I had a blast last night talking about Vintage Weddings and Showers at the Schaumburg Twp. Library. My friend artist Carol Thomas wore her bridal outfit complete with gear ring and hand dyed pink silk scarf!
One of the things I discussed was vintage wedding shower decorations. This mobile from the Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Cook Book (1958). Look at the balanced wooden spoons, rolling pins and cooky cutters. The caption says “Pretty for coffee-time and useful later!” For some reason, it looks like the cover of a murder mystery to me. Must be the outline of the person. You’d have to assemble this at the party, too, or how would you transport it? Still, I’d like to receive it!
