Style Series: Please be SEAted

We’ve all been there – scrolling through Instagram, and seeing the most amazing event setup, and wonder, where did they find all of that? And how do I get my hands on it?

We’ve found high-quality dupes of products from your favorite stores, and ours alike. These series of posts are not sponsored. We are simply sharing the wealth so that you can become the hostess with the mostest. Or just come off as an interior design guru. Totally up to you.

For us, 90% of the time we rent them from our amazing furniture, decor, and floral vendors. The good news is, your guide is here to bring all things event amazingness into your own home.

We know you’ve seen our newsworthy event for bareMinerals held at Studio 525 in New York City, so now we’re breaking it down on how to customize your own version at home.


For our event, we selected teal blue chargers topped with rippling iridescent glass salad plates resembling seashells to reflect the seascape projected onto the wall in the dining room. Layering these textured Glass Dinner Plate with a Sea Blue Glass Dessert Plate from Bed Bath & Beyond from and adding Modern Wine Glass from CB2 will give your tablescape the same calming effect.


We chose simple white chairs and stone-colored tables as a backdrop for our tabletop design, to maintain a focal-point on the tablescape florals, and place settings.  It may be an aggressive move to purchase new furniture for your event, but we won’t judge you for it. Check out this White Stackable Side Chair from Hayneedle and the Wood Dining Table from Wayfair.


Our floral arrangements included white freesias, blush and white peonies and sprigs of eucalyptus, adding a fresh, clean scent to the space. The bud vases were displayed not only among the tabletop decor but throughout the entire venue. Add some to your bathroom, entryway, wherever the guests may linger for a pop of freshness. DIY by ordering this Glass Bud Vase Set from Wayfair and The Minimalist floral bouquet from Farmgirl Flowers.


Here are some additional pointers to elevate your design:

  1. Have a lot to say? Throwing a label on the glass bud vases was a quick fix for us.
  2. Utilizing upholstered chairs will add coziness to your dinner soirée in this otherwise cool-toned palette.
  3. We added a level of sustainability with seed paper place cards.
  4. Check-in with your local florist to ensure your preferred florals are in season.
