Vintage Feature – It’s Blog Break Month!

We won’t be publishing our Sunday blog post during July but we have much to do. The list is a bit tedious –sigh- but nonetheless; it will feel good to mark them off the list, especially the first two.

!.  Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork. Oh boy, the pile is deep and we need to get our orders and contracts organized in our notebook.

2. Update spreadsheets. Business goals need to be evaluated and expenses organized. Yay!

3. Curate inventory. After spending this past year in our studio space, we now have a better notion of items that clients want for their event. This task will be hard for a different reason – we love everything and hate to let anything go. We hope it won’t be too traumatic!

So, that’s the July to-do list. Look for our next post on August 5th. We still will be serving clients and taking studio appointments so don’t hesitate to give us a call or send an email! We’ll love to hear from you!

Southern Vintage Table Event – Beautiful Vintage Blue

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!

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.
