Vintage Wildflower Stoneware Tablescape

Styled Shoot – The Green Guild Wedding Challenge at Windy Hill

The Green Guild gauntlet was thrown down! Member planners of the Green Wedding Guild were challenged to style a table with sustainability as a key consideration. This friendly competition, brainchild of the Green Wedding Guild directors, Emily of EKEvents and Maria of KaraMia Events was held at Windy Hill Farm in Cedar Grove. Four planners, joined by partner Guild members, excitedly picked up that gauntlet and designed their styles using these guidelines:

Green Guild Challenge Guidelines

~ Flowers must be sourced locally and seasonally, and no floral foam may be used.
~ No “new” items may be purchased for this shoot. Decor may be rented, borrowed, or thrifted.
~ Attire & accessories may be pre-loved, from a rental company, or from a sustainable designer.
~ Food (if used) should be seasonally & locally inspired.
~ Stationery (if used) should contain recycled content, be sourced from sustainably managed forests, or in some other way promote sustainability (eg: seed paper, bamboo paper, etc.)..

Today we share the first of the four styled tables. Planned by Maria of KaraMia Events and captured by Kivus & Camera, this style features natural wood elements, vintage tableware, and fall florals.

Southern Vintage Table shared our vintage lace runner, wildflower stoneware, stainless flatware, and amber goblets along with the wooden candleholders. With American Party Rentals‘ table and chairs and Event Flouret‘s lovely florals, the tablescape beautifully meets all the sustainability guidelines!

We adore this dessert table display with Happily Desserted‘s beautiful cake on our wooden cake stand, Sage & Swift‘s macarons stacked on SVT’s woven and iron tiered stand, and, of course, our vintage microscope. The florals in the vintage tin perched on top of the tiered stand is a delightful touch!

Well done, Maria! We really dig your vintage style and Elyssa’s incredible photos! Thank you for inviting us to help with your entry!

The second styled shoot from the  Burke Manor Inn & Pavilion in Gibsonville is featured today!

Styled Shoot – Four Shoots in One at Burke Manor Inn

It was a busy, busy day at the Burke Manor Inn & Pavilion in Gibsonville. The rain did not deter the enthusiasm for this multi-styled shoot designed by Bess and Beau Event Design because there was so much to see and do!

The shoot was comprised of four different looks with each designer at Bess and Beau showcasing their talents. Today we are so excited to share Norma’s boho look, a style we absolutely love, complete with bold vintage midcentury plates, stainless and bakelite flatware, macrame jars and bottles, and pillow seating at Norma’s handcrafted pallet table. These photos by Naomi Turner Photography might just turn you into a bonafide boho fan, that is, if you aren’t already as enthralled as us!

More to come in the coming weeks, when we share Eva’s vintage lounge and Kerri’s soft and airy tablescape. Thanks to all the vendors who participated and a special shoutout to Bess and Beau for inviting us to share our vintage wares!

Southern Vintage Table Event – A Beautiful Day for a Keys Events Styled Shoot at Merry Hill

Merry Hill Shoot

Finally, a glorious cool September day – perfect to be outdoors at Merry Hill for a Keys Events styled shoot. Originally, our two companies were set to be part of a vendor wedding team on this day, but, alas, things didn’t quite work out. When Monique suggested that we join her team of vendors for a shoot on this day, we immediately said “yes”. How splendid it was!

Styled shoots have always been a great means to meet new vendors and experiment with creative designs; however, they have become the saving grace for many vendors during this pandemic year. We have been able to keep busy, stay focused on our business, and work alongside other vendors in a shared creative enterprise. Typically, SVT might be part of 2-3 styled shoots in a year – so far this year, we have participated in 5 and have 5 more on the calendar. We have met many new folks in the wedding industry and visited several new venues. As the saying goes, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!”

With our masks donned, Monique of Keys Events and Jaclyn of Jaclyn Auletta Photography worked together to get that perfect shot. It’s always inspirational to see our fellow vendors in their element. These two professionals collaboratively hummed along, getting the most out of the setup.

The photos shared today are our own and we’ll be eager to share Jaclyn’s professional images. Armed with a new iPhone 11, we loved focusing on our vintage wares, especially those placed on the bar provided by Oak City Rental Events. And, with Folie a Deux Events’ luscious florals, this vignette on Merry Hill’s front porch was so pretty!

Southern Vintage Table Event – Declaring Golden Love

For some couples, much-anticipated nuptials just can’t wait. Postponing their family and friends’ celebration until next year, Tina and Zack wanted to get married on their original wedding day. With planning help from Stephanie Milosh of Beauty and the Budget Events, the couple stylishly eloped in their back yard with their parents in attendance. Emily of Windsor Grey Photography beautifully documented this lovely day.

Our contribution, albeit small, were the glistering golden vintage goblets on the dinner table. They are fabulously festive and we hope they helped make this elopement even more memorable.

Best wishes to you two! We are certain your friends and family look forward to celebrating with you in 2021!

Southern Vintage Table Events – Blueberry Styled-Shoot, Part 2

Blueberries abound with the continuation of the lovely photos provided by Autumn Harrison Photography from the Blueberry Styled-Shoot organized and designed by EKEvents and Windy Hill Farm. Last week we focused on the vintage dinner table and today it’s everywhere else our vintage wares were used! We will begin with the vintage sweetheart table bedecked with the over-the-top gorgeous florals by Rabbit Foot Floral!

