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!
My twins of course! I made the dress and tie that they wore, and they were absolutely darling!
We had lots of treats, popcorn, old fashioned candy, cookies and a yummy lemon cake
Activities / Games
We played old fashioned games: sack races, cake walk, bean bag toss, tag and made newspaper hats.
My budget was $175 and this included the food, decorations and fabric that I used, including the fabric used to make the outfits for my twins.
I made little drawstring bags for each guest and filled with candy. I also made cupcakes and boxed them for guest to take home.
Seeing how happy my twin's were!
What People Ate
