A Lovely Baby Shower

These three girl's hosted a lovely baby shower @ The Vintage House 
for one of their dear friends who was having her first baby...
They chose to have additional tables set up to accommodate 
a sit-down dining experience for their guests, serving sweet and savory crepes...buffet style.
 The Vintage House does not really require much decorating for events 
that are hosted here...it is already very sweet and girly...
We do, however, encourage our guests to "make it their own" by adding their own special touches...this archway is the perfect spot to hang a personal banner that is specific to the event that is being held. 
 This vintage iron crib, which is part of the furnishings of the house, 
lends itself for a special place to display gifts for baby...

 Kalyn, one of the gals who hosted this baby shower, has her own business of creating beautiful invitations and stationary...Lilah Paper...and made these darling labels to add to the treats that were to go home with the guests.
 Our guests of The Vintage House are welcomed to use our treasure trove of
 lovely vintage ironstone dishes, serving ware, silverware, whatever is on hand to help create a 
beautiful, warm and charming experience... 
Needless to say...this momma-to-be was very pleased!

If you would like to learn more about how you can 
host your own event @ The Vintage House, 
please feel free to contact me...
If you would like to take a "peek" inside, 
I'd be happy to meet you there anytime!

The Perfect Wedding Guide Bridal Show...

We attended the Perfect Wedding Guide Bridal Show recently to introduce our sweet space to brides-to-be as a venue for a bridal shower, bridal luncheon or a place for wedding day preparation, or even an intimate wedding or rehearsal dinner.
 Decorating the booth was easy...we displayed my mom's 1953 wedding dress 
which was a huge hit among many of the passers by...wanting a dress just like 
it for their own special day!
 The vintage couch is a find from a couple of years ago...and belongs to one of my daughters
...but she allows me to use it on loan anytime I need it for a prop!
We raffled off a girl's night at The Vintage House...along with a basket of wine, a girls' movie, 
and a nail polish set for when the winner stays with her friends at the house.

We invited the brides to take a peek inside our sweet venue the following weekend...
so they could see for themselves that The Vintage House is the perfect venue for 
their bridal luncheon, bridal shower, or wedding day prep!
It was a fun day, first working with my two daughters, and then, meeting all of the blushing 
brides to be...with the anticipation of creating their beautiful dream wedding day...

A Valentine's Day Party Photo Shoot @ The Vintage House

M Magazine - The Magazine for Kansas City Moms, used The Vintage House for a photo shoot for their February issue.  They brought in some special valentine details for the photo shoot...which looked amazing in the soft palette of The Vintage House!
 Working on the details...

 Watching these ladies in action was so much fun!  

 The little ones were so cooperative...and were just too cute!

 One of the props of the photo shoot was a beautiful cake, and cupcakes...
the kids couldn't wait to take a taste...

The Vintage House was a perfect spot to take these photos...
with the natural light that filtered in the dining room windows...
