#tribeshops #reallygreatthings

Where do event designers go when they need inspiration, to find the je ne sais quoi to finish off a beautiful table or even to completely outfit a 150 person wedding with EVERY SINGLE piece of china from plates to teacups in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS? (true story! check out Rob + Nicole's wedding in our portfolio)

We go tribal. . . tribal antiquing that is. Three women on the hunt for whatever crosses our path. The fun is of course in the hunt itself. You never know what will cross your path and of course, we never JUST get what we are looking for. It is perhaps one of the favorite parts of my job. I've had a love of antiquing since I was child. Rainy Sundays spent with my parents hitting antique shop after antique shop. Back then I thought the best ones were near ice cream stands. For me, that still holds true.

Two of our favorite haunts are Bowerbird & Friends in Peterborough, NH and Jack + Toba in Concord, MA.  If you are out and about these two spots are not to be missed. They both do an amazing job presenting a wonderful array of carefully curated items old and new. I'm like a kid in an ice cream shop ;-). Everywhere I look I crave what I see. My entire lake cottage is filled with their stuff. Not to mention some of our very favorite editorial photographs from our 2016 Table Design Series. 

Not sure what to put on the table for your next dinner party? Our recommendation: go antiquing. Wishing you happy hunting.

PS. If you are looking for the ice cream shops nearby Ava Marie Chocolates in Peterborough and Bedford Farms in Concord are my recommendations. 

BLISS CELEBRATIONS GUIDE 2016

Last night marked the release of the 2016 Bliss Celebrations Guide. The launch event was beautifully presented at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. Amy and her team put on a fun and festive event. We met some amazing and talented people and are thrilled to be keeping company with some of New England's finest in the event industry. 

TRIBE is featured a number of times in the Bliss Celebrations Guide (yeah us!). Specifically our Supermoon editorial shoot, an invitation and photo from a NH summer wedding, a custom invitation in the After the Hunt editorial spread and of course our 2016 ad campaign. 

 

We can't thank our talented partners on these endeavors enough. Kuddos to all of you! Details and links below.
