Easter is this weekend (mmmm chocolate) so for today’s post I wanted to do a roundup of all things that fall under the category, “Vintage Easter”. This will include photos,ads, kitschy vintage Easter items for sale and anything else I can find. Of course it’s all from the 1920’s to the 1960’s because as you know, I just love those time periods.

Let the Easter Fun Begin!

What used to be an annual tradition in Toronto was the Easter Parade. Here is an image from 1924 of stylish Torontonians walking past the Sunnyside Pavilion. Even all bundled up the women still look incredibly elegant.

You know you have been a good girl when you get to pick something up for Easter BEFORE Easter (1950’s). On a side note, I believe I own a similar purse that the lady looking at the camera is holding.

A big part of Easter is all the wonderful foods that are served when the family gets together. Good thing it was a popular to post ads with recipes to help boost sales of products. Here are a couple of cake recipes to help make your Easter a bit more vintage.

  1. Oh my gosh, that hat on the Whitman’s Chocolates ad! That is so incredible! That’s definitely going on my hats inspiration board on Pinterest. xx

  2. So fun! Now you have my re-evaluating my ensemble for Sunday’s service. Odd to think that Doris Day in that top pic is still going strong. From glittery carrots to fun ties to Sunnyside Pavillion, you’ve done it again.
