Yikes… it’s been a while since we’ve posted! Life has been pretty busy with events, work, and Jessica moving to a great new place. Over the summer we executed five events, which we will be posting very soon…I promise! The first I decided to show you was a bright and fun girls’ tea party. My coworker, Rachel, asked me to help with her goddaughter’s birthday party at her auntie’s house in Morada. It was the PERFECT place for a party with tons of old, shady trees, gazebos, bright green grass, tree house for the kids and two kitchens for food prep. Rachel is a super crafty lady, so we didn’t have to make much, just set-up and style while she prepared the food.
We used a variety of layered linens, tea cups, pots, vases with fresh flowers, and books to create the look of the table. The mother of the birthday girl made little favor bags with each girl’s name on it that included an adorable hair clip and pearl necklace.
I love love loved the effect of hanging all of the lanterns and poms across the table, and it wasn’t that hard to execute! They had tall metal poles attached to tires that worked perfectly. We had to anchor the poles to the trees so there was no bowing, but that was super simple.
The large frame and giant flowers made up the photo booth. Rachel made the frame out of molding at Home Depot that they cut for her. Since it was really light weight we hung it up with fishing line. I brought the giant flowers from Jessica’s tea party, and Rachel made two more as props.
The girls all dressed up in their best party clothes with matching American Girl dolls. How cute is that?
