I adore rehearsal dinners! Loved ones coming into town, all the excitement and anticipation, and the chance to style an experience that's more intimate and relaxed. If the husband and I were doing it all again tomorrow, I'd throw a cocktail party under the stars (and the string lights!) that looked just like this...
I'm going for modern, bold yet restrained, a little bit natural and a little bit glam... eclectic while still keepin' it chic. And the Deco touches give a nod to all the current Gatsby fever without beating you over the head with it. I'd set the stage with vintagey lounge areas, high tables and stools, and serve up champagne, classic cocktails and elegant bites with a relaxed style; a sprinkle of bold patterned pieces and glimmering gold will bring it all together. Cheers!
