Jeanette’s Shell Pink

I think by now, you all know I’m a collector of many things. That’s pretty much how I got into vintage rentals in the first place. Not many companies can say they got their start in hoarding. Ha!

There’s just something so beautiful about a collection. Sure, one piece is gorgeous all by itself, but put ten on the table and now we’re talking! Collections are unique and often harder to have than just an individual item. It’s the beauty of the masses. My favortite collections are the ones that are gathered piece-meal over time – one piece you may have found at an estate sale, the other in a dusty box at a yard sale. I guess it’s the thrill of the hunt. I definitely inherited that gene from my Mema. She is the queen of collections. She’s the one that got me to pay more attention to china. She taught me the patterns and taught me the values. I have the best time rummaging with her. She’s got the patience to sift through lots of junk – and that’s why she’s always finding lots of treasures!

With so many lovely vintage china collections out there, it was hard to decide what I wanted to start collecting first. One of the first lines I started to collect was Jeanette’s Shell Pink collection. It was produced in the 1950’s and looks like milk glass with a rosy tint. It was made for a very short time, so finding it is a littler harder than other collections. That’s why I like it so much.

I love it’s blush tones and find myself always dreaming of fun ways to use this light pop of pink. I couldn’t resist photographing it with our DIY Fiesta Banner. I think it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day!

New Inventory! 1957 Chevy Bel-Air

Just in time for all of those gorgeous Spring weddings, I’m happy to introduce our 1957 Chevy Bel-Air!

This car is an absolute gem! She has been completely restored with all original parts and, with over 50 factory options, you can see why she’s a real show stopper!

Fun Facts:

This car was originally sold in California in 1957.

This car has seat belts. In 1957, California was the first state to begin selling cars with seatbelts. The auto industry was slow to offer them in vehicles because they felt seat belts made the cars appear “unsafe”.

This car features power windows and power seats and was one of the first cars to offer this kind of luxury.

This car may cause onlookers to wave, shout or whistle real loud!

Stop! In the Name of Love

There’s alway been something very romantic about the simplicity and intimacy of a courthouse elopement – grab your best dress, pluck a fresh bouquet and skip away to the courthouse with your sweetheart. That’s exactly what this adorable couple did, and what’s more romantic than tying the knot on Valentine’s Day? After quick “I do’s” the happily married couple drove off in a classic 1957 Chevy Bel-Air with lots of handmade hearts, cans and streamers trailing behind.

Inspired by courthouse weddings of the 50’s and 60’s we incorporated a knee-length blush pink wedding dress with lace overlay for the bride as well as coordinating vintage accessories and birdcage veil. The groom wore a black suit and handmade skinny black tie. The florals were warm and romantic, using garden roses, tulips, and ranunculus in shades from blush to poppy pink.

The celebration didn’t stop once this couple said “I do”, they dropped custom wedding announcements in the mail inviting friends and family to celebrate their nuptials at a fun, backyard bar-b-que!

Well, hello there

There’s something about seeing an old car cruising down the highway that just makes everyone smile – complete strangers pull up beside you to give you the thumbs up, people happily toot their car horn or wave.

Growing up, we were constantly surrounded by old cars. We spent many a weekend dressed in poodle skirts and bobby socks for local car shows. Heck, most childhood memories of my Dad involve him in the garage tinkering on one of his cars. I guess an appreciation for things of the past is just engrained in me. It’s true what they say, they just don’t make ’em like they used to.

That’s why I think it’s so cool when brides choose to use a vintage car as their get-away vehicle. They’re just so fun! Seeing a bride and groom hop into an old car and pull away from the guests with a stream of cans rattling behind it is just so charming.

For that reason, I’m so excited to introduce you to this pretty lady! You’ve seen her in last year’s Summer in the South shoot, and now that she’s been spiffied up a little bit, we couldn’t be happier to officially welcome her into the family! (The car, not the girl, silly!)

This gorgeous 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air is such a fun car. With it’s flashy turquoise and white colors, you can’t help but smile while you’re cruising down the road.
