Our 2019 wedding season opened with the wedding of Kirstin and Glenn at the historic Pittsboro venue, Forest Hall at Chatham Mills. When viewing these romantic photos from Magnolia Photography, we instantly felt the happiness and joy of spring, perfect for their wedding day.

From our collection, the couple chose our vintage goblets in light blue, pink, purple, and turquoise – hues of a gorgeous spring day. The tables light up with their colors and help radiate the anticipation of Kirstin and Glenn’s exciting new life together.

Vintage Feature – Two Weeks In, Two Weeks to Go

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

This week we’ve been emptying shelves, disassembling shelves, moving shelves, re-assembling shelves, and finally, filling shelves. (Thank you, Priscilla!) We love these shelves because they are heavy-duty and easily to re-configure, but they also are very heavy and sometimes difficult to assemble. But, with the help of Aud and Sean, they are in and ready for their vintage inventory!

Looking forward to filling these shelves and sharing our progress next week!

Vintage Feature – The Move Is On!

We have one month to do it and we are totally excited – we are moving! The big reveal will be next month but, in the meantime, we are relocating all of this . . .

. . . to this space! Instead of one open room, the new studio will have three rooms to design and fill.

Thank goodness we have kind friends and family who will be helping us because there’s a lot of vintage coolness to pack up! One thing is certain – It’s going to be amazing when we are finished!

Southern Vintage Table Events – Luncheons & Dinner Parties, Vintage Style!

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

Today’s post was inspired by this beautiful photo, shared by a client who hosted a sparkling wine tasting party this week for her wine club. Falling close to Valentine’s Day, she chose a palette of pinks and reds and the final result is stunning! Her 11 guests loved her tables and, of course, thoroughly enjoyed the evening, tasting 10 varieties of Champagnes and sparkling wines. Who wouldn’t, right?

Hosting a luncheon, casual get-together, or dinner party is a wonderful way to entertain your friends, co-workers, and family. Whether it’s at your home, in the office meeting room, or at an event space, we can help you design a memorable experience for the special folks in your life. Need a little inspiration? Here are a few photos from past luncheons and dinners we have had the pleasure to help coordinate.

Southern Vintage Table Events – Meredith & Jessie’s Vintage Wedding at Forest Hall

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

Forest Hall at Chatham Mills was the setting for Meredith and Jessie’s wondrous wedding nuptials. As shown in this gorgeous photo gallery by the talented Morgan Caddell, this celebration was chic, vibrant, and oh-so romantic!

We first met Meredith and Jessie at an open house held at an incredible historic venue in Pittsboro, Forest Hall at Chatham Mills. They wanted lots of color, bold patterns, and charm for their guests’ tables and we knew our inventory would be a terrific fit. After a first visit at the studio, we set the date and agreed to meet closer to the wedding date so they could personally select their items.

With a cadre of support from sister Claire and mother Pam, Meredith and Jessie arrived the week before the wedding. Together we organized the dish racks by table with a mix of bold vintage patterned dinner plates and coordinating goblets were packed in crates. For the dessert table, a collection of tea cups in blue & white, red & white, and floral patterns were chosen. Vintage dessert plates, napkins, flatware, and decanters for water completed their order.

We love the variety of vintage place settings Meredith and Jessie selected and Morgan photographed!

With sincerest gratitude, we are so honored to have played a part in this happy occasion. Cheers to you, Meredith and Jessie! Sending you best wishes for a joyful, loving, and fun life together!

I can’t express how happy I am that we rented our tableware from Southern Vintage Table!!! The mismatched china, colored glasses, decanters, etc. really elevated the over all feel of our wedding and was a perfect representation of our eclectic personalities. Shelly was such a pleasure to work with and really made us feel confident in our choices! Photos courtesy of Morgan Caddell Photography.

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!

New Year, New Goals

It’s time to set new goals for 2019! We have 3 this year and here they are:

Goal 1: Move to a new location!

Our lease is up in March so it’s time to relocate to a place of our own. Sharing a unit for the past two years has helped build our confidence but we are ready to go solo! With several options on the table, we should have our new space selected in a few weeks.

Goal 2: Create a weekly to-do list.

When you own your business and do it all, it can be difficult to manage every aspect. For instance, there’s the physical part – inventory to maintain, orders to filled by selecting, packing, and washing and then washing and putting everything away. There’s delivery/pickup and cleaning tasks. The other arena of work includes answering and sending emails, paying bills, maintaining the website, posting on social media, writing a weekly post, and researching new inventory. So, with all of these different tasks to manage, we want to create a weekly to-do list that addresses both the immediate needs as well as maintenance requirements. Whew.

Goal 3: Set a monthly thrift store budget. Gulp.

This will undoubtedly be a toughie! We love to pop in thrift stores to browse the latest inventory and even though we occasionally have walked in and walked out, most of the time we leave with something. Vintage shopping overlaps business and pleasure but we need to set a limit. What that limit is has yet to be determined. 🙂

See how excited I am – it’s my first time in this store!

That’s it! Moving, writing to-do lists, and limiting thrift shopping. We can do it!
