Busting at the Seams!

It's been a busy couple of weeks in the world of Lime Canary! We've just moved into a new, bigger space. Oh the joy! We could no longer shimmy through the aisles of our old quarters, so we had to get some bigger digs. We're still in the same, rad warehouse, just up a floor. There's definitely some grand plans to make this space awesome. We can't wait! The current state of the Lime Canary Nest is organized chaos, but we'll be busting out paint, fabrics and shelving soon! Here's a sneak peak of our new space before all the goods moved in.

An Ode to the Mason Jar

Oh the mason jar. You've probably seen them everywhere in the wedding world. We still love these little charmers. I love the vintage feel of a mason jar and they are a budget friendly way to infuse your event with some charm. Here's some new ways to use those mason jars to your heart's content. 

We love, love, love the look of these spray painted mason jars. They add a bit of a modern twist to vintage styling, and they look amazing!

Holy cats! We want to create this mason jar lighting installation for somebody! Everything about it is super rad. It's really romantic and oh so stunning! Pretty please, let us create it for you.

This is a sweet twist on the mason jar as a vase trend. A single bloom hanging from nature has quite an impact and we think it's swell.
Who wouldn't want to take a mason jar full of candy home? This is a fun way to send you guests on their merry way. Fill the jars with some old time candies if you want to keep the vintage going through your entire event. Yum!

Meet Vernon

We'd like to introduce you to our newest Lime Canary family member, Vernon. He's a stud. Vernon had been living his life as a photo studio prop, but his services were no longer needed. We decided to snatch him up so he could expand his resume and keep proppin' it up in the event world. He's sporting some gold, crushed velvet digs, and we think you should seriously consider renting him!
