Have I mentioned my love for all things vintage? Oh, I have? Well then, it only makes sense that ever since I saw these plates a few months ago I haven't been able to get them out of my mind. They are the perfect jumping off point for a vintage bridal shower (or any other girlie occasion) that combines vintage refinement with a little "wink."
These simple invitations from Wedding Paper Divas let guests know they're in for something ladylike. Little do they know the kitsch is around the corner. I think it would be amazing if you added a line to the invite asking your guests to come dressed in vintage party frocks. I.Would.Love.That.
I love the simplicity of this table runner from Target. Hurry though, it's on clearance online. (Bonus!) Run it over a simple white tablecloth and then use vintage purses, sunglasses, teacups and round hat boxes for your centerpiece items. Tuck fresh blooms inside the purses and teacups for easy floral arrangements.
If a new plate for each guest isn't in your budget, get a few for serving/decor and get the coordinating napkins instead. Place a napkin centered on simple white plates and you'll still convey the look for less. While you're getting serving pieces, add a couple of these chocolate brown serving platters to your stash. I adore these.
In lieu of regular placecards, get these sassy mugs and put one at each setting. Replace the tag on a teabag with a homemade nametag instead and place the teabag inside the cup. Placecard and favor all in one. Easy breezy, beautiful vintage girl.
Next up, we'll go 50's fun. I hear Elvis might even make an appearance. Stay tuned.
