We all know how hard it is to find the perfect wedding, event or dinner party venue, so when The Venue Report discovered Apartment A, a brand new gem in Los Angeles’ fastest growing hotspot, the Arts District, they knew they wanted to host a giveaway for a lucky winner to be able to experience an event there. The contest was an ode to the dinner party and the theme, “Go Buck Wild”, was conceived so the winners would enjoy a fun, carefree meal – crafted by Contemporary Catering – together. We absolutely love all of the creative, bohemian details scattered throughout the tablescape and setting + thought the design would provide you with the perfect inspiration for your wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, or just about any party or event! Let’s hear more about the gorgeously designed environment (captured to perfection by Braedon Flynn) from Cortnie of The Venue Report:
The dinner party contest was all about gathering at a well designed table, with close family and friends, to feast on incredible food and drink handcrafted cocktails without having to lift a finger. “Go Buck Wild” and enjoy!
We wanted to bring in the bohemian feel of an Indian Summer breezy boho vibe and the addition of the Wild West for some masculine touches. Tool belt holsters were used them as utensil holders. Cruelty-free porcupine quills filled inkwell vases and tumbleweeds were turned into chandeliers that hovered over the table. Beautiful sticks were turned into drink stirrers accented by patina desert animals like armadillos and fireflys. Vintage ivory and gold rimmed dinnerware, along with gold flatware was provided by Borrowed Blu.
Jen from Printed Palette Ink set the tone with boxed invitations in the palette of a desert sunrise and sunset that were hand watercolored…
We’re not sure the giveaway winners could have been any cuter!
Carissa from JL Designs did stunning floral arrangements that were low, lush and filled with driftwood, branches, succulents, and ivory flowers. She placed fools gold at each setting for a glittering accent reminiscent of the Wild West.
Of course, we just had to pull together a roundup of our fave bohemian tablescape details that fit with the “Go Buck Wild” dinner party theme:
Looks like such a fun night, right? If you don’t keep up with The Venue Report, we definitely suggest that you do – especially if you are researching wedding venues! Big thanks to Cortnie and the super talented team of creatives below for sharing this fun dinner party with us!
