Behold this cheery, natural tablescape! Designed by Maria of KaraMia Events and photographed by Alexandrea of Copper Key Photo, this tablescape instantly evokes joy and delight with the bright yellow accents, the vintage dusky goblets, blue & white plates, and candleholders.
Inspired by Limencello, the Italian lemon liqueur, Maria pulled together vintage pieces from Southern Vintage Table and added the furniture, chargers, linens, and flatware from DeeJay’s. Those gorgeous lemony bouquets are the work of talented Lisa of Fireside Farm. All of this took place at the Bill Scott Pavilion in Raleigh.
The dessert station was pretty spectacular! Our vintage yellow and blue vases are peerrrfect and that lemon cake by Taylor Street Sweets looks incredibly yummy. Ohhhh, wish we could have a slice right now!
Thank you, Maria, the Green Wedding Guild, and all of the “green” vendors for another successful challenge! Looking forward to the next one and we just may have to enter ourselves!
Folks contact us with many different requests – sometimes we set the entire table with our vintage tableware; other times it may be one particular vintage look. In this case, we provided vintage Independence Hall dinner plates for wedding guests at the gorgeous Duke Mansion in Charlotte. It was meant to be – they had 35 guests and we had 35 blue and white plates in the same pattern.
As you can see in the fabulous floral arrangements by Gather Flower Studio , the other primary color was orange. We love these two together! They needed a few pops of this vibrant color so planner Kelley Kohler of Haviland Events asked us to include a few decor pieces such as this vintage tin and clock.
Our delivery/pickup was actually a meetup in High Point so we didn’t get to see this historic venue in person, but these photos by Phylicia Willis Photography help us envision how beautiful the wedding was. Such a classic! Congratulations, Britt and Steve!

Two for one is always nice, right? Here’s what made our week – first, we provided rentals for a beautiful shot at Carolina Grove and worked with some of our favorite vendor friends in January; and second, the shoot was published this week in Wedding Chicks – “How to Incorporate Fine China Into Your Chic Microwedding”.
When Keys Events and Tierney Riggs Photography shared their design for this shoot at Carolina Grove, we knew instantly we wanted to be involved. Our vintage blue and white collection has grown over the last few years and we were excited that they wanted to include not only vintage place settings, but also decor pieces, including our two umbrella stands. With beautiful florals from The Foraged South, they certainly made a statement!
Our vintage china, goblets, silver-plate flatware, and napkins adorn each table as well as the runner and vintage glass candle holders. The sweet vignette of vintage suitcases in front of the sweetheart table has to be our favorite design element!
Thanks to all the folks who worked on this beautiful styled shoot!

Our first wedding this year was for Nina and Mac at The Parlour at Mann’s Chapel. For their intimate wedding with their family and close friends, this vintage venue was ideal. Their tables were set with our vintage blue and white dinner plates and dusky blue goblets. Of course, we love love love this classic look!
These sneak peek photos by Timmester Photography captured their beautiful, fun-filled wedding day. We can’t wait to see more!
What a lovely review from Nina on WeddingWire! Thank you so much!
We rented assorted vintage blue & white dinner plates and goblets for our spring wedding. They added such a beautiful, elegant touch to the rustic farm tables at our outdoor reception. We received so many compliments from our guests and other vendors!! Shelly was always quick to respond, polite, and overall a lovely person to work with!
Sneak peeks are both exciting and vexing – you love what you see and are left wanting more! Today we are sharing some sneak photos from this styled shoot as photographer, Alaina Ronquillo, finishes what we know will be an amazing collection of images.
Planner Jessica Alexander styled something really wonderful with the blending of two happy, spring colors – sunny yellow and romantic pink. The result is fresh, colorful, and stylish, and we are loving it!
We’ve come to the end, dear readers – the final styled shoot of 2020, which was held at the gorgeous venue, The Bradford. Designed and styled by Bess and Beau, the blue and yellow theme was fresh and elegant with lots of wonderful details. Kaitlyn Blake Photography‘s photo gallery was chock-full of beautiful photos of the entire shoot, which included multiple models, lovely details, cakes, and even a vintage get-away car. To see the entire cast, see the vendor list at the end of the blog.
We, however, focused on the shots of the tables, which included our vintage tableware and stunning florals by Quiet Blooms Florals. The inclusion of grapes, grape vines, and pears in the centerpiece was a delightful surprise!
Notice the different elements in the two photos – on the left, the light blue velvet (oh my!) was draped under the plate with a clear goblet. On the right, you see a blue goblet added and the napkin tied in a knot. Little details such as these are part of the fun in designing a tablescape. Thank you, Bess and Beau, for using our vintage pieces in the table design.
With weddings and events slowly coming back, we will happily help with more styled shoots. Two open houses have been completed and so far 3 styled shoots are on the calendar, so our vintage inventory is being enjoyed by others. Makes us smile!

