Yes, we love deep rich colors but that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate the sweet beauty of soft pastels. For Erica and Josh, their wedding color palette included pale blues, pinks, and white, and as you can see, our vintage floral china was a wonderful fit. Set in the historic Merrimon-Wynne home in Raleigh and coordinated by Amy Wurster of Knots ‘N Such, this wedding was pure romance.

In addition to the mixed and matched vintage china, we set the table with our vintage clear goblets, silver-plate flatware and trays, and votive candleholders. With our vintage napkins folded and tucked under the plates, each guest had his or her own unique place setting. We love this!

Southern Vintage Table Events – The Durham Bride

A new blog and wedding resource is now online! The Durham Bride, hosted by Tiffany Englert, owner and event planner behind The Details Events, will be offering advice and vendor spotlights for “brides, grooms, and fans of the Bull City.”

Tiffany contacted Southern Vintage Table this summer and asked if we’d like to help with a photo shoot to kick off her new service. Of course, we were delighted by her invitation and she came to our studio to select the tableware. She decided on our vintage blue and amber goblets, layered vintage china plates, silver-plated flatware, two large compotes for the centerpieces, and silver candleholders. As you can see, her tablescape design was gorgeous!

She assembled a fantastic team of vendors, and with all the details in place, the shoot took place at the Kings Daughters Inn. Originally a residence for elderly single women, today this bed & breakfast inn adjacent to Duke’s campus is an elegant space for individual guests or large groups, including wedding celebrations.

The shoot was designed for the traditional bride and inspired by the stone from which the grand buildings on Duke campus were built.  As Tiffany explains, “Quarried from nearby Hillsborough, NC, the stone displays a rich palette of blues, grays, tans and rust colors that give the buildings a richness and warmth that otherwise would have been difficult to achieve.  Just in time for Fall palettes, the rich slate tones and warm copper tones are perfect for a southern Fall wedding!”

Southern Vintage Table Events – Afternoon Tea Reception

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

Three wonderful things happened this week!  First, we received gorgeous wedding photos of Jenn & Teague’s June wedding from Rebekah Senter Photography.  Second, Jenn and Teague’s wedding “Romantic Vintage Wedding at Rigmor House,” was published in Borrowed and Blue! And, third,  SVT has a business listing in Borrowed and Blue with two featured events. Wooo Hooo!

Our part in this beautiful occasion was to provide the vintage tableware for the Friday tea reception after the outdoor ceremony. Jenn wanted an English feel with all the tableware in blue and white so we had blue & white and white teapots for each table, blue & white china, and blue goblets. Our vintage napkins and silver flatware competed each place setting.

The reception plan was that we would set the tables inside the space in the morning and after the wedding, the guests would come in for tea. Well, the weather was not cooperative that weekend so Plan B was on – have the wedding ceremony inside and then quickly “flip” the room for the reception.

To help with this transformation we organized everything on the bar in the kitchen hallway, ready for the “flippers” to pick up. The teapots were lined up per table, plates stacked, and napkins folded. In the kitchen, Jenn and Teague’s family and friends were filling the tiered stands and serving dishes with the delicious treats for the buffet.

Although we weren’t there for the flip, Erica, owner of  Folie à Deux Events, assembled a great team.  As soon as the romantic ceremony concluded, they moved ceremony furniture out and reception tables in, dropped the linens, and then set the tables. Erica told us Jenn was so happy when she saw the transformation from this sweet ceremony to ….

Vintage Feature – If You Open A Studio, They Will Come…

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

In the movie, Field of Dreams, voices speak to corn farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) that “if you build it, he will come.” Listening to their message, he builds a baseball diamond in the middle of his corn field, trusting that his dream to reconcile with his dead father will come true.

Southern Vintage Table

We may not have heard the voices, but we did believe moving into the studio would mean our clients would come. And they have. This month we have been busy meeting with engaged couples, mothers and brides-to-be, and planners about their upcoming events, showing them our inventory, and offering ideas for their table design. Our dream is being realized and we couldn’t be more excited!

