Blush & Borrowed was founded on the idea that everyone should pursue what they love in life. In our case, we love events and vintage picking! Here's our story! After both getting married in 2017, we had TONS of thoughtful decor pieces selected over our engagements and it seemed like a total shame to throw them in a basement, never to be seen again. Why not provide these ONCE used items to other brides to help trim the never ending stream of costs?! That's where it all started.
In both of our homes, HGTV is on regularly - similar to in your house, we're sure! Does Joanna Gaines ring a bell?! Another hobby of ours is vintage picking, so in addition to collecting gently used decor items from brides in the Chicagoland area, we started going to local antique shops. Our mission is to collect every beautiful dessert platter, gold candlestick, vintage window...you name it, we have our eyes on it! We continue to add to our collection of rental decor items, hence, the name Blush and Borrowed.
Oh yeah, did we mention that we went to college together (Roll Birds)! We then landed a job at the same agency in the events industry out of college, planning national, experiential programs and special events for brands like Microsoft, Illinois Lottery, Venetian of Las Vegas, Nike SB and EcoTools, to name a few. We have a strong passion for events and can not wait to bring our expertise and ideas to our clients.
Whether you are planning a wedding, bridal shower, baby shower, bachelorette party, gender-reveal, we will make sure everything goes off without a hitch - because we are OCD like that. Talk soon!
