Creative Vintage Wedding Centerpieces

A fun way to incorporate vintage style into a wedding design: I am scavenging these vintage medicine and tincture bottles for one of my Maine brides this summer...I can't wait to see them at the wedding on the guest tables with flowers, mixed with tons of votive candles and canning jars of larger floral arrangements....
I am going to keep the color pallete for this wedding under wraps for a bit, it is going to be so gorgeous! 

I love the thrill of the hunt...  When I see a dusty box full of these little sweeties tucked in the back of an antiques shop, I get frantic, like I found the golden ticket...maybe I am a bit obsessed, maybe I am just really into treasure hunting... Either way, I feel so fortunate to have clients who love these special treasures too. 

I like to think of it as recycling with style: Using ordinary things in extraordinary ways....a good idea, and one that allows me to justify my scavenging habits!

With spring upon us (soon, I hope!) I get the fever to make my first trips to the "shops", the junk shops, the antiques barns and flea markets in the area, to hold me over until it gets warm enough for the yard sales to start...oh yeah and for the epic treasure hunting trip of my lifetime: Brimfield Antiques Show in May!!  Oh dear, it is too much for me to even type the word "Brimfield"!! 

Happy hunting!
