I just love this TOY SHOP THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Nicky Sheppard of Sweet Details. The navy blue, red and white color scheme is darling. And look at how cute the toy drum cake is!
Here is what Nicky had to say about the party- “This ‘Toy Shop’ party was inspired by vintage and classic toys. I wanted to use traditional colours to unite this theme. The toy theme was carried through to the food – so, for example, meringue kisses became spinning tops and whoopie pies became yo-yo’s.”

And my next fabulous party feature goes to this darling VINTAGE DICK & JANE TWIN PARTY submitted by Mariah Leeson ofGiggles Galore. Okay, I am dying here…how CUTE is this?! Oh, I just adore this party. The vintage toys, the banners, the cupcake toppers, the games, the hats, the food…ALL of it! Eeek!
Here is what Mariah said about the party- “My twin’s turned 3 and I wanted to celebrate their sweet personalities with an old fashioned, vintage birthday party. I was inspired by my mom’s vintage copy of the Dick and Jane early reader books and set out to create a party reminiscent of that time. I designed and created the party around vintage inspired fabric I found and made everything from the backdrop and party favors to my twin’s outfits. I enlisted the help of my friend and designer at Sweet Sosbee Designs to help bring the invitation and other printable details to life. I used vintage toys and games to tie everything together. The kids had fun playing simple old fashioned games like bean bag toss, sack races, tag and a cake walk.
We served individual lunch boxes with simple PB&J sandwiches, potato chips in custom made wax bags and an orange. My mom made a gorgeous cake and there were lots of other sweet treats to enjoy.
This vintage old fashioned birthday was truly a labor of love and our twin’s had a blast celebrating their special day!”
