My Boot Sale Top Tips and Fave Vintage Finds for Weddings and Home Styling

I love a boot sale and would probably go to one every day if I could / had enough 20ps. You can find so many gems of all sorts - fruit & veg, plants, kids' toys, bacon butties... but obviously the reason for why I love them so much is for all the vintage treasures. Vintage prop/decor hunting is at its best at boot sales and I have found some of my favourite pieces at them.

Let me show you some of my pieces that I use in my wedding styling ...

My Vintage Weekend in Rye

I recently spent the weekend in Rye. I absolutely love this little town, and if you love historic places, beautiful old buildings and quaint little shops & restaurants, you need to pay a visit. For me, Rye sings out vintage. It makes me feel happy walking around the cobbled streets in my vintage dresses, especially if the sun is shining (we were lucky on that count!).

Fancy an Elegant Vintage Wedding? Take a peek at my vintage china styling...

I'm a firm believer that you shouldn't leave your best in the cupboards to gather dust. Get those pretties out, use them and display them, and if you're anything like me, you'll love to use them for pretty pictures too!

As I have an array of vintage china at my home, some special bits of my own and items from my prop cupboard that I like to use when they're not being hired out, I love to have my tea & cake in/on them, and to use them as often as I can.

Bright & Bold Vintage Wedding Inspiration, Part 1

As you know, I'm all for a neutral palette, or pretty pastels, for your wedding day. But here at Vintage Amy I'm not afraid to try something a little different to give all you bride-to-bes and vintage lovers some further inspiration for your wedding day, event or just for fun.

So a couple of months ago a wonderful team and I packed up our things to spend the day at Eridge Village Hall, where we were to transform the venue into a riot of colour with bold and fun looks for your big day, of course using my beloved vintage. I crafted a few little things for it too, and here you can see the results...

How to Style a Vintage Inspired Easter Table

Controversial I know, but I think I prefer styling at Easter to styling at Christmas. I don't do quite as much to the house overall, but I just love the Easter colours, the flowers and the food that you can have alongside it! Plus my pretty vintage china collection complements it all perfectly.
