{party envy} red, white, & wagon

Hope everyone is having a safe & happy 4th!
While you are enjoying your BBQ & brew, here's a little birthday party inspiration that is in perfect harmony with today's color scheme: red, white, & blue!

Vintage Red Wagon Birthday Party 

Wagon Party 6

This darling vintage party caught my eye over @ Kara's Party Ideas where it was featured as the "party of the day"!

First of all, I am 100% in love with red & aqua as a color scheme! Also, Radio Flyer's are such an icon of childhood (& remind me of USA too - perfect party to feature today!). One Stone Events did a phenomenal job with all the elements of this 1st birthday: country, gingham touches, grass tablecloth, mini pies, and the ever-so-popular pinwheels.

Wagon Party 1

Favorite Tablescape Details

1. What a great way to incorporate store bought goods into your theme; these apple pies are just perfect!  
2. Love the simple topper(s) on the cake: paper & ribbon fixed onto skewers.
3. Two of my all time current faves: glass bottles & striped paper straws.

Wagon Party 4

Great idea to use crates to create multiple levels on your drink station. The banner & photo bunting in the background are just darling!

Wagon Party 5

Totally crushing on bamboo cutlery for use at parties right now! Love how the napkins are tied in gingham & burlap, and stored in an old sifter :)

Wagon Party 3

A great spin on a guest book/words-of-wisdom, very age appropriate!

Wagon Party 2

Take home treats are just as cute!
Paper sacks with chalkboard labels, tied with bakers twine, and stamped with the party's main design inspiration: a red wagon. Classic Cracker Jack is an extra surprise sweet with a sock monkey keeping guard thanking the guests with the take-home-goods!

Keep on celebrating our independence!
