.

Whoever recalls these magical objects will love remembering them all over again and whoever doesn't, will love to be introduced to them!

Hot Wedding Colors for This Season :: FLEXX Productions :: Tents Decor Event Rentals

Here's a few hot wedding color schemes we are really loving for the upcoming wedding season! Blue and raspberry. The bright blue with a deep red/pink is GORG together! But, what we are really loving is the color white used as an accent. Not the typical, boring white, either.
White with texture, a light pattern, or sequnis - This really makes the white POP!

We are also digging this color palate: Pewter gray and Poppy yellow - White is also a great accent with this scheme!

A chair is a chair is a chair…Or is it?! :: FLEXX Productions :: Tents Decor Event Rentals

All chairs are not created equal!

There are so many different kinds of chairs...made in different ways, with different fabric, different colors. Should you spend some of your event budget on the kind of chair your guests will sit it - Our answer, yes in some cases and no in others.

The photo below was taken at a beautiful outdoor wedding. The scenery was very much most of the decor - If we would have brought in ugly, beat up, maroon chairs, it would have ruined the entire setting of the ce...

Table Numbers

In the grand scheme of event planning, table numbers are probably not the host's number one concern.  Typically, as long as they are there, you're guests are golden.  However, though they do not have the power to break an event, they do have potential to make it.  Sprucing up your table numbers can boost your decor, add to your theme and exceed your guest's expectations.  Check out our favorite ways to group guests and get some inspiration!

One of the latest trends in event design, as well as our newest obsession at Flexx, is square tables and believe that this photo explains why!  Since a 5' round is the most commonly used table at social gatherings, the square design offers a refreshing twist not only to the event world in general, but also to guests who are used to seeing round tables in settings like these.  In addition to it being aesthetically appealing, a ...

The below idea taken from Martha Stewart - cut out polka dots out of metallic paper to add some flair to the photo station.

Add some FLAIR with your CHAIR!

Chairs seem to be forgotten with any event - If you hold an event in a hotel venue, most likely, you will just use their chair. Most of the time, their chairs are UGLY!

Adding tie-backs or bows can add a splash of color to the room, as well.

Renting a specialty chair can also make your entire event look much better!

And finally, if you are having an outdoor event, instead of having plain white chairs, renting a special chair t...
