The 1920s have an almost mythical feel – speakeasies, flappers, prohibition and gangsters. So what better era would there be for a glitter and glam shoot? Today’s Inspired Creations Contest concept from Allison Barnhill Designs, Elizabeth Ryan Photography, Intrigue Design & Decor, and Up Do’s for I Do’s brings the glamour of the past to life. Ridgely, Maryland has a historic train caboose in town – the perfect setting and an iconic detail from the era. Vintage china and tea cups, an antique watch and engagement ring, and a fabulous brooch bouquet are just a few of the little touches that bring the romance of the Roaring Twenties to life.
All of the paper pieces had a special quote that was handpicked for each item. For example, the menu, “life is uncertain, eat dessert first”, which had the menu items in reverse order – with dessert first, of course! Rhinestone accents on the stationery add a touch of sparkle.
