I am totally in love with this theme, I just couldn't wait to show it off. I designed and created this party for my son's second birthday. He had just learned to ride his tricycle and was oh so proud so I wanted to somehow incorporate that into his party......and from there the retro red &=aqua theme was born...
The theme for his birthday was Retro Red & Aqua, he had just learned to ride his tricycle so we thought that this would be the perfect theme to incorporate his new skill.
I designed the invitations, and created the party around the invitations.

It was a beautiful March day, we threw the party at home in our backyard. All of our friends and family were there to help us celebrate. The little ones loved playing on the playground. With the young ones I prefer to keep parties simple, invite some friends let them play. No rushing, no agenda...just plain ol' fun. After the kids played we ate ice cream and cake and opened presents
An old dining room table was the perfect backdrop for our food table, we served homemade ice cream in a vintage ice cream maker from my childhood. We had sliders, chips and veggies with dip, nothing fancy just a little bit of momma's good food!

Little man loves caramel corn, so we found just the right stuff at our local Cracker Barrel. Vintage Cracker Jacks made the perfect parting gift. We used a vintage Radio Flyer Tricycle (borrowed from a friend) to be the backdrop for our favor table. We set up a candy shop...which little man hovered around the entire evening...I think he likes candy!
The favor tags were attached using some bakers twine found at Target in the $1 section.
Custom printable stickers dressed up the plastic cups for the homemade ice cream. Adorable hand stamped wooden spoons added an extra special vintage touch.
The Cake took my breath away when I picked it up. A local lady here in Tallahassee named Marilyn G. has a passion for creating beautiful cakes. I simply gave her my invite design and she matched it perfectly. It was a beautifully tasty centerpiece for our little man's celebration.
The topper was made using bakers twine and scrapbook paper, cut into small pennants. Wooden skewers held it in place.
