50s housewife bridal shower

Susan, of Susan Sabo Photography, explained, "[My daughter's] friend had the most awesome bridal shower last week, it was '50s housewife-themed, decorated to the nines by her friends." The moment her daughter told her about it, she volunteered to shoot it. And thank gawd she did because it looked amazing.

The centerpieces kill me! Simple flowers next to a framed pinup photo really set up the whole sexy, girly, good-times mood.

50s housewife bridal showerIt looks like they asked everyone to bring a recipe to share with the bride, which is a perfect idea for this shower theme. The favors were wooden mixing spoons. I wouldn't mind pretending I'd know what to do with that spoon if it got me one of those yummy cupcakes!

Speaking of food, I love how they broke out all their mid-century-style home goods; like those old Coco Cola cups, the tiered serving tray, and the vintage Baking Soda boxes. Also, you GOTTA serve deviled eggs and make sure to have toothpicks in ALL your appetizers.

But we all know you're gonna throw this shower for the fashion! Look at all those amazing colors and styles with the combination of '50s housewife dresses …

… and adorable aprons …

… and awesome ink!

Now THAT is a shower that I would actually enjoy attending. Ladies: steal this idea (and then invite me, and feed me cupcakes)! If you ARE thinking about throwing a '50s housewife shower, head over my guest post on MyWedding.com for more inspiration and party ideas.
