Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue....
An old English rhyme has led to a tradition for many brides, even in this day! These four sweet tokens can be found by the bride herself, but are
more often given by her bridesmaids, sisters or mother. Each memento may have special meaning to the bride. Traditional items often worn or carried by the bride are jewelry or hankies.
But wouldn’t it be fun to create a shower or wedding gift based on this traditional theme?
For example,fill a decorative box or basket with a vintage tablecloth, a set of new cloth napkins, a favorite cookie recipe you are willing to “lend” to the bride, and a blue plate to serve them on.
Or for the bedroom, pair a vintage set of linen sheets and pillowcases, a new sweet-smelling candle, and a book of poetry from your own bookshelf.
Finally, consider packing a picnic basket for a romantic outing.
A vintage plaid blanket nestling a small vintage silver tray and set of decorative paper plates, napkins and glasses, along with a “borrowed” list of your own fun places to explore in your neck of the woods, will surely be fitting for any menu the bride and groom prepare for an afternoon getaway.
Chickadee Vintage has an amazing inventory of vintage silver plate, china,serving pieces, bedding, blankets and so much more.
Grab a cup of coffee, then sit back and enjoy your quest for the perfect gift.
Make it unique. Make it beautiful. Make if fun. You can be assured your ”something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” themed gift will be treasured and remembered by all!
