So Charming!

What's It Wednesday #167
We are quickly approaching June, the month of so many weddings that it gives Valentine’s Day a run for its money when it comes to love and romance.

But before the big day arrives, there are all those bridal showers and wedding parties. An old tradition that’s making its way back, are cake charms, and they’re just perfect for the occasion!

From the late 1800’s through the 1930’s socializing parties were very popular and many charms and fortunes dealing with romance and predicting a mate were incorporated into parties.

The charm is placed within the cake and a ribbon is attached for pulling. (I added a little bling to help the guest along!) Each draw has a different meaning. You might want to type out the meaning and attach it along with the charm. It’s a fun party favor and sweet memento of the event.

Some familiar charms are the baby carriage, heart for new romance, wedding bells, horseshoe for luck, a ship for travel and of course the proverbial “old maid”!

I’ve been collecting them whenever I run across them.

Many are still on their original cards or in boxed sets. My favorites are going into my latest project that I’m just TOO excited about, so be sure to come back and check it out!
Hugs,
Patti
