Champagne and Plumes

I hope you are loving the Inspired Creations Contest concepts so far and that they are giving you many creative and budget-friendly ideas for your wedding!  Today’s concept from the Portland, OR team of Rachael Hershmann from Lace and Likes, Debbie Dennis from BridalhoodMarigold Vintage Rentals and Benjamin Edwards features a vintage and feminine gold and pink tablescape and beverage station incorporating champagne, ostrich plumes and lots of sparkly details!

Gold-Goblets

The tabletop was set with vintage china, gold flatware, and glitter-covered vases full of lush ranunculus, peonies, and baby’s breath.  Antique gold-rimmed champagne glasses were filled with glitter and held gold flags that served as place cards, and vintage sparkly rings from Rachael’s grandmother dressed the vivid pink napkins.

Marigold Vintage Rentals brought in all of the vintage and rustic furniture for the shoot, including the distressed long white farm table, the antique hutch, the mismatched chairs, vintage chandeliers, old gold and pink suitcases, and beautiful soft textured pillows.  Rachael and Debbie created a backdrop of beautiful flowy white fabric accented with shiny pink and gold ribbons.  Perfect as a decor piece and a photo booth too!

To add a vintage touch, the champagne cocktail bar used old bottles and gold beverage pourers found at an antique store, and the menu featured old-fashioned champagne cocktails with elderflower and ginger liqueurs, honey vodka, and rose water.  Gold swizzle stir poms are the perfect glam touch!
