Vintage Study Table Top Trend

YEAY!!! Finally my table top is on Once Wed. Emily was waiting to showcase it on her new and improved blog so I have been dying with anticipation for the last 4 months waiting for the post. I began to almost think she wasn't going to post it. :) But not the case! you can view the post here

Here is a description and item purchase list!

This table top once again utilizes the basics given at a venue. The round table, the white table cloth, basic white dishes. I wanted to have a fun table top that incorporates the a worldly traveler's home office or study. Lots of books, fun vintage cameras, maps or globes, and the perfect low-ball glass for that night cap. I wanted a look that was masculine but with feminine touches. White fluffy flowers but with leather napkin rings. The color palette was consistent of a soft and muted look, so there was nothing overpowering each other. I also had to add owls and pom poms just to give it a little quirkiness. I covered the white table cloth with mosquito netting to give some texture and some loose flowing drape to it and soften it with texture. I'm picturing the invitation to this fun and studious wedding would be shaped and written like an old manuscript, very simple with a typewriter font with old vintage maps for envelope liners. So fun.

Where to find it:
The books I gathered at the goodwill, based on color palette not title. I used one of the books and curled it's pages inward to make the "vase" for the flowers. For them to stay fresh each stem must have it's own little flower tube of water.
The vintage looking globe is from World Market.
The Owl Salt and Pepper shaker are from Anthropologie.
The Owl Glasses are from my own collection. Along with the old vintage Polaroid.
The Kraft paper numbers can be purchased at Paper Source or the Craft Pedlars online.
The Napkin Rings I made myself using strips of leather and fun little scrap booking metal tag holders. All from Michael's Arts and Crafts.
Candles and amber votives are also from Michael's.
The white and blue dessert plates are from Ikea
All rentals are from Arcadia Party rentals here in California
