Southern Vintage Table Events – Timeless Blue and White for Kelsey and Ben

When Kelsey and Ben’s wedding day arrived, it was raining. The Carriage House has an awesome open barn but much of the festivities were to be held outside, including the ceremony. When we finished setting the tables with our vintage blue and white plates, blue goblets, and silver-plate flatware, it was still raining and arrangements were being made to move everything inside.

Of course, after this decision was made, the sky opened up just in time.

The tables looked fabulous, but the dessert and coffee tables were showstoppers! The cake table, covered with the bride’s grandmother’s lace overlay, presents these beautiful cakes that were made by the bride’s aunt. Placed on our cake stands, don’t they look delicious?

Congratulations, Kelsey and Ben, and best wishes! Everything turned out wonderfully and we always thought a rainy wedding day will create lasting memories. But, it also means good luck in your marriage.

“…a knot that becomes wet is extremely hard to untie – therefore, when you “tie the knot” on a rainy day, your marriage is supposedly just as hard to unravel!” How terrific is that!

Southern Vintage Table Events – A Carolina Blue Graduation Celebration

It was a big day for Leah! Graduating from UNC with her Master’s Degree and hosting a family celebration at The Honeysuckle Tea House in Chapel Hill were two memory-filled occasions.

Honoring her alma mater, the table settings were styled with light blue vintage china and goblets. Their runner looks fabulous under our vintage milk glass vases filled with blue hydrangenas, flanked by our vintage votive holders. We were so excited to have our vintage milk glass salad plates make their debut, coordinately beautifully with the vases.

Bravo, Leah and family! A UNC-CH master’s degree is an achievement worthy of celebrating over and over! Thank you for sharing your photos and, of course, for using our services.

Southern Vintage Table Events – A Splendid Spring Wedding

Rachel and David’s happy spring wedding day at The Cornealius Properties  was perfect! From the chapel, ceremony, reception tables, lush florals by Busy Bee Florist, and beautiful couple, this celebration was simply exquisite. Dakota Hersey Photography impeccably captured this memorable day and we are captivated by her talent!

This beautiful, sweet couple visited our studio and selected dishes from our vintage floral collection. They mentioned that their floral arrangements would work well with the china as well as our vintage spring hued goblets. Lastly, they chose vintage silver-plated flatware to continue their elegant theme. Little did we know the full meaning of their vision and we are truly smitten.

Southern Vintage Table Events – Hollywood Golden Age Wedding

Let’s go back to the 1930s, to the time when “talkies” replaced silent film and Hollywood produced classic movies such as King Kong, The Wizard of Oz, and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Glamorous stars like Katharine Hepburn, Joan Crawford, Vivien Leigh, and Bette Davis, along with James Stewart, Cary Grant, and Clark Gable were household names.

This grand, glitzy time is known as the Golden Era of Hollywood and a fitting theme for Heather and Preston’s wedding. We are beyond thrilled to share photos of this beautiful bash by the amazingly talented Kasey Powell .

As a part of this industry in LA, this couple naturally chose something dear to them as they begin to make their mark in film and comedy. Despite the long distance between us, we worked together on the design of the tables and use of our special decor, such as the vintage video camera, microscope, easels, and blackboard frames.

The final result was a spectacularly eclectic and voguish wedding and reception. Our contributions to this glamorous affair included the vintage place settings, vases and bottles, framed table numbers, and candleholders. One of our favorite inclusions was our classic vintage champagne coupe. So chic!

These two are “over the moon” in love and we adore their specially designed backdrop crafted by Preston himself!

Goodness gracious! What an extraordinary wedding and we are grateful to have been included in your production. Best wishes you two! We’ll be watching for your talent to shine!

“The moonlight illuminates the path ahead, guiding us towards our dreams and aspirations.”

Shelly was an absolute dream to work with. So flexible, she has such a large inventory, and her prices are incredibly fair! We were able to do everything remotely as we live out of state and even with last-minute changes she was very accommodating. I can’t recommend her enough! We drove from 3 hours away just to use her gorgeous vintage glassware and it really made our tables sparkle and shine. Thank you!!! – Heather

Vintage Goblets on Reception Table

Southern Vintage Table Events – A Festive December Wedding

With all the holiday trimmings, Meleah and Devan’s vintage boho wedding was totally glam – big boho centerpieces, hanging wreaths, pine colored runners, and lots and lots of candles. And, the first kiss under the mistletoe? What a memorable moment captured by Assorted Poppies Photography!

The wedding reception tables included place settings with our vintage stoneware plates, colored goblets, and stainless flatware. The table decor, provided by the clients, brilliantly merged the boho and holiday themes.

We join these two cuties in wishing you a beautiful life together! Wendy and Michael, thank you for your kind words! Working with your family was totally delightful!

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! Thank you Vintage Table for being a part of our daughters special day and for making it possible for her to have the wedding of her dreams! Your tableware is stunning to say the least and your services are over the top! I plan to recommend Vintage Table to everyone I know doing an event!

Wendi, mother

Vintage Valentine's Card

Southern Vintage Table Events – A Valentine’s Date with The Poetry Fox

The Poetry Fox is typing a custom poem on his vintage typewriter for this lucky person!

Yes, a wonderful way to celebrate Valentine’s Day is to enjoy a lovely dinner, eat chocolate, or be presented with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, right? But, how about a personal poem written just for you by the Poetry Fox? That was just one of the activities Alex from Longfellow had planned for their clients and she needed our help staging the table for him. What a super fun assignment!

