Featured Item: Birdcages

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

One of the things we like about our Featured Item blog posts is showing some alternate ways to use an item in our inventory. Birdcages are a perfect example of this, since we primarily find that we rent them for use as a vessel for holding cards at weddings or showers. As much as we love this idea - and often suggest it - we also love the idea of using our birdcages for other types of decor. Think centerpieces or chandeliers!

Featured Item: Mirrors

Thursday, February 6, 2014

The featured item this week has a myriad of uses and we are very excited to share some photographs of how they have been used by our clients.  Our mismatched gold mirrors come in assorted shapes and designs and, let me tell you, they aren't just for displaying your perfume on your dresser anymore!

With all the new inventory that we are introducing, we thought it was time for another recipe (see here and here for more)! It is always exciting when we can offer our customers a number of pieces that work together to create one unique concept. Since signage is an integral part of many events, this recipe is really versatile. Plus, with our variety of surfaces and custom writing, there are so many creative options available to getting the exact look that you want.  

Table Design: Urban Foodie

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

In the past we've shared with you table designs we've created such as MadLove and more recently, Rocky Mountain Rustic. From this weekend, we'd love to share with you the table we designed called "Urban Foodie" for the Wedding Planner and Guide Winter Bridal Show.

A La Crate Urban Foodie Display

New for 2014!

Wednesday, January 8, 2014

As we ease into 2014, there are a lot of exciting things happening at A LA CRATE. First and foremost, we have some great (and I mean really special) new items that we are adding to our inventory. As loyal followers of our blog, you are going to get the first glimpse of some of them. Feel free to share with friends! One of the most exciting additions to our inventory are our new Reclaimed Wood 8-foot Benches to match our handmade Harvest Tables. The benches are also handmade (by Jeff and our dear friend Joe) and we are really happy to be offering them both as a seating option for our tables or as a stand-alone piece. They will be available this Spring!
