Parisian Tea Party

Parisian tea party

This summer I got to reconnect with an old friend, Amy, to do the set-up for her daughter Jadyn’s 7th birthday with a Parisian tea party theme. Jadyn was so excited to have a fancy party with all of her friends! Her favorite color is pink, but Amy didn’t want a pink overload so we added in a light aqua with black and white accents. This party was girly and light and oh so precious!

To decorate the table, we started with a foundation of white damask linens and a black and white polka dot table runner. Each place setting contained a white dinner plate with a tea cup and saucer. We added various tea pots, books, Eiffel Towers and flowers down the length of the table. Notice the “place mats”? They’re just basic 12×12 papers with stamped Parisian images to create a customized look!

Some friends of my parents gifted me with this ADORABLE vintage ice cream parlor dinette set that I knew would look perfect at this party. I added some photos of Jadyn and her family to personalize the area. The large white frame is from IKEA, with Hobby Lobby Parisian fabric and a decorated number 7.

Amy really wanted tissue poms as part of the décor. Since there wasn’t anything available to hang them from, we ruffled them to leave a flat back so we could adhere them to a silver back drop. Jessica designed the adorable labels for all of the candies and used the French word for each item. I made the stand-up name using chipboard letters and small pieces of wood from Hobby Lobby that I spray-painted hot pink.

Amy served lemonade to the girls since they are a bit young for actual tea. We added a few touches of lace to the jars to spruce them up a bit.

I love how this simple backyard party turned out!
