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.
Easter chocolates and candy are not just for little kids (1950’s).
It’s important at any age to don your best dress for the Easter festivities. Aren’t these 2 girls just adorable?
Bunnies as presents (only a good idea if approved first), circa 1930’s.
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.
How about Kitschy items for your table? Like this 1950’s Swedish Table Runner.
A 1930’s Bobble Head Bunny planter makes perfect sense when wanting to add a touch of fun to the decor.
Every egg needs a place to rest before being gobbled up.
The Look: Gentlemen do you need a tie for your weekend activities? Then look no further than Wembley Ties (1954).
Need other tie options? How about Easy Tint Ties (1947)?
The men are all set, now ladies what will you wear? Maybe one of the pretty dresses pictured below?
Matchy Matchy so you don’t lose each other in the Easter parade (I would assume).
For those who like to adorn their outfits with kitschy brooches, then this vintage style carrot is perfect.
If you are wearing a carrot brooch then you really do need earrings to match. Like these super adorable 1940’s/50’s flocked bunny earrings pictured below.
Don’t forget the Easter Bonnets! 1928 Ad.
Chocolates and a hat..Oh My!
Cards are always a big part of this time of year, as American Greetings reminds us in 1949.
I tend to like to give out funny cards to family and friends and I know my hubby does too. Here is one from the 1950’s I just know I would end up with from the mister.
Have a wonderful Easter Weekend friends!
