SIGNATURE FARM TABLES

If you've been following our Instagram, then you know some exciting updates for our rental inventory! We have handcrafted farm tables in the works for our 2016 clients, designed to seat 5 on each side! When we first introduced farm tables to the Idaho event market, they were nabbed up left and right and well loved. However, we found that we kept wishing we could seat more at a table then what those first designs allowed. So, our new tables will seat 5 on each side comfortably and feature a more classic leg that is a little more elegant than the traditional farm table style. We have pictured below the concept for what we are currently working on in our "Santa" shop. We will have pictures this winter showcasing these beauties!

Ira + Lucy Wedding Lounge Design Basics

 Ira + Lucy Wedding Lounge Design Basics

Lounge-Concept-e1437798644569.png
Details-e1437798753306.png

We love us a beautiful AND functioning lounge or multiple lounge set ups at weddings and special events, including corporate events. Lounges offer comfortable and intimate conversation areas that guests can sit back, enjoy cocktails, watch guests dance the night away and also work as awesome props for bridal party photos. However, there are specifics you should keep in mind when planning your lounge. Ira + Lucy has been designing lounges for weddings and events for three years now and we are happy to share some insight with you.

 

  • RENT the splurges and utilize your own home decor! Get frugal! Rent the larger items, like the sofa, but source some of your own decor. Lamps? Vases and candles? Even throw pillows or an accent rug. We often incorporate the client's personal belongings into the design, BUT beware, don't use something that has high value or can easily be swiped from a guest that you care a lot about. Items below are coming soon! Inquire to reserve!
  • Accent with accessories. Add a pop of color with custom pillows, floral design and signage. Rent from local designers or hit up Home Goods, TJ Maxx, Amazon or Target. I personally love discount designer fabric warehouses were I can find quality and gorgeous fabric for a fraction of the price and then I sew covers over pillow inserts I already have! PLUS, many of these stores have pretty flimsy and floppy pillows. Either invest in fuller pillows or cut a small hole in your cheaper pillows and add filler! You want your pillows to have body! Learn how to do this easy sew project and save yourself a ton of money over the long haul! Perhaps I'll teach a class and I can show you! Stay tuned! Let me know if that is something you'd be interested in!
  • Utilize the decor for photos. I always connect with the photographer before one of our events and let them see the design boards and special decor details. When you are doing your pre-ceremony pics, have your crew carry out the sofa, loveseat, settee and accent chairs for some out of this world photos! 
  • Hire a wedding designer! A designer thinks through the logistics! Delivery, insurance, floor layout, best location for your lounge (don't place it too far from your dance floor and bar!) A designer also knows how to achieve the style you want: shabby chic, rustic elegance, luxuries, modern contemporary, french country and more! You can learn more about the difference between a wedding coordinator and designer right here!

Hope this helps you with decisions for your custom lounge at your wedding or special event! We specialize in wedding and event design and would be thrilled to help you design your lounge space. Be sure to check out our variety of special accent seating, including sofas, settees, ottomans and more! Everything listed in this post is available through us to rent! YAY! *top inspiration concept image from Pinterest.

Savings!!! Right now until the end of August 2015, new couples who book Ira + Lucy for both coordination and design will receive a sofa, settee or love seat from our rental inventory at no additional rental cost! That is a savings up to $300!!!

Ira + Lucy Black and White Bohemian Wedding

Black and White Bohemian Wedding BoardI can't get enough of this "Boho" vibe that we are seeing all over! Perhaps it's because we have a very special Ira + Lucy couple getting married in July, who rock this Bohemian Chic look like no other! I've been on a black and white, or just white design kick lately and when I stumbled on these black and white geometric poufs for our rental inventory I squealed with delight! I ADORE these modern boho seating options. Our poufs are not the "cheapy" ones out there that are super soft and collapse when sat on - I don't know about you, but the last thing I want is my bride and groom or any of their guests getting stuck in a pouf! Ours are perfect for seating at a dining table or lounge set up! Keep it chic with black, white, greenery, and pops of wood and bronze tones! You can't go wrong with a black and white bohemian wedding design! GORGEOUS! Be sure to reserve your Ira + Lucy Geometric Poufs for your wedding or special event! We require rentals be finalized 30 days prior to your event! Get crack'n!

One reason I just adore the royal blue color is the sophistication it carries AND when used for Bridal Portraits, just imagine how well the dress will be highlighted! This collection can be styled in countless ways. It can have an Old Hollywood Glam look, Equestrian Ralph Lauren Inspired, Victorian Vintage...soooo many options! Now we just need to figure out what to call these beauties! Any ideas!00909_6qeHpgU6CFw_600x450Royal Blue Velvet Settee

Our Latest Creation ~ Faux Mantel

It's finally done! Our handcrafted faux fireplace mantel made its debut this weekend at Bride Victoria and Groom Tyler's Wedding at the Linen Building. It was the absolute perfect venue for blending vintage and modern in a simple and chic style. Victoria handled all of her decor and contacted us for help with the ceremony design. Faux MantelSweeping drapery softened the loft style space. We dimmed the lights to help accent the candlelit isle and to draw the guests' eye to the front of the exposed brick and beam designed room. Our backdrop stood tall with soft layers of flowing fabric highlighted by one of our crystal chandeliers above. I am so in love with our brand new inventory item; our handcrafted Ira & Lucy Faux Fireplace Mantel. I was so overjoyed seeing the smile on Victoria's face and how excited she was! Victoria's Mom brought some of her decor elements from the reception and we help add some styling to the area, keeping it simple per Victoria's direction...a few vintage books, old bottles and floral. We took a great amount of care in specifically designing the mantel for our clients' variety of needs in mind:

  • SIZE: 5 feet wide by 4.5 feet tall! It was important to ensure the mantel was not overwhelming or too small... With a couple and the officiant standing in front of the mantel, the design can still be appreciated. Floral design and decor will perfectly accent the mantel and alter area. The inside space can feature styling, candles etc without fear of burning the underside!
  • VERSATILE: the mantel can easily be transitioned from an alter space to located behind the sweet heart table! Victoria and Tyler did this! The mantel's height and width looked perfect behind the table!  It's also great for a lounge set up! Our settee's look fabulous with it!
  • CONSTRUCTION: Thank goodness this isn't too heavy! We've also designed the mantel to have anchors for outdoor setups (secretly hidden behind) for added stability.
  • DESIGN: We paid attention to the small details! Beautiful wood details, a vintage elegance, but easily paired with modern styling. Finished with custom paint, distressing and protective finish.

Faux Mantel Details

It's in the little details! Being part of the Vintage Rental Industry I have the joy of networking with some other fabulous Vintage Rental Biz owners and we often talk about the itty bitty details that most have no idea what we juggle. It is so incredibly important to me that our clients are overjoyed and pleased by the service and product they get from us. So, taking the time to pay attention to the small things ends up making a HUGE difference. The mantel looked stunning this weekend, however I found I wasn't perfectly pleased with the color. So, I will be refinishing the paint so it'll be closer to an antique white and not quite as creamy, with the gray still peeking through where it is distressed. In order to have it juuuussst right, I'm having my Mother In Law pick up a specialty paint to when she travels from WA next week! Stay tuned for pictures!
