Let's Talk Vintage Linky Party # 3 - Using Vintage To Decorate a Banquet

Welcome to my third "Let's Talk Vintage Linky Party!"


Last week was a busy one! My creative skills were called upon to decorate a dinner banquet at Bebe's school.

My mission: Decorate in a patriotic theme... and more specifically include one of the most famous documents in our nation's history.

I was up for the challenge.

 
As always, I include vintage pieces.
 

 
Some of the items were from the staff
at the school. We emailed and asked if
anyone had the items I requested on my list.
 
The pitcher seen here holding the flags
is from my BellaRosaAntiques.com shop.
It has a pretty pink rose on it but I wrapped
some burlap and ribbon around the vase to
cover it... didn't want it to look too "shabby chic!"
 
 
A teacher lent me his reproduction of the
very famous signed document, the Constitution.
 
 
I printed this one from the internet.
Each guest was given a bookmark
as a party favor. The statue of Liberty
is from my own collection at home.
 
 
I found the feathers at our local craft store and added
 the "we the people" tags using parchment paper
from my resume stash. Yes, I actually used
to use parchment style paper for my resume!
 
This dinner d├ęcor really came together with
all of the right pieces... I was happy things
fell into place as I had a busy week planned.
 

 
The antique eye glasses are
from my bookshelf display...
the old Bibles were from
my hubby's collection.
 
I find it fun pulling pieces
from different sources...
and watching it take shape!

totally retro cool!
 
 
And over at Adirondack Girl at Heart

Amazing!
