Best Kids Parties: Tea Party

My Party

Name: Charlotte (4)
Location: Provo, UT

My daughter, Charlotte, just turned 4! To celebrate I decided to do a tea party with a few of her friends.

She got a mini tea party set for Christmas and has just loved it. So I decided why not? The theme was set, now all I had to do was put it all together. I took the pendant from her room (that I made for her a while ago) and all of the papers I got on super clearance at a local craft store (that went out of business).

The large print was to cover the TV. It was printed at a local blueprint printer and only cost me $6. Tissue paper flowers were handcrafted using Martha Stewart's tutorial. Party favors are from Target's dollar spot and were 50% off. Can't beat that! I designed and printed my own stickers for the party favors and napkin rings.

I designed the invitations which was the most fun to do. My daughters name is also my hand calligraphy. I wanted super easy snacks for the food. I made pb & j and cut them out in circles with a cookie cutter. I dipped marshmallows in white chocolate colored blue and sprinkles. We also had raspberries, strawberries, cupcakes and jelly beans. The cake was made by swirling colored frosting in a swirl to make them look like roses.

Thanks Pauline! Readers, see many more photos of Charlotte's party on Sweet Muffin Suite.
