It used to be that I could paint anything white and it would fit my décor. My sister used to make fun of me for my tiny obsession. I’m reminded of the Portlandia skit, “We put birds on things”. I’d find an old picture frame that didn’t quite fit in my room, so I’d paint it white. A cool vintage statue of an owl, paint it white! Now I’m obsessed with gold. I love the level of sophistication it can add to any setting, but paired with the right color, only using a hint of it, can still be playful and fun.
enjoy. with love, Catherine (local social)

Adding metallic gold into your reception theme is an instant glamour move. For one, it pretty much blends with any color scheme. Two, it’s super easy to do with the right materials. Use spray paint on thrift store finds or a special spray for food from Deli Garage for a fun name card or table setting. — Brittany

Happy New Year Brooklyn Bride fans! Here we are with a glamorous table for you to see. Okay, Okay – I know this has frilly pink flowers (but at least no poofy dress!). Forgive me, I just can’t resist peonies. We kept it simple with low clusters of blooms and twinkly gold votive candles. A cheap store bought house number from Home Depot was easily gold leafed for a snazzy table number. Sprinkle some sequins, throw down tulle and ribbons for a runner and you are done. Cheers! – Denise
