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!

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!

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.
The Green Guild Challenge at Windy Hill Farm is the gift that keeps on giving for SVT. We have loved seeing and sharing the amazing table designs from the talented wedding planners from the Guild. Today’s post features a look that we adore – mixed and matched napkins, vintage metal containers filled with succulents, and vintage yellow goblets. (Did you know that yellow is one of Pantone’s colors for 2021?)
Here’s another amazing sweetheart and guest table designed by An Event to Remember and photographed by Rose Trail Images. We believe this table setting would bring lots of smiles and conversations from your guests!
When Haley came by to select items from our studio, she asked if there was anything we’d like featured in the shoot. We asked her if she could style the table around our mixed/matched napkin collection. We couldn’t be any more happier with her design!
Thanks again to the vendors of the Guild, especially Emily of Emily Katherine Events and Maria of KaraMia Events, for organizing this terrific event. We hear there will be more challenges coming up next year! Yay!!
We are sharing today a vintage pink and blue tablescape designed by Hayley Singletary of An Event to Remember, photographed by the amazing Audrey of Rose Trail Images. Our vintage blue and white dinner plates, pink salad plates, goblets, vases, and candleholders adorn this table under the trees. Crafted by Hayley, the florals are stunning and add so much color to this lovely tablescape.
We are now switching focus to our favorite, the dessert table. The first thing you notice is THE cake baked by Cupcakes D’Amour. What a beautiful display next to the blueberry bushes at Windy Hill!
Kudos to Haley for a spectacular dinner and dessert table design, and let us not forget to mention that she also arranged all the florals. Talent abounds here! We loved everything about this shoot (except perhaps for our leaning tiered stand – oops!)
We trust everyone celebrated Thanksgiving with gratitude, kindness, and optimism! Now onward to more winter holiday festivities while we continue to keep each other safe and healthy.
Today’s post shares images from a styled shoot at the Bill Scott Pavilion in Raleigh. This nature -filled venue inspired Primrose + Lily‘s design and Alicia Hite Photography snapped beautiful images. This venue is open and airy, with an updated shelter, a stately stone fireplace and mantle, and a gorgeous view of a tree-lined lake.
The incredible florals were created by Event Flouret. We love how fall berries and colored leaves embellished the flowers and greenery. Our vintage tableware and decor, including plates, flatware, glassware, candleholders, and peg votives, look splendid amongst these natural elements.
As we happily browsed through the photo gallery, we noticed that Primrose + Lily played with several different designs. Notice how the napkin presentation and place card vary in each of the place settings below. With so many options, how does one choose?
Lily + Primrose also explored different centerpiece arrangements. There’s a classic floral centerpiece, a vintage candelabra with candles, and the same candelabra with vintage peg votives. Since different venues have their own requirements regarding an open flame, these options are great to have.
Well done, Primrose + Lily! The styling variations showcased your talents beautifully. We look forward to our next collaboration!
Oh me oh my – this gallery of wondrous images are going to delight you! Captured by Mylina Russell Photography, Shrimi of Happily Desserted has fully and completely displayed her incredible baking talents. We can personally attest that these treats are even more delicious than they look!
When we were invited by Emily of Emily Katherine Events to provide the cake stands, serving trays, handcrafted boxes, decor, and other items for this styled shoot, we were all in. Two styles were created -a rustic outdoor dessert spread and an elegant indoor display.
As you will see, Shrimi baked, Emily styled, and their joint talents are amazing!

Elegant Dessert Table
Bravo to all of these talented vendors! What a joy to be a part of such a yummy shoot!
As you can see from these glorious photos by Rose Trail Images, Kacye beautifully designed a sweetheart table fashioned on Windy Hill’s wooden spool. This romantic visage, complete with a vintage lace tablecloth, vintage blue & white layered place settings and decor, and a dessert vignette set on our vintage trunk and suitcase, was strategically positioned under a lovely, old tree.
Well done, Kacye! We are so pleased you made your way to Cedar Grove from Maine to participate in this eco-wedding challenge. The final two table designs will be coming soon!
