Vintage Photo Friday: Birthday Parties!

This Friday I thought I would show you my vintage photos from birthday parties. I don't come across them very often for some reason, so I only have three. I'm on the lookout for more! I like seeing the decorations and old party graphics!
I like this little guy blowing up a ballon in what seems to be the aftermath of a birthday party. See his parents (I'm assuming) in the reflection? I love the party stuff strewn about the table, and I wish I could make out the detail on those napkins!
Do you see the little paper basket party favor in the bottom left? And what is that on his hat, a pilot maybe? This one seems really sweet to me, it looks like she is going to let him cut the cake after he blew out the candles.
And last but not least, this gem! I'm now sure my favorite part! That amazing cake, the little hats, the strange focal point of the photo, those little boys' faces... I can just hear the mother wanting them all to look perfect with their little hats before they take a good group photo. 

So there is my tiny collection of vintage party photos. I hope I can find some more this year!

  7. Beautiful photos. The one of the mother about to cut the cake with her son is breath taking.

  8. LOOOOVE these. I think the kid's hat says "Moon Pilot", which is now what I'm putting down on all official documents as "Occupation". #gohardorgohome #moonjobs #meandthemoon
