Dating vintage tablecloths
We used the covered patio space and backyard area at my parent’s house (hey, remember when we lived down there?? My mom does such a great job with her yard – late May was the perfect time to have an outdoor bridal shower.
My mom dug lots of vintage tablecloths from her attic (all hand-embroidered by family members).
However, if you want to find a place for it in your home, there are many projects that can put old linens to new uses.

The dividers by the propane tanks were secured with lots and lots of fishing wire – which ended up snapping!!
We all pitched in at and were tying things up/securing things down…but it was a little stressful.
I had another (bigger) handmade rolled bookpage wreath hanging on the window: All of the china we used was from my mom’s grandparents – it was the perfect touch to the whole vintage theme!We were running around trying to dry them in the sun or the dryer inside…it was kind of a mess.We ended up ditching a lot of the linens just because they were actually dripping water.I guess that’s just what happens with outdoor events – there’s always such an unpredictable element! And now that the shower’s done – it’s time to think about doing the finishing touches for the wedding!
