Southern Vintage Table Events – Styled Shoot at The White House on Washington

A “new” historic venue in Mebane, NC has recently opened its doors after an extensive renovation by its new owners, Celine and Aubrey Meador. Now known as the The White House on Washington, this beautiful home was once the home of the owners of the renowned White Furniture, a company that made fine furniture in downtown Mebane starting in the 1890s until the 1990s. Although White Furniture is no longer in business, this factory building, listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, has a new purpose as chic industrial apartments called The Lofts of White Furniture. Two wonderful legacies were left by the sons of Stephen White, a co-founder of the town itself!

These photos, courtesy of Stephanie Batten Photography, were taken at the very first shoot of The White House on Washington. We love how she styled our vintage wares on the tables and look forward to our first celebration as a vendor!

Learn more about this stately historic venue at this Southern Bride and Groom’s feature story. Also, read about the White Furniture Company on NCPedia and more about Celine and Aubrey Meador’s Mebane Historical Museum’s Preservation Award in the October 23rd edition of the Mebane Enterprise.

Southern Vintage Table Event – Meet the Grandbaby !

Pink Roses

Large or small, a gathering of friends and family is always memorable. This event was especially so because the family’s first grandchild was coming to visit her grandparents! Of course, folks wanted to meet this sweet little girl so grandmother Sherry and aunt Ashley hosted a ‘greet and meet’ Evie party. With vintage tiered and cake stands filled with scrumptious desserts, tea cups ready for coffee, and vases filled with flowers, the hosts were ready to greet their guests!

And, here she is! Cutie-pie Evie perched on her grandmother’s lap. Notice that her pink outfit matches her grandmother’s hair! How cool is that?

If we were to select one wedding style that we love the most, it would have to be bohemian chic. With the inspiration of nature and relaxed atmosphere, boho chic sparks romantic vibes in every direction! These photos by Mary Kaitlin Photography of Emily and Abraham’s wedding at the Little Herb House beautifully capture the essence of this timeless style.

This mod, romantic wedding had all the ingredients that melded so well together – Emily’s flowing wedding gown, Abraham’s classic suit, the soft earthy tones of the bridesmaids’ dresses, the macrame altar hanging, and our vintage place settings with amber goblets on wood farm tables. Add to that the tranquil setting of the Little Herb House‘s converted horse barn and beautiful gardens, and the result is perfection!

Love is the most important thing in the world but baseball is pretty good – Yogi Berra

It was a beautiful June day – perfect for the artistic teacher and outdoorsy soon-to-be physical therapist to begin to their lives together as a married couple. College sweethearts, Jessica and Stephen, pledged their love for each other at the Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Church with friends and family in attendance, then we all skipped over to the Rickhouse to celebrate with this sweet couple.

This love-filled day was captured by Photography by Bellagala and we are so pleased to share their photos with you. As a friend of the family, we happily set the reception tables and arranged the vintage dessert stands for donuts, the couple’s favorite treat, before joining in the festivities.

Jessica and future sister-in-law, Melanie, designed these lovely, colorful tables. Notice the three vintage table designs – one with gold embellished plates and brown goblets, a second with blue & white plates and amber goblets, and the third with white stoneware and green goblets. With the beautiful floral centerpieces by Color Fields Farm and our brass candleholders topped with clear votives, the tables sparkled!

Southern Vintage Table Event – Jessica’s Bridal Luncheon at The King’s Daughters Inn

Photo by September Photography

“Welcome to Jessica’s bridal luncheon!  We are delighted to have each of you here to celebrate with us today! Tomorrow we will gather at TAPC to celebrate the love of Jessica & Stephen, but today, TODAY, during this luncheon, we celebrate the special relationships between the important women in our lives – grandmothers, mothers, daughters, granddaughters, sisters, nieces, great nieces, and of course girlfriends.  These relationships add joy, richness, laughter, and fun to our lives, and we so fortunate to have this time and place to celebrate.”  

With this beautiful, heartfelt opening from Mary, Jessica’s soon-to-be mother-in-law, the luncheon was ready to enjoy. After months of planning, the Yayas were so excited to be a part of this tradition, honoring the bride-to-be on the eve of her wedding.

The design included an array of Southern Vintage Table’s vintage dishes and pieces. The vintage blue and white china accented with fresh gorgeous flowers from Fernrock Farm created the perfect ambience for this wonderful affair!  Presented on our vintage serving pieces, Durham Catering’s‘ delicious luncheon treats and Jami’s yummy lime tarts looked so delish. And, we are thrilled that Miguel of September Photos Photography captured all of this beauty!

News – Time for a Brief Blog Hiatus!

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

The hot, humid, summer weather of beautiful NC has settled in and, with the first of July arriving tomorrow, we’ll be taking this month off from our weekly blog. The opening to this year has been incredibly busy for Southern Vintage Table and during July we’ll be resting, reorganizing our new space a bit, but continuing with our rental services.

So far this year we have shared our vintage wares with 29 clients for their showers, luncheons, birthday parties, corporate celebrations, styled shoots, tea parties, and, of course, wedding receptions. (Photos by Ana Teresa Gailzes, Krista Piper, Kelley Deal, September Photos, Casie Weathers, Magnolia Photography, Stephanie Batten. )

We’re looking forward to the second half of 2019 and the many occasions our vintage treasures will be enjoyed! See you in August!

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!
