REAL Party: Vintage Toy Party

I am so super excited to finally show off this REAL party!  
I am in love with all of the details, and thrilled with how
Courtney Vickers Photography captured everything!
This Vintage Toy party was inspired by the Dick and Jane storybooks, and of course, all of the fun they used to have. I think even Dick and Jane would have been excited to attend this party...So hold on, there are lots of details to see!

How about this super fun centerpiece!?! Most of the toys you will see were found at Target in their amazing vintage toy section.

Dick and Jane matted book pages were purchased online at Tag and Wag Books
to really show off the party inspiration.

Here is a shot of one of my favorite details.
I love how the napkin rings embellished with jacks turned out!

Adorable snack cups filled with cotton candy were designed  by Paper and Pigtails.

Here are a few close up shots of the toys and a place setting that I took with my own camera
because I just couldn't get enough of the cuteness.



These "Old Fashioned Soda Pop" labels and water bottle labels were 
another great design from Paper and Pigtails.

Now what would a Vintage Party be without some old fashioned milk and cookies? I wanted a dessert table that was affordable but also fit the theme perfectly.

I couldn't resist snapping a few more photos once I saw the adorable milk and cookie bar come to life.  These great vintage straws were purchased from Modern Lola but can also be found at HeyYoYo.


But of course, I moved out of Courtney's way so she could capture
 these next fabulous images of the dessert table!

The cupcakes were made by me and wrapped in red polka dot cupcake wrappers from HeyYoYo.

Before the end of the party, I snapped this shot of these fun little loot bags from HeyYoYo. Each guest filled them up with goodies before leaving for home.


Here is the precious birthday boy and some of his friends!
