From Melissa Strukel of Pow Wow Vintage Rentals… This vintage boudoir bridal shower was inspired by my collection of 1950’s Playboy Magazines. I adore the hairstyles, makeup and colors of that era, and I knew I had some pieces in my inventory that would lend themselves to this specific look. I set out to create a candy colored vibe against the backdrop of a grassy palm grove, and with the help of many talented ladies (and a very nice policeman), we got the job done. I can’t get over how much fun it was to work with everyone and am filled with gratitude for all of their hard work.
