Elegantly Enclosed

Creatively enhancing the beauty of the outdoors with a gorgeous tent can take a lovely evening outside to an absolutely magical level. From a practical standpoint tents make good sense for obvious reasons, but let’s be honest: when done right they create a perfectly elegant space. Case in point, skillfully layered sun-soaked event featured above by EKS Events, in Aspen.

Known for their incredible bespoke events, Birch Design Studio, in Chicago, framed this pool perfectly, with a stylish structure, completing the backdrop for a serene and sophisticated soirée.

It’s all in the details. Left: from the draping, to the styling, Easton Events added the right amount of romantic soft touches to this Skyline tent; top, right: a perfectly placed chandelier, thanks to Birch Design Studio, creates a glamorous and eye-catching detail; bottom, right: cheerful and fun, the black and white dance floor, designed by Calder Clark, in Charleston, is the perfect accessory for the classic Sperry tent, from Sperry Tents Southeast, and creates a playful place for people to gather (and get down!).

Having an abundance of flowers and personal details ensures that people will feel at home, and the neutral Sperry tent, at Belle Haven, in Charlottesville, enhances the natural beauty inside and out.

Handcrafted by sailmakers, Sperry tents complement any setting with their classic lines, elegant peaks, and recognizable flags. Top and bottom, right: Sperry Tents Washington, DC tucks tents into just the right place balancing nature and structure thoughtfully; bottom, left: festive decorations, by Beehive Events captured by the talented Jen Fariello, play off of the fun and magical blue and white star Sperry tent.

A well-placed tent, or in this case a teepee, available from Sperry Tents Southeast, is not only statement-making but also anchors an entire field, making an open space immediately intimate. Not to mention, it pops against it’s surroundings, in a oh-so rustic-chic way.
