Think outside of the cage!

We find that we rent out birdcages 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! 

We have 4 birdcages in our inventory that rent from $8 - $35. We have two the are even 6 feet tall! Contact Scout today! We can help you think outside of the box (or cage) and come up with some unique and unforgettable decor ideas using bird cages!

Playing with color and pattern

So many inspirations for spring and new inventory on the way. To all of you that I got to meet and connect with at the bridal fair I thank you! It is so nice to be refreshed and full of energy for what is on the horizon. Cheers, xxoo

New Inventory

Here at Scout we are always trying to keep up with the latest and greatest in decor and styles. We have notice that there are a lot of rustic and simple, yet elegant trends happening. We are acquiring more and more of this fabulous genre and we hope that they include whiskey barrels and old ladders for dramatic and functional pieces. What a great way of making your modern wedding or special event work with a rustic locale or enhance an already rustic feeling with even more small touches and details. Contact Megan and Scout today and let them lead the way! 

Scout at our First Bridal Fair

Thank you to everyone for coming out and being a part of my day at the River Valley Bridal Fair! What a day. I really got a sense of what brides and grooms are looking for and my wheels are spinning!

I have a few new items to search for and acquire. Here at Scout we want you to know that "scouting" out new one-of-a-kind items is out job! If you didn't see what you are looking for on the website or in person at the fair, contact us! We love looking for new pieces and need to add to our inventory. At no cost to you (except the rental price for items) we will find that unique piece are you looking for. 

I had such a good time putting this booth together and setting up to showcase what Scout is all about. I think in a nutshell or 10 by 7 space I accomplished just that! 

Happy planning to you new brides out there and remember to have fun! Thank you for considering Scout!

What a beautiful fall day to be stuck inside sick. At least I have the energy to search out some fall inspirations while the babe takes her nap. I have found that these inspirations have no real rhyme or reason but when I uploaded them all they all seemed to work together and would all look at home in a late fall party. I love the idea of building a open air room full of farm windows that would create perfect vignettes for photos and décor.  
The centerpiece in this next image are so unique and simple. Scout has similar  books and a huge deer collection available to rent.

I still can't get enough of chalkboard everything and this dessert table backdrop is no exception. "Love makes the world go round and so does cake."

This book backdrop is adorable and Scout has it for you! It will soon be pictured in our inventory. Folded and sculptural and such a big statement piece.

I love bell jars and candles but adding crocheted texture to it makes it more warm and cozy and perfect for fall. In fact, check these jars out at Hello the House in downtown Hudson, vendor #22.

And then there is this. Maybe it takes a certain type of person to appreciate a branch full of vintage birds. Just imagine this at a centerpiece, or a huge almost installation.

Make sure to contact Scout with any questions or if you loved any of the inspiration phtotos. We can make your event come alive and true to who you are.

It is Offical!

Holy Cow, Scout has a website... if that weren't real enough I have to pat myself on the back for actually building it myself! I thought about hiring someone to crank it out for me but I am glad that I took the time to do it. Because after it was all said and done I had the say and the vision to finish it and keep it consistent with the aesthetic of Scout and true to myself. I even bought my own domain name! go see and let me know what you think! Especially if you find mistakes! Spelling is not my thing.

So here is to new beginnings and scary ones too. Here is to moments of realization and moments of bravery. I don't know how this will work and how it will enrich my life. But I feel that having this creative outlet is something I need to be happy and to function in my world. I am an artist, always have been and I suppose always will be. I have found my niche and I am not lost any more. My hope is that with Scout I am able to share my visions and talents and treasures with others that value beauty and originality. Here is to vintage, beauty, and happiness!
