Here is a throwback alert of 6 retro-inspired pastel registry finds, from Brides:

Modern couples know there are no rules when it comes to decorating your first home. While fine china and silver flatware will always be classic, don’t be afraid to redefine the typical wedding registry.

One cool trend to try? Nostalgic pastel picks that bring the 1950s back in a whole new way. Appliances large and small are popping up in retro tones of mint green, lilac, rose, and powder blue, just like your Grandpa’s classic car. So when it comes to your kitchen registry, look for inspiration in your favorite old TV shows, your standby party dress, and even the spring bridal runways, where the abundance of colorful dresses in our favorite designers’ collections proved that standby white isn’t the only wedding-worthy shade.

Some of our favorite throwback finds include a Pistachio green kitchen mixer. (After all, who decided it has to be silver?) Also, consider replacing white linens with mint or green options in a bold, geometric pattern for a dose of nostalgic flare.

From a colorful take on the classic tea set to a cake stand in petal pink, whimsy vintage-inspired finds will instantly elevate your kitchen — and become talking points at your first dinner party as newlyweds.
