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.





We also played Pin the Cherry on the Cupcake!  I made this out of felt, and put a little velcro on the cherries.




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!!

Our little "cupcake" loved it too!

  18. I get excited everytime I hear celebrations, which include cupcakes and candies. Maybe I'm too old for this, but I can't help myself from craving sweets. Next week, we will celebrate Diana's birthday (my lil' sistah). Her birthday's theme is Power Puff Girls, and she also loves sweets. My mom expects that many visitors will come to my sistah's birthday. So yesterday, she looked for affordable tent rentals. Sacramento, our hometown has a lot of trustworthy tent rental services. So my worries, and of my mom are lessened.
