For her son’s first birthday celebration, Tori of Tori Johnson PR hosted a Vintage County Fair Party that – as she describes it – “transported all attendees back a couple decades to the good ol’ blue ribbon bake sale days“. After checking out these pics, I’m so ready for a flashback too! This party just looks like loads of fun for everyone… who’s ready for some fresh squeezed lemonade and a game of ring toss? ;)
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
Clever themed food & drink stations: Farmer’s Market, Bake Sale, Lemonade Stand & more!
Gingham check table linens, napkins, mason jar covers, and buntings
Classic fair games like Coke bottle ring toss, tin-can throw, & a petting zoo!
Hand painted scrap wood signs for each station & welcome signs
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Tori…
I love all things vintage and being that both my husband and I are from “Small-Town Texas” I knew a Vintage County Fair Birthday Party would be perfect for our son’s first birthday party. We transported all attendees back a couple decades to the good ol’ blue ribbon bake sale days filled with home cooked BBQ, cotton candy and a wide variety of fair activities.

Hooch Table (for adults only)
I created a variety of handmade items to add small details to the event including the below. I also utilized many odds and ends borrowed from family such as old quilts made by my grandmother that hung behind the bake sale table.
