Tea Party

Recently my daughter Allison turned 8! How can that be? I remember driving to the hospital for her to be born and now she is 8? Time celebrate her birthday she invited all the girls in her class over for a tea party. Above is the invitation we made for the party. We stamped the SU image and punched with the circle cutter, Allison colored the tea pots with SU markers. Then we matted it on Tempting Turquoise scallop circles. The ribbon I bought at Michaels craft store and we used the SU swiss dot embossing folder and my Big Shot to texture the white cardstock. Came out cute huh?
Above is the "Tea Table" I borrowed the table cloth and these adorable tea pots and cute little tea cups and saucers. We had all kinds of goodies including cucumber sandwiches, scallop shaped mini cheese sandwiches and those adorable strawberry sandwiches which were so easy and cute! I used vanilla wafers and whipped cream cheese spread then topped each with a half of a strawberry! Kind of like a mini cheesecake. The girls used tea cups and either had decaf tea or juice. So fancy.
Each girl came in her tea party dresses. We did manage to get one nice picture of them together, although Allison does have her eyes closed (second from left bottom).

Below is what we gave the girls for party favors. Mini composition notebooks, RSVP pens and bookmarks. I used pinks and greens, and the back does have some purple colored paper.
I had made similar goodie bag gifts for a friend of mine for her daughter's birthday party and loved the idea so I repeated. We wrapped them in cellophane bags with little princess crowns.
The after noon was a success, although the girls did get bored after a while and went outside to jump on the trampoline! So funny, the ground was littered with dress shoes and all the girls were bouncing on the trampoline in party dresses!

Well, Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
