Ashleigh’s 5th Vintage Birthday Party

A vintage birthday party

To celebrate her 5th birthday, Ashleigh enjoyed a pretty vintage birthday party at home with her friends.

We styled the event using bright and soft pinks, highlighted with fresh blooms, floral patterns and pastel accents. There was a vintage tablecloth embroided in shades of pink and green and an array of decanters and bottles filled with pink, white and cream and roses; blue irises; and pink daisies. There were also honeycomb balls (from Poppies for Grace) in hot pink, blush and apricot as well as our bunting made from vintage fabrics to help bring out the vintage and pink theme.

The menu included sweet treats like lamingtons, cupcakes, rocky road, homemade scones with jam & cream, fresh strawberries and the kids party stalwart, fairy bread! Each element sat prettily on our tiered cake stands, glass cake stands and handled plates.

And the adults weren’t forgotten with a tea station featuring our Old Country Roses teapot, an assortment of our prettiest fine bone china teacup trios and vintage silver cake forks.

But the most impressive dish on the table was the gorgeous cake made lovingly (and skilfully!) by Ashleigh’s mum, Joanne. What a beauty!
