vintage vogue covers

I hosted a ‘Roaring Twenties’ birthday party last year and in my search for decor ideas I stumbled upon the Vogue (UK) magazine cover archive. This is the bees knees! I felt like I’d hit the jackpot! Not only is the archive a fascinating glimpse into the fashion, art and voice of my favourite era, but the magazine covers made for beautiful arty posters that helped set the tone for the party.

I’ve actually still got my favourites in frames (I was able to blow them up to A3 size) and they look fantastic on the wall!  Here’s a little collage. I love the shapes and colours of the art deco inspired pieces. I start a painting class next week so they serve as artistic inspiration.

Vintage Wedding Cake Toppers

I LOVE this vintage cake topper spread picture from the Project Wedding website! The cakes are adorable and blend perfectly with the old-school cake toppers.

You can find loads of affordable vintage cake toppers on Etsy (in the vintage section) or on ebay.

There’s also the Fancy Flours website, which has a collectibles range spanning the 1920’s – 1950’s (prices are generally $100+), but they’re down right adorable. Here are some of my favs…

1920s…

This one is inspired by the popular Kewpie Doll of the early 1900’s. Groom looks very suave.

Love the bride’s dress, veil and rosy cheeks – and the finger wave details in the hair.

1930s…


1940s…


This very rare piece is made of royal icing! Taste test anyone?

1950s…

Aren’t they adorable?
