Thanksgiving At The Greenhouse Picker Sisters Marketplace

Author: Chelsea Head

Earlier this November, our Greenhouse team gathered at the showroom to host our first annual Friendsgiving! We invited all of our families, made a side dish or dessert, and came together to enjoy a meal and each other's company. It was a great night celebrating our survival of the busy wedding season and getting to spend time with one another. We love hosting small parties and gatherings at our marketplace, so it was a blast that we got to host a party for ourselves!

I couldn't have made any of this happen without the help of some amazing people and vendors! First off, thank you to Pam Denney who cooked the turkey (the most important part of any Thanksgiving meal,) and who helped me pull all of this together! Danielle of Mason Dixon Designs contributed the most beautiful calligraphy on our place card gift boxes that were full of treats! Susan of Specialties Florals and Events always creates the most stunning centerpieces and this time was no different! And lastly, we wouldn't have these gorgeous images without Sam Floyd Photography!

If you would love to host a party at our space, please reach out to Holly at holly@greenhousepickersisters.com! We would love to chat with you and have you out to our space! Don't forget that we our hosting our Winter Open House and Market tomorrow night December 6th from 7PM-10PM. We would love to see you there!!

Are You Ready for the Holidays???

Author: Chelsea Head

It's that time of year again when the malls are packed and you have no idea what to buy all of those special people in your life. First, you have to buy for your family, then friends, and then your kid's teachers, your neighbors, and your co-workers. With so many gifts to buy everyone, you often run out of ideas of what to get people. I know I do! Well this year, you're in luck! We are offering a place for you to come out, sip on some yummy hot chocolate, and shop for some unique gifts for everyone! But besides the fun treats and shopping, you'll be able to come out, see our showroom all decked out for the holidays, and you get to hang out with us!

If this hasn't grabbed your attention yet and you still need some more convincing that you need to come out to this event, I'll introduce you to our vendors that will be in attendance!

First up is one of our favorite calligraphers, Mason Dixon Designs! She will have some fun holiday gifts, (that she will personalize for you on the spot!) such as, ornaments, gift tags, and more!

Next up, are the girls of The Poppy Shop! Their goal is to offer affordable and cute loungewear and accessories for brides and their bridesmaids. From cute pajama sets, bold statement earrings, and dainty pendant necklaces, a girl can find all of the best gifts for her girlfriends!  Aren't their Annie Post Earrings so festive?

If you are looking for something artistic, unique and a beautiful piece to hang on your wall or someone else's, look no further than Elle Woods Co. Her handmade reclaimed wood pieces are stunning and would be great gift for that friend who loves trendy art pieces!

Last, but certainly not least, is a one of a kind gift from Lo & Behold Stitchery. Brittany is a quilter who offers modern quilts for your chic farmhouse style sofa, or for those new moms who want a traditional, yet modern quilt for their new child. From baby quilts to full size quilts, you can find a truly special gift to take home!

By now, you should have cleared your calendar and told all of your friends to join us next Thursday, December 6th from 7:00PM-10:00PM for our open house and holiday market!

A Seat At The Table

Author: Chelsea Head

We all know that when you dream about your big day, you envision the dress, the flowers, the venue, and how you're going to walk down the aisle. But do you ever dream about where you and your partner will sit? Not many people do, but figuring out where you two will sit can be a great way for you to be creative and have that romantic space for you both.

There are plenty of options for your sweetheart seating, but there is usually the two more popular types. You can always opt for the more intimate sweetheart setting, where it is just you two at your own private table. That table could be tucked away from the rest of your guests or right in the middle. Or you could always choose to do the head table option. Both of you are seated with your best friends and bridal party so you are never away from all of the fun. There are pros and cons to both options, so just have to figure out what feels right to you.

Here is a bright, colorful, and fun sweetheart table featured at The Stockroom. They used our Ingrid Table with the Elaine Bench to create a new take on a sweetheart table.

Below is a really unique take on a head table. Amy of Plume Events created a head table with different upholstered furniture that created a cozy, yet chic look. Our Stacey ChairsBlaire Loveseat, and Erin Chair were the perfect pieces for this classic pairing.

At the beautiful McAlister-Leftwich House, Magnolia and Grace events put together an industrial, yet classic head table inside of this historic home. Our Industrial Farm Tables with our Ezra Chairs are the perfect juxtaposition of modern and classic in this setting.

Whether you choose to do a more traditional sweetheart table or a head table, your possibilities to create a unique setting are endless. Start thinking about how you can create something that represents the two of you and your love story, and how that best fits into your reception. Then come see us so we can bring that dream to a reality!

It’s Time for Holiday Parties!

Author: Chelsea Head

It's that time of year when it starts getting darker earlier, it's finally getting cooler (some days,) and it's that time to start thinking of your plans for the Holidays! We love this time of year when we get to gather with our friends, coworkers, and families to relax, now that the busy wedding season is finally over, and enjoy one another's company and the holiday.

Whether you are thinking about Thanksgiving, or you've already skipped straight to Christmas, we want you to consider us for your next holiday event! Our Marketplace is the perfect space to host your holiday dinner, get together with those girl friends, or gather with your family for an awesome experience. With the ability to host a gathering and not have to worry about the decor or having all those people in your house, this is the perfect space for you! We can set the space up casually, such as soft seating areas, or a little more formal with our farm tables and chairs. You can tell us a theme or let us come up with the design and decor. It's that simple!

This week, we are hosting our very own employee party/Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner. We are decking our space out in the holiday spirit and we want you to follow along! Check in with us on social media during the next two days to see some sneak peaks of the decor and some fun decorating tips! Who knows, maybe it will convince you to host your own party there!! So make sure you are following us on Instagram to see all of  the fun!!

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.

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!
