for the love of vintage, handmade & twee

As a girl I used to spend hours with my mother on the weekends searching through antique auctions and bric a brac stores. As an adult nothing much has changed, only how much I'm allowed to spend! This is my way of sharing my love with people who love good design and pretty little things.

Inspired by Spain + Churros!

I am not sure how I have not seen this blog before on Green Wedding Shoe's as I could swear I have spent hours trawling through her amazing wedding pictures and some how I missed these amazing shots!

This was styled by Contance Curtis of Contance Curtis Events and in her own words was inspired by: everything old, romantic, and antiqued, and then we tied in a Spanish theme throughout. Our vision began with an old antiqued white table and chairs with a vintage lace tablecloth. The style of the home where we set up our wedding shoot was Spanish and that fit perfectly for our vision. Mexican Talavera plates from San Miguel de Allende set the tone from the beginning and led us to our Mexican themed idea of Churros as a possible favor or dessert table and all our signage. Romantic and lush flowers in mismatched glass vases, crystals, fresh cut limes, bright gold silverware, and wine glasses with gold edging were just a few of the small details that came together to create this whimsical wedding photo shoot.

Anyway I will let the images speak for themselves.

I love the colourful glazing on the Churros, they sit almost like pencils in a pencil jar... so creative!

I love this tablscape... the vintage plates, mismatched vases and the layered lace. I love the opulence of the setting... the over flowing flowers and the detail of the crystals scattered around the plates. So Divine!

How cute are the name tags and the menus on the fan?

For more details on this Wedding and others please I implore you go to Green Wedding Shoe's and prepare to be inspired!

P.S I must admit some of this posting is so I can use these amazing images as a future reference for myself!
