Charming Vintage Silhouette Birthday Party

Vintage Silhouette Birthday Party Dessert Table

This VINTAGE SILHOUETTE themed birthday party that Cristen and Jeff created for their daughter Savannah – along with design help from expert party stylist Kate Landers – is filled to the brim with charming details and inspiring DIY elements (like the fabulous paper doily dessert table backdrop, for starters!).

Some of my favorite details include the pint-sized parasols for the girls, the giant hanging tissue pom personalized with a big “S”, sweet vintage style birthday cakes (made by dad), and the super cool homemade “photo booth” area – complete with vintage dress up props and an oversize ornate gold frame. Also loving the paper doily accents galore, which really helped tie all the different party elements together… you see them everywhere from the handmade invitations and party hats to the favor bags and food signs!

Amazing Willy Wonka Themed Birthday Party

Willy Wonka themed birthday cake

This amazing, larger-than-life WILLY WONKA themed birthday party by Tracie from {tsj} Photography is seriously a sweet tooth’s dreamland come true!

From lollipop table centerpieces and huge candy themed cut-outs to “Golden Ticket” chocolate bar invitations, giant wrapped “hard candies” hanging from the ceiling, a truly fantastic Willy Wonka themed cake, and more… it’s apparent that a {very creative & colorful} sugar rush was in full swing here! I kind of wish I could’ve witnessed the looks on the kids faces when they arrived and took THIS sight in… ;)
