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 décor 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!
And now, without further ado,
Let's Talk Vintage!
I'm featuring a couple of bloggers
from last week's shindig:
Melissa shared her Pyrex finds...
totally retro cool!
And over at Adirondack Girl at Heart
we saw a FABULOUS pair
of robin's egg blue ice skates!
Now it is your turn!
