There’s something magical about the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. Not only was it a simpler time, but the design aesthetic was the bee’s knees. If the bride is a lover of all things retro, channel that with a vintage bridal shower. Don’t shy away from lace, floral printed china and antique metal accents.
But how do you pick out party favors for a vintage bridal shower? Rather than scouring the local antique stores, we have items for you that won’t break the bank. These vintage favors are both useful and perfect for that antique aesthetic.
1. Cameo Picture Holders
Cameos are great if you’re going for a feminine tea party atmosphere. In addition to working as great place card holders for the beginning of the bridal shower, guests can also take them home and use them as picture holders once the party is over.
2. Typewriter Picture Holders
Maybe cameos aren’t really your style. In that case, use these little vintage typewriters instead. Guests will love the film noir aesthetic and will be so excited to know they can them home at the end of the night.
3. Pink Tea Light Holders
Need some cute lighting? These pink tea light holders cast a warm glow as part of your beautiful centerpieces. You could also use them as holders for tea roses or hydrangeas. Either way, they work well not only for decor for a vintage tea party bridal shower, but they also make a great take-home gift.
4. Vintage Bird Cages
Aged metal is often a staple when it comes to vintage decor. These vintage bird cages look like they were plucked from a porch in the mid-1900s. Guests can either use these for lighting or as a creative way to display beautiful flowers. They are just over seven inches tall, or over eight inches including the handles.
5. Antique Key Bottle Openers
If you’re at a loss for how to decorate a vintage bridal shower, keys are your answer. Ornate retro or vintage keys add an antique accent that goes well with the theme. Carry that theme through to the party favors. For instance, get each guests one of these useful antique key bottle openers.
6. Antique Key Bottle Stoppers
What about the wine drinkers? Don’t forget about them! These bottle stoppers feature an ornate, ornamental antique key. You could give these as part of a set along with the key bottle opener, or hand out these separately as guests leave the bridal shower.
