Chicago Style Shoot: Clover's January Tablescape

After so many years working in the Chicago events industry, we've developed relationships with some truly exceptional vendors. We were excited to team up with one of our favorite planners, Clover Events, for a recent style shoot! The look featured in this shoot is a neutral array of colors offset by a pop of subtle green, and we LOVE it. We'll be working with Clover Events for monthly style shoots just like this one, so keep an eye out for some tablescape inspiration throughout the year!
