We may be still in the dark of winter, but with spring around the corner what better way to celebrate the blossoming of new life than a DIY vintage inspired table setting.
These gorgeous fair trade blooms are courtesty of Whole Foods Cambie Market. We supplied the vintage bubble vase and the mason jar and the lovely ladies of the floral department created a display of subtle pinks and greens with a vintage flair in mind.
The table runner is a handmade creation upcycled from an old wool blanket which was felted and cut into the shape of a giant leaf with green thread accenting the edging.
The wooden table numbers are created from recycled tree ends from a Christmas tree lot, with tiny holes drilled into the tops and recycled metal curled into a post to hold the table card.
Green stemmed vintage wine glasses are accompanied by handmade ceramic dishware from eikcam . Full dishware sets can be customed ordered from eikcam and make a great wedding gift. Visit Grace at her studio at the Mergatroid Building on Vernon street in Vancouver.
Handmade paper hearts to decorate are made from reclaimed booksand handmade papers and stitched together with embroidery thread. Holes are made through 6 sheets or more of paper with a awl and then pulled apart to create the 3D effect.
Large mason jars work beautifully as vases and can be found at any second hand store.
This vintage bubble vase was found at a second hand store for $2.00.
