My sweet Olivia turned five last month. She is such a girly girl and wanted a tea party.
We set up in the backyard. I used yards of fabric I had for the tablecloths.
We invited our girly friends.
It was the cutest thing I have ever seen. All these little girls knew exactly what to do. They sat and chatted and mixed their tea.
Marvin wore a tie for the special occasion and doubled as the butler. :)
I made these flowers out of napkins and I found the tutorial HERE.
I made these cupcake toppers in Photoshop and had my mini helpers cut them out. I got the cute vintage tea cup graphic on my favorite blog HERE, The Graphics Fairy. If you look closely, the teacups have Olivia's name on them.
I got all of the tea cups and saucers from the Goodwill for 50 cents. That way they had real tea cups and I didn't care if any of them got broken. But I have to say, all these little girls had really good manners. See those little salt shakers? They actually had sugar in them and everyone had their own sugar shaker. By the end of the party, the girls were just eating sugar straight from the shaker! So cute!
I made real crumpets. If you have never made crumpets, they are delicious! Kinda like thicker pancakes. We spread lemon curd and raspberry jelly and then cream on top of that.
Olivia had a great time and enjoyed her friends. Thank you to all her sweet friends that joined us. Happy fifth birthday, Livi!
