real parties: so very vintage

12.17.2009
You’ll fall in love with this vintage party that Clau hosted for her birthday last month. To create a vintage style, she started with a palette of pink and aqua blue, inspired by French pastry and period movies like Marie Antoinette. The dessert table used lace, antiques and ruffly pink flowers to showcase a spread of chocolate covered marshmallows, strawberry cupcakes and other petite sweets. The coffee station highlighted a backdrop of vintage photos and magazine spreads. And best of all, she set up a window curtain as the backdrop for a photo booth and set out silly props for her guests to wear. The photography of course is what brings this party together. It was Clau’s love of vintage photography that originated the theme, so she set the photos with a vintage tint to give lasting impact. Simple, chic and such fun.
