Arizona event planning

A very woodsey, rustic sweetheart table

Also featured on Glamour & Grace Hierloom Weddings

An outdoorsy, English-inspired tea-themed wedding in desert? Sí se puede ~  add our eclectic assortment of vintage ware, a vision perfectly conceived by Michelle and photographed by April to a location like Secret Garden ASU – Yes We Can ~ It is so possible to create a fanciful look with the right ingredients!

So the inspiration was for a sweetheart table set up just for the romance-full couple. For this shoot, Tea Crockery contributed our popular (favorite with brides) full dinner suite package: dinner, dessert and bread-n-butter plates along with a teacup and saucer set; the works all placed on a doilie, with a vintage napkin and silvery sparking flatware! Marsala and gold name tags were provided by Shikki, look completed with Brit-style bunting hung behind the table. Garden Gate Flowers- a beautiful flower arranger, created beautiful floral centerpiece to pretty up the table. She also made the crowns for the bride and bridesmaids. Part 2 of the shoot features the crowns for bridesmaids as well. Will be adding the post with pretty pictures soon!!_mg_0654_mg_0729_MG_0726.jpg_mg_0699_mg_0707_mg_0691_mg_0701_MG_0718.jpg_mg_0724_mg_0672_mg_0679_mg_0682_mg_0684_mg_1082_mg_0821-2_mg_0749_mg_0748

Tea Crockery provided china, linen and various antique/ vintage decor elements.

About Author

Hi and welcome to my blog!

My name is Riffat and I am the writer behind this blog. Through this blog I share many things I am enthusiastic about – my curated items from old era, passion for tea and tea parties, design and décor, DIY projects. I specifically like to create themed and seasonal parties incorporating vintage treasures. I am married to an awesome guy who has {a good case of} wanderlust and is a grand but healthy foodie. Occasionally I will be journaling and sharing his experiences in travel, recipes and restaurant reviews. On my blog you will also get to meet our 3 amazing boys – the oldest is neuro-diverse and his being on the spectrum has given a different and incredible meaning to our family! I would be a very different person without him. Besides enjoying my family and this blog, I am a full-time speech and language pathologist.

We recently moved to Dallas from Arizona. Back there, I ran a vintage china rental and sales business. I had the pleasure of working with some amazing vendors in the event industry and got featured on many international and national blogs. I started blogging specific to my collection but recently switched to life style blogging to touch more aspects of life.

Originally from Pakistan, I am a multicultural and multilingual person and enjoy diversity to its fullest. I welcome new things and ways and learn from them but believe in restoring and preserving as well. I love people who inspire each other, are successful holistically, spread positive vibes and make a difference in this world for themselves and individuals around them. Overall, I strive to be a very well-balanced person and this blog plays some part in achieving that!

I absolutely love to team up with creative minds! Feel free to contact me for style consultation, photo shoots, vintage & antique articles, tea parties and hand-made items. I also do product reviews and feature items on my blog. I have a small shop on etsy featuring my collection and hand-made items.
