Today I am a Birthday Girl! Yay! I haven't wait for this day in what seemed forever but in retrospect this month has zipped by! Incredible, right?

I am off having some special birthday adventures that I will immediately share with you all as soon as I can. In the meantime, when I was planning my birthday I asked myself how I could incorporate more vintage into my actual celebration. You will see how I did so when I post my outing but I wanted to share with you five easy ways you can add a little vintage into your own birthday celebrations.

Outings are not always possible and finding vintagey places to go to are not always easy to find for some but these five little things are just a click away as I found some neat birthday items on Etsy.

Sending out vintage birthday invitations, using vintage cake decorations or candles, wrapping presents in vintage paper, or wearing a pretty vintage dress/frock are ways that you can easily incorporate vintage into your special day or in the day of someone you care for.
