News – Two Awards and Infinite Appreciation!

We are thrilled to share that Southern Vintage Table has been recognized by both The Knot and Wedding Wire! These two wedding industry giants that many couples use when researching vendors for their weddings, use clients’ reviews and ratings to determine the winners. Needless to say, we are immensely appreciative of our wonderful clients.

Here are a few of our amazing client reviews that almost make us blush:

Set the tone for our vintage-themed wedding

Shelly at Southern Vintage Table has an incredible selection of china and table decor that will add a special touch to your wedding! We got so many compliments on our mismatched place settings and every guest felt unique. The price is extremely competitive and Shelly lets you check out her entire collection and experiment with colors and styles in person before coming up with a game plan. We’re so thankful we found Southern Vintage Table!

Classy Style, Classier Vendor

Shelly has a beautiful collection of goblets and china to choose from. From our first meeting to view her inventory, to the final plate selection she was a true gem to work with. She allowed us to pick the plates ourselves which was a fun preparation event and gave the table settings a personal touchI highly recommend Southern Vintage for anyone looking to work with a local small business vendor and have a vintage wedding touch.

VIntage Wedding Place Setting

Wonderful Dishware from Shelly!

We rented dinner plates, dessert plates, coffee cups, and water goblets from Shelly for our wedding on October 22,2022. The plates she has available are so unique and beautiful, and my mom, mom’s best friend, and I had so much fun going and picking them all out. I had a very specific vision so Shelly let us come and pick out the plates for each table setting. Every time you go back to the stacks you find a new, beautiful plate to add into the selection! Shelly is really nice, and she handled dropping off, picking up, and cleaning all of the dishware before and after the event. Her selection of vintage plates is amazing and her customer service is as well! I highly recommend Southern Vintage Table for weddings and any other events where you might want an elegant looking table!

(Southern )Vintage Table is very professional, and very friendly to work with. I was very impressed with how they pack their dishes, glass plates and goblets. We chose to pick up and drop off from the store, and everything was packed securely in crates with wheels, so convenient. We were given detailed instructions on how to care for the items we rented. Everything we rented was absolutely beautiful!”

The absolute BEST!! Shelly was such a joy to work with and has the most amazing selection of plates, goblets, silverware, candleholders and decorations. She brought our ‘vintage garden party’ vision to life with her blue and white china selection! Can’t recommend Southern Vintage Table enough.

Highly recommend! 

We could not have had a better experience working with Southern Vintage Table for our spring wedding! Visiting Shelly’s studio to pick out our rentals was one of my favorite parts of our wedding planning process. She has a huge collection of gorgeous inventory, and she was such an excellent resource in helping us come up with the scheme for our table settings. Delivery of the rentals was seamless, and not only did our tables look stunning, but the vintage items added character to the (brand new) venue. Our only regret is not having used more from her collection!

Beautiful Vintage Table Rentals!

Choosing Southern Vintage Table for our wedding rentals was one of the best decisions we made planning our wedding! Shelly was wonderful to work with and handled all of the coordination for drop off and pick up with our venue so that we didn’t have to worry about a thing. We rented glassware, plates, and flatware and loved how beautiful and unique each piece was. The amber goblets especially were a favorite that helped bring so much warmth to our table settings. Thank you Southern Vintage Table for a great experience!

News – J’adore La Déco Vintage

The floor in the decor room has been cleared! All the boxes and crates have been unpacked and our vintage items are finding their new spot. These shutters have now become our hanging station for anything with a handle. The vintage planters and tins are coexisting on shelves in the hallway in the back.

Are we finished? Not quite – our blackboard signs and easels need their own spot, the linen room tidied up, and the design of the foyer finalized. One thing for sure – we are loving the flow of the space and being part of the Boone Square community!

News – Vintage Decor Now On Display

May brings weddings and we are busy with rental orders! This coming weekend our vintage wares are headed to 5 events in 4 different towns – Charlotte, Hillsborough, Mebane, and two in Goldsboro. Thank goodness all but one client is picking up from our new studio space and we are getting everything ready, while continuing our unpacking.

Three vignettes are all decked out with our vintage decor, thanks to Janis and her design skills. The blue/white and milk glass are on on shelves in the decor room. Many crates had to get unpacked and more room is opening up!

