Princess Tea Party

Princess Tea Party


For my daughters 6th birthday we decided on a Princess Tea Party. This turned out to be such a lovely little party that I’m likely to do an impromptu tea party for my daughter and her friends every now and then.

My MIL loved doing all the shopping for the tea cups and tea pots which she ended up giving to her as her birthday present. We got 9 teacups all different patterns picked up from goodwills and other second hand stores along the way. I borrowed a lace table cloth and placed it on top of a pink plastic table cloth on a kids pre-school type table. Then I used glass snack trays and tiny little plastic silver spoons and forks. I folded the napkins so the each had the word princess facing out like a pace card. It was a beautiful setting.

Then on another table I put the cake I made which was a small two tiered pink cake with a castle that I cut out using my cricket as the cake topper. Then I put some scrapbooking flowers on it for decoration. I waited till the frosting was dried to put the flowers on so that I can still use them on my scrapbook pages. 🙂

The first thing the girls did was do a little dress up if they forgot to come in their “princess best” as requested on the invites. I bought them each a princess crown (from the dollar tree, 4/pack).

Then they got to decorate some wands and then apply some make up with parental permission. They had so much fun with the make up and it was just shadow and blush and lip gloss (applied with q-tips) from the dollar tree.

After that we started our tea party. I made heart shaped pb&j sandwiches with a cookie cutter. Oreo truffles from a recipe that I got from pinterest, but instead of using milk chocolate I used vanilla almond bark and pink sprinkles. I also bought some red licorice, and some pink and white marshmallow candy things, and the pink and white circus animal cookies with sprinkles. I bought these princess cupcake liners at the dollar tree but since I decided not to make cupcakes I used them as fresh fruit cups. I put chopped up cantaloupe, watermelon, and grapes in them. Then of course I served tea, and for those that didn’t care for tea, apple cider. While they were having their tea party I read the fancy nancy tea party book to them, or part of it anyway.

I also bought plastic “wine” glasses from dollar tree and served Martinelli’s in them with the cake. It was all very fancy.   They all loved it. After that was presents and then it was pick up time.
