A mother’s love of vintage and her daughter’s adoration for a certain kawaii feline combined to create one of the cutest darned parties we ever did see.
We love bringing you unique daytime soirées (otherwise known as children’s birthday parties), styled by our brilliant Babyology readers. The latest cab off the rank is this adorable vintage Hello Kitty mash-up, which we just love.
Florence has a penchant for all things vintage, while her daughter Jade is besotted with Hello Kitty. What to do, what to do? How about throw a birthday party for a sweet two-year-old celebrating both themes?!
Florence had a ball designing the dessert table, which has a fantastic mix of old-world charm and kawaii kitsch. For instance vintage milk bottles adorned with paper doilies, and Hello Kitty’s signature bow.
And if you think throwing a party with a theme means buying a whole bunch of stuff – think again. Here’s how Florence managed to inject a flourish of vintage style, for nix.
“I used rustic props available around the house such as rattan picnic basket, bed frame backdrop, wooden tables and lots of doilies to create that vintage look. We had the party on a beautiful sunny Brisbane day underneath huge bougainvillea.”
Jade was lucky enough to have two cakes, one depicting Hello Kitty, and a smash cake – which looked far too good to smash!
Delightful mararons, chocolate cupcakes and fruit salad tempted the young party-goers, who were then treated to a dip in the pool and a game of piñata.
If you’re keen to replicate this pretty party, here’s where Florence sourced some of the brilliant items you can see above:
