This past weekend I hosted a tea party birthday for Sonata and I would love to share all the details of what I planned so that you can use some of my ideas for your own little ones tea party.
The Invitations & Decor
I had custom invitations, banner, and favor tags designed by the amazing shop BellaLuElla. The shop owner did an amazing job and was a pleasure to work with!
For the party decor I didn't want to go over the top since I wanted the focus to be more on the table and food so I hung up a few party lanterns and pennant over the party table. I covered the tables in pink tablecloths and had a few silk flower arrangements of peonies and roses added to the tables.The tableware came from Party City and the beautiful tea pot and cups were purchased from Roses & Teacups.
An arts & crafts table was set up for the girls to decorate their own construction paper tea pots and make their Victorian fans. I also set up an area to play dress up!
To create the dress up area, I took a plastic bin and filled it with tiaras, fairy wings, scarves, necklaces and bracelets for the girls to play with. I then set my door mirror up against the wall so they can admire their new look! (The first photo in this post has a photo of the dress up area behind Sonata.)
Food & Drink
I decided to go with a naturally decaffeinated tea because small children and caffeine don't quite mix! The tea I chose was the yummy rooibos tea. If you haven't tried this tea yet go pick up a box from your local grocery store. It's delicious! You can also try the honeybush tea if they don't have the rooibos kind. The flavor is quite similar and they're both caffeine free.
Each little girl got to take home their very own plastic tea set, a handmade bracelet with a tea pot charm, a tea cup cookie, and a tea packet containing the tea we had at the party.
Overall this was so much fun planning and hosting. Sonata was so happy and had such a great time. I can't even count how many hugs I got from her throughout the day.
