A Bridal Luncheon

Our sweet little vintage house was recently filled with giggling, happy women of all ages in celebration of the beginning of a young Bride's dream come true.  They all gathered at The Vintage House for a Bridal Luncheon, which was hosted by the Bride's Aunt who drove all the way from South Carolina.

On her journey to Kansas, the Aunt brought a treasure trove of family memorabilia that she asked The Vintage House Creatives to display in any fashion that we thought would fit into the already sweet decor of The Vintage House.

She brought beautiful old quilt blocks that had been created by the hands of the Bride's grandmother.  We knew immediately how to use these wonderful pieces of family history...

...we displayed a few of the quilt blocks on each of the tables throughout the house. We had preset the tables with narrow runners of white burlap and vintage crocks adorned with simple arrangements of sweet little orange, faux flowers. 

The kitchen was made ready with our potting table used as unique counter space to serve a true Southern style lunch that the Aunt had lovingly prepared for all to enjoy ~ buffet style.

 We creatively nestled their vintage sewing books, well-loved cookbooks and an interesting old jelly jar that had been repurposed as a drinking glass into the vintage crock bowl that the Aunt brought.

A few more unique items that we creatively displayed for the Bride's family and friends to enjoy...

The Aunt brought an old bundt cake pan...a perfect way to display the lovely old colorful, wooden spools of thread that some was, no doubt, used to piece together the old quilt squares that were adorning the tables.

In the front room of The Vintage House we have, as a permanent piece of furniture, an old wrought iron baby crib...the perfect spot to display the baby book and some sweet little well-worn shoes that belong to someone in the Bride's family.

I was so thrilled to have gotten in touch with Victoria Lynn, the Bride's photographer who is also a friend of the Bride. Tori was kind enough to share the remainder of these photos of the actual Bridal Luncheon with us...Thank you Victoria Lynn! 


It brings such joy to see our sweet little house being used for such a momentous occasion!  This Bride and her family truly made The Vintage House their very own.  

Remember The Vintage House when you are in need of that special and unique place to celebrate a special occasion of your very own.


To Andie, Jackie and Aunt Gayle ~ 
We thank you for celebrating with us!

Children's Summer Workshops

The Vintage House was home to Bee Creative Children's Workshops this summer, when two 3rd grade school teachers developed creative classes for children in 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade.  Each workshop had an educational theme to work around a fun craft that would be taken home by each child.  

Snacks were always served when the projects were finished.

Underwater Adventure was a favorite, as they each received a fish to take home.  They learned about fish, designed a fish bowl for their new pet, and wrote a short story about their fish.

Sock Creatures were created out of a simple sock.  The children used their creative 
writing skills to write a biography about their sock creature.

In the World Travel workshop, the children learned about other countries
as they created their own passports and wrote postcards.

The Vintage House is host to many wonderful ideas, events and happenings, whether it is put on by The Vintage House creatives or if the house is rented by an individual for a personal, unique event!  

What event do you do see holding at The Vintage House?
Baby shower?  Bridal Luncheon?  Business Meeting?
The ideas are endless!  

Call or email us for availability, pricing, or if you'd like to take a closer look.   We'd be happy to show you the space at your convenience to see if it may work for your own needs.
