Tuesday Trend: Eclectic Themes

The eclectic theme has become a huge trend this year and like many, we’re in love! The key in creating this ultra-chic look is to mix and match opposite elements. There are MANY ways to achieve this style, and Mahaffey is here to help!

At your next event, try mixing a modern, upscale location with shabby-chic decorations, or vice versa, for an easy way in achieving this look. Another approach is to only focus on the decorative pieces. Here are some ideas that we love: adding chandeliers to a barn-like venue, pairing vintage tableware to patterned linens, and combining shaded and non-shaded glassware. Tying these pieces to one another will create the perfect eclectic atmosphere!

Want to create this trend for your next event? Mahaffey Tent & Party Rentals has a variety of items ranging from lighting, flatware, linens, tables and more to help create the ultimate eclectic theme! Stop by our showroom or schedule an appointment with one of our event specialists today at 901.457.4538!

Did You Know Series: Fashion-Inspired Tabletops

When designer collections and party planning collide, the result is pure genius! At Mahaffey, we have to admit that we’ve fallen in love with the trend of fashion-inspired tabletops. With the announcement of Spring 2013 fashion colors, we can’t help but begin brainstorming all the ideas for next year’s table designs.

We took the colors from this fall/winter 2012-2013 Bottega Veneta runway look and created our own tablescape.
