Feature Friday: Hanging Glass Globe Vases

Glass Globe Hanging Vases

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing some of the sweetest little vases we have in inventory. We have these adorable hanging vases in two sizes and they make the perfect addition to any wedding (or engagement!). You could fill them with flowers as we have here, add some battery operated candles, trailing greenery, air plants, confetti… the options are really endless!

Glass Globe Hanging Vases

This gorgeous shot was taken at the sweetest engagement, you know she said yes with this elegant set up! I love how they look mixed with cafe lights. They’re gorgeous hanging from a pergola, from a tree, against a wall as a backdrop, or from an arch for a ceremony. Heck, you could hang a whole curtain of them as a ceremony backdrop. The small ones also work perfectly from branch centrepieces. These hanging vases are gaining popularity, but we still have them available for some dates this summer.

Feature Friday: Vintage Teacups

Today I’m sharing a bit of inspiration for vintage teacups at weddings. We have more than 120 of these babies (it has been so fun to collect them!) and I love to see the creative ways brides use them. Each one is so unique, they lend to such an eclectic look when all together. I also love to see just a couple featured as wedding decor. Ready to see what we’ve spotted on Pinterest?

Vintage Teacups at Weddings... so classy!

ONE: Set one at each place setting for guests to use instead of the typical catered coffee cups! This dresses up a simple table setting SO much. Also… you really should check out this whole outdoor/camp wedding. It’s Canadian (whoop whoop!) and incredibly dreamy.

TWO: Fill those teacups with beautiful flowers! This is such a popular way to use vintage teacups at weddings and it’s no wonder! They make the perfect little arrangement for centrepieces (especially atop some vintage books!).

THREE: Are you as taken with this look as I am? Hanging the teacups full of florals give such a whimsical touch. I would love to see a bunch of these hanging from a tree at an outdoor wedding.

FOUR: Vintage teacups are the perfect size for a wedding cake topper! Full of blooms or with just a couple stems like this one make for a beautiful statement.

FIVE: Displaying all the teacups on a table for your coffee or tea station makes for a beautiful statement. This adorable backyard wedding is from our very own Vancouver!

SIX: Sweet cupcakes look even more darling displayed in vintage teacups like these beauties. What a great addition to your cake or dessert table!

SEVEN: Kick your coffee/tea station up a notch with a vintage buffet to display all the vintage teacups! I’m in love with pretty much everything about this backyard wedding.

So, let’s hear it! Which of these is your favourite? I’m all about that first photo, not because the idea is crazy original but because it comes across so effortlessly elegant. Or maybe I’m just so in love with the whole wedding that I can’t think about anything else.

Feature Friday: Milk Glass Vases

15 Reasons to use Milk Glass at your Wedding... So classic!
Happy Feature Friday! Today I’m bringing lots of inspiration for the classic milk glass vase! We totally love milk glass, and I’m sure after these 15 inspiration shots, you will too! Milk glass is coming back in a big way- we love the bright white against bright colours or with neutrals for a muted look… you really can’t go wrong with them. Ready for the big list?

15 Reasons to use Milk Glass at your Wedding... So classic!
1. If you are having an intimate wedding or you can collect enough- what a sweet favour they make filled with a single bloom! Even sweeter, they double as escort cards.

2. Scatter them everywhere with mixed blooms. They dress up a table holding programs at your ceremony.

3. I’m totally smitten with this idea. Everyone loves the soft glow of candlelight… why not use milk glass bud vases as taper holders? This makes for such an elegant table setting.

4. This outdoor elopement is magical. We love the wild flowers mixed with lace and milk glass. Grouping milk glass vases together makes a stunning table runner!

5. Bright white milk glass can be mixed with any colour- we love this modern take on the classic staple with bright yellow pops!

6. These footed milk glass bowls are the perfect addition to your dessert table full of macaroons.

7. Speaking of sweets… how darling is this sweets station! The milk glass were collected from antique stores to create this stunning table.

8. I’m a sucker for vintage books, so this stacked centrepiece steals my heart! The height the books add gives the centrepiece such a collected look.

9. The rustic stump tables are the perfect place to set some milk glass full of gorgeous spring blooms! This would make such a lovely ceremony alter.

10. Footed milk glass bowls and vases filled with wildflowers make for a lovely summer dessert table- mix and match is the name of the game!

11. Guyyys! This is my favourite, there’s something about the concrete backdrop and the mass of milk glass full of spring florals that I just can’t get enough of. You should probably do this (and invite me to your wedding so I can swoon over it!).

12. It’s unexpected, but I’m stunned at how lovely milk glass looks paired with mercury glass! Who would have known?

13. This option is so classic atop a vintage lace doily. You can never go wrong with lace, am I right?

14. How about collecting a group of milk glass and votives on a vintage silver platter for a collected but finished look? Perfect, right!?

15. Last, but not least… succulents make such a naturally gorgeous centrepiece. Planting them in footed milk glass bowls is an unexpected way to use the classic piece (and when unexpected details look THIS good, they’re a win).

So that’s our list! Like I said, I’m smitten with number eleven. What’s your favourite? Have you seen milk glass used in any unique ways we might have missed? We’d love to hear from you!
