Vintage Boho Sweetheart Table

Southern Vintage Table Events – Boho Beautiful Wedding

Today you will be treated to RaShawnda and Collin’s beautiful Boho wedding held this past month at Bakery 105 in Wilmington. Courtesy of Grayden Knoll‘s photos, we were awed by everything, from the arch to the brick walls, and especially by this gorgeous couple.

We met RaShawnda when she came to the studio with her talented planner, Hayley of An Event to Remember. Together they designed the centerpieces and sweetheart table using our vintage decor. They chose vintage books, wooden and brass candleholders, wood slices, amber and green peg votives, and amber goblets for the sweetheart table. An assortment of our framed mirrors and blackboards were also needed to greet guests

Now, take a look and be sure to scroll all the way down – we saved the best for last!

Southern Vintage Table Events – Our Vintage Glassware Gleams at Fundraiser Dinner

This fall we had the unique opportunity to help with a fundraiser meal held at The Uwharrrie Mercantile in Troy, NC. “The Supper Club with Anthony” was organized to feature this talented chef as well as a fundraiser to support a local candidate for sheriff. A two-for-oner!

When our clients, who were spearheading the event, visited the studio they knew what they wanted for this special meal. First, vintage white stoneware plates were requested by Chef Anthony to complement his menu. The clients decided on small vintage elegant salad plates, stainless flatware, and, as you see in our photos, vintage colored goblets. Brian King’s photos truly capture their vintage beauty.

We loved their selection of vintage serving bowls for Anthony’s delicious rolls and, for the butter, they chose to use vintage teacups and saucers. Awesome idea, right?

Thanks, Stacey and team, for choosing us to help with your event. After meeting ya’ll, we have added Troy and the Uhwarrie Mercantile to our places-to-visit list!

JC Raulston Arboretum

Southern Vintage Table Events – An Exquisite Garden Wedding

Their’s was not the typical wedding. The ceremony was scheduled for the middle of the day at a lush garden, The JC Raulston Arboretum. After the celebratory meal, the guests were treated to tea time, complete with wedding cake and desserts. Tea time is a part of Juri and Sebastian’s daily time together and they invited their guests to join them on their wedding day. Such a sweet, meaningful jesture!

That’s where we came in. Our vintage teacups, pots, tiered stands, sugar and creamer sets, and assorted table decor were used on the dessert and guests’ tables. Each table had a color theme – gold, green, blue, and pink/purple – and the pieces selected coordinated with it. We fondly recall the day Paula and Stephanie, owner of Beauty and the Budget Events, visited the studio to design the tables. They were so excited that their tea party idea would be realized as a unique part of the wedding reception. And, Brian Anthony Photography captured it all!

Radiating with jubilance, Paula and Sebastian were married in a way that reflected themselves and their devotion to each other. Beautifully done, and congratulations!

Southern Vintage Table Events – A Perfect Day for a Wedding

A new venue is in town and we’ve got the scoop! We were introduced to Union Grove Farm through our clients, Jamie and Shawn, whose gorgeous wedding embraced this outdoor bonanza of beauty and that’s not all! Set in this lovely landscape, the spacious inside of the barn is filled with natural light. Thanks to these photos by Cirque91, you’ll see what we mean!

The windows, hanging lights, and plank flooring created an alluring atmosphere for Jamie and Shawn’s wedding reception. Southern Vintage Table provided table settings that included a mix of vintage blue and clear goblets, vintage white stoneware plates, and vintage stainless flatware. We also furnished an assortment of clear bottles and vintage vases for their centerpieces. With the blue cloths and pink napkins, these sweet tables were ready for their family and friends.

Thanks, Jamie and Shawn, along with Hayley and Hannah of An Event to Remember for giving us the opportunity to be a part of this joyful wedding day. Wishing you everything happy and wonderful!

Shelly was AMAZING to work with! I set up a meeting where she helped guide me in various options for tabletop items and then let me play around to find the perfect combination. I loved that I was able to use vintage mismatched plates, silverware, and beautiful blue and clear glass goblets for my wedding. It was stunning! I also loved that I could support a small local business. Would 10/10 highly recommend!

Flowers from Fernrock Farm

Southern Vintage Table Events – Floral Fiesta for Farmers, Florists, & Friends

“Join us for an informal poolside gathering to celebrate the end of summer with snacks, local cider from Botanist and Barrel, and other libations. Here’s a chance to make some new connections within our amazing flower community. Hope you can stop by!”

It’s not every day you are given a invitation to meet like-minded folks, find inspiration, get advice, and build your business connections. And, with the offer of food and libations, it’s a golden opportunity!

Carrie, owner of Fernrock Farm, hosted this gathering and asked Southern Vintage Table to help with the tablescape, serving dishes, and glassware. With yellows, browns, and teals as the core color schema, we choose vintage tablecloths, wood serving pieces, and vintage retro plates. Individual vintage compotes and bowls were filled with fruit salad as well as hummus and chips. Once the dishes were filled with cheese, crackers, sandwiches, cookies, and nuts, the floral fiesta began!

