B I N G O !

For the new issue of Utterly Engaged, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to go antique shopping with Editor Eva Chou and photographer Serena Grace. With no more than a little money in our pocket, we took on the challenge of finding vintage items to create a tablescape and event concept…in just a few hours. The task seemed at first a little daunting, but proved incredibly rewarding. First off check out the article, with all the fun photos of our shopping trip and results. Here are a few peeks:

Can we talk about how awkward it is to set your hiney down on a setee in the middle of a store and start posing for pictures? Dear heavens. I was bright red when I left the store.

Next up, here are a few extra photos I put together of our little bingo themed party…which, by the way, I’m putting on my calendar immediately! Love the rootbeer floats and vintage tea tins (which i would have filled with something fun like succulents…were I to have more than an hour to create our “event”!)

Be sure to check out Utterly Engaged for the rest of the article and TONS of other great features in this month’s issue.

  9. Summer, I have literally spent the last three months trying to track down that picture of the photo wall. I right-click saved it without crediting the image and it’s haunted me. We’re trying to recreate that photo wall in our living room. Was this just done for prop styling or is this actually someone’s living space? I would love to see more pictures or talk to the genius behind the frames. We’ve had such a time getting this look as all the frames we order say they are X size but are really larger or smaller than they are advertised. Any insight you have would be SO appreciated!

    Hi Niki! Haha. That’s awesome! Well, the wall was actually part of the owner’s personal collection. We used their house and were lucky enough to have such a great wall already in place for our background. That’s interesting you are having so much trouble with the size of your frames. A 5×7 should be a 5×7. I suppose sometimes the outside of the frame itself might come in a variety of sizes. I do know that the owner of the wall usually gathers his favorite frames, and puts them all on the ground, and sort of puts them together like a puzzle piece before actually nailing into his wall. It shouldn’t matter too much about the specific sizes of your frames, but rather about the end result once you put your whole collection together. Does that make sense?
