As this week’s mailbox confirmed, one of our most popular rentals at Southern Vintage Table is our vintage blue goblets . Two of our clients shared photos from their blue-themed weddings; one was held indoors and the other was an outdoor celebration with the color blue taking center stage.

The first set of photos are from a March wedding at The Barn of Chapel Hill, shared by F8 Photo Studios. We love how our vintage blue glassware “pops” on Rochelle and Chris’ reception tables. And that photo from above of the single table? Wow.

Our second blue wedding was held in Whitsett at the Timberlake Earth Sanctuary, a unique outdoor venue “dedicated to honoring and protecting Mother Earth and all beings.”  Emma and Jonathan designed their place settings with our classic vintage blue & white china, blue goblets, and stainless flatware. As you can see from Photography by Kelsey Rae‘s photos, this wedding seemed right at home with its serene surroundings.

Love blue as much as we do?  Our vintage offerings may be exactly what you want for your next celebration!

Southern Vintage Table Event – A Bridal Shower, Wedding Reception, & Tea Party

After a two-weddings’ weekend, this weekend’s events were a little-bit-of-this and a little-bit-of-that – a bridal shower, a wedding reception, and a tea party! As you might guess, it was busy, busy in the studio – washing the dishes from last weekend and then preparing for the three events and their pickups. Thankfully, Priscilla came over and helped get things organized and ready.

The stainless vintage flatware seen above was for Emma and Jonathan’s wedding reception. Don’t you love the variety and details? These went with our blue and white china, light blue goblets and a few milk glass accents. Looking forward to seeing these photos!

The second event was a dinner party/bridal shower. Susan chose our vintage elegant china dinner plates eclectically matched with salad plates, a mix of teal, amber, and pink goblets, and vintage silver-plate flatware. With an Italian feast on the menu, the guests are being treated to a grand party!

The third event is happening today – a mother-daughter tea party for almost 200 guests at the Mims House. With our vintage teapots, teacups, and tiered stands, this fundraiser affair is sure to be a crowd pleaser. The proceeds are going to help a group of talented dancers from the Holly Springs Ballet School participate in the Macy’s Christmas Parade. We hope they get closer to their goal after this weekend!

Sharing our vintage treasures is such a joy for us and we love seeing photos and hearing about all the details. Let us help you with your next party, dinner, reception, or gathering!

Last Thursday evening at The Mill Room at the Factory in Wake Forest a group of business leaders from the Rolesville Chamber of Commerce gathered together for their annual awards dinner.  It was a busy, fun evening for everyone – silent raffles, music by the Rolesville High Orchestra, speeches, awards, recognition of the members of the Youth Leadership, and, of course, a delicious meal provided by Cannon Catering.

Vintage Tip – Repurposing Vintage into Storage

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

Southern Vintage Table

After moving to our studio almost a year ago, we were psyched about the seemingly endless space to store and showcase our vintage collections. Open floor space was quickly covered with rows of shelves and, licketly-split, empty shelves were filled with candleholders, plates, goblets, and all sorts of vintage treasures. It didn’t take long before we needed to creatively invent space where there was none!

Our three vintage trunks became our first creative storage solution. To make room on a section of shelves, we removed all but a few mason jars and placed the rest in two trunks. The trunks were then stacked on top of each other and the top trunk became the perfect place to display our many frames.  It also looks pretty cool, huh?

We found a old heavy-duty file cabinet for almost nothing ($2.99!). Now filed away in each of the drawers are tablecloths. See that adorable pink dresser?  Those drawers are filled with small bowls and dessert compotes.

With our 400+ vintage dessert plates, it became difficult to see all of the sweet patterns when stacked up and keeping the metal trays neatly displayed was nearly impossible. The solution? Dresser drawers! Now we can easily select the perfect dessert plate or metal tray!

Southern Vintage Table

Our favorite storage solution is these trio of old-school office supplies. Inside the green filing cabinet are vintage doilies and the brown magazine file drawers are filled with small silver-plate trays. The metal file dividers now display trays of all sorts!

Come visit us at our studio! Available by appointment, we’ll meet you at the door and even open a few drawers!

Last Sunday we headed to an open house at Forest Hall at Chatham Mills in Pittsboro. Every facet of wedding vendors was present. From food, drink, and florals to music, photography, and rentals, professionals were ready and available to help guests with their wedding plans. These wondrous photos, courtesy of Morgan Caddell Photography, captured the moments just before the doors opened.

In addition to our business table, we set the tables at Forest Hall with our vintage white stoneware, blue & white dishes, flatware, glassware, and napkins. Centerpieces and decor were arranged by two talented floral vendors; farm tables- All In Bloom, and round tables – Barn of Chapel Hill. With both round cloth-covered and bare farm tables presented, folks could envision the versatility and beauty of this historic space.

Southern Vintage Table Events – Open House Today at Forest Hall!

Today we are headed to Pittsboro to participate in an open house hosted by Anessa and Nathan Grimes at the Forest Hall in Chatham Mills. Set with our vintage white stoneware, goblets, flatware, and napkins, the tables mesh perfectly in this historic space.

This is not our first experience with this hip venue. We had the pleasure of helping Caroline and Alexander with their brunch reception and loved everything about their design using our vintage wildflower collection and colored goblets. And, yes, the windows are fabulous!