We all had a fantastic time at the floral fiesta for farmers, florists, and friends, snacking on delicious treats and chatting about our businesses, ourselves, and our future collaborations. Thanks, Carrie, for bringing us all together for a fun evening!

I really enjoyed meeting everyone and the chance to have a much needed night out with kindred spirits! 
I left inspired and re-invigorated to take my own business to the next level and source more supplies and services locally among fellow vendors.

News – Oh, the Places They’ve Been

Five weddings, five new-to-us venues, 850 total miles, 533 total guests, and 2048 individual pieces – this week’s journey for our vintage beauties has been quite a story. For us, it has been both a challenge and a privilege to fulfill our clients’ requests for their wedding day with the range of our vintage items in our inventory.

Upon reflection, we realized this weekend was a big deal for Southern Vintage Table, and although we still have lots to do on the backend, we feel quite accomplished.

For weeks we planned for this group of weddings, made sure we had the right crates and racks to transport the number of dishes, coordinated delivery and pickup dates/times, and finalized orders. The dishwasher hummed for days as dishes were freshly cleaned, crates labeled and packed, and set aside by client.

You may wonder, what were those 2048 items we sent out? Here’s the count!

  • 800 salad/dessert/saucer plates
  • 325 colored water goblets (amber, light green, light teal, and blue)
  • 230 dinner plates
  • 225 gold flatware pieces
  • 70 teacups
  • 64 berry bowls
  • 50 wine goblets
  • 60 napkins
  • 40 clear tumblers
  • 40 clear coupe goblets
  • 40 brass candleholders
  • 30 brass napkin holders
  • 21 assorted decor pieces
  • 9 teapots
  • 8 books and tins
  • 5 decanters
  • 4 sugar & creamers
  • 4 tiered stands
  • 2 easels and 2 frames

One more return tomorrow/today and everything will be back at the studio. Cleaning, drying, and restocking are well underway while we also prepare for the upcoming week’s event – an annual tea party. Selecting teacups, saucers, plates, and pots is always a treat for us!

This long anticipated week is over and we feel a bit weary, but also invigorated by the folks we met along the way, the sights we enjoyed, and the side trips to a few thrift stores. 🙂 After delivering to The Meadows on Thursday, we sat for a spell and captured this beautiful, serene view.

Southern Vintage Table Events – Happy Blues at the Carolina Inn

Last week’s blog showcased Katherine and Colby’s wedding at the Parlour at Mann’s Chapel where the couple used our vintage light blue goblets. They looked so lovely on their tables!

This week we have photos, courtesy of Alaina Ronquillo Photography, from Madeline and Josh’s wedding held at The Carolina Inn. On their reception tables were our vintage blue and white plates in alternating mostly blues and mostly whites. We loved how it all came together, thanks to the careful planning and guidance of Ashley Murray, owner of Charming Carolina Events and Weddings. Bravo!

Congrats, Madeline and Josh, and thanks for including us in your happy Carolina Blue wedding!

Vintage Blue Goblets on Reception Table

Southern Vintage Table Events – A Splendid September Day for a Wedding

We distinctly recall this day – it was one of our first glorious September days in North Carolina and it was Katherine and Colby’s wedding day. After several reschedules in 2020 through 2021 due to health safety concerns, outdoor gatherings started opening up. And, if we might speculate, this absolutely perfect day was meant to be for them and their guests.

Our contributions to their tables were our beautiful light blue vintage goblets which adorned each place setting. The color of the sky and sea, light blue signifies trust, loyalty, and sincerety and they sparkle with joy down the tables. As you can see in the details shot below, we also provided our vintage blue and white dessert plates.

Held at the amazing historic Parlour at Manns Chapel with their lush landscape of flowers and greenery, Radian Photography‘s images capture their story. We mostlyhave included those that feature our pieces, but trust us, the gallery is as glorious as the day.

A beautiful day, venue, and couple. Thank you, Katherine and Colby, for allowing us to be a part of this long-overdue celebration!

I wanted to share these images with you from my bridal shower.
Thanks to you, it was beyond beautiful!!
– Dana

Yes, indeed, pouring tea, eating a medley of sweet and savory, and chatting with best friends before your wedding day has to be on the list of meaningful ways to celebrate your upcoming nuptials. These photos come courtesy of Dana, the bride-to-be, who was so pleased when she arrived at her mother’s home. Her mother, Andrea, knew Dana would love this experience so she visited the studio to pull together these lovely, vintage tea party pieces.

Dana, we think it’s beautiful, too! Bravo, Andrea!

See ya’ll this weekend when we deliver and set your beautiful vintage reception tables. Sooooo looking forward to it!
