Vintage Wheels Quadruplets Birthday Party

My next party feature goes to this superb VINTAGE WHEELS QUADRUPLETS BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Michelle Krol of Our Wonderfilled LifeMichelle has FOUR boys turning the SAME AGE on the SAME DAY!!!! Super exciting and such a big task! Such a darling party. What a great idea, too! Michelle said that her inspiration for the party came from vintage wheels with a retro nod. She chose a special vehicle for each one of her quadruplets, with a special meaning for each one. If they had to pick a vehicle out of a pile, she said, these are the ones they would chose...Aiden- double decker bus, Beckham- train, Liam- race car, Griffin- Trike. SO CUTE. I love how she turned a long rectangular table into a Dining Car. All the burlap, bunting, food, decor, games, etc are so adorable. Excellent job, Michelle! Thanks for your submission. Congrats on being chosen as today's winning party feature! 

Here is what Michelle said about the party- 

"I recently, officially started up Little Marvels Designs and took the boys' party through my party planning process. The main frame is from Orange Blossom Shop and was literally the jumping off point
for my entire design. The favors were super simple, you can find out more here. I found the vintage No. 2 on ETSY, love it and we used it in their picture. The wagon and suitcase were found at the flea market. It made for a really sweet vignette right next to the dining car. I purchased the cakes from Jewel, made the bunting from left over stickers, bakers twine, stripey straws and cardstock I had. I made a No.2 runner out of burlap, a homemade stencil, and black paint. It worked out so well for the top of the trunk. Milk served in glass bottles, with stripey straws from Think Garnish. Instead of buying expensive bottles, I used the Archer Farms {Target brand} Vanilla Caramel Iced Coffee bottles. The snack cones were from Green Grass Grows, thanks Andrea! Filled with peanut butter pretzels and caramel corn/cheddar Chicago style popcorn combo. These were out when our guests arrived. I found the baskets at Home Goods, spray painted them black, added a bit of bunting. The kids {and adults!} LOVED the mini cupcakes in pushup containers. Matt handmade the holder upcycled from a pallet. More about the push-pops here. I painted a $3.00 Goodwill frame, Matt cut a piece of wood perfect size, which I layered with chalkboard paint to make this sign for our guests. I made the little crayon holders out of mason jars, left over burlap, fabric and twine."
