A 50s housewife bridal shower

My sister Nicci is a bridesmaid for an upcoming wedding (we featured the e-session here: Terry + Erin) and decided to throw a 50s housewife themed bridal shower for the bride. What a cute idea! We love the pretty pastels, her 50s cut out glasses and curlers and the baby blue Vespa parked in the garden. She even designed cute vintage style invites and tags for the lucky packets! Nicci’s tips for perfecting this look:
* polka dot wrapping paper is a must for a 50s houswife theme and you can use it in a myriad of ways, such as a tablecloth held down with tablecloth weights
* old school Frankie’s cooldrinks (she loved the Lemonade one)
* edible sweetie necklaces and bracelets
* old school props such as the scales, hatbox and glass beverage dispenser she got from Moi Decor
* add some bunting and balloons for to get a festive look
The whole shower came together so nicely. Well done sis x0x0
