It's My Party and

wow, what a party it was.  Today I will post the decorations.  Then the guests and gifts.  If I did it all at once, you probably would need a glass of wine!

The theme was vintage......so into the hopechests I went and decorating began.



The party was held outside on our patio.  The color were mostly pink and aqua.


Everyone as a favor received a vintage pair of gloves with a tag with their name.  Each tag was different.


I  had old cameras and pictures of me throughout the years...


Hankerchief boxes, old curling irons...


Vintage teapot, my mom's crystal with candy and nuts....those are my cereal spoons and my mom's wedding tablecloth.


In the very center was this darling mason jar centerpiece my hubby got me from CB.


My old Tiny Tears doll, holding a vintage coin purse and my baby bracelet.


Old buttons, and my curlers when I was a toddler.  All the pictures were held up in flower frogs.


Another pair of my baby shoes....



My singer sewing machine table held more family momentos...



My cradle roll certificate from church and my hand print from Kindergarten.


This is one of my baby blankets....


 A colorful quilt for backdrop.


 My old school desk has my Kindergarten paint apron  inside are pics of my grandkids.


 The top held my Autograph books and a Life magazine from February 1954.


My boy doll on a chair from my SS class.... He is wearing a outfit my Aunt Esther made for my doll and the sweet hat is my hubby's....


On the food table was my mom's jewelry box filled with vintage jewelry and my baby ring in the card.

Oh, it was so pretty and I believe everyone enjoyed looking at all the "vintage stuff"!....

Till next time....

OMGosh, Ceekay!!! How wonderful everything is. I love all you have done for your party. What fun to have all those things from your childhood. How lucky you are. I don't have much from my childhood at all. I love that someone valued you enough to hold onto that stuff to pass it along- xo Diana

That is such a fun way to celebrate! I love all of the vintage goodies you were able to gather.

ImagiMeri said...

It's all so lovely, just like you. I'm so sorry I couldn't make it. Our garage sale was a success, with much decor out the door. I think I'll have enough room to put my mom's storage stuff in the garage now. Many happy returns, and I look forward to the coming pictures.

Big Birthday Hugs,
Meri
