Vintage Chick{en} First Birthday Party

Jennifer from Jennifer Birkhead Designs created such an original, beautiful first birthday party for her daughter, we have no doubt it will charm your socks off!

She used a beautiful unique color scheme incorporate a soft "chick" yellow, with browns, creams, and a stunning shade of greenish-blue.

Check out the precious invitations she designed for the party! Jennifer shares that the inspiration for the vintage theme came from her daughter's vintage name, April Rose! What a *fabulous* idea for theme inspiration!

Swooning over the chicken wire with notes for April, vintage yellow and cream roses, the favor totes with custom labels, the gorgeous rich brown wood bird cage and fabulous set up for the desssert table.

Check out these striking doily decorations and hanging paper "egg" garlands--in love with the precious colors and materials she used to create these.

The dessert display featured precious chick cookies and other delightful treats displayed in egg cartons (brilliant!). Sweets included a spectacular birthday cake, chocolate eggs and caramel & cream biscuits--lots of cupcakes too, of course!
Other theme-appropriate food included chicken salad & egg sandwhiches and mini quiches.
Our favorite photo is of the family with the birthday girl here--they even dressed to coordinate with the party, in the most stylish "Anthropologie"-esque fashion. We love the modern vintage feel to the entire room, and Jennifer did a great job of mixing in her personal decor with items theme-appropriate.

Striking work, Jennifer! We expect that we will see a lot more spectacular printed products and parties from you, thank you for sharing your creativity. You really have made a splash in the party planning world, and we are thrilled and honored to share your party inspiration.
