Vintage high tea party for Odette's 4th Birthday

You know the birthday party is going to be special when the invitation is a gorgeous string of vintage paper bunting, tucked into a box and wrapped with ribbon. Lucky Odette was treated to a very special high tea for nine friends at Agape organic restaurant in Sydney, decorated with help from Rosebud Designs stylist Lyn Yu and photographed by her talented Dad Matthew from Milk and Honey Photography.

The kids loved the dessert 'stands' decorated with ribbon fringing and a kewpie doll - a sweet alternative to a dessert table. Odette's Mum Anni out-did herself with the teapot birthday cake and vision for the event. It was a fun morning of excited four-year-olds playing dress-ups, party games and devouring the delicious high tea. Anni shares her tips for this special event:
