Rustic locations encourage the mind to explore the history of an area. Designers can expand on the natural beauty of a setting by incorporating vintage inspired glassware with flora, furniture, fabrics and paper decorations.
The most interesting aspect of working within such a vague and whimsical idea is that it allows the details of an event to evolve organically, and really speak to the unique aspects of the people and place being celebrated. No matter where you are planning on holding your event, the tradition and culture of the area can be captured and magnified with decorations and props.
The variety of objects one can use to best describe the personality of an event can sometimes feel overwhelming. A good way to approach your decor is to choose the main elements of the event that are a must, then build around them. What is so great about the rustic, shabby-chic vintage approach is that there are so many fun factors to work with in order to communicate what personally moves you.
Americana intermixed with Asian influence is elegant, fun and ever-so vintage inspired. Items like our bamboo Paper Parasols look lovely in photographs and also protect you and your guests from UV rays while providing a fun and affordable gift to remember you by!

This table setting is chock full of important trends! Let me point them out:
- Color scheme: Green, multiple shades of purple, silver.
- Overall Vintage look
- Reflective surfaces
- Depression Era Glass – the translucent green dinner plate would be right at home in a collection from the 1930’s!
- Mercury Glass vases holding small clusters of flowers – the Mercury Glass adds shine and mirrors the colors around it. The small bouquets distribute the flowers around the table, allowing each guest to enjoy them up close.
- More Mercury Glass – candlestick holders, drinking cups, and centerpiece.
- Vintage-inspired colored glass – wine and water glasses with an antique look, embellished with etching.
At Luna Bazaar we pay close attention to trends. We are either setting the trend or making sure our product selection reflects current trends. Our savvy team is on top of this! You can find all of the above trends in our store at www.lunabazaar.com.
|Fashion Forward Color Scheme: Assorted shades of purple: lilac, plum and Bellflower, with a green accent: Lamb’s Ear.|
These colors are so pleasing together! Inspired by the Hyacinths, Hydrangeas, and Irises in the bouquets, they work so well for Spring. This season our in-house color designer added Bellflower and Lanb’s Ear to our palette of product colors. Use our paper lanterns to carry out your color scheme around your reception space. Parasols and hand fans are available in the same colors for a very put-together look. All can be found in “Shop by Color” on our website. Find Find Bellflower here, and Lamb’s Ear here.

You really feel like you’re at a special occasion when the table shines with these bud vases brimming with colorful blooms. Measuring from 4 to 6 inches in height, these vases give you an idea of the variety of choices available from Luna Bazaar. All of our silver mercury glass vases are also available in gold mercury glass.
Sleek or ornate, as a centerpiece or scattered around the table, our Mercury Glass candlesticks add a touch of opulence. They range in size from 7 to 7 1/2 inches tall.
|To evoke a feeling of family tradition include Depression Era inspired glass.|
One of the features that makes Pat and Glenn’s table setting so striking is that it is drenched in color. Picture it in your mind’s eye with clear crystal stemware. Not doubt it would still be lovely, but cooler and less celebratory. Of course, nothing looks more elegant than clear crystal, white linens, and a touch of gold or silver. But the colored wine and water glasses in their display not only looks festive and elegant, but I’m sure guests will be reminded of getting out the “special glasses” to celebrate family occasions in the past. Our glass tea light holders and vases based on popular Depression Glass designs are not suitable for food consumption, but will add the nostalgic touch that will make your table complete.
Decorate & Celebrate!
from Dorothy and the team at Luna Bazaar.
Everyone wants to ring in the New Year in a special way. I know I want to! However, no one seems to have the time or the budget to dress up their home after Christmas. I know I am not the only one that leaves their tree up and considers that decoration enough for the New Year. This year is different! After finding these gold foil stars, I am determined to put them up to celebrate 2012. They are fun, festive, and affordable.
A few years back I started making a special dinner to celebrate the first day of the year. A traditional meal for this holiday is ham, black eyed peas, and cabbage. Each element of the meal represents good tidings for the New Year. I’m game for anything that may bring me good luck!
