A sixth birthday vintage party

Remember the competition we ran to celebrate our website launch and also for reaching 1000 facebook fans?  Our winner was Kerrie from Tara K Designs with this gorgeous winning entry:

Its party time for the birthday girl, 'Turntable with buckets' we'll give it a whirl, We'll fill it with lollies and a sprinkling of cheer, For fond memories of another year!

And that's exactly what Kerrie did when she hosted a party for her adorable little girl's 6th birthday ~ she filled her pink turntable with buckets with lollies and created absolutely gorgeous fond memories for her daughter Tara to remember forever. 

The theme for Tara's party was a Vintage inspired party in gorgeous pastel pinks, beige and white.  I fell in love with every detail of the party, created in one of my absolute favourite styles.

These gorgeous lollies cones are one of my favourite details ~ perfect

Kerrie's business, called Tara K Designs specialises in Vintage inspired children's clothing, accessories and bedroom decor and therefore she wanted to incorporate this into the theme ~ Kerrie adores lace, ribbons, pearls and bows so the theme was ideal.

As a special treat for birthday girl Tara and her friends, the party was also a hair clip making party.

(Here are the girls showing off their special creations in their hair)

Kerrie's favourite thing about the day was the sheer delight and smiles on the girls faces when they arrived and saw the party set-up. Secondly, the fun they had making the clips. She said that the time flew by so fast because everyone was having so much fun ~ and what fun it looked!!!


The party food was designed in a variety of pinks and creams.  

They had a gorgeous table of party food (sugar bliss) including white chocolate dipped marshmallow, sprinkled with fairy dust (a hit), popcorn served in the baking cups ( a bigger hit), lollies in the turntables with buckets, coconut marshmallow on sticks, iced vo vo's (a memory from Kerrie's childhood) and a selection of hot and cold food for the adults.  A special touch was the punch bowl with one of the girls telling her Mum 'there was grown up drink Mummy', how cute!!!

Kerrie's gorgeous friends Belinda and Erin made and iced the birthday cake and Kerrie decorated it in a Vintage theme using the most exquisite hair clip for the centrepiece.  This was supplied by Bliss Clips and is available from their Diamonds and Pearls range.


Bliss Clips supplied the gorgeous hair clip embellishments in a variety of colours - just beautiful 

Vintage is Beautiful supplied Tara's gorgeous dress and Kerrie designed the matching vintage inspired belt and hair clip.

Tara K designs made the doily birthday banner, vintage bunting, pearl and lace pom poms, pop pom tree for the turntable with buckets and vintage inspired cornucopia lolly favours.

Another thank you from Kerrie goes out Mikala for assisting with the glue gun and Erin for crown control ~ i'm sure they did an amazing job by the looks of things.

Kerrie also wanted to thank Sweet Little Birdy for providing the turn table with buckets, polka dot baking cups and polka dot drinking cups.  Kerrie highly recommends the turntable from the oohs and aahs she witnessed as the girls turned the buckets to choose their sweets.  Kerrie ~ you are more than welcome, thank you for sharing Tara's exquisite party with us.
