it is only a paper moon...





source: only a paper moon flickr



i've been hankerin' to throw a paper moon themed party. this type of prop styling had quite a long stretch! as early as the victorian era up until the 1940s, folks were hamming it up while perched on a theatrical moon. hmmm, maybe a 26th birthday party theme? i loves me a good themed party.

sounds like a brilliant theme, although it makes me think of that rubbish andrew lloyd webber program, as at the end they ride of on a moon!

but at the same time, it makes me think of florence, who i lvoe to pieces. great post xxx

Its funny, but it reminds me of one of my high school homecomings- we made a "paper moon" for pictures of the couples. Strange how something so sweet & vintage-y makes me think of the mid '80's. I think a party would be fabulous! And excuse me for being a ding-dong, but when did you all decide to go back South? Did I miss something? (Probably)

I've seen these a lot lately. I'm thinking it would be a great photo op at me + my fiance's October wedding. We'll see what he thinks... xo.
