Spring Garden Inspiration

Looking for inspiration for your Spring decor and party themes?
Look no further....

The darling and VERY talented Monique outdid herself with the front entrance vignette at The Vintage Marketplace Show!
She hauled in all of this stuff from her house - it's all HERS, not for sale -
and styled this charming garden scene for everyone to ogle, photograph, and enjoy at the show.

Just take a gander at the glorious garden she created:
That's Miss Monique working on final details - in platform shoes, no less!
The main scene in the vignette is the giant window backdrop, bookended by regal vintage columns.
A porch swing hangs from the overhead architecture,
and garden plants and accessories bring a perfect garden to life...
Above,  more details of the main scene
To the left of the main scene, a small table and chairs create a perfect tete a' tete setting,
propped and ready for afternoon tea... right down to the dress and parasol!
A closer look...
Closer to the front on the left are more charming details:
A large birdcage with a flowering plant inside sits on a table covered with a tutu!
A vintage white bicycle's basket is filled with moss, a tutu, and garden accessories.
To the right of the main scene, a mirrored vanity is propped with vintage prom dresses and accessories.
The tiny dressing chair has a tutu cushion, and a bitsy birdcage sheltering a tiny chandelier ornament!

I shot these images in 2014... Update for 2016:

Do you love vintage-style decorating?

Don't miss this beautiful vintage show, held each season in Southern California!