The Sweetheart Table

The Dessert Table

The dessert table may be our favorite element of this shoot because it features our original wooden boxes fashioned from the blades of vintage ceiling fans. We originally envisioned these placed down a dining table and filled with florals; however, putting them on their side and tucking Royal Cheesecakes & Varieties mini cheesecakes inside is even more wonderful. And, let’s not forget to mention that amazing cheesecake wedding cake! (RCV saved those mini cheesecakes for the vendors and they were so so yummy!)

The Bar

Most guests love visiting the bar at a wedding and this one would not disappoint! Upstairs over the barn’s main dining area, this fun space is cozy and bright. With Rabbitfoot Florals and our vintage vases, wooden candleholders, and stoneware pitchers, Emily Ruth Prints.’ sweet bar menu is the perfect final touch. Of course, those cold, colorful drinks prepared by On the Rocks Bartending, would quench anyone’s thirst!

Other Details

Lastly, details are always key to any shoot! The stationery by Emily Ruth Prints is so artistically beautiful, they definitely would be the perfect keepsake. Also, please note the adorable little decoupaged covered rocks. These are ours, made especially for this shoot.

Windy Hill is first a farm, then a venue and, on most rural farms, folks hang their clothes and linens outside on a line to capture the fresh, natural aromas. This final shot of the couple at the clothesline is authentically romantic!


Thank you again, Emily and Chiara, for inviting Southern Vintage Table to your shoot! If you missed last week’s post showcasing the dinner table and meal, here’s the link. Stay safe and eat blueberries!

Southern Vintage Table Events – Blueberry Styled-Shoot, Part 1

It’s blueberry season and this styled-shoot, designed by Emily of EKE Events and Chiara of Windy Hill Farm, was a winner from the very start. Who doesn’t love blueberries – the fresh taste, the gorgeous blue color, and the nutrient-richness – all captured in one little fruit. This inspirational theme had lots of places to be creative and, when you see these glorious photos by Autumn Harrison Photography, you will agree!

Emily and Chiara, along with this talented group of vendors, all brought their blueberry-ness to Windy Hill Farm. Since there’s much to share -the main reception table, dessert table, sweetheart table, bar, & assorted details – we want you to slowly savor all of this loveliness! So, today’s blog is Part 1 and next week we’ll followup with Part 2.

Today, we are focusing on the main reception table. To coordinate with the blueberry theme, the table was set with our vintage blue and white plates, dusky blue goblets, silverware, and napkins. Also on the table are our vintage milk glass candleholders and wooden pedestal candle holders. Finally, did you notice those darling little egg cups that were filled with Windy Hill’s freshly picked blueberries? 🙂

As always, an essential touch to any tablescape is the florals and Rabbit Foot Floral‘s arrangements are magnificently crafted in her vintage vessels. In Post 2, you’ll see more of her floral talents on display. The final table detail is the delightful blueberry menu cards by Emily Ruth Prints. More of her stationery suite will be forthcoming.

This shoot was distinctive in many ways and one was that an actual meal was served, family style! Prepared by Cyril of Harvest’s Table, this meal was both delicious and beautifully presented. One extra treat was that the vendors were invited to enjoy this meal afterwards. (The mac and cheese and cornbread were oh-sooo good and the salad had fresh, edible flowers!)


Thank you, Emily and Chiara, for inviting Southern Vintage Table to your shoot! Next Sunday we’ll feature even more creative spins on blueberries including the sweetheart table, dessert table, bar, and other spaces. Stay safe and eat blueberries!

“Forget who you are and why you’re here-all that foolishness. In the woods the bushes are full of blueberries; go and pick some.”

Southern Vintage Table Events – A Peek of a Vintage Summer Styled-Shoot

Oh my! When we were invited by Colleen Winstead of @lilyandvinephotoco to provide the table settings for this shoot at @cedargroveacres we were elated! Yellow is our favorite color so using our vintage yellow stoneware patterns along with vintage amber goblets was the dream palette for us! Today we are sharing a few of the sneak peek photos Colleen sent us and, based on these beauties, we can’t wait to see more!

The first layer of the table setup were the linens. On the main table, we used a vintage kitchen cloth with yellow flowers. Doesn’t it look amazing? As noted, the table was set with vintage stoneware, amber goblets, stainless flatware, and amber napkins. For decor, our vintage wooden candleholders with amber peg votives and white tapers added a rich, natural touch.

We absolutely loved how the vintage chunky wooden candelabra looked in the center along with the gorgeous florals by @brandisbotanicals . (By the way, we have two of these candelabras and a round one in this style –perfect for a natural, Boho vibe!)

The sweetheart table was truly sweet with the vintage lace overlays, florals, and wooden accents. We adored the small amber vases with feather bouquets!

And, now that cake – what a stunner! This sweet creation by @love_cakenc was amazingly gorgeous and also delicious!

This is all we can share on this post – more lovely photos will be forthcoming! It was delightful spending time at this charming farm venue in Creedmoor and meeting all of the talented folks gathered together for the shoot. Well done, Colleen!
