About It's A Jaime Thing ...So Fitting For The Soon-To-Be Wife!
A retro fabulous bridal shower with Coca Cola, cherry pie, and pinups

Sure, times have changed. Much of what used to be tradition had gone out the window. Poof, gone! Just like that. However, nothing says we can't bring a little bit of it back, right? I mean, they do it all the time when it comes to fashion, so why not bring it home too?

If you're planning a bridal shower, this retro theme might just bring out the pinup housewife in all of you....

Consider serving cherry pie instead of cake and grab some Coca Cola inspiration from my friend Kim over at Head Of The Table. Or, customize your own bottles with Jones Soda! To personalize, use similar sayings like shown on the gift bags above or even upload vintage- themed photos to your bottle labels.

Thank your guests or pamper the bride with pretty little pinup style bath products from one of my favorite stores, Margarita Bloom!

When it comes time to decorate your shower space, mix your retro theme up with this unique turquoise and red Modern Kitchen Theme by Hostess With The Mostess!

I especially adore how serving utensils were used for the centerpieces - what a great idea! After the shower, let the bride take them home so she can work on becoming her own domestic diva self. Don't forget the apron!

Thanks for reading and happy planning, beauty girls! ~Jaime
