Books Add Character To Vintage Design

One of my favorite ways to add interest to party/event design is by incorporating books into the decor – especially older ones that you would find at a thrift store that have been well worn. This wedding found on We Love Pictures uses books and other vintagey details to add warmth and character to the tables. They are beautifully stacked, wrapped in ribbon, or used as pedestals to elevate other pretty items, and the result is gorgeous!

I adore these last couple of photos where they have included fun paper items, and a darling photo booth.  The striped fabric backdrop is always a great option.

I hope you love these inspirational ideas as much as I do.  Cheers!
