Vintage Bridal Shower


By Sarah Lagrotteria

My Aunt Holly and my cousin Katie threw me the most beautiful bridal shower at their home last Saturday.  It was a vintage-themed ladies luncheon for my Los Angeles girlfriends–complete with bridal bingo from 1970!

My cousin baked, painted and “bejeweled” sugar cookie engagement rings as favors.

My Aunt styled the table after a beautiful bridal gown…

….and decorated the tabletop with “vintage” wedding pics from the women in my family as well as cake toppers from their weddings and her friends’ weddings. It was a treat to see them side by side and appreciate all the different wedding styles.

Check out my parents!  My mom wore a high-neck lace mini for her wedding dress–so chic!

My grandmother wore a beautiful suit.

They also asked my friends to write out their favorite recipes on these beautiful cards. Lydia included her mom’s famous carrot cake! I can’t wait to share them all with you.

….lucky lucky lucky me.

    It was so fun and so well done! Holly and Katie deserve a pony for that one.
