I have so many pictures from Stella’s tea party that I’m going to have to do two posts for it. Today I’ll focus on the party decorations since Becca gave me that responsibility. I was happy to obliged. Thankfully the weather held up after a week of rain and it was a gorgeous Fall day. To my relief, we were able to hold the entire party outside!
I rented an eight-foot children’s table and chairs, and we squeezed 16 girls around it. I found matching gingham fabric to the invitations and sewed a tablecloth. From my tissue paper supply box, I made four paper pom pom garlands and strung it across the table. They were supported by six-foot wooden stakes that I spray painted pink.
I gorilla-glued cheap teacups and saucers together to make a tall flower centerpiece. And made a lollipop garden centerpiece with “stella’s tea party” labels.
Wow! So pretty and dainty, perfect for little Stella. Happy birthday Stella Bella!
Great post. I had a tea party for my twin girls when they turned 4. They are so sweet and it's fun to do it before they grow up and get their own ideas about what kind of party to have – – couldn't do it today. Maybe it will come full circle and we will one day again. Anyway, lovely blog. I have been following for a while. I have a dilemma today though. I have recently viewed a blog post, made a mental note to go back to it, then forgot which blog I was on. So, my question is have you recently posted a blog about a new rug in your kitchen? Thanks.
Nope, sorry Angela. Not me. But I need a new rug for my kitchen, so let me know what blog it was. I've been on the search of a kitchen rug that is stylish, durable and easy to clean. Thanks!
The table setting and cupcakes look luscious. I want one of those cupcakes!

I am in AWE! Birthday parties around these parts are NOTHING like that! NOTHING! I don't know if I should be happy or sad! ha ha ha! I think if I had to plan something like that, I would be a nutcase since I lack the talent and skills that you have! It turned out absolutely beautiful!
Gorgeous!! I'm sure she was in HEAVEN!
