Sweet Summer Tea Party

I showed you the sneak peeks of the invitation well here are the pictures. DeAnn Arnold Photography took these wonderful pics of such a wonderful party! All the sweet little girls had a great time at our Sweet Summer Tea Party and their mommies did too. We can't wait to do it again next year!

The girls started off the party by decorating foam tea pot picture frames with the most adorable stickers and letters. Next they decorated their own tea party hats with the help of their mommies.

Next the girls moved into the living room to their table to sample many yummy treats including cupcakes with adorable custom royal icing flowers, flower shaped turkey and cheese sandwiches, iced cookies, cheesecake fruit tarts and fruit and cheese trays. Pink Lemonade and Sweet Southern Iced Tea were served too! Some of the guest had food allergies so all the food except the chicken salad sandwiches were egg and peanut free. That includes the cookies AND cupcakes!

Magnolia Creative Co. designed all the party collateral such as cupcake toppers, tea cup tags, favor tags, table tents, the mantle display and even hand painted serving pieces to match the invitation.

After their tummies were full the girls received their favors, vintage purse paper bags containing candy necklaces and bracelets and a butterfly shaped sucker. They were even kind enough to pose on the front porch in a group shot for their mommies.

This Sweet Summer Tea Party could not have happened
without these wonderful ladies and vendors.

  1. Sounds like this sweet summer tea party was just blasting! Anyway, hosting the superman themed birthday bash for my son’s was also a wonderful experience for me. He demanded an outdoor superman bash so I had reserved one of most popular venues in San Francisco.
