Great Finds

It's been hectic finalizing and squaring away all the July weddings, and continuing on with other upcoming weddings for the next few months. Before I headed off to Halfmoon Bay for Julia and Chris' wedding next weekend, I wanted to finalize the tablescape details for the September Marvimon wedding.

Kristine and I have been visiting many stores trying to find vintage collection items that would complement the Marvimon space. Today, I was thrilled when we were able to put together some of the items we purchased throughout the week. I won't show you the whole tablescape, but I'll give you a sneek peek of all the amazing stuff we found, all for UNDER $35 each.

Introducing Kristine's garage and this picture does not do justice! She has an amazing and TONS of collection of silverwear and party trays in her garage/ workspace. I felt like I was in a Crate and Barrel Outlet

Kristine found these rustic lanterns at Home Goods for under $30 each.

T.J Maxx: Tall skinny vases were $6- $7 each. We found those colorful votives at $5 for 8 pieces

These little guys caught my eyes when I was shopping at Pier One the other day. Succulent and cactus mini pots- 3 for $8

Its such a hassle if you "DIY" these mini pots, but considering that its $2.50 per pot, I'd say its a steal! We'll be using these for escort cards and favors for guests to take home.

I love the props that we found for the sign in table. Kristine bought a vintage airplane ($16.99) and a small vintage suitcase ($35) because the couple will be going to Greece for their honeymoon right after the wedding. I bought an "All Because Two People Fell in Love" sign ($4.99) and vintage books that you can actually open up like boxes (for under $30), which all give off the vintage feel. We found a lot of other neat stuff which aren't shown above that we can't reveal just yet, but its going to be really awesome!

These are some of the modern floral arrangements that Kristine will be making. She will be mixing and matching different elements to get the rustic, natural and organic look with a modern twist. I can't wait to put these together with our custome made runners, linens, chargers, and so much more!
Our search isn't over yet...... I'll be hitting major flea markets & looking through Craigslist to find more stuff..
