Here’s what Feather said about the party- “I was extremely humbled when Gemma, the magazine editor of Party Style Magazine, contacted me to style a set up featuring cupcakes for their Cupcake Issue! It was exciting to be given free reign to style the set up as I desired. With my primary focus on Spring I titled the set up “Cupcake in Bloom.” I knew I needed bright colors and lots of flowers to make this set up ideal. I designed coordinating printables with bright floral topped cupcakes. Belles Sweets did a fantastic job on the decorated cupcake shaped cookies. Tunky Monkey’s Sweet Treats and Savvylicious Sweets created fun and gorgeously detailed cupcake shaped cake pops. Myour Stories contributed a bright colored rag tie banner which completed the table set up nicely. I had Crest Foods, a local bakery in Oklahoma City, decorate cupcakes with flowers to bring it all together. The cupcakes coordinated perfectly with the cupcake wraps from Cupcake with Character. I photographed and captured all the details of the set up and items from these wonderful vendors that also include items from Kara’s Party Ideas, Hobby Lobby and Michael’s. It was a fun and exciting set up to style!”

Here’s what Monica said about planning the party- “Easter Egg Hunts are not a Spanish tradition, but since we are a half American family, (my husband is from North Carolina) we introduced this holiday to our small town in Huesca. Ever since my oldest son Kevin (11 years old now) was small we have been celebrating this lovely holiday with our friends. This year I was inspired from the little bunnies I found in a store (Deco Palace) in Zaragoza, and I thought it would be nice to make the bunny house the focal point of the table. Using my kid’s doll house I built some planters for it and filled them with flowers that are available in our garden now, the muscaris, and from there everything came easy. It was really fun to style it, and even more fun to have our friends over again!!”
This stunning EASTER THEMED VINTAGE BAKE SALE PARTY was submitted by Mandy McCready of Koko Blush & Company.
Looking at this party is making me wonder what country or planet I can move to where they celebrate Easter sooner than next March because I am absolutely dying over every detail and thinking I’m going to have to throw an Easter party. Now. Such a beautiful celebration!
Some of the stellar details to look out for in this vintage Easter party are:
The assorted vintage milk glass stands used to display the candy, favors and cakes
The children playing croquet as a party activity
The idea of the dessert display being a “bake sale”