Vintage Staged Table

Alex came looking for romantic, vintage pieces to display on the long table where The Poetry Fox would compose his poetry. As I was working on another project, Alex browsed the decor room and made her list – suitcases, bottles, a radio, a clock, books and a typewriter. Tucked in a drawer, we showed her some of our vintage valentine’s post cards and the roses stand which she loved! With two vintage red tins, she was set.

Thanks, Alex, for choosing our vintage decor for this super cool offering for your clients. We truly enjoyed meeting you and loved this creative gift for your clients! (Thanks for sending us photos, too!)

Southern Vintage Table – A Dreamy Blue Wedding

The classic combination of blue and white was featured in Claire and Ethan’s gorgeous wedding at the historic Merrimon Wynne venue in downtown Raleigh. There’s so much to love about their wedding day – the splendid weather, the stunning ceremony setup, the lush tablescape on the reception tables, and, of course, the blissful couple. These artful photos, courtesy of @mackensiemkern show us how dreamy it all was!

For their wedding, Southern Vintage Table provided the large floral vessels that first greeted guests at ceremony side and then were donned in front of the bride and groom’s seats. Filled with exquisite florals from Hathaway Floral Designs, they were meant to be seen wherever the guests were.

Since this was a plated reception, our vintage blue and white plates were presented to guests with their delicious meal prepared by AC Events. As seen below, those vintage salad plates offer a perfect hint of blue and white at each place setting.

Bravo, Claire and Ethan! This memory-filled day was the perfect beginning to your life together. May your lives be filled with joy, love, and lots of adventures!

Vintage Reception Tables with Blue Goblets

Southern Vintage Table Events – Pretty in Vintage Pink and Blue

The two sweetest colors – pink and blue – were woven throughout the wedding celebration of Madison and David. With our vintage goblets and plates along with American Party Rentals‘ napkins, linens, and flatware, the final table settings were graceful and elegant.

Preparation for the tables actually began in our studio with Madison and her friend. Vintage plate by vintage plate, vintage goblet by vintage goblet, and table by table, the pieces were carefully packed in our crates. The result was that the planning team of Hayley and Hannah set the tables exactly as Meredith wished. A+ work indeed!

What a pretty cake on our vintage cake stand!

Vintage Amber Goblets on Reception Tables

Southern Vintage Table Events – Vintage, Vibrant, and Gleaming Goblets

If you were to ask us what is our most requested item from our vast vintage collections, we’d have to say our vintage colored goblets. Sparkling on the reception tables, they add elegance, pizzazz, and splendor.

Allyson and Davis agreed – their reception tables featured our vibrant vintage amber goblets and they gleamed all across the room! After the marriage ceremony at the incredible Cornealius Properties in Goldsboro, these sweethearts and their guests transitioned to the reception hall with tables set with the glow of amber glass. The lovely photos shared here are from Destiny Lee Photography.

What a gorgeous send off for Allyson and Davis! Thank you for using our services and for sharing these photos. Bravo for a beautiful day and best wishes for a wonderful life together!

Tables at Friends of James Beard Benefit

Southern Vintage Table Events – Vintage Tableware Goes to a Friends of James Beard Benefit Dinner

On our post about a month ago, we teased you with photos of vintage gravy boats and green goblets. As promised, we are ready to reveal more about where they went and the mission of a James Beard Foundation dinner.

For foodies and restauranteurs, the James Beard Foundation is synonymous with great food, restaurants, and chefs. According to the Foundation’s website, “The James Beard Foundation is a nonprofit organization with a mission to celebrate, support, and elevate the people behind America’s food culture and champion a standard of good food anchored in talent, equity, and sustainability.”

Akin to the Oscars, they also have yearly awards in many categories, such as Outstanding Restaurateur, Outstanding Chef, Best New Restaurant, Outstanding Pastry Chef, and Outstanding Baker. They also have regional awards and NC is in the Southeast Division. Did you know that North Carolina had 9 nominees for the Best Chef in 2022? Impressive, right? Even more impressive is Chai Pani, a restaurant in Asheville, NC was named the Outstanding Restaurant of 2022 and Ricky Moore, chef of the Saltbox Seafood Joint in Durham, NC was Southeast Regional Best Chef. Wow!

In addition to the yearly awards, the Friends of James Beard Benefit is an opportunity for restaurants and chefs to showcase their culinary talents while raising monies to support the Foundation programs. These occur every month all over the United States.

This is where we come in! Katie Choate invited us to be a part of a benefit family-style dinner hosted by chef Jake Wood, owner of Lawrence BBQ in RTP. Katie and Jake chose vintage china platters and bowls, glass bowls, silver-plated flatware and serving utensils, and a gorgeous punch bowl. Each of these were filled with freshly prepared meats, vegetables, and salads. Below is the announcement for the Holiday Soirée with Lawrence Barbecue.

Step back in time for an intimate, 1960’s-inspired holiday party at Milburnie Fishing Club, hosted by chef Jake Wood of Lawrence Barbecue, named one of Southern Living Magazine’s Best New ‘Cue Joints in the South. For this special dinner, Jake will pay homage to Granny Helen Lawrence’s holiday table with a fabulous family menu. Local favorites N. Sea. Oyster Co., Trophy Brewing, Young Hearts Distillery as well as Napa’s esteemed Reynolds Family Winery will all be featured.
