Hank calls it “Kara’s Treasure Chest.” I just call it our wedding décor collection. I started collecting decor soon after we purchased the property in July 2016…before we knew if we would be approved for a special use permit to open our venue. Hitting estate sales, yard sales, antique stores, and home goods stores, the décor collection slowly started growing and taking on a life of its own.
I wanted to offer a unique “shopping” experience for our couples as they planned the wedding of their dreams at Murphy Lane. I kept thinking…”Why buy twenty lanterns for a wedding and then have to figure out what to do with them after the wedding?” So I kept shopping and buying and building our own treasure trove of décor goodness. Since we were building a venue, we decided we wanted a venue that offered so much more than “just the venue.” We wanted to have décor available on-site in our own little decorator’s warehouse…AKA “Kara’s Treasure Chest.” Some have even compared us to Chip and Joanna! Not bad…I’ll take it!
At Murphy Lane, we include an extensive inventory of décor…at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE!!! We have easels, signs, side tables, pub tables, mirrors, votives, cylinder vases, tiered stands, gift tables, cake tables, sweetheart tables, memory tables, welcome tables, and several styles and sizes of lanterns, a 9 ½ foot wooden cross, and so much more. You really have to see it to believe it!
For a small service fee (delivery is included for free!), we also offer beautiful heavy old wooden church pews (Did I say heavy?), whiskey barrels, a white-washed set of wooden barn doors, a white wooden fireplace mantle, several styles of vintage sofas, a half-moon arbor, a brown wooden arbor and a white wooden arbor. We have mismatched vintage china. Outdoor heaters and firepit tables are available for the chilly months.
When we renovated the barn, our goal was to design a very neutral, Southern elegant feel inside the building. Adding fabulous florals and lovely table settings is the icing on the cake! We are here to help our couples create the wedding of their dreams! Our “Treasure Chest” is an added bonus that makes Murphy Lane the most unique wedding venue in the area!
If it isn’t Wedding Day, I may be out looking for more stuff…I mean, décor for our “Treasure Chest”! Decorating has always been a passion of mine! It’s even better when I get to shop for our home and the venue! Poor Hank!
Here are some of our “treasures” that are available for your BEST DAY EVER!
