On a recent browse around online fashion fave ASOS (all in the name of research, of course) we found ourselves inspired by the vintage Toile de Jouy pattern which adorned several of the site’s prettiest summer gunas. The 18th Century toile, originally produced in Ireland, has enjoyed a renaissance in fashion and home decor and has been appearing in some of the most beautifully styled wedding photoshoots on the web over the last few years. Now, this isn’t the easiest palette to pull off and ideally is suited to a more intimate wedding celebration or maybe even a vintage afternoon tea styled bridal shower? If you’re up for the challenge however, there are many ways to get your hands on some vintage toile China for your tables either through local charity stores, vintage shops or online at Etsy or eBay. Even easier would be emailing one of the amazing wedding planners and stylists from our supplier directory and getting them to put if together for you! Powder blue bridesmaids or flower girls will add a soft romantic feel (or mix and match your maids with one in white, one in blue and one in toile!). Your wedding cake can make an incredible centrepiece for this palette, and in particular a hand painted cake in the toile pattern is bound to impress.
