Party Planning - Tea Party Style
Tea Party the 2 Year old Way *Hints and Tips*
- The teapot invites, which were cut out by hand from free printable templates from Pinterest, I picked up the paper in lidl ages ago and the invite inside is a picture of Mini miss and the detail just typed up and printed up at home.
- The hanging door decoration you may recognize from a previous post of mine "Pinterest Mammy" .
- My fire guard which can be an eye sore I decorated with a daisy chain of flower lights from Penny's, battery operated and little butterfly from the €2 shop Easter collection.
- I decided then to make my mantle piece a vocal point and on it is my wedding brooch bouquet, lanterns from Penny's, Mini miss cake smash pictures and her teddies and a little tea cup candle.
- If u look very closely in the reflection of the mirror u will see *glitter balloons hanging from the roof, oh yes as you may have guessed these where from Pinterest, I did try getting pictures of them but they just would picture well nothing like the pinned pin i had in Pinterest but the kids loved them. *glitter balloons - blow balloon up, smear with pvc glue (i found kitchen roll the best), shake with glitter, tie coloured ribbon on and hang straight away.glitter-balloons - pinterest
- A selection of cupcakes which i love to bake. I buy my cupcake cases and decorations every where but the best places I find are, Tesco, Home Store and More Asda and Decobake. Edible papers and character cupcake toppers I use the internet. I used to make my own toppings then I discovered betty crocker toppings the best short cut ever, they taste lovely, they pipe so easy and keep an eye out you'll always find them on special for €2, Ms Betty is always hiding in my bakery cupboard.
- The pink wafer fingers are dipped in white chocolate and decorated with sprinkles this is a lovely age appropriate Tea Party idea.
- I popped the sweets into little tea cups instead of bowls jsut to keep with the theme.
- The cake I made and as like many of the "great" half of it is fake! The tea pot is a polystyrene ball covered and decorated with rolled icing. It took an hour and half to make and my only tip when making something like this is make sure you have a clear head and no distractions.
- The trays, plates and tiered holders are yet again things I've picked up along the way, if you're going to get into doing bits for parties pick up things when you see them, as you when your looking for them you wouldn't find them.
