Don’t you like how I end all my post titles with a period? There’s just something about periods; they are a much better punctuation mark than, say, a superfluous apostrophe. I think it really adds a touch of class to my blog!
Anyway, for this Thursday’s Vintage Thingie, I’m presenting … my daughter! Sort of. Actually, I’m presenting the decorations for her first birthday party. First things first, here’s a picture of my beautiful one year old. We had a small family gathering at our city lake last night.
I took several vintage Little Golden books and copied pages from them to make my decorations. Here is a sampling of some of the books I used; not all of them, I actually used about a dozen. I found them in various places and borrowed some from my dear mother.
The festivities started with these invitations that I made using an image from Charming Chattie. The pink circle and “Celebrate” are mounted on pop dots and the “Celebrate” is from one of my Xyron Runner cartridges.
Here are some pictures from the party. I made dinner plates and dessert plates by cutting my images into circles and mod-podging them onto the plates. I put the napkins and silverware into tin buckets from Hobby Lobby – I mod-podged Little Golden images onto them also. The cupcake toppers are also Little Golden images cut into smaller circles. There were 3 bud vases showcasing Little Golden images.
Here are some close-ups of a couple of the dessert plates.
