I love to wander the aisles of a library or bookstore, it seems like on every trip I always come back with something interesting. This time I found a book at the library called “Orange Crate Art – The Story of the Labels that Launched a Golden Era”, by John Salkin and Laurie Gordon, with dozens of original vintage crate label designs. These are perfect for an outdoor Summer wedding! I envision a beautiful wedding in California using these pretties:

You can find this book at most libraries and also here.

    Love this idea, We am having a vintage/chinese themed wedding next summer and these inspired me to look up some old vintage chinese firecraker posters. The ones I found are great but i am not sure what to do with them, and how to encorporate them into the wedding, Does anyone have any ideas??

    Love it! I'm from Redlands - they sell these designs all over. Never thought of using them as part of anything wedding related, but I'll now consider!

    These would be fantastic wedding decor! A vintage grove theme would be so whimsical! I smell mimosas!
