The Rental Process at SVT

News – The Vintage Rental Process – We Are Here for You!

You are planning a wedding, dinner party, birthday celebration, cocktail party, or baby shower and looking for something unique, fun, and eco-friendly. You kinda know what you want but need to see how it will actually look. This is where we come in!

We love sharing our inventory and ideas but, more importantly, we totally dig the part where we help YOU create YOUR vintage look. It might be elegant or boho, blue & white or white, amber goblets or clear – whatever it is, it will be the design you love. Ready to know more?

It all begins with an email, a completed form from the contact page, a phone call, or an inquiry through Wedding Wire or The Knot. From there, we gather information regarding the date, guest size, and venue to make sure we are available for you. If everything is open, we can continue through email or setup an appointment at the studio. Of course, we love to have visitors at the studio! Here’s what you can expect to see…

When you open the front door, you’ll walk into the first door to Southern Vintage Table’s studio. Immediately you will be amazed by an unbelievable display of colorful vintage goblets, clear goblets, and glass dishes. One wall is filled with vintage dinner plates – white stoneware, blue & white, red & white, and elegant pink florals. Sometimes overlooked are the rows of vintage pitchers and decanters on the top shelves. Our vintage flatware – silver-plate, stainless, and gold – are in bins, including serving pieces such as tongs, salad servers, cake servers, and punch bowl ladles.

Our vintage retro, stoneware, and gold & white dinner plate collection is on shelves in the next room. You’ll also find blue & white, white, and floral salad/dessert plates along with an amazing display of teapots, teacups, and tiered stands. In the second photo you can see the shelves filled with blue & white pots, vases, candleholders, ginger jars, and umbrella stands. So much to see!

Connecting to this room are shelves of vintage serving dishes, cake stands, milk glass vases as well as silver-plated teapots, sugar & creamers. We also have wood serving pieces such as bowls, trays, and cake stands.

The back room is stocked with, well, everything else – vintage candleholders, brass planters, suitcases, cameras, clocks, silver-plate pieces, linens, and so much more. This space is filled with inspiration!

After a quick tour of the rooms, we’ll set the stage for your tablescape by covering either the round or rectangular table with linen color of your choice. The magic then begins! You select the vintage plates, goblets, flatware, whatever, and begin designing the table. If interested, you can add the vintage decor such as candleholders, votives, and vasesl. We even have faux flowers to fill the vases so you can see how the complete table will look!

Once your vision materializes and you are nothing but thrilled, we’ll make note of the pieces you’ve selected and discuss any other details pertinent to the event. Through email, we’ll email a rental proposal and contract for your approval. When everything is just as you wish, you’ll send a signed contract and a nonrefundable deposit to hold the pieces for your date. We even have 3 ways to pay – check, PenPal, and Venmo.

Closer to the date, the rental order is reviewed and revised as needed, the balance submitted, and then your vintage party package can either be delivered or picked up.

That’s it! Let the celebration begin…
