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:
Party: Odette's Vintage Tea Party for her 4th birthday
Organised by: Anni and Matthew (Milk and Honey Photography) in collaboration with Lyn Yu (Rosebud Designs)
Location: Agape Organic Restaurant and Bar
Theme: Vintage Tea Party
Invitation: Paper bunting invitation by Lyn Yu from Rosebud Designs
Cake: A teapot cake, made my Odette's Mum Anni - lovingly handmade :)
Party food: Agape Restaurant and Bar
Decorations: Rosebud Designs
Games/activities: Pin the teacup on the teapot, musical chairs, pass the parcel, vintage dress-ups, personal portraits
Tips: Put together fast-paced games for 4-year-olds, especially after all the excitement. It was fun to scour some Vinnies stores for old-style costumes for the kids to play with and dress-up in.
Something special: Lyn from Rosebud Designs gave Odette a special vintage bear with handmade clothes and hat as a special present, which Odette just loved.
