We just found out about this company, Chareau. They distill their own aloe liqueur and have the most beautiful cocktail recipes on their site. They're a California based brand, located in Camarillo, with a family connection to farming. The name of the liqueur is actually a combination of the owners grandparents names, which we think is so lovely and thoughtful! We're sharing some of their recipes below!

When you think about your special day, what do you envision? For most people the first things that come to mind are the perfect venue, the stunner dress, and what your table tops will look like. With festival season upon us, we played with a boho look that fit our modern, industrial building.

To make sure we got it right, we consulted an expert. Alexandra Swanson is a creative Director for Archive Rentals, and she gave us some tips to help us create the boho table we want to dine at for the rest of our days!

 

-First and foremost, narrow down how you envision your personal “boho” aesthetic!  Do you like more modern/geometric and clean lines tied in, or jive toward an eclectic/colorful mix of patterns and textures? 

-In the case of this specific tabletop, we tied in a touch of modern, through mixed metals of copper and rose gold, alongside mercury votives, but then used an ethereal table runner and turkish towels to tone down the geometric lines and hard metals.

-Utilizing a variety of textures is huge when it comes to bringing together a boho look!  For example we used our smooth stoneware plates, with raw laser cut chargers, then slim elongated flatware and geometric metal elements in the centerpiece area, paired with soft linens!

You don’t have to head to the desert to create a festival vibe for your wedding. Show your guests your bohemian spirit with these big impact pieces and presentations.

 

Tap Into 70's Hippie Chic

The backdrop for your ceremony can make all the difference in setting the tone for your day. This gorgeous piece from our friends at Archive Rentals features the warmth of the wool texture, subtle rose tones, and sweeping fringe and is a great example of how to make our industrial space feel a little more free-spirited.

Create A Casual Mood Through Food

Festival food should be fun, crowd pleasing, and easy to eat on the go. The cheese and mezze spread that Fundamental LA did here is bright, bold, and eye-catching. This table can be spotted from a mile away!

Let Them Chill

You want your guests to be comfortable, and your guests want to be at an event worthy of some seriously good Insta photos. Bringing in the right furniture to lounge in is the way to go. This lounge, that is rentable from us in-house, combines truly vintage pieces with some modern touches like fur and a small, elegant bud vase.
