A Birthday "Tea" Party :)

Our littlest "charmer" turned 5 yesterday :)

So we decided to host a "Tea Party" on the patio to celebrate.

We brought a little table and chairs outside.  Layered up the linens and added "chair covers"

...and pink.

I've been collecting these sweet vintage linens since before she was born.

"Real flowers"...of course ;)

We added place cards on old hinges...

...and invited a friend.

On the Menu...
1.  Vanilla Yogurt and Strawberry Parfaits...with sprinkles.

2.  Peanut Butter and Honey Sandwiches...cut with little flower cookie cutters.

3.  Brownie Bites with Frosting...and more sprinkles.

And instead of real tea, we had what we called "Pink-a-ccinos"
(steamed milk with strawberry syrup and pink whipped topping)
As you can see by that face...they were a hit :)

Thanks for the visit, have a great day!!

Chat soon,


  1. I always love a tea party and with 5 girls, we've had quite a few here! The table is so cute! As is your daughter!

  2. Little girls and tea parties . . . that's what is good about life.

  3. Laurel,

    You are brilliant! I love the idea of place cards on hinges! What a fun way to add a little extra to a party setting :)

    Have a blessed and wonderful day!

  4. Adorable, Laurel! I don't know what's cuter - your decorations or your little princess! Happy 5th birthday to your sweetie! Hugs, Kerri

  5. So glad you're introducing her to the delights of a tea party -- us girls never tire of them I think! Love the way you decorated and did the sandwiches!

  6. Everything looks so sweet! What a fun idea!!

  7. She is so cute in her princess dress. I will be visiting my grands in Nashville and they are all about dressing up in their princess dresses.

  8. Happy Birthday to your little Charmer! Every Princess deserves a good Mad Tea Party... my Grand-Daughter and I try to have them as often as we can. Looks like you all had a wonderful Tea Party and the Birthday Girl looks Radiant!

  11. What a thrill for this sweet little beauty. She is loving every minute of it. Love all the old linens and the hinges with place cards. Need to find a way to use mine.

  12. She is just a cute as can be! I'm sure her birthday tea party was so much fun. Your little touches are fabulous...the hinges, vintage linens, mason jar vase, chair covers, and of course all the yummy food.

  15. Don't know how I got here but I'm glad I did. I pinned several of your projects and have determined to do at least of them! Thanks for the junky stuff. Love it. Linda
