Mary's 50's Housewife Bridal Shower

I enjoyed flying solo (literally) last weekend when I went back to Wisconsin for Mary's bridal shower. The theme was "50's Housewife".

These invites went out at the end of March. (Contact info obviously blocked.)

We drank from mason jars and guessed how much different items cost in the 1950s. 


This shower made it so easy to come up with practical prizes and decorations that will be used beyond the event.

Wooden spoon centerpieces (went to each of the bridesmaids).  

Wash cloth party favors. 

Cleaning product prizes thanks to my cousin Bridget!

Nora was the youngest "housewife". 

And Simon was the only boy.   

Mary and her bridesmaids.

Our authentic 1950s housewife - Grandma Helen!

I loved seeing all of the different outfits that the ladies came up with!

My mom made all of our aprons.

All the housewives!

Thanks again to all of the bridesmaids for helping to pull this off! (And thanks again Bridget for the majority of these pictures!)

Next event: Mary and Andy's wedding!!!

I would love to get a PNG of your shower invitation so I can personalize it for a bridal shower we are doing. Do you share it or sell it? Thank you, Lynette
