We are taking a blog break during the month of July but that doesn’t mean we won’t be hard at work! In fact, we have three assignments to have finished before the month’s end and here they are:
1 – Construct a farm table top.
When clients visit our studio, we want them to explore our vintage offerings and be able to set sample table place settings for their guests. We recently added this work table, as seen below, and we’ll be making a wooden farm table slab to place on top. Can’t wait to get the power tools out and start on this assignment!!
2 – Finalize and print our business brochure.
With all of the beautiful photos from the many talented professional photographers, it’s been so delightful to work on this project. We still need to add more text and the photo credits but it’s close – at least this draft.
3 – Finish moving our inventory.
Yep, we’ve got more to pack and move to the studio, including this heavy vintage store shelving unit. Although this is our least favorite assignment, it is the one we can wait to finish!
Check on us in August to see how we did on our assignments. ‘Till then, wishing ya’ll a fun, carefree July!
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!
Some sit flat and others have feet or a pedestal. They come in a variety of shapes, textures, and materials. Most are solid colored but some are tinged with an accent shade. And, they are perfect for low floral arrangements while adding a hip, cool zing to the table. We’re talking about vintage planters and we definitely have a “thing” for them!
Here’s a sampling of our vintage pottery collection!
See what we mean? Aren’t they wonderful? See more of our inventory and imagine arranging beautiful florals, holding dessert forks, or displaying pretty straws for your guests in these hip, vintage vessels!

Planning your wedding or special occasion? Need signs so your guests can find their table? Love the look of vintage? Well, we’ve got your number – table number, that is!
We’ve been collecting vintage brass frames for a while and our collection has grown little by little. We now enough 5X7″ frames to offer as a set to be used as table signs or even menu signs for your guest tables. With over 25 and counting, you can add a vintage touch that’s also useful and pretty.
If you’d like us to print and insert the table numbers (we’ll make certain to center them, too -haha! ) or pickup early so you can, please ask.
Starting the new year with exciting news about our 2nd print magazine feature! We took part in a beautifully styled shoot last spring that we described in our blog post, Three Terrific Takeaways from Rose Hill Styled Shoot. We all felt the shoot was something pretty special and Southern Bride Magazine agrees! The shoot can be found in the Winter/Spring 2017 edition under”Poised and Polished” (page 104), and it looks fabulous!
After gazing at these gorgeous photographs by Jackson Signature Photography, you will want to read the backstory of this incredible day. But today is all about imagery and you’ll love these photos showcasing our vintage wares.
Sometimes you’ve got to do it and today is our day. We are talking about sharing achievements, patting yourself on your back, or tooting your horn. We believe our clients as well as our many friends, enjoy hearing good news about anyone anytime, right? So, that’s what we are doing today – we are sharing 3 moments of great pride from this past year.

Toot 3: Finished our 3rd Year and Ready for Year 4!
Three toots for our past three years in business and we are ready for our 4th ! Got an event planned for this year? We are here to help!
Preparations for the Bass family reunion began Wednesday with Christine’s daughters preparing the Masonic Lodge in Rolesville for our annual Thanksgiving feast. This year our centerpiece design included simple greenery and vines from our yards, white pillar candles and gold votives, and painted pinecones. With colorful printed napkins, mixed and matched vintage white stoneware patterns, and our brilliant vintage goblets. the cheerful tables were ready for our 60+ family members and friends.
Our Thanksgiving family tradition began in the 1960s by our grandparents and parents and has continued every year since. We all look forward to this day when family means parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, daughters, sons, grandchildren, friends, and neighbors. With four generations represented in the Bass lineage, tomorrow’s coveted day certainly will be filled with fun, love, laughter, and delicious food. More photos will be added to this post when they come in – we’ll keep you posted via our Facebook page!
We are very happy to show off more professional photos this week! These are from Chris and Kristen’s August wedding, captured by Casey Rose Photography, at the historic venue in Raleigh, All Saints Chapel.
Many pieces from Southern Vintage Table’s dessert collection were on display at this lovely wedding reception. Our vintage cake stands and tiered stand showcased the sumptuous cake and cupcakes created by Edible Art of Raleigh. All lined up at the candy station, stacked and filled with sweet delectables, was an array of our stands as well as our vintage candy jars and scoops. With Knots ‘N Such designer Amy Wurster’s creative touch, it all looked wonderful!
If these lovely photos just wet your whistle and you’d like to see more, head over to Knots’N Such’s blog post. Here’s a shout out to the vendors who provided their professional services for this wonderful affair:
