Laughter, good conversations, and the light-hearted moments fill life with joy. Holidays, friends, loved ones having a good time and bonding over a vintage garden party are beautiful memories to create. A weekend with your gals in the backyard with vintage decor is a memory to make. Embellishing your garden with jeweled elements mixed with rustic wooden elements creates a balance of the old versus new. A sense of earthiness mixed with baroque and renaissance elements found in the crockery.
Elements for the backyard
A lacy doily for the table in filigree of gold and silver threads surrounded with peonies, rose, snapdragons, and flower decor you can get your hands on. Floral delights are one of the primary elements in vintage decor. When the baroque spoke of opulence and highly ornate decor in metallic colors of gold and copper, it ushered a wish in your mind to live through the grandiose you can create using these elements. Throw in metalllic knick-knacks hanging from the bushes and trees and a string of decorative lights.
Barrette clips, frills, ruffles, satin, and beads
Dressing for the theme party is a joy in itself. Get back the pearly barrette clips to dress your hair in elegance. Bring on the lacy gloves and elaborate hats to live the Victorian era where everything was sweet and elegant. The times when prudence was celebrated and all gnarly affairs resolved with a high-brow tiff. Talking of all the pleasant things in life and paving a way for smiles brighter ushering good times. Feel a few years and decades younger with the embellished fabric bows making your hair suite speak of the beauty it is dressed in.
Send out beautifully written thank you notes in calligraphy and ink giving it a personal touch of your taste and hospitality. Words written in ink flowing through the scented artistic paper giving warmth and sweetness to the occasion. Verses, thoughtful notes, and poetry makes the occasion ingrained in the memories of guests and your loved ones.
High-waist denims, floral dresses, halternecks, and seamlines
Is the party casual? Bring on high-waisted denims with a blouse in frills and thrills. This is your day to celebrate with your trusty-sidekicks. Decode the dreariness with a bust of colors in floral motifs, dresses, and seam-lines that are louder than the demure couture. Not a day to get wasted but enough the sparkling wine, flavored chocolates, and goodies. Teens, adults, age matters? It doesn’t does it. Vintage theme takes you to an era and makes you feel oh, so young, and celebrated you could forget the hullabaloo of your busy daily rustic life for a while.
