I had picked up a few vintage toys from Kmart on the way home for only $5 and some $1 lollipops, and had already sent out invites with a cute vintage paper doll on the front. With limited time we thought we would theme it loosely around old school/retro/vintage toys/games/food and use what we had on hand in the house. It was our easiest, simplest party yet, and very low budget. All the details below...
Party: 3rd birthday party
Organised by: me! (Steph Bond-Hutkin and Mr Bondville too)
Theme: loosely based around vintage toys and games
Invitation: Made by me. I had received a very cute vintage paper doll sticky memo booklet in an abcd meet-up goodie bag from Vesna (My Little Jedi). I cut and layered white and cream card, added the doll on one side and the kitten on the other. I then stamped a 3 on the front, and an M on the back, and hand wrote all the party details on the back.
Down That Little Lane in an abcd meet-up bag), and sugar hearts (from Sweet Style in an abcd meet-up bag), and I made raspberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and strawberry butterflies on top. We offered real lemonade to everyone, and Mr Bondville made the kids orange ice cream floats (spiders).
