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!

Ladders in your Barn Wedding

A ladder, some bell jars, wild flowers for a pop of color and you have a rustic and affordable centerpiece/chandelier! Imagine this above image with some LED tea lights or twinkle lights. String it with ribbon for a backdrop? I can't stop writing ideas down for this simple prop that can create a show stopper of a statement. Hey why not?! The possibilities are endless. These images show the many ways you can use a ladder in a photo shoot or for your event décor. Let Scout help you find the perfect industrial or farm fresh ladder for your next creative vision.

I love the idea of using them as a creative way to display photos and keepsakes or even for favors or place settings.

Scout will be taking a page from this decorating trend and using ladders in a upcoming photo shoot for props. Get inspired with everyday items and easy décor solutions.
