We like to think everything we do should be done with style, especially those not so beautiful tasks. So when it comes to camping you know we would go BIG. We recently designed a vignette for a fundraising event in Philadelphia called A Date with a Plate and we used Glamping (glamorous camping) as our inspiration.

With a brand new Raj tent that arrived into Philadelphia the night before the event (this industry always keeps us on our toes) as the canopy, our Creative Director, Jessica Mader created the most glamorous ‘camping’ experiences. We used mixed china from Bloomingdales that was set upon a live edge wood table and Jess created a few smaller vignettes within the tent with some amazing vintage furniture.

Trend Alert: Glamping
  • by Melissa Brannon

Tis the season to head outdoors, especially when planning an event or wedding! Luckily, for those of you who like to choose the path less traveled, non-traditional options are gaining popularity and more and more events are embracing the outdoors with “Glamping”!

“Glamping” or glamorous camping is the term used for the latest outdoorsy spin on camping and so many event planners and brides are jumping on the bandwagon. Glamping is not only for the outdoorsy type! Actor Matthew McConaughey tied the knot a few years back on his Texas ranch with a glamping style celebration!

This super trendy option allows guests to experience the pleasures of camping with the conveniences of a five star hotel. Your guests can relax and enjoy themselves in comfort, while experiencing all of the beauty of their natural surroundings.Outdoor Wedding Seating

Glamping usually requires guests to commit to a longer stay and allows for a multi-day celebration. We love the idea of spending more time together and extending your special day!

Companies like Outdoorsgeek will provide set-up and break down of each event. They also provide beds, fresh linens, and a dresser for clothes. These glamping spaces are created for temporary living with showers and bathrooms. Guests can choose to cook inside in case of bad weather! Tent service under the stars anyone?

Take a peek at one of the most amazing ‘glamping’ style events that we planned for a 70th Birthday celebration in Sedona, Arizona.
