Still getting festive...

This alone was more than enough to put a smile on my face today. The gorgeous spring hanger above is by Kris Hurst. The colors and the design of this piece are just stunning. I have it in our kitchen and it stops me in my tracks every time. Helps me forget about the sleet and snow that we are getting outside and remain optimistic that spring will come!
Back to merry making for Chloe's big day. The fun vintage paper pinwheels above are from Candice's new shop Peacoats and Party Hats. Couldn't think of a better place to find some vintage party goods, her shop has such fun stuff. Also bought the balloons below from her.

I've been wanting to use these vintage party plates for some time after finding them at an estate sale. Love the princess theme without all the Disney. I am making a birthday banner with them.

I've been getting tons of goodies for the birthday gal in the mail. I think the mailman is really wondering what's up. I've shared much already and it keeps on coming. Luckily she's too young to be reading my blog! The sweet cupcake card above is from Analise. The cupcake liners and chenille stems are from Pink grapefruit style. The hats and glittered fern are from none other than Corey Moortgat. Tons more from her below.

Corey was my other partner for the Vintage Party Swap. We had a ball swapping with each other! Check out this cutie pie birthday decor she made above.

The box was filled with vintage children's goodness for all the senses. The embroidered heart pillow above it filled with lavendar. The gorgeous gal on the bottom right is actually a hand mirror on the other side. The tea cup and saucer is the most gorgeous robin's egg blue.
Then comes all the paper ephemera. Wow!!!
Finally some fabric. Boy am I a lucky gal. Thanks, Corey!!!

I love your blog Kari! I have finally stumbled upon this "blog world" and find yours sooo adorably cute. And what a wonderful birthday your little one is going to have! My son turns 4 next month, and this is totally inspiring me to do things up big! :) (It helps that he totally appreciates the color pink and decorations!) xo!
