Southern Vintage Table Event – Vintage China, Local Flowers, and a Historic Venue

Attention tea party lovers!  Last week the Yayas, a group of very close friends, hosted a bridal shower tea party for Casey at the historic King’s Daughters Inn in Durham, NC. Since Casey is a daughter of one of the YaYas, this tea party needed to be extra special!

The four guest tables in the dining room featured four different color schemes – pink, yellow, green, and blue & white. Dainty teacups sat beside trays of scones, platters of mini ham biscuits, and petite bowls of cheese straws. Tiered stands of cookies, strawberries, and tea sandwiches adorned each table. Four different flavored mini cupcakes, nestled on cake stands, completed the tea party menu.

After guests enjoyed their tea party fare, they were invited to the flower table where an array of beautiful flowers awaited their attention. Each guest created their own floral arrangement using the locally grown flowers from Fernrock Farm. Each designed a unique floral bouquet to take home. One guest remarked that it was her favorite shower activity. Yay!

We then adjourned to the parlor to enjoy watching Casey open her shower gifts. She was delighted by the thoughtful presents and looks forward to using them with her new husband!

Many thanks to Tubga Musurfu for capturing beautiful photos to record this joyous occasion! Additionally, the YaYas and Southern Vintage Table highly recommend the services provided by Cathleen, Events Manager, and crew at the King’s Daughters Inn. Finally, we appreciate the advice and beautiful locally grown flowers from Fernrock Farm in Hillsborough. Carrie can provide buckets of gorgeous flowers or create beautiful fresh floral arrangements for you!

Dang – We wanted this week’s post to feature before and after photos of The Parlour at Manns Chapel’s open house but it just couldn’t happen! Our weekend is joyfully packed with this gala event, a mother-daughter tea party, and a Sunday bridal tea shower we are hosting with the dearest of friends.

This post is being written Saturday morning before heading over to Fernrock Farm to fill brass vases with Carrie’s gorgeous flowers. Then Priscilla and I are going to The Parlour at Manns Chapel for our evening open house. Sunday morning our destination is the Kings Daughters Inn in Durham to set up and host our bridal tea party. Busy, busy, busy and we love it!

Here are a few photos of our Friday afternoon setup sans beautiful flowers by Fernrock Farm which will add that last bit of gorgeousness. Our setup showcased our 5 vintage collections – white stoneware, elegant florals, blue and white, bold retro, and wildflower stoneware – along with samples of our vintage table decor. More photos of the evening will be forthcoming!

Vintage Feature – We’re Back to our Sunday Blogging!

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

Hey all!  August is here and we’ve got lots to share from our July hiatus. As mentioned in our last post, we had three goals to accomplish. First, we tackled all the paper work stuff including updating our business spreadsheets. Phew! The more difficult task, curating our collection, has begun but there’s still more to do. It’s hard to give up a vintage treasure!

Of course, finding and adding new items to our vintage collections is always fun! We now have a vintage milk glass punch bowl, some new vintage teapots and teacups, and more patterns of vintage plates. New napkins have been fashioned from thrift store fabrics and we’ve also found a few to add to our printed napkin collection.

Inside the studio, our quest for organization continues. Two additional dressers have linens in their drawers, two new lights hang overhead, and several shelves reorganized. Our favorite addition to the studio is this terrific 1950s kitchen cart that now provides much needed surface space in our work area.

It’s good to set focused goals and, even if we fell a little short, much has been accomplished this month. As a result, we’re even more ready for the busy fall wedding season ahead and have a few open 2018 dates and are scheduling clients for 2019. Send us an email from our contact page or give us a call. We’d love to help!

Vintage Feature – The Magic of Mixing and Matching China Patterns

What a wonderful, busy week! We’ve helped with three weddings – a rehearsal dinner at Stoneleigh Estate in Virginia, a reception at Windy Hill Farm in Cedar Grove, and a reception at Snipes Farm in Chapel Hill. We look forward to sharing a few photos from each of these in the near future but today we want to share five different place settings created for Lindsay and Greg’s reception tables.

This couple wanted a vintage salad and dinner plate for each guest. When preparing for an order that includes this pairing, we first select a mix of vintage dinner plates. One by one, each dinner plate is matched with a salad plate with a complementary pattern. The results of this “labor of love” are mixed and matched, beautiful, unique place settings for each guest!

We truly enjoy meeting our clients. and oftentimes, there’s an authentic, instant connection. When Susan and Lindsay came to the studio last fall to plan for Lindsay’s wedding reception this June, we just clicked! This immediate rapport helped make our planning meeting both enjoyable and productive.

Several months back, Susan and I met again to plan Lindsay’s bridal shower table settings – an elegant palette with soft, spring colors of teal, yellow, purple, and pink. Hosted at Susan’s home, the guests were treated to colorful vintage place settings and a delicious meal to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of Lindsay and Brad.
