This delightful HONEST ABE 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Marla Michau of The Merry Thought.
This is such a creative party theme. I love all of the copper and brass; it gives it such a fun and old time feel like you were a part of Abraham Lincoln’s time.
My favorite Honest Abe party ideas and elements from this birthday bash are:
- The awesome honest sign made out of pennies and silhouette
- The brass dishes
- The hanging parchment paper signs hung with wire and wooden dowels
- The old furniture
- The Abraham Lincoln shirt
- The copper cans with flowers
- The glass cream soda bottles
- The happy birthday cake banner
- and MORE!
This is what Marla said about planning the party- “For my little Abe I couldn’t resist the ‘Honest Abe’ theme once it crossed my mind. Abraham Lincoln has some fantastic quotes so we used that along with the color copper as inspiration for decorating. I used an iron on transfer to make the Honest Abe shirt. We painted wooden utensils with copper paint and spray painted cans to go along with the copper color theme. We pulled out a vintage table and butter churner for the desserts and drinks and decorated with vintage books and copper accessories. We used copper wire and wooden dowels to hang the Lincoln quotes. Our parties are always a family affair. Abe’s Uncle Mike crafted this amazing copper cake stand for the party and I love the tiny silhouette cake topper Auntie Manda made! She also made the delicious ‘White Out’ white chocolate cake and little top hat cookies. My niece Caitlin spray painted the letters copper and hot glued pennies on for the Hones t backdrop. She also painted the wooden silhouette.”
