We love a summer party and we know you do too! So grab your friends, some good food and drinks, some fun decor, and ring out the end of the summer!

Venue Spotlight: Chatham Station

Author: Chelsea Head

The Summer of 2018 has been a crazy one for us here at Greenhouse Picker Sisters. We have had weekends full of weddings, open houses, corporate events, and the best event was the arrival of our new inventory. On an early Friday morning in the beginning of July, a large transfer truck pulled up to our warehouse and delivered all of our new inventory. We were beyond excited! We now have a full set (200 to be exact!) of ceremony Bentwood bistro chairs , Bentwood barstools, upholstered Allie chairsGold Alexandra Bar Backs, White Farm Tables, and 5 sets of linen and industrial lounges!

With all of our new inventory coming in, we needed to find a way to showcase it to the community. Well lucky for us, a brand new venue called Chatham Station in downtown Cary, was preparing for their first open house and we were asked to participate. We obviously said yes because they're venue is beautiful! We brought all of our new inventory and set it up to showcase the furniture and the amazing space.

Galas Just Want to Have Fun….In the Summer

Rectangle Bar

Over at Greenhouse Picker Sisters Marketplace, we can find plenty of reasons to throw a party! We love to gather with friends, family, and coworkers to enjoy one another’s company, good food, good drinks, and great music.  Last October we had our first gala at our new space and it was an absolute blast! After many sleepless nights and moving all of our inventory to our new warehouse, we put the finishing touches on everything and threw an amazing party for all of our friends, family, and vendor friends.

Our retail shop in the marketplace!

Here our Hanging Table is a perfect option for a dessert display! We now have one in white as well! White Hanging Table. Some of the best desserts we have ever had were provided by Stick Boy Bread Company! We gathered at the Marketplace and had such a blast! We had food from food truck The Wandering Moose.  They served some of the best bacon mac and cheese, brisket grilled cheese sandwiches, crab cakes, pulled pork lettuce wraps, and the list goes on! 

 

Specialties Florals and Events provided the most beautiful flowers for our tables and warehouse. Here is some of her work in front of our White Door Backdrop.

Guests were able to walk through our warehouse and see all our inventory lined up and ready to go! Audrey LoveseatBlanche Chairs (all pictured below.)

After reminiscing on such a fun event, we began to question if it was time for another gala.  We gathered as a team and decided that our next gala will be the in the Summer of 2018! We are beyond excited to have everyone out to our marketplace to enjoy the good company and to see all of our inventory. And what is even more exciting, is that at our Summer Gala, you will be able to see our BRAND NEW INVENTORY in person! We are so pumped for our Summer Gala/Open House and we cannot wait to see you there! (Details will be announced soon….so make sure you are following along on Instagram!)

Family First

 

“Family: Where Life Begins and Love Never Ends.”

Photo: A.J. Dunlap

From the moment I walked in for my interview at Greenhouse Picker Sisters, I knew that there was something different about them. You always go into an interview nervous and worried about the outcome, but from the time I was introduced to Amanda and Holly, I immediately was at peace. If you’ve ever met the sisters behind the name of the business, you can attest that they are full of life, joy, and you already feel like you’ve been best friends with them for years. This ability to treat every stranger like family is a true gift. This is what Greenhouse Picker Sisters is all about. Aside from the furniture, the rentals, and the events, this business is about love and family.

This business has always been, and always will be, about family, first and foremost. The great part about joining this team is that you are accepted into this family with love and open arms. Holly and Amanda have shown what it is like to work for a company that truly cares about you and your well-being. Sometimes it is a crazy, chaotic family but there is always love.

Here at Greenhouse we all know each other’s families and we are all connected by this crazy business. We are there for each other’s big moments, the times of joy, and in times of pain and sadness. We can always reach out to one another in times of doubt, and help lift each other up.

If you are ever need of encouragement, send us a message, stop by our warehouse for a cup of coffee and a listening ear. We love our team, this community, and this business. Let us show you the same love and encouragement that we show each other. In 1 Thessalonians 5:11, God said, “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

Ceremony Backdrops

When deciding on a venue, one of the things you think about is where you are going to have your ceremony. You have to find the perfect space with the best lighting, the most beneficial seating area, and you have to decide what you are going to stand in front of. Couples use their ceremony backdrop as a way to express their personalities or love story. Backdrops come in all forms, such as, custom canvases, arbors, and cool architectural pieces.

