I was speaking with a bride and her mother in my booth at Woodstock Wedding Walk about my rental collection the other day. When the bride said "MOM thats your scale you have in the pantry'!
Why not make your wedding décor more meaningful by using props from your mother or grandmothers home first. Then fill in what you don't have with rental items. Here is my recommended list for creating a vintage look at your next affair.
1. Mismatched Vintage China-can be used on a set table, buffet table or the head table only.
2.Vintage Luggage and Trunks-use as card boxes, message note holders or stacked.
3.Vintage hardback books in various colors -stack in 3's on tables with twine or lace.
4. Vintage kitchenware repurposed as props to hold china and platters-scales, dish drainers, chairs, etc.
5. Pearls-Drape faux pearls over books, over typewriters, over centerpiece flowers.
