You can fly! {vintage Dumbo birthday party}

Today we celebrated Grace's birthday at preschool with her sweet little friends. It was supposed to have been Kite Day, thus the "You can fly!" theme, but last night's downpour and the forecast of more rain for today prevented us from letting those kites take flight. No worries. The littles enjoyed cake, cake, and more cake!This morning I had a special treat for the little pumpkin and her brother...movies and coloring books! Keeping with the theme, it was Dumbo for Grace and The Lion King II for Hudson because he's crazy about the original one.It was Hudson's first time to wear a tie...doesn't he look so grown up???!!! Eeeek!Grace was so excited to go to school and celebrate with her friends...Hmmm...maybe because she finally got to wear the long anticipated golden 5!!!Our baker Alyson made Grace a super yummy cake......and even tinted it pink on the inside to celebrate Grace's favorite color!I was so excited to stumble upon these {plastic, disposable} plates. Aren't they cute??!Happy Birthday to you...Happy Birthday to you...Happy Birthday, dear Grace...Happy Birthday to you!!! And many more!Cake time!YUM!With mama and daddy......and Mrs. Bryan and Mrs. Peterson!
{the reality that we only have two more months with these sweet teachers is starting to set in...soooo sad}
Even Noonie stopped by...Grace was SO excited!!The boys...Wait a minute. Who are those two new boys??! :)After LOTS of cake {and before the sugar coma set in}......it was time to burn off some energy.Rain?....schmain!It was a fun morning celebrating five sweet little years...Where does the time go??? I still remember holding you for the very first time...a tiny 5 lb. 9 oz. beautiful baby girl...and look at you know!!And just like in the story...Believe with all your heart, and...Oh, sweet little pumpkin...you are turning into such a big girl, but you will always be our baby girl.Happy 5th Birthday, Grace!
We love you so much!
Mama, Daddy & Hudson

Oh how lovely. Would be fun to take her kite flying in that dress another day, just your family. Those plastic plates are gorgeous! I've never seen anything like them. Happy Birthday Grace! I hope you feel every bit as special as your are. ((HUGS))

Jessica, this was the sweetest party ever. I LOVE that you used vintage Dumbo, he is one of my faves. We have preemies too, long time getting them here, lots of prayers. Aren't they just the best gifts that God could ever give us? Not a day goes by, that I am not so so thankful.

Happy Birthday Grace! Enjoy your special day.

PS: LOVE those plates!!!

Olivia said...

What a fun party Jessica! I love that you can make a school party that special for her! Happy BIrthday to Dear Grace, such a beautiful girl!

Kimberley said...

oh my goodness, how precious!!! love every single detail!!! this makes me wish i had a girl ;) where did you find the plates? too cute!

Teresa said...

Absolutely gorgeous as always! I simply love pink and aqua as a combination - those aqua plates are to die for - with the paper doilies just so pretty!

Jessica said...

Thank you ladies!!

I found the plates at Party City. They had pink, lavender, and the aqua ones I bought. All three with silver trimmed scalloped edges. Ours had them by the Spring/Easter decor and they had both dinner and dessert sizes. I hope they get them in more colors and keep them year round! Oh and they were $20 for $9.99.

What an amazing party! Grace's dress (and mj socks and pink Mary janes) is just perfect! And the hat? In love!

Jean Knee said...

what a darling party. Love the vintage colors.

Jessica said...

Thanks everyone for your sweet comments - they really make my day!

Angel~ we plan to go visit my grandma and family in Puerto Rico this June. I can't wait to take Grace & Hudson to El Morro in Old San Juan where I grew up flying kites every year!! :)

Oh, Laura~ YES, those tiny preemies and then seeing them happy and healthy...makes me teary-eyed anytime I think about it. Praise the Lord for their well-being!

I absolutely LOVE this theme. Hi, my name is Cheryl and I just stumbled upon your blog while looking for Dumbo party ideas for my little's 2nd birthday.I am not much of a blogger, don't have much time to keep up with it. I was so happy to find your gorgeous blog! My husband and I planted a church here with another couple in the Phoenix area 2 years ago and are in awe of His work in our lives :) I am a former Kinder teacher and also saw your ABC flowers. LOVE them! Good luck to your daughter in K! God bless you and your sweet fam. Following you on Pinterest and Etsy, too. Your vintage style is heart breakingly gorgeous!!

Jessica said...

Thanks, Sarah & Cheryl!!!

Cheryl~ your sweet comment made my day! :) I love that you and your husband are spreading God's love. If you ever start up a blog, let me know - I'd love to follow along!
Blessings to your sweet family,
~Jessica

Jessica,
I love love love this birthday theme!! You did an amazing job! I work at an elementary school and know how important and special birthdays are for K. I hope your daughter is doing well in 1st grade. I wanted some info. if you dont mind sharing...the dress is it Matilda Jane? I have a soon to be 2 year old granddaughter and love her so much she is our only grandchild at this time. We were searching vintage dumbo and came upon your site. My daughter Brittney said Mom this is exactly what I had in mind for Isabella's birthday. I love the plates the color scheme and the beautiful love you put into her party...we are going to have quite a few little ones and also wondering if you would share where you purchased things for party. I have looked up paper straws and vintage milk bottles..they are pretty pricey...if you could also give me the name of the dress or where you bought it...love love love it. Hope you dont mind us coping you and your ideas they were by far the best on the internet. God bless you and your precious family and have a blessed evening.
