A Vintage Aqua & Coral Wedding Shower

We've fallen (far) behind on sharing the details of various events we have styled and provided vintage rentals for -- so we're playing some catch-up with a series of Throwback Thursday features!

First up: Anna's wedding shower from June 2013.

We had a blast working with Anna's sister and MOH, Jaime, plus her mother, Julie, in pulling all the details together. We took a cue from the adorable shower invitations Jaime purchased on Etsy and went with a coral and aqua blue color scheme paired with classic white.

Centerpieces featured our milk glass cake stands (teardop, hobnail, and gold leaf) for height, a china dinner plate for a little more interest, and a grouping of eclectic vases (milk glass, pink depression glass, blue medicine bottles, or one of our "Love" soda bottles). We surrounded each cake stand with our jello tin votives and striped clear votives.

We love using our jello tins as votives -- the tin doesn't get hot to the touch at all (it's cooler than the glass votives, actually!) And when you pop the candles out, they melt to form the jello mold -- so they're sort of flower shaped!

Guest enjoyed mimosas served in our Exeter drink dispenser, which we propped up on a plain wooden crate. A cluster of blue medicine bottles and milk glass vases plus a zinc lantern finished off the look. The heart-shaped jello mold was used to catch any drips from the dispenser!

The shower spread was delicious and full of vintage style, too!

Our favorite detail? The scrumptious cake pops, which we displayed in two of our small cheese boxes and our sewing drawers! We cut down floral foam and covered it with faux moss, then stuck the cake pops in. So cute!

Other pieces used in the food display include our set of blue cake stands, large milk glass pedestal bowl, and a vintage camera.

Overall, it was a lovely day in honor of a lovely bride!
