It’s no secret I’m a fan of retro design and decor.  The 1950s and early 60s in particular (also know as the Mad Men era!) is a favorite, impeccably cool.  It is all bright colors, sleek lines and minimalist style and I’m loving the come-back it is making into wedding decor.

One of the easiest ways to bring mid-century modern style into your wedding is with bold geometric accents.  A simple white cake can be transformed with cost-effective brightly colored wooden shapes.

Bold patterns & clever design can transform simple materials into an expensive looking statement piece. The square and diamond pattern creates a second set of round edge squares within the larger design. You’ll love how easy and cost-effective it is to create this dessert table backdrop.  Find out how HERE.

Select an era-appropriate color palette. Cool blue tones pop against rich sunburst yellow and orange.  Incorporate classic mid-century design elements like starbursts & sputniks and a dash of modern; acrylic drink stirrers, table numbers and elegant gold tableware.

The tablescape pops against a backdrop of mid-century furniture, I just know you are going to love every single detail as much as I do!
