During my interview with Idea Chic, this photo shoot was one of the first things to come up. The theme: Vintage Whimsical. My reaction: Do they put random adjectives in a hat, pull out two, and say “GOOD LUCK!” ? Yes. Yes, that’s exactly what they do. In fact, you can check out this video to see how the shoot was pulled off and the inspiration behind it.
Vintage is always a flexible term. In this case, rather than channel a specific decade, these party planner extraordinaires pulled from several decades, bringing back games and candy that my father (1960’s), grandmother (1940’s), and I (1980’s) all remember. This photo shoot was featured on Every Last Detail, and may inspire you to turn your wedding day into a new kind of throwback.
Julie went into her grandfather’s attic and found some old game boards and took the knife to them, creating one-of-a-kind vases that require a second look.
Rachel, from Intricate Icings, and Julie, designed this candy bar. Everything from the in-your-face cake to the Bingo bunting were made custom for this shoot.
Lastly, The Curtis Hotel helped inspire this concept. The front desk staff plays games with you, and they have plenty of bright candy, pop, and vintage games to keep you busy if you are unfortunate enough to come to Denver on one of our few rainy days. (Note: if you are in town visiting, each floor at The Curtis has a different theme. Go to the 13th floor for a psycho killer suprise)
