The year was 1989 – Mary and Lanis were married and began their lives together. Twenty five years later, they wanted to bring their friends and family together to help them celebrate this sweet anniversary. Everything came together so perfectly – a rustic, lovely farm setting, freshly prepared food, spirited drinks, yummy desserts, fun music and beautiful tables with vintage decor. How wonderful is that?
Snipes Farm, once a thriving dairy farm in Orange County dating back from the 1940s, was the perfect venue for their party. Mary chose a soft sea foam color for the dining table linens and the collection of vintage lace overlays from Southern Vintage Table created the delicate, vintage look. With floral help from friends Florence and Ennis, table centerpieces were artfully arranged in vintage blue and clear Mason jars with an assortment of roses, Mary’s favorite, and other colorful flowers. The end result was simply gorgeous!
The buffet tables began with stacks of vintage plates primarily in pinks and blues. The delicious dinner, provided by Porchetta owners and chefs Nicholas and Matthew, included porchetta, shrimp & grits, mixed vegetables, sautéed sweet potato with fennel, mixed green salad and warm couscous salad. The dessert table, covered with vintage tiered and cake stands, was ready for the yummy cupcakes and macaroons created by DaisyCakes.
Southern Vintage Table added more vintage touches to the party atmosphere. First, guests were greeted with a vintage distressed garden cart covered with flower bouquets in vintage Mason jars. The drink station showcased two terrific vintage pink treasures – a vintage enameled tub and a vintage Coleman cooler. On a table decorated with vintage tins and scale, Mary and Lanis shared their wedding album with guests. Other photos from their 25 years together were strung along the bottle wall at Snipes Farm.
Eating, dancing, laughing and celebrating – as you can see, it was a fun-filled evening for Lanis, Mary and guests. To the friends of Lanis and Mary – many thanks for sharing these photos!
Congratulations, you two. Here’s to the next 25! Anniversaries, birthdays, weddings or family reunions – all reasons to invite Southern Vintage Table to help you celebrate your next life event!
