“This nostalgically curated workshop was created to bring a Vintage 1940’s Birthday party to life!
The Birthday parties of an era gone by are so magical. The simplicity of decorating with twirled crepe paper streamers, balloons you actually blow up and paper hats and party horns pristinely placed on the dining room table is a lost art. This was a time when your child’s guest list wasn’t narrowed to a specific gender or limited to a particular group of kids instead the party guest were your siblings, your neighbors and your cousins. The best part of this celebration was your mom making all your favorite treats for the big day!
Styled-It workshops are interactive party planning classes . Workshops are structured where all attendees participate in putting together an event including the décor, food staging, creating backdrops, tablescaping and even room transformations! Once the event is completed all attends get to be guest at the finished event. For this special workshop we invited moms to bring their children in order to stage a realistic vintage Birthday Party. Our model/moms and their gorgeous children were outfitted in period clothing and hair styles and hair accessories were beautifully styled by Martiza Buelvas. Our fabulous photographer Julie Riddle captured the feel of a birthday party from years ago.
We started this workshop by transforming a modern space into a 1940’s dining room by hanging vintage fringed window treatments over the drapes, adding an round antique pedestal table outfitted with a pink vintage radio was perfect for our candy and ice cream station. Old ornate framed art work and the use of lace overlays on the tables took us to a time and place where celebrations were simple and sweet.
Our Party décor included attaching assorted color crepe paper streamers from the center of the hanging chandelier to all 4 corners of the table. Multi colored balloons simply hung from the chandelier created a festive Birthday party ambiance!
The party table was set with antique looking plates, embellished paper party hats and horns at each place setting. Chocolate milk was served in square French milk bottles delicately tied with colorful twine. Vintage toys- kaleidoscopes, sling shots and wooden yo-yo’s were displayed on the party table as well.
A traditional round birthday cake accented with icing flowers and sprinkles on the sides was displayed on a gold and pink pedestal at the center of the table. Simply decorated cupcakes were adorned with sprinkles and small paper flowers.
Ice cream cones were set on a stand in anticipation of cones to be filled with real strawberry ice cream!
The children enjoyed a birthday lunch of hotdogs and potato chips followed by cake and ice cream and a turn at the treat table where they filled their bags with button candy, rock candy, big colorful gumballs and everyone’s favorite circus peanuts!
Party favors we kept simple using a brown paper bags with a doily folded over and attaching a hole punched tag with each child initials, bags were filled with yo-yo’s, tops and rubber balls”!
