Collectors Table: Vintage Tin Containers


I love the recent trend of brides collecting items to use in their wedding! It brings such a personal and unique touch to your day and allows you to keep and treasure the objects for years to come. Melissa from Evantine Design put together a beautiful “collectors table” for a recent event that highlights this trend and shows how lovely collected and found objects can be in your wedding. She gathered beautiful vintage tin containers and added in lots of colored glass and wooden lanterns.

All of these amazing photos are by one of my favorite ladies, Marie Labbancz.

Melissa shares:

Rather than a focusing on a color or favorite flower as the décor theme, we are lucky enough to have many different collections of items here to play with as we design parties for clients. This particular collection shown is of vintage tin containers. Love the juxtaposition of the old tins, mixed with vintage colored glass, wooden reproduction lanterns and modern white butterfly chairs. Not to mention the amazing mix of bright and happy colors in the flowers!

I love the setting of the Urban Outfitters Warehouse at The Navy Yard in Philadelphia.  It’s so open and airy, and a clean slate for any type of event!

    I love everything about this post. Now I have to go get out all my tins and redo my dining table centerpiece. Thanks for sharing.

  2. great photography work (and of course a really good subject to shoot), very nice.

  3. wow, this post is all sorts of pretty!! i am a huge fan of flowers in clear turquoise glass, i was actually about to buy some at the antique shop today but i bought a lot of other things while i was there.. next time i will get the glass tho, i’m thinking 3 clear glasses with different flowers in them next to each other will be nice! =)

  4. What a great post! these pictures are so perfect for anything from rehearsal dinners, casual weddings, to a dinner party. Next time I have a dinner party I’m going to incorporate the different containers for flowers.
