Virtual Family Tree January 29, 2013

Yesterday was day 19 of The Knot’s 100 Days of Inspiration, featuring our virtual family tree installation at Liberty Warehouse.

“For a family-oriented wedding Barb Salzman, founder of Hatch Creative Studio, created this 3D family tree representing several generations of the couples’ families.  “The whole wedding was about family and the stories,” says Barb, so the tree was the perfect way to incorporate the family members into the day. Barb carried the tree theme throughout the decor, even incorporating oversized trees into the centerpieces for an earthy look.” Read the full post on The Knot blog! 


Hatch goes to Aspen January 24, 2013

This week Barb has been in Aspen, Colorado for the X-games! Office Depot was a sponsor of this year’s event so Hatch designed a lodge inspired lounge for their booth at the games. Today kicks off the first day of the games and the reveal of the Office Depot Lounge!  For any of you at the games, stop by the booth to charge your phone in the charging station and try out all the nifty tablets, headphones, and computers on display. Stay up to date with what’s happening at the booth and the X-games with #odxgames.  A huge thanks to our partners who we definitely couldn’t do this without. Thanks  Eventage for producing such a great event and giving us this incredible opportunity and to  Reuben Negron  for his incredible rendering  and design skills.  Yet again…everyone is saying, “It looks just like the rendering.”

Take a look below for the before and after of the booth.




Good luck to all of the athletes competing!


A huge thank you to our fans and  The Knot for voting Hatch Best of Weddings 2013. We are so excited to see what this upcoming year has in store!


Day 9 on The Knot’s 100 Days of Inspiration featured one of our favorite projects: vintage slide projector photo votives!

“To create a custom retro touch, Barb Salzman transformed simple votive candle holders into stunning vintage photo displays using old slide projector photos. The groom from this wedding was actually an art historian with a focus on lighting, which made it all the more meaningful.

Don’t have any cool retro items laying around? Every weekend Barb travels to flea markets and vintage sales hunting for pieces to repurpose into unique decor. If you’re not so adventurous, you can even rent found objects and items from Hatch Creative Studio’s Prop Shop, or search, for interesting vintage table decor.”

100 Days of Inspiration January 10, 2013

Exciting news in the Hatch studio today! Barb just got voted in the top 10 most inspiring people in weddings by The Knot. We are so excited to be contributing to their “100 Days of Inspiration” on their blog! Yesterday was “Day 1“, featuring our fun animal topiaries at The Pierre! Huge thanks to Ellen at Sidekick Events for being such a great planner at this wedding and Dave Robbins for being the best animal topiary photographer around! Read the full post on the The Knot Blog!


“To kick off our 100 days of inspiration, we’re starting with these cute creations: animal-shaped topiaries created by Barb Salzman at Hatch Creative Studio. The green monkey (yep, you read that right!), rabbit and elephant were made entirely out of moss — and added a playful vibe to an otherwise elegant escort card table.”

“While the overall design of the wedding created with flowers, candles, and textures creates the general feel of the event, it’s the details that make it personal and unique to each couple,” Barb explains. The animal topiary “shows a deeper glimpse into our couples and the sense of humor that most of our clients have.”
