Vintage-Inspired First Birthday

My baby girl turned one this weekend, and in honor of the occasion, we threw a sweet, simple vintage-inspired birthday party. Let's be honest, this party was more for me since she's still so small, so I decided to go girly, girly, girly in case she's not into that as she gets older.

Around February, I started looking at Pinterest for birthday party ideas (originally thinking we might do something Minnie Mouse-themed) when I can across a little girl's tea party and was hooked. I loved the idea of getting to use my great-grandmother's china and serving lighter fare for party food. I thankfully already had a lot of the decor items, and found some great stuff at Dollar Tree, Amazon and on clearance at Target. I also did a few DIYs to complete the look.



The details:



Designed by me! (Don't want to make your own? Etsy has tons of amazing options)

My grandmother, myself and now Aubrey have worn it.) 





I plan to post some DIYs from the party in the next couple of days...so, stayed tuned!

  1. The party seemed amazing with those lovely decorations. It was nice of you to share the details of the party arrangements with us. I’m also planning a party for my son’s birthday next week. I’m not a huge fan of house parties as I feel like it’s too much work. So I’ve booked a suitable party space at one of the venues in Los Angeles for the birthday celebrations.