Valentine’s Date at home!! My boyfriend partnered with SVT to plan a Valentine’s themed date. We have not gone out much due to COVID and this was just so fun, memorable, and classy. It felt like he took me out to a nice restaurant but we were in the dining room! The candles, pink glasses, napkin rings, and sweet postcards all tied together to create a beautiful table….a table we lingered at and talked for about an hour together! I would definitely love to use SVT in the future!

Because work schedules didn’t work for next weekend, Mark and Kaitlyn scheduled their Valentines’ celebration early. As our first clients, we excitedly put together the items for a safe, easy pickup from the bench at the front of our studio. Mark ordered takeout BBQ and with the colorful vintage tableware, they were set for a romantic, intimate meal at home. We asked if someone could take a few photos for us to share, and here they are!
You still have time for this offer! Order form below.
Today’s post, our final feature from the Green Guild’s Wedding Challenge at Windy Hill Farm, is fittingly a “green” vintage green tablescape. There are so many details we adore – the fig cardholder, the greenery with cut figs, the vintage green peg votives, and the vintage plates.
Here’s how Addie describes the day:
“Addie Thompson of Dogwood Gatherings and Events (Dogwood) put together a wedding styled photoshoot as part of a challenge event for the Green Wedding Guild (GWG) on Tuesday, September 29, 2020 at Windy Hill Farms in Cedar Grove, North Carolina. Photography services were provided by Kevin Seifert of RTP.Studio, which is a member of the the GWG. Dogwood created a sustainable, environmental friendly tabletop setting using vintage repurposed glassware and sustainable practices in floral arrangements. The venue has fig trees on-site so Dogwood added figs to the decor. Windy Hill Farms is also a member of the GWG. As a venue, Windy Hill Farms has on-site composting available, solar powered amenities, low-water restroom facilities, partners with local, sustainably minded vendors, maintains permeable surfaces (i.e. no paved surfaces), and both the farm & venue are in conservation (protected from future development).”
“Other contributors to the styled photoshoot were Shannon Andrews, permanent cosmetics and make-up artistry; White of Raleigh, bridal shop/gown/dress; SoCharm Designs, earrings/jewelry; and Southern Vintage Table, plates, decor, and flatware. Dogwood is a “less is more” design company. Special thanks to our model couple Shana and Anton!”
On a final note, we absolutely loved this challenge! Working with a cadre of extremely dedicated Green Wedding Guild members was inspiring, uplifting, and fun. More Guild events are coming up this year and we’ll be there!
No doubt, the scrumptious and artfully arranged food provided by Sage and Swift Catering takes center stage on this buffet line but we think our vintage & handcrafted items add a little something to their beautiful display – the pair of vintage brass candleholders, brass goblets with succulents, and the stacked wooden boxes holding the plated desserts.
At the upstairs bar at Windy Hill Farms, Hayley sprinkled some of our vintage brass decor to complete the boho theme. After seeing all of these beautiful photos by Rose Trail Images, we are both hungry and thirsty! 🙂
Thanks again, Hayley and Rose Trail Photography, for the design and lovely images! Look for the final entry from the Green Guild Challenge coming up.
