I'm in the midst of planning my daughter's 10th birthday - and if you've been a fan of SMP for any length of time, you know that I spend an embarrassing amount of time on my childrens' birthday parties (Audrey's 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th) - so we've been going round and round on what this year's theme is. I like themes that ditch the playbook, that push us into fun new territory. So when I spotted this 70's inspired party theme, I was sold. The launchpad for the party was Geese & Gander adorable party goods collection and was a collaboration between Black Twine and designer Jacqui Marino of Deets & Things and the best part? You can buy it all right here (totally NOT sponsored).
There’s no better way to kick off a 70s themed party than with the ultimate blast from the past—a vintage bus. They’re just so cool! Enter our friends from the Traveling Photo Bus who provided countless hours of merriment for our mini guests. Styled with Not Just in Novel’s buttery tree peonies and the grooviest sign that I ombre’d from Happily Ever Etched, turning back time never looked so fun and lively!
Clad in darling vintagesque clothing from Harlow Jade and felt floral headbands from Fancy Free Finery, our mini partygoers fit the part as they jammed on some funky tunes, snapped photos, and ate on the cutest array of partyware! At each setting Jomygoodness calligraphied funkadelic placecards with 70s lingo like Cool Cat, Disco Queen, and Groovy gal.
The talented ladies of Sugar Crush Sweets and Sweetleemade gave us all the feels with their delicious assortment of sweets. My inner flowerchild had complete heart eyes over the 70s rendition of the “unicorn” cake by Sweetleemade. She and her team also made daisy macaroons, VW bus cookies and more to complete the look. Finally, what’s not to love about a peace lovin’ cookie cake! Sugar Crush Sweets' peace sign cake was the cherry on top and the kids couldn’t get enough of it! So much good vibes and peace love & party in one place – the perfect way to spend a summer day!
