Austin designer shares 5 ways to add vintage flair to your next party
If you're planning a wedding or a special event, make sure it's a night your guests will remember — and that it screams "you." Scavenged Vintage Rentals, run by licensed interior designer Lesley Steiner, rents vintage, vintage-inspired, and handmade goods — ranging from furniture to rugs to accessories — that can set your party apart from the rest.
Whether you have a specific vision in mind or you need more assistance in pinpointing your style, Scavenged Vintage can help. From modern and colorful to natural and organic, Scavenged has pieces for every vision and style.
Here are Steiner's five favorite ways to add some vintage flair to your next party:
1. Add a custom lounge
Create a comfortable area for your guests to rest their weary feet. Not only is this an impactful way to incorporate your personal style and personality, but Grandma (and anyone else who danced a little too hard) will certainly thank you.
2. Create a table fit for royalty
Seat the guests of honor at a table that stands out. Use a vintage rug and vintage Turkish pottery to frame the table, and add texture with a large flower arrangement and dried botanicals.
3. Show off your dessert
Elevate your dessert display, literally, with a vintage cake stand. Or antique trays are ideal for displaying smaller bites. Need a place to display it all? A vintage desk is the perfect solution.
4. Stand out by using one-of-a-kind decor
Throw a party like an influencer. Incorporate such vintage accessories as brass candlesticks, bohemian pottery, or silver trays into your decor to make it worthy of the 'gram.
5. Let guests feast their eyes
Whet their appetite with not just the food, but the tablescape, as well. Create a unique tablescape that's as delicious to look at as the five-course dinner by starting with colored wine glasses, then add vintage wood-turned candlesticks for an eclectic, bohemian look.
