Amelia Island Wedding Expo

It was a great day for a Wedding Expo!  Many brides with their fiancée’s, family, and friends passed through the Amelia Island Wedding Expo held at the Amelia Island Golf Course Clubhouse.   The Expo was planned by local wedding planner Lisa Presnell of Lisa Presnell Productions.

Dish It Out was there with vintage place settings of different themes.  I chose a Something Blue, Our Adventure Begins, The Golden Years, Springing Up Weddings, and a Pantone Purple place setting to display at the Expo.  I loved having brides get an up close and personal look at my vintage rental collection.  Seeing pictures on Facebook and Instagram is great, but a true appreciation of the beauty of vintage china comes from seeing it up close!  

Andy Robinson of Black Box Photography was there with his trusty camera.  He took some terrific pictures of the day!  

If you’d like to see my collection up close just give me a call or shoot me an email.  I’m happy to arrange a time for people to come by!

Oh Those Mason Jars And All Their Uses!

If you're in the South it's hard to escape the mason jars!  These babies aren't just used for canning in these parts!  They are popping up at all types of events.

Mason jars are being used for weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, and other events.  They are most typically used for drinking glasses and for flowers.  Sweet tea, lemonade, and signature cocktails are great ice cold in a mason jar.  Bouquets of colorful flowers really stand out when put in mason jars and make great centerpieces.  But, why just stop there?  There are plenty of other uses for the mason jar!

Gold flatware really pops when it is in a mason jar and used on a dinner or dessert table.  I love how my vintage flatware looks in a mason jar.  It's a great look for a rustic wedding with a vintage feel.

Who doesn't like dessert?  Mason jars are great for desserts!  Serve your guests ice cream, parfait, or a chocolate mousse in a mason jar.  Doughnuts are super fun at a party and everyone seems to love them!.  Fill mason jars with milk, add a straw, and top with a doughnut.  Your guests will love this!

If your having kids at your event they need a space of their own and activities to keep them entertained.  Fill mason jars with crayons, colored pencils, cards, or dollar store games and puzzles.  The kids will be happy you thought of them!

Whether you love them or think they should be just for jams n jellies there is just no escaping the mason jar.  I kind of love them and have many in my rental inventory!
