At Classical Tents and Party Goods, we are always telling you about how we're always expanding our inventory. We love to spot upcoming trends, and try really hard to pay attention to what our customers' needs might be. We love scouting out new products, doing a little market research and testing, and eventually adding those items that have passed our tests into our rental line.
One of our favorite wedding venues in the Berkshires is Stonover Farm, in Lenox. We have done a multitude of events there, and are always so happy to get that call. Really, how can you go wrong with such a grand barn, just waiting to be adorned with fine linens, tables, chairs and so on?! So we've put together a little gallery of images from past weddings at the Farm where Classical Tents and Party Goods has provided the rentals.
From our tables to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas!
Every year, those of us who work in the events industry--specifically in the parts that have to do with design--wait with bated breath for Pantone to release their top color prediction for the following year. But this year, it was a bit different. Not only did we receive word that Pantone was crazy about ONE color, but it seems they couldn't decide between TWO!
We all know there's a season for everything...hurricane season, rainy season, wildfire season, duck season, deer season, holiday season...but ENGAGEMENT season?? Why, yes, yes there is!
Late last week, we showed you some images from our Fall styled shoot, hoping to give you some Thanksgiving table inspiration. Adding some fabulous throws to our vintage china, farm tables and cross back chairs gave our elegant, country dinner a warm, cozy vibe! And by using gorgeous floral centerpieces, along with some fun and feathery touches, our Ralph Lauren-inspired tablescape was complete.
Thanksgiving is one of our favorite times of the year. Our busy wedding season has slowed down and the holiday season actually give us a little bit of breathing time! And once you add in more time to spend with our families, it's no wonder why we love it so much!
If you're the one who's hosting the clan for turkey day, and you still haven't figured out what to do with your table, we have some ideas for you...and you may already have some of these things lying around your house!
This is why, at Classical Tents, we just KNEW we had to get some whiskey/wine barrels to add to our inventory. And boy, are we glad we did! Once we had our whiskey barrels sourced out (thank you Berkshire Mountain Distillers!), the ideas started rolling. We could offer whiskey barrel buffets, whiskey barrel bars, whiskey barrel side tables, whiskey barrel cocktail tables, whiskey barrel aisle markers...the possibilities are endless! And what a hit they've already been...used at some of our fall weddings in the Berkshires, and even at a fun "out in the field" farm dinner hosted by Heirloom Fire!
Winter in the Berkshires. We love it. We hate it. But whether we're ready or not, it's just around the corner! Lucky for us, that also means we're bound to see some beautiful winter weddings over the next few months! And I'll bet that at least one of those weddings will be designed according to one of the latest trends--Luxe Lodge! Now the summer version of this is called "Glamping," but for the sake of this blog post--and our upcoming cold weather months--we're going to tell you how to achieve this look! (And by the way, this isn't just for wedding decor, but also a wonderful way to transition your home for the season!)
We've all read the articles about "transforming an ugly venue." But being in the tent business, we've also come across couples who want to make the inside of their (ahem...already gorgeous!) tent look like some amazing chic new venue!
