About Vintage Place Settings
Vintage Place Settings is a vintage rental business that specializes in vintage tableware treasures we rescue from Chicago area estate sales. We repurpose our “finds” in table settings for special events like tea party showers, engagement cocktail parties, and wedding receptions. Our unique approach offers coordinated mixed patterns styled to fit a particular theme, color or design selected by our clients to compliment their desired decor. Our rentals include china, glassware, flatware, dessert display items, and other table decor. Our consultation is free, and we also offer delivery and set-up.
We are proud to be eco-friendly in the repurposing of vintage place settings for use in event tableware, and we are passionate about being a green vendor. Our commitment to eco-friendly practices goes beyond rescuing items from landfills for rentals. Damaged items are repurposed through donations to artists where their life is further extended in beautiful pieces of art. We have also developed methods of packing our rentals with materials that can be cleaned and reused repeatedly to limit waste as much as possible. We routinely recommend the use of other GWA eco-friendly business to our clients. After joining the Green Wedding Alliance, we have made other improvements in our businesses to improve sustainability and lower our impact on the environment. Those include moving our showroom closer to our homes and event venues to shorten travel times, downsizing our vehicles to improve their fuel efficiency, and using eco-friendly products whenever possible for cleaning, packing, and printing.