The next two displays are in foyer, which is now sporting a new floor. This first area is in the nook between the foyer and decor room. After battling 🙂 with Janis about wanting this to be the book area, she convinced us to tell a story with our unique vintage pieces. We love how some of our blackboard signs from a variety of past events have made it on the wall and that decor is sprinkled in with the books. After looking at this photo, we see that more books need to be pulled and replaced with more cool vintage doodads. You win this one, Janis!

The third vignette is on the wall between the main and linen room. Janis pulled all of these pieces together and the final result is awesome! We both agreed that our petite vintage artwork will look sweet flanked on the sides of this shelf.

Our goals this week are to finish the foyer and add a few shelves to the decor room wall, but our first priority is to get everything ready for our clients’ events and celebrations. Thanks for checking in!

News – We Are Almost There!

The main room of Southern Vintage Table is almost finished! Practically all of the dishes are on the shelves, the setting tables are in place, and what remains are a few special touches on the walls. The final design has yet to be finalized but we have several ideas.

Take a look at the progress we made in the decor room! Vintage brass, glass, silver, and wooden candleholders have found their new spot along with most of the wooden pieces and the silver trays. A plan is in place for organizing the rest of these as well as our vintage blue and white decor and milk glass.

Here’s what remains to be organized and shelved, except for a “few things” left in a storage unit. At least now there will be room on the floor for us to be able to sort those boxes. One more week of our studio updates remains! Stay tuned…

News – Vintage Glass Gorgeousness

All of the boxes in the main room have been unpacked! Yay! These beautiful pieces of vintage glassware were in some of the final crates and we love this colorful display in the middle of the room. Also unpacked and on the shelves are the vintage salad and dessert plates and cake stands. The styling tables will be moved in this week and we’ll be ready for our first set of clients.

Progress was made in the decor room, too. With help from Janis, we moved the tables and set up shelves to be filled with our vintage milk glass, candleholders, blue and white decor, and wooden items. Can’t wait to get this room all set up!

Vintage Teacups on Shelves

News – More Space in our New Space!

It’s the end of week 3 at our new location at Boone Center and floor space is finally opening up! With a plan in place, our vintage plates are getting sorted and stacked on the shelves. Teacups have been matched with their saucers, extra saucers packed in bins, and the last of the goblets unpacked.

In the second main room, the wall of shelving is almost complete, extra crates placed on top, and suitcases displayed. Yep, the floor is clearing up here, too!

Our goals this week include unpacking the rest of containers and moving the tables and chairs into the main room. We also need to clear out the foyer so the floors can be redone. Fingers crossed because we have booked over 10 events May!

Shelves at Southern Vintage Table

News – Shelves are Filling Up!

It’s now the end of week 2 at our new space at Boone Square. Aisles are opening up, boxes and paper recycled, and plastic crates given away. Our focus has turned to the vintage plate collections. Making decisions regarding a natural flow has been a challenge and we have already changed the design plan several times. Fingers crossed that we have enough shelves for our extensive inventory!

With Priscilla’s help, the middle room has started to take shape. Together we rearranged the shelves under the countertop, moved the tables from the wall to the center, and cleared a space for a set of shelves to be installed. When they are up, our vintage decor room can finally be organized.

Looking through the hallway window, we are feeling quite accomplished. The new Southern Vintage Table studio is shaping up! Can’t wait to see through this window next week when all of those crates are gone and replaced with these two tables.

Shelves of Vintage Goblets

News – Out and In

Yep, we are out of our previous studio space at the Colonial Business Center and now in our new digs at Suite 14 in the Boone Square. The space is larger, freshly painted, and now filled with boxes and crates packed with our vintage goblets, plates, linens, flatware, and decor.

Our first task was to fill the glassware shelves. After stringing lights, hunting for the crates that contained the goblets, and placing them on the shelves, the vintage glassware collection began to emerge. Here’s our progress after the last two days.

Next, we’ll decide where the vintage plate collections will land, find the crates, and unpack them. Fingers crossed we have enough shelves for the hundreds of dinner, salad, and dessert dishes. We do plan to count them all when we are finished, a long overdue task.

Shout out to the positive, hardworking, supportive teamwork of Dustin, JJ, Mark, and Antonio of Wayforth for doing such an incredible job moving our delicate inventory. They were awesome along with dear friend, Priscilla. We couldn’t have done this without all of you!

Lastly, many thanks to Jay, Sam, and Dink for getting everything ready for us at Suite 14. We appreciate you, too!

The Captain is waiting patiently for her new home to be ready!
