Summer Garden Party at Atlanta Market

A Floral Fête at AmericasMart

The REstyleSOURCE team recently attended AmericasMart Atlanta for their 2015 International Gift & Home Furnishings Market, and while on the ground in Atlanta, they left a trail of stylishly designed spaces behind to excite and inspire! This space, put together by interior designer and REstyleSOURCE creative director Kristin Alber, is inspired by vibrant floral color–with a nod to iconic Portman White, the theme of this year’s festivities. Full of unique handmade touches that range from the large (the flower-decked wall backdrop) to the very tiny (handwritten calligraphy place cards and cocktail flags), this charming vignette should inspire many similar garden parties this season!

Designer Notes from Kristin

“The fabulous, large-scale floral wall was the inspiration behind the Garden Party idea! We carried the whimsical nature of the colors throughout the design, adding a black and white striped runner to ground the more feminine shades of coral, peach, lavender and citron.”

The white loveseat by LEE Industries stands in as our tribute to Portman White, the signature shade of this year’s events at AmericasMart. The gorgeous dishes and glassware seen adorning the distressed Classic Home table are from Skyros, accented by dainty pewter Provencal flatware from Vagabond House. We also took some of our favorite products–peony-inspired placemats and stylish black paper straws, both by Kitchen Papers–and gave them a creative twist. The placemats took on watercolor washes of our bright Garden Party shades of coral and citron, and the straws became handlettered “cocktail flags” with fun calligraphy messages. It’s little details like this that add charm and character to an event, creating a fun space in which to to entertain and host a summer garden party!

When it comes to event planning, it’s so important to remember the little things. It’s all in the details, and those special small touches that set your event or party apart. Something handmade, like darling little handlettered cocktail flags or watercolor-tinted placemats, will always be memorable and sweet. But even if you’re not handy with crafts, there are so many ways to craft special little party details your guests will remember. A great playlist helps set the stage, and of course, fresh flowers are wonderful. A freshly mixed cocktail made with artisanal ingredients, some good conversation, and easy but tasty dishes that let you spend more time enjoying your guests…these are all the makings of a fabulous party!
