I am in love with this VINTAGE STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Nazra Knutsen. So many adorable ideas here!

Nazra said- “My sister, Kennedi, & I wanted to throw a combined party for our daughters, Ella & Mia, whose birthdays are a month a part from each other. Both the girls love Strawberry Shortcake…so we started our party planning with a “Vintage Strawberry Shortcake” theme in mind. I was so excited when I found all the adorable vintage strawberry & Strawberry Shortcake trays, lunch boxes, & tins to include in the decor! We “DIY’d” the pretty garland, hanging strawberries, jam for favor’s, & flower arrangements. Everything came together so perfectly! The birthday girls loved all the strawberries everywhere & had so much fun celebrating their birthdays with all their little friends. One fun element that you can’t see in the photos is that we had strawberry candles lit so when the guests walked into the house, it smelled liked strawberries! Yum!

We want to say a special ‘thanks’ to our other sister, Naomi, & our mom, for helping run errands, picking up stuff for us, & for helping make the jam, garland, & the hanging strawberries! Also, special ‘thanks’ to Jenny from Jenny Cookies for all the ‘berry sweet’ & adorable treats & perfect cakes she made to compliment the theme of the party!”

    I have an Ella and my sister has a Mia too :-) Absolutely gorgeous party. Brings back my own memories of a strawberry shortcake party my mum threw me back in the early 80′s. I absolutely love The vintage tins and lunch boxes you’ve found.

    i would absolutely love to win one of your book giveaways. I have 3 daughters who LOVE having parties and trying to “produce” the perfect party is not always easy. Your book is a wealth of information and inspiration!!

    Happened upon your blog and I absolutely LOVE your style! I had a small Strawberry Shortcake obsession when I was young, so this would have been my DREAM PARTY! You’re so talented and creative!
