Get ready for some serious birthday party inspiration! For Poppy’s 70’s inspired second birthday party the vintage vibe theme was Grow With Love. Creative Amme created the most perfect signage with floral detailing that made for a perfect backdrop for guests to take photos as they walked in.
We set up a lounge area in front of our VW square back which also acted as the gift table and a really fun play area for the kids to crawl around in (don’t worry, we hid the keys!).
The second lounge area was perfect for guests to relax and cool off and since this was our first real gathering of the year the ‘Better Together’ neon signage from Archive was the perfect touch.
The kids table was set up in the back yard complete with a 64’ sq ft balloon wall and the most adorable bamboo tableware from Bonjour Fete with party hats from Ellie and Piper. Sticking with the vintage vibe (and my low expectation of 15 toddlers sitting in their chairs for more than 10 minutes) we went with floor pillows for the kids which they loved jumping and playing on.
Rogue and Fox knocked it out of the park with her amazing florals! When we were talking about the look we decided that rather than using all the rainbow colors of the design in each arrangement it would be fun to have color blocked arrangements which kept the design fun and sophisticated.
Since we were still keeping everything outside we definitely tried to utilize EVERY corner of the backyard. Creative Amme made a ‘Make Your Mark’ laser cut for the kids to draw on the chalk wall and my husband set up a fairy forest for the kids to explore behind our fig tree. I have to say, this was one of the most popular spots for the kids to hang out!
I fell in love with the Polar Bear kitchen smoothies a few months ago and knew as soon as I met them I wanted them to be a part of Poppy’s birthday. Their mission is to create unity from change through the unique culinary blends of their smoothies to bring awareness to culture and social issues. They are an amazing company with kind hearts and delicious smoothies- they even made one named after Poppy and it was SO good!
The Familia Rodriguez Taquiza served up some of the most delicious tacos I have ever had. They are a really talented family owned company and everyone loved their food!
For dessert, Butter Cake Shoppe made the most beautiful shag cakes. We went with cupcakes for the kids and I love how they created a crochet poppy design to tie in that 70’s flair! Between the shag sun cake, the retro speed stripe cake and the pointillism cookies it was fair to say that their designs really took the cake!
The kids took home gift bags filled with stickers, coloring books, dinosaurs, and grow capsules. The bags, designed by With Love and Confetti, read “Let them live like flowers, wild and beautiful”. This birthday party was the perfect garden for our wild and beautiful, Poppy Rose.
Let us know what you think about this retro vibe! Can you dig it?
