Just wanted to begin to share some of my favorite discoveries from The Special Event I attended in January in San Diego.

The Trade Show Floor is one of my favorite parts of the conference to view up close all the new trends and amazing ideas in the event world. 

Of course, I am always attracted to the beautiful table tops, floral and linen displays and especially the amazing furniture that is available to rent for events. 

Love the table tops montage provided above by a favorite "inspiring" blogger,Lara McCullough, "Ready 2 Spark" that I read religiously and who takes a much better shot than I did of these mutual favorites.

Love the yellow and white for it's freshness and prettiness and the black and yellow for it's fabulous drama! And who is to say that you can't do drama at your wedding?

The black & white and green table is so striking as anything with black and white is with the green, and the look carried through in the chair pads and the tailored overlay. 

Finally, the picture below of the table, and the chairs and those acrylic candelabras that I WANT!  Actually, I wanted to take home the entire booth of furniture from Fete Accompli Events.  Their line of furniture rentals ranges from very ornate & palatial to modern and sleek.

If you really want to make a STATEMENT at your wedding, this is the furniture that definitely would do it for you and in smaller focused areas, it would certainly take the style quotient up major notches. 

And don't think that these pieces are completely out of reach for you. Again, because they are so striking and bold, a few pieces or at most, a lounge area is a reasonable investment and not necessarily too over the top.

Of course, if you want to go over the top with custom rentals this is some of the best product to go there and Vegas certainly is a place to bring it to that level. Your creative event team of rental specialists, wedding consultant and designer would certainly assist you in finding just the right combination of decor elements; furniture, linen, lighting, etc. to bring your style to an sophisticated overall look that will have them saying "Wow"!

Do check out the websites of the amazing linen providers and the furniture to give you product descriptions and to see stylish events where they added to the overall look of the event.
