HI! I’m Anna. Mama bear to 9 amazing children and wife to one fab hubby.

I am a 1950s housewife at heart, who loves nothing more than baking in my pink kitchen and creating stylish vintage celebrations.

Here in Mama Bear’s Kitchen, you will find inspiration for your next vintage baby shower, birthday or high tea party. I am here to share my love of unique and beautifully styled dessert tables, deliciously decorative cakes and cupcakes and snapshots of my wonderful large family life.

Thank you for stopping by.
