Lucy's {Vintage Cupcake Party}

I had the most fun planning this party for Lucy.  
A friend had given her the cupcake dress, so I went from there.  
I loved the idea of a {vintage} style party, so I tried my best to pull in lots of vintage inspiration.

I used lots of cake plates and milk glass pieces to add to the look...

I made all the cupcakes {lemon, strawberry, and chocolate!}, and found these darling white ruffled cupcake papers which added to the vintage feel I was going for...

Antique pink roses in small green glasses, strawberries and grapes piled high....

The {sweet shoppe} was a huge hit.  Apothecary jars filled with lots of goodies...
Candy Necklaces, Marshmallow Ropes, Tootsie Rolls (Lucy's fav!)
Kisses, Fruity Pops, and Strawberry & Chocolate Whoppers!

For the place settings for each girl, I used these antique class plates, with a small Kerr jar with a grey and white striped paper straw...and my Mom made these darling little place cards.

LOTS of tissue flower poms added so much color and whimsy!

Mason {Kerr} jars were used for the pink Lemonade and Iced Tea with vintage paper straws fround on Etsy.  I also made water bottle labels that said "Happy Birthday Lucy".
I put the lemonade jar on a OLD stool I had that was Toby's Great Great Grandfather's.

I LOVE the way this party turned out.  I had been planning this day for so long, and I really feel like it came together exactly how I wanted!!
