Journeys around the world would be impossible without vehicles! So, it was a brilliant idea by Kathy Campbell to focus on this indispensable part of traveling “around the world”, when she designed her entry for the 2016 Tabletop WOW competition by NACE, Detroit.  Perfect for a vintage travel theme wedding or party, here are some great photos.

The table setting was neat, uncluttered and classic. However, the highlight of the display was that all the transportation vehicles on the tablecloths were actually hand painted. Take a closer look to see how charming it was!

Travel Theme Party IdeasThe glassware at each place setting doubles up as display pieces that house vintage ticket rolls. These pretty details add a pop of color to the setting, and enhance the theme. Clusters of purple and blue hydrangea form simple but beautiful floral centerpieces at this setting.

Elegant Table SettingThe silver and white in the arrangement forms an elegant combination, as we can see in this picture. The China on the table is opulent and arranged beautifully. The service plate has silver beads along the trim, while the embellished dinner plate and tea cups look stunning next to it.

Hand Painted TableclothsHand painted vehicles on the table cover, like this steam boat, add vintage flair to the arrangement.

The muted colors and characters in the image effectively transport us to a bygone era; a time when traveling was an exciting and dangerous prospect than it is today. This display also highlights the central quote used throughout the setting.

When our very own Christine of Cool Party Favors decided to give favors, you can bet that she did it in a creative way.  She combined her favors and centerpieces by placing a cute rosary inside of cake boxes.  These cake boxes were the foundation of the centerpieces which started with a round base.  The first centerpiece was for a baptism.


After locating some inexpensive white cake boxes online, she created layers and tied them with ribbon and floral decorations from Michael’s.  The ribbon not only served as a decoration, but kept the boxes in place.  She used a cross topper to finish the centerpiece.

Inside of the cake boxes she placed some of our mini rosary favors.

Here is one of the centerpieces that Christine created for a communion.  She used square cake boxes which were easier to arrange and placed them in layers.  Once again, Chris used ribbon to decorate the boxes as well as hold them in place.  Floral decorations were placed at the side of each layer and a photo frame with the guest of honors image topped off the cake.


Inside of the boxes, Chris put these communion rosary favors.  They come assembled.
