The Look- Graceful beauty with a careful balance of vintage, homespun and re-purposed items in a barn like setting creating a look that feels natural, casual yet refined.

The Design- Imperfect layers of feminine fabrics, soft hues and distressed finishes merged with the formal feel of vintage coupled with a homespun touch. Large floral arrangements in bottles and jugs will provide the homey feel you’re looking for.

The Color Palette- delightful pastels of soft pinks, robin egg blue and classic vintage whites and wood tones for accents.

It is virtually impossible to create a shabby chic feel without layers and layers of textures, trims and florals. Personal touches of ruffles added to your invitations, layers of fabrics wrapped around your vases, jugs and bottles, table setting filled with different layers and textures from the table clothes and chair covers to the place settings. You can add bows and lace everywhere, burlap bags, twine will all add to your shabby chic charm. Ideas for those small details, flower girl wand made of fabric flowers and ribbon. Bride and Groom paper and burlap banner, decorated paper bag favors with ribbons, lace and you can add buttons for additional charm.

There are so many items you can use as props for this theme, old vintage type writers, flower boxes, paper and fabric flowers, wood signs, buttons, distressed suit cases, vintage cake plates and vases and the list goes on and on.
