This sweet VINTAGE COWGIRL FIFTH BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Jesi Celeita of Dolce Designs.
This shabby chic party is so sweet and has tons of fun ideas! A few of the highlights to look for are:
The birthday girl’s name written in rope
The cookies shaped and decorated to look like cowgirl boots
The burlap, lace and fabric rosettes used as a simple cake topper and also secured to the tops of the milk bottles and apothecary jars
This is what Jesi said about planning the party- “This was a birthday dessert table I made for a little cowgirl named Kelsey who was turning 5. I made the wood art piece with her name, the cupcake wrappers and toppers, all the fabric and paper flowers, the fabric garland, tablecloth, and burlap and wood frame. I also made the cowgirl cookies, macarons, cupcakes, s’more pops, and ruffle cake. The white shelf I found at an antique mall as well as the cute pink antique plates. This is by far my favorite theme and I was thrilled when Kelsey’s mom picked it!”
A few highlights to look for in this woodland party are:
The treat cones made from paper doilies
The wooden bird house painting party activity
The animal mask party favors
The three dimensional paper butterfly backdrop
The cake decorated to look like a tree stump
Susanne said this about planning the party- “For my daughter’s 8th birthday, we went with a woodland theme. We chose pink and brown as the main colors. I had a lot of fun making the cake (and working with fondant for the first time!). For the party favors, each girl took home a journal and twig pencil as well as a home made sleeping mask featuring different woodland animals. Activities included painting bird houses and playing “cocoon wrap”, which was my daughter’s woodland version of the Halloween game, “mummy wrap”. The treat table included fruity fairy wands, meringue mushrooms, toadstool cupcakes, squirrel mix, acorn cookies, wafer sticks, and hedgehog doughnuts.”
