Ha! I bet I gotcha' with that title. Drew you right in didn't it? :) Just a little post today on the vintage party line. Everyone loves to attend a good party, from the food to the music, parties are a great time. One important feature can be the decorations since they can really set the mood for the party. They can liven up any party. I once was invited to a "tacky party"....... interpretation left up to the attendee. I made a platter of spam and cheese squares on vintage floral picks. They were a hit! Throwing a retro vintage party is a great way to celebrate a milestone party particularly for the big 40. Or how about a child that loves whistles and trains? Vintage party favors are the way to go. Remember the pink ballerinas from years past? What modern little girl of today wouldn't love a pink ballerina birthday cake. I recently was very lucky to run across a stash of "new old stock" party items, most in the original packages. Most of these can be found at OneLittleCandle.etsy.com or TheVintageNest.com.
What's not to love about pink? Particularly these vintage pleated crepe paper nut cups or my favorites, the waxed pink and white stripe baskets.
Check out this hostess Party Setting package. It says it's for the perfect hostess. It's a 40 piece ensemble that includes matches (love the fleur-de-lis design), coasters, napkins and drink stickers. This is from the 1960's. Absolutely love the Mod styling. What a great set to use at a lady's bridge or card party.
Perfect vintage charm.......whistles and pink ballerinas for the little ones.
How charming are these party toppers? Perfect for stacking cheeses and fruit or as cup cake toppers. The little red hatted ladies are spun cotton with hand painted features and have chenille arms.
And look at these adorable little pink bonnet girls. They are candle holders. Perfect cupcake toppers and keepsakes.
Life's a Party! Have fun!
