Vintage Frills & Flowers

It's no secret that I'm a freak for vintage.

So of course when Ashley from Recollection Vintage invited me to their Open House, I was thrilled!

They have a GORGEOUS collection of vintage furniture and accessories, and it's all set up in a beautiful old house in Houston.

At the Open House there were lots of pretty desserts and delicious appetizers - I wanted to stay all day! Such a lovely little soiree, and a really great group of women who worked behind-the-scenes to bring it all together.

They've been collecting for years and now have their lovely collection available for rent for parties, weddings, photoshoots - whatever you can think up. I am so glad that they've opened up in Houston!

I got hungry from just reading the desert list! And such pretty flowers! I bet that any event adorned with these and those antique treasures would be just as gorgeous!

The Cart of Prettiness is probably one of the greatest pieces I have seen! I would LOVE to own something like that. Sounds like such a fun day, Dionne! xo

Wow!! You captured this essence of our existence in these photos!! Thanks so much for sharing these pictures!

Natalie Nicole said...

I was so happy to see a new post from you! The photos are fantastic and have me wanting to visit the shop (despite me being far away in the midwest). I've been into antique stores before which seem to accept anything and everything, but this store looks like a gem. Hmm but I suppose that means there are gems within that gem. I think I ruined my own metaphor ;)

Joyeful said...

Wow! Those flower arrangements are amazing!!! Of course the vintage is fabulous, too! I do love me some vintage! But the flowers....just wow!

S and O said...

Such lovely arrangements.
I could just imagine them brightening up a shop window or a cafe :D

Xoxo
