We hope you all enjoyed a fabulous holiday weekend! We’re back with Vendor Love for The Vintage Table and owner Kathy Le Backes. Check out a recent corporate event we worked on with Kathy. Find out more about The Vintage Table below!
Hi Kathy! Can you tell us what your company does? Do you have a specialty?
We specialize in mismatched vintage place settings for rent– mismatched plates, glassware and flatware to add character and nostalgia to any tabletop.
Can you tell us a little about your company and how it started?
The idea started after I got married in 2010. Our aesthetic was very vintage, rustic, eclectic, and when it was all over I found myself with 200 mason jars in the garage and no idea what to do with them. I thought to myself, “I should rent these out for other brides to use!” then the idea expanded to the rest of the tabletop. I’ve always been a treasure hunter– I’ve been shopping at thrift stores, flea markets, garage sales for as long as I can remember — so how perfect was it to start a business doing something I love?!?
The business just turned two years old this month — it’s been a lot of hard work, networking, collecting and dishwashing, but it’s been worth it. I’m looking forward to continuing to grow the business, and to continuing to learn and meet more amazing people along the way.
Do you have any advice for couples or clients planning a wedding or large event?
Hire an event planner, like Mint Julep Social Events! When you’re getting married or throwing an event, the last thing you need is the enormous amount of stress that comes with event planning. Leave it to the professionals– they have connections to great vendors so you don’t have to do the hunting, and they have experience and resources to help your event go smoothly… so you can just relax and enjoy.
