Holiday Tablescaping + Williams-Sonoma

Gotta say... it was really cool that Williams-Sonoma wanted us in their shop to pair some 1209 designs with their store's holiday collections. We were thrilled to come up with some fresh tablescape ideas for their shoppers while still staying true to our style. Williams-Sonoma always carries such great pieces for the kitchen and dining-room, so it was a small challenge figuring out what we wanted to use. But once we did, it all came together just how we pictured!

Creating intimate settings for our clients is something that we truly love (and appreciate) doing. The dinner table is a special place. It's where stories are shared, where good food is enjoyed and where memories are made. Growing up, quality time around the dinner table with friends and family was something our families valued, which is why I think it's something we still value today. 


The Stewart Tartan Table:

Sherry and I celebrate Christmas, so we wanted to create a festive table using traditional holiday colors. Christmas only comes once a year, so we like to make the most of it! We chose to use items from Williams-Sonoma's Stewart Tartan Collection. To add some contrast to the design we used the white plaid table linens and paired with the red plaid dinner plates.  Our awesome friend Lauren from Lately Press made name-tags that went perfectly with our set-up! You will also see that there are two large pieces of driftwood on the table we picked up in Sedona (sometimes we like to forage for things) that we wrapped tiny lights around to give an element of twinkle! You can find these inexpensive lights at Marshall's or Tuesday Morning, but we have seen them at several other stores too. We used magnolia leaves, red ranunculus, white wax flowers and mums, but then also added a touch of burgundy with the dahlias. Because there is a lot going on, we felt that the glassware needed to have a simple design, so the Estate Collection was the way to go. This is definitely a table we could cozy up to!

Items used for this tablescape: Stewart Tartan tablecloth, Stewart Tartan napkins, Pearled plate set, Tartan dinner plates, Estate cabernet wine glasses, Estate sauvignon blanc wine glasses, WSOK gold rim glasses, Lucca silverware set


The NYE Contempo Table:

This table setting is a more modern + elegant design that's fitting for a New Years Eve dinner. After all of the red, green, and plaid we decided we needed a sleek and stylish look using a non-traditional color palette for this design. For our arrangements, we opted to use purple eucalyptus instead of greens, and then put in a pop of fuchsia with the dahlias. The arrangements are sitting in white mid-century modern inspired vases. You can find some great vase options out there instead of settling for the same old clear vases. World Market, Marshall's and West Elm have some great options depending on your price point. Next, we added a little sparkle and shine by using the silver and white Pine Cone Collection for the table runner and napkins. We wanted to keep the flatware simple since we had our eyes on the stunning Dorset Crystal Collection for the glassware. We added a few of Lauren's watercolor name-tags, along with our silver votives to finish off the look. Now we're ready to ring in the New Year!

Happy 1 Year Anniversary!

We can't believe a full 365 days have passed since we first launched 1209 creative. Bananas!! We're seriously loving every second of it. Sherry and I are gearing up for our fall weddings after having a successful first summer season! Keep an eye out for some cool stuff we have coming up. We're going to go have ourselves a celebratory cocktail (or three). Thanks to all for the love and high-fives! And again, congrats to our summertime newlyweds!

XOXO.

Easter Blooms

Surrounded by flowers and loved ones for the past 48 hours... pretty awesome. We had several Easter parties in need of flowers, so we hit the ground running super early Saturday morning (heavily caffeinated). First thing first, we went to pick out a variety of beautiful flowers that screamed "Hellloooooo Spring!" With so many flowers to choose from, Sherry and I turn into a couple of giddy girls... it's like going shopping for new shoes. We freak out and have to touch everything.

3 hours later: This is the part where we poured ourselves a glass of wine and ordered a pizza. Nic stopped over to snap some gorgeous photos (Thank you, Nic!), and we took a little time to admire the work we accomplished so far. We can't say enough how rewarding it is to create these custom arrangements for people to enjoy. It truly makes us smile.

A Garden Party

What can I say... Sherry and Azure whipped together a truly adorable and special baby shower for Angie and Regan to celebrate their soon-to-be baby boy. Since it's March and insanely beautiful in Phoenix this time of year, the party was hosted on the patio of Ollie Vaughn's. Lindsey really outdid herself with the delicious food from her shop, and the presentation was so lovely.

Of course we had to have an amazing beverage station filled with homemade sangria (ummm, so yummy!), champagne and fresh fruit... not to mention the ice cubes filled with flowers to compliment the dozens of arrangements placed all around the patio. Seriously, flowers in every nook and cranny... can we just have Garden Parties everyday?! We we're lovin' it!

Dessert was provided by A Bake Shop, who made the most charming donuts and macaroons that were wayyyyy too pretty to eat (but we totally ate every last, delicious bite)! The mommies-to-be had a wonderful time with all of their friends and family who attended, and we couldn't be happier for them. It was a beautiful day in so many ways.
