Shabby Chic - Birthday Party

Last Saturday I had the opportunity to showcase some of our gorgeous products by throwing a casual party to celebrate my birthday.

I wanted the party to have an elegant shabby chic feel with lots of whites, pinks and florals.

Our Pink Swirl Round Lollipops and Pink Fairy Floss was enjoyed by all!

The beautiful bunting was made by the very talented Amy of Giggleberry Creations. We proudly stock the Giggleberry Creations range of bunting in our store.

The gorgeous vanilla cupcakes were made by the lovely Kristin of Yummylicious.

Kristin wrapped the cupcakes with butterfly laser cut wrappers and topped the beautiful icing with blush coloured pearls.

Our Mini Wooden Scoops were enjoyed by all, especially by the children as the scoops are the perfect size for those little hands!

Our home made pink lemonade was very popular and looked gorgeous in this Mason Jar Glass Drink Dispenser which we purchased directly from Pottery Barn. Our Chalk Board Labels and Place Card Holders completed the look beautifully.

We filled our Glass Churn Pots with yummy strawberry custard and tied our Wooden Teaspoons to the pots using our Pink Sorbet Twine! These pots were also filled with Creaming Soda Jelly.

We filled our handy sized Noodles Boxes with Strawberries & Cream Flavoured Popcorn. One of our White Tin Pails filled with Pink Stripe Straws was placed next to the glass drink dispenser.

and finally, the lanterns! We had a sky filled with an array of lanterns in a palette of florals and pink, green, taupe and white tones. They looked stunning in the afternoon sun and even more beautiful as the night time came and the warm glow of each lantern light could be seen.

All in all, we were very happy with the way the party came together but most importantly, it was a very enjoyable afternoon and evening spent with a fabulous group of friends and family.


  1. First of all, Happy Birthday! Such a sweet & charming party you had...every detail so lovely!

  2. Oh so pretty - I would love to spend my birthday afternoon that way too!

  3. Belated birthday greetings :).

    You have some lovely details in your birthday celebration. I shall have to check out your store.

    Best wishes,
    Madame Bonbon

    Please tell me where you found the lanterns? I am desperately trying todo my daughters first bday in shabby chic and.coming up empty handed :-(

  5. Oh I need some of these pretties. I can't decide which is my favourite. Possibly the strawberry custard pots.

  6. Wow, this Shabby Chic birthday party is absolutely stunning! I loved how the entire party was arranged and all the décor is very pretty. This is something I wanted to do for my own daughter’s 5th birthday celebrations. Will have to find the most suitable outdoor event locations for such setting. Hoping to find a good location soon.
