Vintage plates, the hero of your gorgeous dinner table
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, white plates must be banned! Vintage plates are where it’s at my friend. There is nothing more interesting and more of a conversation starter than sitting down to a table laid with an array of gorgeous vintage dinner plates, each setting as individual as the guest sitting in front of it.
I’ve hired vintage plates and bowls to some of Sydney’s most influential event planners, and I’m talking weddings of 300 guests (I’m not sure I even KNOW 300 people but each to their own!) and the reason they keep coming back is because they love the sense of nostalgia and elegance my plates bring to their tables.
Vintage plates lend themselves to soooo many different themes and styles, it just makes me want to scream when people get fixated on vintage only meaning “rustic” themed events or tables strewn with doilies and lace. Yes, they can look just darling styled this way, but I want you to be creative with my plates! Use them to bring in an element of colour at your industrial styled dinner party, style them with some gorgeous greenery at your boho themed wedding reception or pair them with gorgeous jewel toned florals at your daughters Christening. Vintage plates lend themselves to so many different styles so have fun with them and be sure to share the pics with me afterwards as I love seeing the clever ways clients have styled my plates!
My inventory includes a range of dinner plates (25-28cm), entree plates (22-24cm) and side/cake plates (15-18cm), plus soup and cereal/dessert bowls. I include these plate size ranges as they are the universal standard guide for plate diameter. The size will vary due to the plates age (the older the plate the smaller the size) and brand.
So have check out the gallery below which and drop me a line if you’d like to come check out the vintage plates and bowls in all their glory, and then head on over to check out my gorgeous vintage cutlery and crystal glassware to finish off your glorious table.
