Sometimes setting a vintage mood for your wedding reception can simply involve color and collection.  Let me explain – as you can see in this beautiful outdoor setting, subtle, rich color and sumptuous fabrics draped freely over the table set the perfect tableaux for a burst of soft, heirloom flowers and large, ornate candelabra.  Casual, yet inviting and glamorous.

Your caterer or bakery can provide you with vintage-look cake stands.

You know how people dress their outdoor trees in lights at Christmas?  Use the same concept to hang chandeliers outside! (you know how I am about chandeliers)

And of course, scatter your venue with lovely vintage wedding favors for your guests, so the memories fondly linger on.
