A wonderful way to decorate your destination wedding reception with vintage flair use vintage glass floats  with love these whether in bowls or combined with shells and flowers, on their own … on and on… many uses.  Vintage Japanese floats are relatively inexpensive and readily available, there is a shop on Etsy, Glass Float Junkie http://www.etsy.com/shop/GlassFloatJunkie?ref=seller_info Honestly I can see how someone can have an entire store dedicated to glass floats and become a glass float junkie.   Wonderful design options with glass floats… let your imagination go.

A great find for a destination wedding the vintage bamboo basket bowl.   My quick thoughts on how to use this for a vintage vibe for your destination wedding well endless possibilities, it could be used during the ceremony for a unique  basket for a older child to use as a flower basket.   Love this for your reception as a serving piece or a container for a flower or tropical foliage.  Found this basket at  the Etsy shop,Sweet Graffiti  http://www.etsy.com/shop/sweetgraffiti found many items that could be used for a destination wedding.
