IW: 50s Housewife Bridal Shower Ideas

Hi friends. Happy Wednesday! For today’s inspiration board, I’m sharing some cute ideas for a retro ’50s housewife bridal shower theme.


1. Retro InvitationsΒ 2. Retro Ladies with Props 3. Red and Turquoise Table Setting 4. Red and Turquoise Cupcakes 5. Tub of Coke Bottles 6. Retro Apron 7. Red and Turquoise Recipe Cards 8. Red polka dot cupcake wrappers 9. Retro Housewife Marriage Advice Card.

Ask everyone to dress up in their ’50s outfits or bring props to make it fun for everyone. Here they’ve got velcro rollers, cat eye glasses and big pearls. Don’t forget the aprons! Continue the theme throughout with red and turquoise table settings. You can use kitchen utensils for accents or centerpieces too. Retro coke bottles and polka dotted cupcake wrappers add a special touch to the buffet. Recipe cards that match your theme as well as a retro marriage advice card are good activities for guests, plus they make for useful and cute keepsakes for the bride-to-be. Check out the Anne Taintor website for funny retro housewife napkins and favor ideas (like nail files, glasses, tote bags, etc). Isn’t it a cute theme?
