Yikes! Does it seem like this Christmas season is dashing through a time-warp for you, too? In this already busy season Mike and I have had to hit the pause button while we’ve dealt with the flu. No fun but we’re back at life now, thankfully.

Using polka dots, stripes and a combination of patterns always creates a fun, energetic vibe. A fabric backdrop is an easy way to introduce temporary color and pattern. The ornaments banner used here could also morph into a happy birthday banner by adding the alphabet medallions. If you have cubby storage, filling the bins with complimentary colors adds to the party atmosphere.

Vintage Rudolph Christmas Birthday Party Ideas

I love this birthday cake with large polka dots. Put it up on a pedestal as Kim has done; embellish it with a Rudolph medallion and you’re good to go. If you don’t have a pedestal collection, use (clean!) garden pots upside down and put plates on top. A couple of the adhesive dots keep them secure and can be peeled off after the party (I’ve been using those adhesive dots in a lot of my temporary decorating –great invention!).

Here are my favorite styling tips from this party:

  • Print off the Rudolph image and stick him in a frame for easy, graphic appeal.
  • Add ribbons to jars and serving pieces for more color. Cake pops dipped in colored chocolate and dusted with sprinkles are festive.
  • After baking, pop cupcakes in secondary wraps for more party finery; top them with merry medallions and sprinkles.
  • Place cards on a guest table make guests feel welcomed because they see they have been specifically planned for.
  • Swirly lollipops are another way to add color to your party table plus they’re great take-home favors.
