Vintage Tea Party Dishes

Scenes from SVT – October 2, 2022

What a wild weekend here in NC! Hurricane Ian almost kept us from our weekly blog post but cable was restored earlier this evening just in time. Whew!

Last week a client and her friend came to the studio to select the vintage plates and goblets for her wedding that was taking place that weekend. One by one, they set each table with plates and goblets and then packed them by tables for easy setup. How many you might wonder? 150!

And, courtesy of An Event to Remember, here are two photos of their final tables. Don’t they look fabulous? Do you recognize the vintage plate in the first photo? That was one of our latest additions featured two weeks ago on our blog. It’s already a favorite!

We had so much fun packing for a birthday tea party that’s taking place this week in the mountains. The main colors for the tables of 4 were yellow, purple, pink, dark blue, green, and light blue. WIth our vintage teapots, teacups and saucers, salad plates, lemon plates, sugar and creamers, curd dishes, napkins, and flatware, the only things left are the tea and food!

Now for our new additions. We found one of each of the following dinner plates. The first is called Black Peony by Churchill. Hope we can find more of these! The second is also pretty awesome -made in the USA by Royal China. After searching online, we couldn’t find this pattern anywhere so it must be pretty rare. More goblets were added to our collection of vintage colored goblets. Amber is one of our most popular colors, especially in the fall, and these will be headed out next week!

Thanks again for checking in with us. Our latest project is the linen room New shelving units will replace the three dressers to provide much needed room so we can finally keep the door open!
