Vintage Post Cards

In vogue for summer celebrations, are vintage post cards. We recreated a variety of these antiques for a recent Pasella shoot (either to be broadcasted this week or next week). For the shoot we used them as seating cards combined with table gifts (and of course they do look stunning on a table), tied together with postage cord and a tiny tag. Oh so beautiful!

Over time, we have built up quite a phenomenal library of vintage images, from old fashioned brides and grooms photographed in the 1920's, to hand painted birds, dainty ballerina's and my favourte, the Eiffel Tower!



These post cards can be used as part of your table seating, having a dual purpose, both as a decorative table gift as well as a place card.


For a wedding Save the Date, these old fashioned brides and grooms are divine and will really give your guests something to talk about!


The post cards are very inexpensive and when you do several images, all your guests are likely to converse about their various images.
The possibilities with these vintage beauties are limitless, they can be used for Save the Dates, a menu, table seating, table gifts etc.

Another great idea is to have a stamp made at your local stationer. Which you can use for your Save the Dates or menus. Alternating between large and the small fonts, to create a playful effect.
