Today I’m thrilled to feature this gorgeous Shabby Chic Valentine Party by Cris from Crissy’s Crafts.
Cris loves vintage style (a women after my own heart), and when she was contacted by Bird from Bird’s Party to style a party around her new printable collection, she was thrilled. The Love Bird collection is utterly adorable and oh so sweet.
The party was held outdoors and she used props from around the house. The thrift shop was great for finding the perfect small treasures for the sweets table.
I liked that Cris used a trellis to hang mason jars filled with silk pink hydrangeas as a backdrop for the cupcake table.
She also used her daughters desk to display all the yummy treats. They include chocolate bonbon (from Brazil), dark fudge kettle corn, oreo cakesters, strawberry chocolate filled marshmallows, love birds chocolate cupcakes and chocolate dipped puffs. Most of the goodies were store bought and she made them look a little more festive. The vintage ribbon garland was made by A to Zebra Celebrations.
Healthy snacks were also on the menu like whole wheat love bird sandwiches and vegetables shots. The children followed her rule that they need to eat healthy foods before they attacked the sweets!
A large table was set for the girls to sit at and enjoy the treats complete with a flower centerpiece that Chris made out of soda cans. ( very clever) I like the vintage napping rings that she made too. Beautiful cloth napkins that were purchased at the thrift shop for 30 cents a piece were a great bargain and the girls loved using them.
For a take home gift, the children made bracelets and put in cute metal tins embellished with more printables.
Our sweet little party girl looks adorable in her adorable headband by Vintage Rose Wraps.
Diy pillow favor boxes and pink organza bags were filled with kisses, M& M’s and Hershey’s Miniatures.
Cris also used the printable scrapbook paper, cupcake toppers, printable cut-outs and editable buffet cards form the collection to embellish the dessert table items like the white frames, the cupcakes, the wooden birds and the doily banner.
What a gorgeous party! Thank you Crissy’s Crafts for all your wonderful inspiration.
