our top 5 vintage rental items

We have been renting out vintage decor for almost 5 years now, and this theme is still very popular with most of our brides for their weddings in and around Pretoria and Johannesburg.

Here are our top 5 vintage items that are requested by our brides:

Vintage suitcases These suitcases all have a story and are great at creating focal points with vintage flair. Whether you stack them, use them as props, have some open to house confetti, or display them on their side to show table seating, they are perfect for the DIY bride.

Vintage bookstacks Whether you are a book lover or not, these bound vintage bookstacks are great to add to your tablescape. Prop a table number, votive or little bottle with a flower on it and you are halfway there to creating your vintage themed event! Some of our books have covers, some don’t, so remember to let Carla know your preference when you order yours.

Vintage scales Spruce up your candy table with our range of vintage scales by placing a cake or cupcakes on the top pan of the scale. Or, you can opt to use them as centrepieces with flowers ontop for a more shabby chic look. If you are using them for vintage baby showers, place a little bear or soft toy on the top.

Vintage typewriters We currently have two vintage typewriters in stock, one being a Remington typewriter and the other a Mercedes. They don’t work unfortunately, but are a lovely way of carrying your vintage theme through to your guest table – where you can insert a piece of paper with instructions like “leave us a message” into the typewriter.

Vintage cameras These little gems are great as props for photo booths, or to add to your vintage centerpiece display (think of placing them on a bookstack, or next to a simple flower display on your table). You can also use them to add some flair to your cake/ candy table.
