Southern Vintage Table Event – Styled Shoot at The McAlister-Leftwich House

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

The photos are in from Pipers Photography! This gallery features the styled shoot at The McAlister-Leftwich House in Greensboro. If you recall in a previous post, Styled Shoots with Taylor’d Southern Events, our vintage treasures were featured in a shoot at The Parlour at Manns Chapel as well as one at The McAlister-Leftwich House in the same week. These two classic historical buildings are ideal backdrops for so many lovely photographs.

At The McAlister-Leftwich House, Lauren and Taylor from Taylor’d Southern Events created beautiful place settings with our gold rimmed plates, pink champagne and clear goblets, and silver-plated flatware. Scattered about the venue were some of our vintage decor items, such as brass candleholders and vases as seen in these photos. We appreciate the beauty of Pipers images and think you will, too!

Southern Vintage Table Event – Beauteous Butterfly Styled Shoot at the Museum of Life & Science

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

Hillary of Sincerely Weddings Event Planning had a vision – she wanted to assemble a group of talented vendors for a styled shoot at the Butterfly House at the Museum of Life and Science. This nontraditional venue is ideal for couples who love science and nature, and want a memorable wedding experience for themselves and their guests. As you will see from the marvelous images captured by September Photos , a wedding here can be pretty spectacular!

To prepare for the styled shoot, Hillary came to our studio and selected the vintage tableware for the reception. The vintage blue and white dinnerware with vintage amber goblets always make a statement and her design was impeccable! The bride’s bouquet, styled by Sweets and Stems, as well as the floral touch on the gorgeous cake by Rachel Bailey Cake Artist, incorporated the blue, white, and amber theme. Even the speciality drink served by Barbox carried this theme so deliciously!

Thank you, Hillary, for gathering us together for this stunning styled shoot! We all loved the final results and so did the butterflies!

An October lakeside evening in NC may be the most perfect setting for a wedding celebration. As shown through these divine photos taken by the talented Ashley Steffens, we definitely agree! Ashli and Matt’s beautifully styled vintage boho wedding was held at the Sunset Lake Lodge in Holly Springs guided by the expertise of wedding planner, Emily Katherine Events.  We are so excited to share these with our readers!

We joyfully provided many elements for this vintage boho gala. Vintage dinner plates, jewel-toned goblets, silver-plate flatware, and several of the crocheted overlays. Our charming vintage dresser mirrors framed the gorgeous florals of Springwell Garden.

Southern Vintage Table Event – Casey & Alex’s Classic Southern Wedding

JP Pratt’s photos are in and he captured this most exquisite affair, Casey and Alex’s wedding and reception. We featured a few of our own photos in a previous post, First Look at Casey & Alex’s Elegant Reception, but these are the real deal and they are awesome!

As with most weddings, many different vendors provided wares for this beautiful wedding. Our offerings included vintage mixed and matched silver-plate flatware, pink and clear water goblets, and signs. We also provided a lovely collection of vintage floral dessert plates as well as the vintage-framed table numbers. Don’t you love the handwritten cards of photographer Annie Watts, gifted by another sweet bride? We sure do!

Thank you, Casey and Alex, for inviting us to be a part of this beautiful, joy-filled wedding! We loved it all, down to the smallest detail, and we were delighted to be a Yaya guest. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness, love, and fun!

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

We are always on the hunt for new vintage patterns to add to our collections and we’d like to introduce you to some of our newcomers! Most of them we found at local thrift stores but we also had a few gifted to us. How sweet is that? These new patterns hail from England, Austria, France, Bavaria, and the US.

The patterns above are rich with colors and we love each one of them. From the top left, the makers are Salem China from USA, Royal Bayreuth from Bavaria, Mason’s from England, and Trischenreuth, also from Bavaria.

Now, who doesn’t love vintage patterns with delicate florals? These four beauties are from several different countries. Starting at the top left, we have Knowles China from the US, Union Ceramique from France, Haviland from France, and Karlsbad from Austria.

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rentals NC

These colorful four patterns look so nice together! The two on the right are from England, Johnson Brothers and Royal Dalton. The two on the left are from potteries in the US, Vernon Kilns and Knowles China, both of which are no longer in business.

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

This last set of four are a bit atypical of china patterns with their hues of brown. We love how they look together – add a brown and amber goblet to the table, and you have a terrific look! All of these ironstone patterns are from England – the top two are Mason’s, the bottom left is Johnson Brothers, and the bottom right is Staffordshire.

Mixing and matching china patterns presents a beautiful, interesting table for your guests whether it’s a wedding reception, bridal shower, a holiday meal, or a dinner party.  Give us a call or send an email through our Contact page. We’d love to hear from you!

What’s the secret recipe for a wedding celebration beyond imagination? Start with a magnificent mountain backdrop near a quaint inn, generously add gorgeous florals and greenery, and set lovely vintage china and goblets for each guest. Then gather your twenty dearest friends to be a part o,f the bridal party, and, of course, invite 300 family and guests to celebrate with you.! Finally, add a talented photographer, aka Katy Cook Photography, to capture all of this perfection!

The most important ingredient for the perfect wedding is the betrothed couple and Jessica and Andrew couldn’t have been more perfectly matched. Their joy and happiness spill out everywhere and we feel so fortunate to share these with you!

We had a difficult time only selecting a few from this much anticipated wedding day. But, you’re in luck because Katy Cook published a sneak peek of the wedding on her blog and you’re going to be mesmerized by her post!

“Shelly was great to work with and I really enjoyed getting to visit her studio to try different colors and patterns for my wedding reception tables. The mix-and-match blue china and glasses were whimsical yet classic and added a nice touch of color to my tables. There were tons of options to choose from! She was flexible with pick up and drop off.”

The rain cleared, clouds broke, and the sunshine arrived just in time for Casey and Alex’s beautiful ceremony! This marvelous wedding was such a treat for us because we were both a vendor and a guest!

Our connection is through Casey’s mother, Jami, who is the beloved “butterflies and rainbows” member of our tribe, the Yayas. We’ve known each other for more than 20 years and have shared many life events together with each other’s families. Casey and Alex’s wedding meant so much for each of us and we all were excited to attend.

An upcoming blog post will show more of the wedding and reception with JP Pratt‘s professional photographs, but today we are sharing a few of our own. Our vintage clear and pink goblets, silver-plate flatware, dessert plates, and table numbers look so pretty in the Carolina Club‘s ballroom. Meristem‘s glorious florals, the elegant black chairs and napkins from American Party Rentals, and CE Rentals‘ tablecloths and chargers created this elegant, glamorous setting.
