Southern Living June 2016 all pages

We love a good throwback for inspiration, so here is one of our favorite photo shoots from recent years- for Southern Living Magazine, how to “Throw a Porch Party”.  I wanted to share all of the details with you in case you are still needing inspiration for your Memorial Day weekend. I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend.

In light of our new feature on design site, Charish, we thought we could post some of the ways we have designed our dinner tabletops with a touch or two of vintage pieces. One of the easiest ways to bring in some touch of vintage is through the china, glassware, or flatware in some way.  Even when working with a budget, even if you chose just one of these elements, you can still achieve lovely results. Above, antique gold rimmed chargers set the stage and then a lovely vintage styled ribbon tied around the napkins completed the look.

For this tabletop decor, we went with a collection of vintage candle holders to add a vintage feel.  The key to this look is to create a gathering several different versions but that all work together of course… mercury glass paired with the taller cut crystal holders add a subtle antique design.

Often times we can create a special tabletop for the head table or the bride and groom table. Antique silver goblets were used as water glasses, and the bride’s wedding china was used for the place settings.  Of course, we cleaned and packaged them to return afterwards.

This vintage tabletop combined many elements to create a cultivated look by using china, glassware, embroidered napkins, and antique candle holders.
