Set It In Style

.
I recently received an email from the PR team behind Rosanna, Inc. with a link to this new "Woodland Cameo" collection. It was love at first sight. My head is spinning with how you could incorporate this into a very chic take on the Woodland party theme craze.
.

.
Picture everything in black and white with pops of green grass or moss table runners.
.

.
Spray paint branches white or black or go for these sequin black branches for a hint of glam. For an extra touch, add green florals to them like the one featured from Bella Design Studio. This large tree and bird cylinder vase would make a stunning centerpiece for your buffet, as would this snowy owl perched atop an elevated cake stand or pedestal.
.
Use a bold and graphic curtain or fabric for an eye-popping backdrop to a feature table. Fabric panels and shower curtains are great items to use for inspiration.
.
Mark your guests places with these etched butterfly placecards atop their wine glasses.
.

.
As shown in the Rosanna photo, take simple faux creatures and paint them black or white. Do the same with ornate picture frames of various sizes. Tip: look at Goodwill or Dollar stores for inexpensive figurines or frames that just need a good coat of spray paint at home to turn from trash to treasure.

Also, don't forget to hit the Halloween aisle for lots of blackbird decor!

P.S. Designer dishware not in your budget? If you're in St. Louis, you're in luck. Don't forget that Kim at Head of The Table has amazing dishes for rent at a great price for all of your upcoming celebrations!

I loved those dishes the first time I saw them. These are some great ideas on how to actually incorporate them into a real party. Thanks for the inspiration!

The company is based here in Seattle, I actually stood outside of her warehouse wondering why I couldn't get in. Apparently it's not a storefront.

Regardless, we love her products!
