This darling NINETEEN FORTIES SWEET SIXTEEN BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Anna Hogbin of Mama Bear’s Kitchen

.

What a fun theme for a sweet 16 party! I’m absolutely loving all of the fabulous and fun vintage ideas using ribbon and lace! For instance the cute banners and garlands and the fun lace and twine drink ties! This party is too cute and could not only work perfectly for a sweet 16th party, but a girl’s night out as well!

My favorite 1940’s Sweet Sixteen party ideas and elements from this fabulous birthday celebration are:

  • The darling cakes
  • The cute floral favor box tags
  • The cute lace ribbon and twine drink bottle and mason jar ties
  • The cute banners and bunting
  • The cute mason jars full of buttons and vintage items
  • The cute ladder with lace table covers and doilies draped across the bars
  • and MORE!

1940’s Sweet Sixteen Party Details:

This is what Anna said about planning the party- “Slap on the red Lippy, curl up the Victory rolls and get ready to swing!! This 16th birthday party was created for a dear friend who wanted to celebrate in style. Held outside in a wooded grove on the family farm, the area was decorated with old furniture and suitcases, lace buntings, vintage treasures and favourite children’s books chosen by the birthday girl.

The tea table was set with fine china in pastel colours and decorated with pretty cottage flowers. Shabby inspired favour boxes were placed at each setting with handmade name tags directing each guest to her seat. As a special Thank you, each favour box contained a cupcake and a vintage cake fork to take home.

All guests were encouraged to dress up in authentic 1940’s style. These lovely young ladies looked fabulous with their gorgeous vintage dresses, red lipstick and Victory rolls in their hair. One of my favourite features of the party was the inclusion of two adorable little bush maids dressed to serve tea and sandwiches to the guests. They took this role very seriously and loved having a special part to play serving their sisters and friends. Their amazing costumes were handmade by my teenage daughter from Alice’s Place.
An afternoon of croquet, badminton and swing dancing ensured that the party continued well into the day and a memorable time was had by all”.

    I just celebrated my sweet 16 last February! And I decided on a 1940’s theme too. I Wish I had seen this beforehand; it would have been great inspiration. Still, I loved every moment of my 1940s birthday, and have no regrets!
