1920s Vintage Glamour

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.
