After deciding that I would do a Vintage Kitchen shower for our bride, I started realizing all the things I really did have that would pull this off. It all started with an apron. I have a vintage green smocked gingham apron that I bought years ago. Since green was one of her colors I began here. I pulled out a green Jadite cake stand and a vintage rolling pin, with green handles, of course. I bought some more utensils and borrowed a Jadite batter bowl. I also thought of my Mother's milk glass. I had some bowls out, but realized I had four boxes that were unopened. I have had these boxes for at least 10 years! Look what I found in those boxes!!!!!! Is this perfect, or what? In case you wondered, I apologized to my Mom for not opening them earlier.
On a trip to the Farmer's Market I found these lovely tulips. Emily's colors are green, yellow and orange. They were perfect in my antique ironstone pitcher.
I made these little favors off of Martha's idea. Very easy and cute, I have to say.
Yes, that's an vintage ice cream maker.I added some fake fruit, which I had, and made the napkins tied with rickrack, which was easy.
I also made Emily wear a "veil" that I made out of the gingham's and calicos. She's going to wear it for her rehearsal. She is a VERY good sport.
I think I'll fill you in on the yummy food tomorrow. Thanks for visiting.