We love when couples choose really unique backdrops, and especially when they are customizable with awesome vendors such as Danielle of Mason Dixon Designs. Danielle created an AMAZING custom canvas with a quote that planner Lauren of The Lion House loved.

Arbors will always be a staple in ceremony backdrop and we love the different ways they can be decorated. Our White Wooden Arbor , Thin TrussCircle Arbor, and Copper Arbor will never go out of style.

Our Rustic Mantle is the perfect way to add a touch of coziness to any ceremony, especially during the winter season.

Another interesting ceremony backdrop is White Door Backdrop. This can be used behind the couple or at the beginning of the aisle for an element of surprise as the bride walks down the aisle.

Our newest ceremony backdrop is for a more adventurous or modern couple. Our Geometric Backdrop is a unique backdrop to say your “I Do’s.” We love being able to create new and interesting backdrops for our couples to exchange vows! So let your imagination run wild and let us build you a personal and perfect backdrop for your wedding! The sky is the limit!

“The fondest memories made are when gathered around the table.”

Tables are one of the most important pieces of a wedding. Tables can be used for dinner receptions, for desserts, for gifts, and just about any other idea you may have. When guests and loved ones gather around a table, memories are made. With all of the different ideas for table uses, of course there are many types of table styles. There are farm tables, round tables, large tables, small tables, modern tables, vintage tables, and the list goes on! There are tables for just about everyone’s personal style!

With all of the tables we have in our inventory, we have tables for everyone’s needs! Our original table, the David Farm Tables, is a fan favorite! We have used these tables countless times and for so many cool events.

 A really sweet option for a couple who wants to spend those special moments together at their wedding, is to choose a special table just for them. Sweetheart tables are such a sweet way to distinguish your table from the others.  Our Small Whitewash TableIngrid Table, and Farm Table with Slim Legs are perfect options for a sweetheart table!

Our most fun table in our inventory is the Hanging Table! We love using this table at events for dessert displays, drink stations, gift tables, and more! Who doesn’t love a wow factor and this table certainly delivers! We even have a Hanging Cake Table and a brand new White Hanging Table!

Engagement Party: Jenna and Patrick

If you know us, you know that we love to get together with our friends and loved ones and share special moments together. We love to host parties and celebrate! With the opening of our new space, we were given the opportunity to host small parties and gatherings for our friends and our community.

Photo: A.J. Dunlap

So when the chance to throw a party for Jenna and Patrick, we jumped at the opportunity! Jenna is a great friend of ours (and happens to work with the great A.J. Dunlap) and we couldn’t wait to throw them an awesome engagement party.

We got together with some amazing vendors to throw this starry-night, constellation theme engagement party. Specialties Floral and Events did some great florals for our tables and new geometric backdrop, Mason Dixon Designs made us beautiful menus and place cards, A.J. Dunlap took pictures, The Cupcake Shoppe provided the beautiful cake, and our very own Pam Denney cooked and served the best food!

This backdrop by Danielle from Mason Dixon Designs was the perfect backdrop for this small lounge with our Kate Chairs. Danielle’s menu’s and place cards were the perfect fit for our theme! We used our Gold FlatwareColored Goblets, and our new black plates!

 

This cake! How gorgeous is this? The Cupcake Shoppe in Raleigh did an amazing job! We used our brand new Geometric Backdrop with our Ingrid Table.

We loved creating a moody and dark lounge for this evening. We got to use some of our newer pieces and it turned out beautifully! Bailey LoveseatOlivia ChairsPaxton Bench and Emily Loveseat.

Instead of gifts, all of Jenna and Patrick’s guests decided to gift them with house plants! How fun on our Geometric Backdrop! And how delicious does this food look?? It was so good!

 

We cannot wait to host more small events in our space this year! It is such a great chance for us to hang out with friends and to provide that space for you to gather as well! Shoot us an email if you would be interested in having an event at our space!
