Vintage-Chic Garden Wedding

Spring is oh-so-close to being here, and this garden wedding puts me right in the mood for back yard entertaining!  If you’re planning a small Spring or Summer wedding this is just the inspiration you need.  But, don’t just look at wedding designs for nuptials, take the ideas and incorporate them into Bridal Showers, Special Birthdays, Mother’s Day, or any outdoor celebration.  
This gorgeous event was designed by Eileen Tran, and photographed by Pam Scott.  The dining table is set with a runner created from Italian maps and book pages, and an eclectic mix of vases filled with tulips, roses, billy balls, and dusty miller.
A vintage look was incorporated into the decor through milk glass, vintage cake stands, old books, and an old typewriter.  I love the touches of book pages in the small ‘flower’ garland, below.  Pages are also tucked into the drawers, used as a table topper, and used to create rosette pins that had affectionate nicknames for each guest.  Those are details you can do for any occasion!
I hope you love this creative and beautiful design as much as I do.  I think it’s a great mix of vintage and modern ideas combined!