If you are planning a wedding reception, family dinner, baby shower, birthday party, or any special event, we will make a date for you to come, too. As Captain Janeway would say, “Do it!”

Southern Vintage Table Event – A Re-Celebration of Rebekah & Joey’s Wedding

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

Two years ago my hard drive crashed. Yikes. I knew I should have had a backup but did I? Nope. I called my computer guy to see what he could salvage and, of course, he asked if I had a backup. Thoroughly embarrassed,  I admitted that I did not. That’s when he gave me the bad news – that he might be able to recover some of the data but not all. Thankfully, he did get a lot of files back with strange file names that I had to rename and reorganize, but I knew many files were just lost. Lesson learned – I got set up on iCloud and another backup drive.

A couple weeks ago, as I’m looking for the photos from Rebekah and Joey’s September 2014 wedding and couldn’t find them, I remembered why – the hard drive crash. Because this was one of our first big weddings and it turned out so beautifully, I contacted the photographer, Anna Kirby, to see if she could help. And help she did. Gratefully, I downloaded new copies.  So, today’s post is a re-celebration of Rebekah and Joey’s gorgeous wedding, set at the Saint Thomas Preservation Hall in Wilmington, photographed by Anna Kirby Photography,

Southern Vintage Table Event – Rain or Shine, Devon & Brian’s Wedding Day Was Wonderful!

Today we have some spectacular photos from Devon and Brian’s April wedding. Their Duke Chapel ceremony and Merry Hill reception, captured by Jessica Arden Photography, demonstrate how fun a rainy wedding day can truly be!

After getting married at the grand Duke Chapel, the wedding party moved to the pastoral beauty of Merry Hill Farm to celebrate. For their reception meal, this lovely couple used a mix of our vintage floral patterns with blue and white china to create a colorful table for their guests. On the dessert table and decorated with delicious cupcakes, our vintage tiered stands presented a yummy display for friends and family. Although their celebratory plans had to change a bit when the evening rain began, perhaps a little rain can create the best memories!

“Thank you so much for providing the amazing china and being such a pleasure to work with for our wedding.  The plates were so beautiful and the tables looked amazing when everything came together!  It ended up being rainy on our wedding night, so we had to move everything under the tents and lost some of the pretty Merry Hill scenery, and I was so happy that we had beautiful table settings to add some color and charm to the tent space!  And don’t worry, we ended up having the most fun ever despite the rain!” – Devon

Gosh, this final photo at Duke Chapel is simply perfect! Congrats, Devon and Brian, and best wishes for a fun-filled future together, rain or shine!

We have been looking forward to Kelcey and Isaac’s wedding day for over a year and yesterday was the day!  All of the designing, planning, and organizing culminated in one of the most beautiful weddings we’ve ever seen. With our vintage place settings set on Greenhouse Picker Sisters‘ farm tables and Springwell Gardens‘ oh-so splendid flower arrangements, the reception area at Merry Hill Farm was transformed into a gorgeous sea of color and textures.

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

At each table were vintage vessels filled with beautiful floral bouquets, including a collection of teacups collected by Kelcey for her wedding day.  Springwell Gardens also created lovely aromatic bouquets in our vintage silver creamers, milk glass vases and compotes, and stoneware pitchers.

Final vintages touches included framed table markers, biscuit/tea tins, and books, Votives and candles in vintage brass candle holders added the sparkle of light at each table for the evening of fun and celebration.

Now we can’t wait to hear all the details and see the evening through Kelcey and Isaac’s professional photos. It was such a pleasure being part of this wedding day and working with a team of incredible vendors. We don’t have the complete vendor list but we’ll share them when we post the “real” photos!

Thanks to my sweet sisters, Rowena and Sharon, and dear friend Priscilla, for your help yesterday!  And, you’ll want to know that the “bury the bourbon” Southern tradition came through with a gorgeous North Carolina day!

And, of course, a heartfelt congratulations to Kelcey and Issac!  Best wishes for a loving, joyful life together!
