Vintage Birthday Party Collectibles

I've always had fond memories
of our Childhood Birthday Parties
And all the wonderful
Party Decorations, and the
great graphics on Birthday Cards...

The filigree favor baskets at each place setting
filled with sweet treats

Special Birthday Cake candle holders
in Animal Shapes!

Gift wrapped presents
Never a gift bag insight!

Flocked Greeting Cards imagine that!

Party paper goods
so bright and whimsical

A special Party Invitation
to each school friend

No videos or digital cameras
memories captured on film

Precious little gummed seals

All these vintage treasures
that turn up at Estate Sales

makes the "thrill of the hunt"
just that much more fun...

So I'll always keep my eyes peeled
for Party Keepsakes
Adding a few here and there to my Shops
and using them in my own Creations

Now just what girl doesn't like a party?

Girly birthday parties in the 60s were the best! Thanks for the memories. ♥

Those bring back so many memories. Love the card and invitations too. You are very lucky to have found all those goodies. The party picture could be out of my own scrapbooks.

The snapshot of the girl's birthday party (yours?) looks just like a photo I have of my sister's birthday party. So sweet! The little party favors bring back memories of the nut and mint cups at each party place setting.

I always loved those baskets. I use to have them for flower arrangements for my Barbies when I was little.

You're so lucky! I NEVER find this kind of stuff at estate sales.

I do miss the old-fashioned parties and my daughter's the only one I know who has them. Everyone else signs up for Chuck E Cheese and stuff. (After all the decorating, crafts, games, prizes and food it's probably cheaper, but no nearly as special!)
