Almost anyone who "worked" a bridal shower (that is, poured punch, or sat at the guest book, or picked up trays afterward)s ~ back in the 1960s (and before) wore hostess aprons to protect their pretty party dresses while they worked.
Typically day events, often held in church social halls, or homes of relatives ~ these wedding showers were planned for months in advance ~ ordering aprons, flowers, baking cakes, making mints, and of course decorating in the color scheme of the bride's choice.
This was for a bride who had blue as "her color".
This cute little apron is sheer white, and measures 14" long, 18" across the center front panel (that is 1 3/4" wide) and has tails to tie in back that are 22" long.
This has a lace circlet with a blue ribbon trimmed with a tiny frosty white bell (indicating this is for a bridal shower, rather than a graduation, where these aprons were also de riguer in the 60s.)
Bring back a wedding tradition ~ vintage aprons are the rage now ~ for wearing, for dressing up, for display, or to help create a memory, ala Mad Men era.
