My dear friend Rochelle has the most creative ideas for her children’s birthday parties! I am over the moon in love with this Tea Party Birthday she hosted for her daughter. I know plenty of little girls that would love to get dressed up and have a proper little tea party complete with adorable finger foods and sweet treats!
Tea Party Birthday Invitations:
To play a bit on Alice in Wonderland she did such a cute DIY Tea Party Invitation! I’m a firm believer in making sure the invites help the guests know what kind of party it’s going to be.
Tea Party Birthday Decorations:
A floral tablecloth topped with a vase of beautiful flowers decorated the table. Large paper doilies were used as place settings and small ones were used to make a darling garland on the wall. Each chair back was tied with a bow in sparkly tulle. Cute!
Tea Party Food:
What’s a tea party birthday without little finger foods? Instead of tea, the girls enjoyed cocoa and lemonade. Rochelle shopped around to various thrift stores to find tea cups and saucers for the party (I LOVE the idea of a mismatched table of teacups!) If you can’t find them at your thrift shops – Amazon has these adorable plastic Tea Party Cups with Straw and Top (what mom isn’t grateful for a lid on a drink for the little ones?).
Aren’t the “Eat Me” and “Drink Me” picks totally adorable?! She made them herself and glued them around toothpicks.
The birthday girl’s favorite foods were on the menu: noodles, rolls, Parmesan crusted chicken and broccoli – all served bite size. She served some with appetizer forks like these: Mini Appetizer Forks
For dessert she served chocolate dipped strawberries, chocolate covered brownies, chocolate cake pops and homemade resees peanut butter cups. All bite size. 🙂
Tea Party Birthday Activities:
Each guest was invited to wear a hat and dress up if they wanted to. The games were “Queen of Heart Says” (rather than Simon Says) and Hide the Key (played like Hot & Cold).
