Held in a private courtyard, surrounded by high brick walls and beautiful established gardens, was a little tea party to celebrate Willow’s birthday. The girls enjoyed a fun afternoon of food, tea and activities like reading under the teepee, dressing up and playing with a pink wooden dollhouse.

Renee of Lottie and Me said that she wanted to produce something sweet and girlie, so she used a combination of lace, flowers and delicate pastel fabrics to create this vintage inspired tea party. The key colours were pastels in pink, mint and blue, with touches of white lace. The tables were adorned with flowers, books and a birdcage, the chairs were delightfully decorated with strips of fabric and bunting was strewn around the courtyard.

On the menu were classic tea party sweets like cake pops, cookies, marshmallows and cupcakes (all in pastel colours of course), which was perfect for a girlie afternoon in the sun.

To achieve the same feel for your little one’s birthday, keep the guest list to a minimum, organise a couple of key activities and make the tea party the core focus of the afternoon. Renee also suggests choosing no more than three key complementing colours and running them throughout the whole theme. The end result will be a sweet, simple birthday party that any little girl would find super magical.
