4th of July Party Inspiration

Happy, happy 4th , m’dears! By now you’re probably prepping for a day of sparklers and grillouts, but if you’re in need of a little last-minute Americana inspiration we’ve got just the ticket. Thanks to Jennifer Gee and Sarah Del Buono we’re diving into red, white and blue party ideas you can pull off in a cinch. So what are you waiting for? Get started right here.

From Jennifer Gee… Who doesn’t have a party to throw or attend on Independence Day? With the nation’s birthday steadily approaching, it only seemed fitting to style an editorial shoot with my favorite photographer, Sarah Del Buono of Made In March.

Unlike many other 4th of July parties, I wanted this styled shoot to remain chic with touches of vintage and natural elements. The setting sun provided the perfect stage for our session as it gave us great natural light to highlight this table scape. The mood was heightened with unique vintage plates that my Mother found while perusing a local antique shop here in Jamestown. Sea grass and touches of bamboo added some natural elements while giving a nice contrast to the trendy, oversized mercury mason jars.

The drink station came together beautifully draped in printed linen table cloths, as decorative summer elements such as lanterns, sea glass and buoys anchored and adorned the table. To add some extra flare (and keep the kid’s busy throughout the day!) we added a suitcase full of goodies that really helped enhance the look. Finally, what better way to celebrate our patriotism than with gold spray painted sparklers? The perfect finishing touch!

From Colby BlanchetIt started with the plan to build 17 customized farm tables because they were unavailable from rental houses in Rhode Island.

Rochelle and Jeremy have been dating for 7 years. They had 150 people guest list with friends from around the world, Jeremy’s from London & Scotland, and native Rhode Islanders on Rochelle’s side.

The wedding began in a small church, in a small rustic beach town of Little Compton. A favorite summer spot that Rochelle and her family would go to. Rochelle showed JJ Little Compton when they first started dating and he fell in love with it. The reception was held at the Stone House, an intimate venue with a large tent dimly lit overlooking the beautiful blue ocean.

Rochelle, being a native Rhode Islander, wanted to incorporate a lot of RI traditions, from the coffee milk favors to the clambake and chowder appetizers. Rochelle & Jeremy consider themselves foodies so when it came to picking the menu they knew they wanted local organic farm to table!

With Jeremy growing up in England it was important for them to incorporate some of the English traditions. The guests were encouraged to wear fascinaters and beautiful hats. The men were encouraged to wear bow ties and there summer best. English tea sandwiches were served at cocktail hour and english tea in vintage tea cups were served at desert!

Rochelle, her family, and her maid of honor Holly had so much fun being creative and doing a lot of DIY projects, The wedding was very much about bring the whole family together through out the wedding process.

The lace runners were made from beautiful French lace Rochelle’s mother has been given from a friend. The gold wooden flower boxes were made by Rochelle’s father, along with the gorgeous farm tables. All of the fun chalkboard signs were designed by a family friend Chris and are hanging in Rochelle & Jeremy’s house. Rochelle & her mother made all of the place cards and stuck them in vintage forks.

This wedding had a lot of love that went into it and Rochelle & Jeremy both knew they wanted a unforgetable party!

From Details With LoveOn Wednesday, March 7th, a messenger arrived to Lisa’s office with an enormous bouquet of roses and a note that instructed her to go downstairs. Waiting was a car with her dog, Theodore Pickles inside. Theo was wearing a little doggy hoody, and inside the pocket was another note that said Rich couldn’t wait to see her. The car drove them to Union Park, a beautiful, private park near their home in London. She approached to see Rich waiting in the center of the park, down on one knee and holding a ring. She said YES!!!

When I received the call from the London couple for assistance in planning their designation wedding, I couldn’t wait to get to know them better and get started in planning and styling all of the lovely details of their signature coastal chic celebration…and of course for their arrival, to meet them in person and for them to experience and enjoy all that my hometown of Newport has to offer. A very special congratulations to Mr & Mrs! xo
