We we’re inspired to run with this concept after we visited Jen Huang‘s new studio and spotted her gorgeous dining table (made from reclaimed wood) and vintage, French, schoolhouse chairs. When the amazing team over at Mélangerie offered to design the seating cards, menu, and table name for our shoot we knew it was the perfect project to collaborate on. They really took the tablescape to the next level with their adorable details!
We tracked down a couple of vintage crayon tins on an antiquing trip and paired them with vintage glass bottles. In keeping with the schoolhouse theme we placed old books down the length of the table and chose bright, playful flowers for our arrangements. Our favorite pairing was the red gomphrena and chamomile with geranium leaves. They resembled strawberries and looked almost edible!
Mélangerie ran with the inspiration and came up with the idea of using chalkboards. Both the menu and table name are hand-lettered onto antique chalkboards. The place cards are pieces of book board they painted with chalk board paint and then hand lettered. To complete the setting, they tied a piece of chalk to each place card with apple red ribbon to match Jen’s chairs. Parfait!!

If you’ve got out of town guests, you’ll probably want to give them some goodies for the hotel room, but why not make the bag something they’ll want to keep too?
