For those of you who have flown into Denver you will be familiar with the process of getting off the plane and loading like sardines into the airport tram when a sound comes on the speakers: an electric guitar rift with a country undertone and the mayor of Denver with his thick country accent that I could have sworn was the same character as Rooster Cogburn in True Grit. This gritty mayor reminded all passengers of the great sights and shopping that Denver has to offer.
One of those great shopping areas is called Larimer Square. This unique streets offers high end shopping in vintage boutique store fronts. There was a ton of cute shopping with lots of inspiration for weddings or home decor in general. As I started off on my mini-shopping adventure I started off with a cute doggy boutique, which I of course had to go in and spoil my dog with all kinds of cutesie items at Dog Savvy Boutique & Spa.
I had to get Harlow a wine toy so that way on Wino Wednesday I won’t be the only one with a bottle in my hands!
And I wish I could have bought one of these adorable tutus for Harlow, but she would eat it alive. That’s one thing my pup is not… a girly dog. She wears her Wonder Woman collar and that is about as girly as it gets!
After spending too much time on my pup I needed to go spoil myself in other stores. My first stop was a urban cowboy store called Cry Baby Ranch. If you’re into the rock-a-billy style than this store is for you. This store is obviously named after one of my all-time favorite Johnny Depp movies Cry Baby. I had flashbacks of myself running around my house with bandanas wraped around my head and arms, riding my motorcycle around the living room. In addition with the flashbacks to the past, I also found a lot of inspiration for my current living room and also for wedding themes for my local Sacramento brides. A recent trend seen on the runway and off is a flash back to the days of Patsy Cline with a city twist. This is done by using venues of brick decor, accented by vingtage, organic designs that soften the modern city look with a country soft vibe. Recently, I saw pictures from a friend’s wedding that used the “on the runway” look of color blocking. Her flower girl’s dress was a beaturful black and white stripped bell dress that stood out against the bridesmaids who had slate adn black color dresses and gorgeous deep red roses. I was reminded of this by the decor that I saw in Cry Baby Ranch and found a great way to twist in that rock-a-billy style.
If you really want to get that rock-a-billy style in your wedding could you imagine hiding a pair of pink bowtie skull boots underneath your dress?
As I was picking out picture frames I came across this table that had crowns on them. I absolutely fell inlove with the metal antiqued crowns. How great it would be to have these as center pieces on a reception table and fill each section full of fluffy flowers, such as peonies or hydrangeas. The white ornamental picture frames could also be used as table numbers.
