InStyle Weddings Event Prep

Remember those exciting things I mentioned yesterday?  Well here’s a little peek at some of the decor prep I’ve done for our InStyle Weddings event!

We started with some awesome white branches.  Beautiful, but not quite as opulent as we would want so naturally….

WE GILDED THEM!  Just a quick coat of metallic gold spray paint, which I will now refer to as “chic in a can,” and you’re event ready!

The lamp shades got gilded as well, and with the addition of a few paper pom poms (made with the help of Maureen’s tutorial)…

Viola!  Even though I’m not 100% done yet, I LOVE it!! A few more pom poms and some extra pink chevrons on the vase and we’ll be good to go.  I’ll update you later today with some pictures from the event.

Let us know what you think, we love to hear from you!  🙂 Rachel

About Maureen

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.

  10. curious what brand of gold spray paint you used. i’ve tried a few brands that didn’t really look very metallic, the cap was very deceiving. yours looks nice.

  14. I love LOVE the effect gold spray paint has on things. For our wedding last April, the hubster and I “gilded” a bunch of hockey pucks for our table numbers. (He plays…I like gold things 🙂 It looked amazing!
