Vintage Isn't Just For Grown-Ups

My daughter turns 5 this week. She is obsessed with all things cat related and requested a kitty themed party. I noticed a super cute pair of vintage cat figurines on Etsy one day which became the starting point for her party decor.

Here they are on top of her cake along with a homemade cake bunting. The cake is sitting on a Fenton milk glass cake plate that I borrowed from our Nostalgia inventory.

For table linens, I used store bought plastic tablecloths (it was a kid party, after all) and topped it with a "runner" made of layered vintage doilies. More figurines adorned the table. I used a vintage tiered candy dish to serve strawberries. I put some vintage fabric in an embroidery hoop and affixed a wooden "A" (my daughter's first initial) to it with double-sided tape. I love the embroidery hoop + vintage fabric combo -- I've seen it a lot in weddings lately.

I cut out cute little vintage kitty faces and glued them on the treat bags and used scrapbook paper to turn paper plates into kitty faces.

Vintage-themed kid parties are unique, unlike the out-of-the box party supplies available at discount stores. And they don't have to break the bank. We have lots and lots of kid-appropriate items in our inventory...

We have mini trikes and wagons (and full-sized trikes and wagons, too) that would be so cute for a birthday party or baby shower.

We have boxes and boxes of vintage tea cups, teapots, and tea party supplies. My daughter's third birthday party was a vintage dress up/tea party.

We have lots of ice cream parlor items, including these vintage ice cream cups (unused) and an ice cream parlor table and chair set (one of the chairs pictured above).

If you are interested in hosting a vintage-themed party for your little one, give us a call. We can help you find the perfect vintage props and craft a beautiful, timeless party!
