Vintage Vessels

This is my newest project! After a years of chairing fundraising events and throwing parties, inexpensive containers for "grouping" centerpieces were always at the top our must-have list. We've been pretty creative with our budgets by saving food cans, re-using wine bottles and throwing together everything we own to make things look good. But not everyone has the time or inclination to thrift, go to endless estate and garage sales, or rescue things from the trash. That's where Vintage Vessels comes in. We're doing all the dirty work and will be loaning our unique vintage and reclaimed vessels for do-it-yourself brides, bridal & baby showers, dinner parties, afternoon teas and special picnics.

We've been going crazy collecting a wide arrangement of vessels for every possible theme we could think of: milk glass, glass, mason jars, baskets, silver, mirrors, serving pieces, old tins and colored glass. We'll have a website up soon and of course we're starting a blog.

While visiting Oh Joy! today, I saw this photo by Christian Chaize, all the lovely colors made me think of the Vintage Vessels logo, and what a great color story it could be for our soon-to-be website. We're excited!
