Ah, Monday, how I love thee...well, at least I love writing about weddings on Mondays! This week's installment of I love Mondays is one of my favorite themes for a wedding - Vintage-inspired tabletops. I love love love the look of vintage pieces mixed and matched with current pieces for the perfect table arrangement. Vintage can be interpreted in many ways, from many eras. For Jasmine and David's reception, we used mix-and-match tables and chairs, nixed the idea of table linens, and added old house numbers to act as table numbers.
Jasmine's Mom Denise spent months hunting down the perfect shade of aqua blue-green Ball jars to act as vases, and we incorporated clear Ball jars as candle holders. Finally, our fantastic florist, Holly Flora
, incorporated some of their funky vases to highlight their beautiful flower arrangements. Vintage perfection.
For Alyssa and Anselm's wedding, we interpreted vintage as a bright palette of flowers in funky vcontainers to give a 60's MadMen-ish vibe. We used simple white linens and minimalist place settings to complete the look. It was unique and fun, and perfectly matched this lovely couple's aesthetic.
Another favorite idea - forgoing plain rented china for old patterened sets. I love this look, and this totally lends itself to my love of scouring flea markets. For someone who loves having old pieces around, this is a great way to both build your collection and formulate the perfect, one-of-a-kind table setting. If you want a unique look and love vintage - this is the way to go to ensure your look is like no other.
