Vintage Pink Elephant Birthday Party

If you love all things PINK and shabby chic, get ready to swoon over this ridiculously cute VINTAGE PINK ELEPHANT Birthday Party by Lyndsey of LuLu’s!

There’s such a sweet, feminine vibe to all the details in this pretty party – from the lovely, mostly-pink color palette accented with fun pops of peach and seafoam green – to the frilly custom paper birthday hats and cupcake toppers. I’m especially loving the twine & lace embellished soda bottles and vintage fabric and lace canopy – not to mention the perfectly coordinating outfit on the darling birthday girl herself! ;) This would also be a lovely theme for a baby shower, (which is actually the original intended use of the cute elephant printables by Lulu’s).

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Lyndsey

“I’m excited to share these photos of a recent party design. I was asked by a client to take one of our baby shower packages and turn it into a birthday party that was shabby chic and vintage. There was only one stipulation, it had to be PINK! So, with that in mind, we set up our small dessert bar on an old dresser and an old Singer sewing machine whose drawers had been sealed for over 25 years! We used yards of vintage patterned fabrics and lace (in a custom canopy), poured out vintage spoils of thread (from the Singer), and used old suitcases and train cases.

We kept the foods simple with:
– Rosy Rice Crispies
– Painted Pink Popcorn
– Flushed Fortune Cookies
– Custom Elephant Cookies
– Rolled Pastries

Lastly, we added the oversized balloons for a touch of retro.”

Looks fantastic! Would love to be that creative when planning a party. Will definitely have to keep these ideas in mind. By the way, the serving dish you have the elephant cookies in looks acacia wood! Is it? Love it. I work with Pacific Merchants and they have a gorgeous line of acacia servingware.
