Northern Decor Featured on Bridal Guide

We are thrilled to share that we are listed on Bridal Guide’s list of 25 Creative Ideas For Your Wedding Bar!   

“Let’s face it — once your reception gets up and running, your watering hold (aka your bar) is the number one spot your guests will gravitate toward, so you better make sure it not only looks good but is serving refreshments that are up to par. From self-serve stations and stunning set-ups to signature drinks and personalized touches, these fun bar ideas will leave your guests thirsty for more.” – via Hilary Hoffower, Bridal Guide

The Bellaire | Northern Caravan Company

With events being placed on hold, the chance to do what we love at any level is far and few in between. When the opportunity presented itself for us to collaborate with Life in Bloom and donate to Black Lives Matter, we were all in! 

Last week, Life in Bloom sold fresh flowers, topiaries, and pre-made arrangements out of our newest caravan, The Bellaire! Completely transformed from what was a horse trailer, The Bellaire boasts an incredible design. We put thought in every single detail. From the gorgeous sparkling backsplash to the lighting fixtures, to the wood floors, and spacious shelving for whatever your needs may be. We even included taps, wine fridges, and beer tubs.

All proceeds were donated to Black Lives Matter. It was a heartwarming feeling doing what we loved while doing something incredibly positive for the community.

Are you a florist, baker, anyone who is looking for a fun and unique way to promote and sell your products? Our caravan is a quirky and eye-catching way to do so. Get in touch with us today! 

Balancing in Heels Book Launch

Kristin Cavallari launched her book, Balancing in Heels, at Luxury Garage Sale in Chicago and to say this event was a blast would be an understatement! 

Working alongside Christine Janda was an honor. Her event planning and floral design was a hit and our custom built furnishings and furniture made everything cohesive and flow beautifully. The dangling floral wall backdrop was a success for all of the photo opps! 

The evening was full of camera flashes and bright smiles as fans came from near and far to get an autographed book from Kristin! We loved being a part of this spectacular evening and the success of Balancing in Heels has been extraordinary! Congratulations, Kristin!

Dreamy Theater On the Lake Wedding

Carla and Porter said I do under a beautiful custom-built altar with the Chicago skyline in the background. The historic Theater on the Lake was the perfect venue for these two love birds and we loved working alongside the entire creative team on this special day!

We had the pleasure of creating custom-built furnishings, decor, lighting, and florals for Carla and Porter which helped ensure a common look and theme that would carry over from the ceremony to the reception. The altar was simple yet distinguished with breathtaking views of Lake Michigan and the iconic Chicago skyline as the two sealed their forever love with a kiss in front of friends and family. 

The reception space set the mood for the evening with the perfect mixture of industrial details combined with elegant decor. Guests were seated throughout the room at dark wood tables paired with metal cafe chairs. Modern lanterns and Edison bulbs were hung over each tabletop, illuminating all the details of the elegant tablescape. Lush white floral centerpieces and the glow of candlelight danced around the room and completed the look Carla and Porter were hoping for. 

The evening was full of dancing and laughter in honor of the couple. As husband and wife, the newlyweds cut their cake and tasted its sweetness together! Toasts were given throughout the night with applause and cheers for the newly pronounced Mr and Mrs. 

Congratulations to Carla and Porter, we are so thankful we were able to be a part of your special day!
