Shabby Chic Picnic Birthday Party

Rent My Dust loves Event Styling by Shawna Marie! Shawna recently did a lovely 1st birthday party using some of our vintage decor.  Since it is Shawna's birthday today, I wanted to blog all about it.  Hope Shawna doesn't mind that I copied it word for word from her own blog post.  Thank you so much!  Hope you enjoy!  ~ Rita

Blogged from Event Styling by Shawna Marie:

Grace’s shabby chic 1st birthday party was the prettiest of pretty parties! I had such a blast spending the day with this family in Sunnyvale. Janice and Jon are superstar parents and Grace’s big sister Faith is so funny and smart.

The food was heavenly! Pulled pork slider sandwiches for adults, peanut butter and jelly for the kids, kettle chips, individual ice cream, an assortment of mini pies, mini bunt cakes and coconut cake! I was lucky enough to sample the desserts Janice made and they were so delicious. The mini pies were from a cute pie company called Scrumbscious in Mesquite.
The vintage rentals from Rent My Dust blended perfectly with the style of the home and I just love that.
