How excited I am to share these photos with you from one of our last bridal shows by Plucky Maidens! If you were not able to attend their Get Hitched Vintage Bridal Show, it’s a MUST for next year (mark your calendar now, the next show will be Sunday, October 12, 2014). When I got word they were putting on their first ever vintage bridal show, I knew Something Borrowed Portland had to be there! I have been a fan of Plucky’s “junk fests” and knew the show would be well received (and it was).

Thank you Hazelwood Photo for sharing these photo’s with us!

Something Borrowed Portland Vintage Rentals 1

You’ve likely heard me speak to the fact that I love finding new uses for old things. I had a vintage book that had seen better days and decided to turn it into something functional. Removing the cover, and one-by-one, I bent over each page of the book to make this fun and whimsical card holder. How fun is it?!

Shown here is our Grace sectional, Violet side table, assorted brass vessels, and gold votives.

Proper signage at a bridal show is a must! We love displaying one of our signs in our Winchell sign holder paired with a gold votive holder, vintage camera and brass vessel.

Competing the look with our Drew side table is easy. We stacked and tied vintage books (these have the covers removed) with assorted clocks.

Love the pink backdrop? I custom made this beauty specifically for the show and instantly fell in love with her! While she is not yet in our inventory (coming soon), she is available for rent. Shown here with other pieces from our inventory including: Ehlen coffee table, Grace sectional sofa, ballet box {perfect as a card holder}, gold votive holder and vintage camera and of course, the amazing cake by Artisan Cake Company.

A few booths down from us was our dear friend Sarah, with Hazelwood Photo. We supplied her booth with our Clara dropleaf table, Sabina blue table, peach ribbon backdrop, burlap and peach bunting, and an assortment of vintage cameras.

Portland Vintage bridal show featuring Artisan Cake Company

Another one of our favorite vendors, Artisan Cake Company, happen to be right next to us. Each time someone walked by you could see the cakes “bounce” given the bouncy floor at the Crystal Ballroom. Aren’t these gorgeous cakes stunning on our Lucille white desk?

Portland Vintage bridal show featuring Pearl and Roses Wedding Planning

Another of our favorite vendors was also at the show, Pearl and Roses Wedding Planning. When I found out Donna was going to be there, the wheels started turning on a fun decor for her booth. Shown here is our Alberta table used as a sweetheart table, both our blush and red sweetheart chairs and our assorted brass candle holders.

We wanted to do something creative with some old piano rolls I have, so we decided to use them as a table runner along with a few doilies to soften the look.

Pearl and Roses Portland Wedding Planner 3

Given the event was held at the start of spring, we opted for a soft color palette in shades of pink, cream and white.

We decked out the settings with vintage china dinner and salad plates and our pink goblets.

Donna also used our new Alabaster table, which as you can see, makes a perfect guest sign-in table (or a great cake table).

Thank you, Plucky Maidens, for having us! We can’t wait for the next show!
