Today Mom Taffy and I spent the day together doing some wedding bonding (and work!). Our main goal was to find the perfect centerpiece vase. We are able to save quite a lot of money on flowers by providing vases to the florist, but he requires that you bring one into his shop for his approval before buying them in bulk. My first vase failed to be approved, so we were determined to find a winner today.
The second goal was to look through antique stores for my bridal jewelry. We struck out in the jewelry area, but hit the jackpot with this cute vintage Valentine, which will be perfect for Mr. Taffy!
How cute is this??? I have a few sewing themed vintage Valentines that I used to keep pinned up in my studio, but this one is so perfect for us. The two little birds remind me of our adorable pet canaries, and we started a garden together this past summer. I love that the original date and name are written on the card. But should I erase them before giving this to Mr. Taffy?
We did also find a vase, and dropped it off for florist approval (I hope!). I had the best time with my mom today, and we found some amazing deals at the antiques store that she will be using for our bridal shower. I won’t be able to reveal them for a while, but I promise they are worth the wait!
Have you found amazing wedding deals while antiquing?
