Tin Parade Vintage Party Goods for Your Perfect Holiday Fete

by Starre Vartan · 11/03/10


Tin Parade offers custom-designed, all-inclusive packaged parties for dinners, adult and children’s birthdays, baby and bridal showers. It is the inspiration of two women with a similar love of great design, fun events and good, old-fashioned attention to detail. Kristen and Ryan met at the mom’s version of a single’ s club—the local park.

They soon realized they had a lot in common, not least of which being children of about the same age. Besides being devoted moms and avid runners, they both had jobs in creative fields. Kristen was an accomplished advertising art director, where she produced print and television ads for high-profile clients.


Ryan is a celebrated wedding and event designer, and owner of Savoir Flair Weddings in Los Angeles. With plenty of birthday parties and baby showers on the horizon, they found themselves commiserating on the lack of beautiful, stylish, cartoon-character-free party décor on the market. As they created Tin Parade they realized that their mutual love of vintage style and detail came with a fabulous side benefit: a lot less of the paper products that pervade modern-day parties.

All of Tin Parade’s plates and party decorations are reusable and many of the details are hand- crafted of cloth. For Ryan and Kristen, Tin Parade is more than just designing parties. It is also about creating memories, because each set is timeless and classic, and is full of things you or your child will keep for years to come.


The brainchild of event designer Ryan Larson and art director Kristen Gara, Tin Parade offers themed children’ s birthday parties and baby and bridal showers. From the vintage-inspired linens to custom-made invitations and reproduction tin toys, each party set contains all the ingredients you will need to effortlessly throw a nostalgic but fresh party that will warm each and every guest.

VasesLo-RezTin Parade’s Great Green Gala Party is one to rejoice in as an eco-friendly party set that includes:
– Invite and thank you cards made from 100% certified sustainable forest pulp
– a biodegradable wooden sign
– a sustainable and biodegradable runner made from a brown canvas created from eco-friendly hemp and organic cotton blend
– biodegradable wooden place cards and 100% bamboo plates
– birch bark centerpieces salvaged from the floors of the forest and cotton rag flower brooches sewn together from cotton rag remnants.

Come revel in a gorgeous, Earth-friendly soiree that Mother Nature herself would gleefully attend!
