Pretty Garden Tea Party

I created this party for my daughters 4th Birthday. She has always been obsessed with acting like a little lady and obviously High tea suited her to a "tea". The morning party was made complete with finger sandwiches and quaint desserts, and of course a serving of pink lemonade served in fine China or flavored milk in tea cups. The girls danced the hours away and played pass the parcel. Party favours included pretty pink tutus and "pearl" necklaces, and ribbon wands which were handed out in white couture shopping bags with thank you notes. (As ladies of leisure I thought it was important they walked away with a shopping bag full of pearls and other pretties.) It was a lot of fun to create.
Hope you enjoy the photos.
Vanilla cake with piped swirls was a sweet touch to the party

On the menu...

Personalised paper bunting flags, and a DIY ribbon background added a nice touch. To make a ribbon background all you need is a piece of string and a whole lot of ribbon in different colours and sizes, simply cut and tie to string... Voila a colourful touch to any dessert table, lolly buffet, or event. Tissue pom poms also helped to set the table off.
Ah- Tissue Tissue pom poms, totally gorgeous.

I love this "vintage" Lemonade crate, I can't remember the name of the shop that I bought it from, but It was in New Zealand, I bought it ages ago, and this Tea Party was the perfect place to use it. The mini glass milk bottles and straws were from The Little Big Company and were filled with Pink Lemonade, and accented with printables from                      Sweet Scarlett Designs

Sweets and Desserts were placed on indoor furniture outside, this helped with the Vintage girly theme. The table this is on actually was polished timber before, so of course I had to paint it white to match my theme, probably much to my husbands horror, but he agreed it did look good in the end.

Found this beautiful bunting flag at Pink Frosting, among other party supplies.

Hugs with the birthday girls BFF. Awwwwwwwww

Cupcakes in teacups... Simply bake your cupcakes inside teacups, and ice with pretty swirls of butter cream icing. These were very popular, all the mums (and dads) loved them.

Beautiful Vintage bedroom side drawers were delightful to place desserts on.
Personalised water bottles added a nice touch, and sure helped when the weather warmed up.

Cake anyone?

Little girls are precious gifts, wrapped in love serene. Their dresses tied with sashes and futures tied with dreams.
