Positively Unique Birthday Parties!

Want to throw a thoroughly unique birthday party to surprise both your honored birthday girl or boy and your guests?  Check out these unique ways to make your party pop!

Choose a theme unlike what you’ll find at your local party store:

Move away from the typical character themes and the usual.  Think outside of the box.  How about:

  • A Party in Paris
  • Vintage Circus
  • Gone Fishin’
  • Vintage Cowboys and Cowgirls
  • Purple Party!
  • Creeping Creatures Party
  • Polka Dot Party

We love a vintage-themed party.  Deanna Gardner of The Baby Gardner has a few ideas to spice up your birthday parties. “If you really want to make your birthday party unique, take a common theme and add a vintage twist to it. Circus, cowboys, fairies, cars, zoo animals — the list goes on and on. These are some of the most popular party themes, but give them a vintage feel and you’ve created something totally unique.”

The Baby Gardner has some great resources for getting your party in full swing in a very unique way.  Their top-5 list of favorite resources include:

1. Layer Cake Shop: This is my all time favorite resource for birthday baking novelties. If you’re not sure about your party theme (or even if you are), hit this shop first for all kinds of inspiring ideas. (I could design an entire party around these vintage car cupcake toppers!)

2. Tin Parade: Tin Parade designs vintage-inspired packaged parties for children’s birthdays. These memorable parties are one-of-a-kind and full of things you or your child will keep for years to come. If you want to pull out all the stops, this is the place to do it. My personal favorite is Ruby’s Tea Party Set.

3. The Baby Gardner: If you’re looking for a one-stop shop for all your vintage birthday party needs, the selection at The Baby Gardner can’t be beat. A wide variety of vintage-themed birthday invitations are available, as well as exclusive birthday party supplies complete with cupcake picks, banners and favor bags.

4. Rolling Pin Productions: Delight your eyes and taste buds with custom decorated sugar cookies. Vintage styles available. Be sure to check out the Baby section and the Kid section to see all the possibilities. Wouldn’t the baby shoe cookies be adorable for a first birthday?

5. Silver Spoon Scraps: Offering handmade vintage-inspired party hats that are a must for all those birthday photos. Crepe paper and vintage graphics make these simply fabulous and the selection goes on for days. Don’t miss the Vintage Ballerina Party Hat and the Vintage Airplane Party Hat. (The Baby Gardner also carries three exclusive party hat designs crafted by Sita Riddle of Silver Spoon Scraps. Check them out in our Birthday Party Collection.)
