Organised by: Mum Steph Bond-Hutkin (that's me!)
Location: Sydney, NSW
Theme: High Tea party
Invitation: DIY high tea printable invitation from Mr Printables.
The Party Parlour), and topped with pearl sugar balls, sparkly S, and mini bunting - made using washi tape, ribbon and a wooden skewer.
Party food: My Mum made sausage rolls, mini cupcakes, chocolate slice bites, vegemite sandwiches, cream cheese sandwiches, fairy bread, and raspberry scones (recipe from the Frankie Afternoon Tea book).
My friend Renay made the cute marshmallow tea cups (so kind!):
I made coconut ice slice bites and chocolate balls (both recipes from Frankie Afternoon Tea book), raspberry jellies topped with whipped cream and strawberries.
Pink hanging lanterns.
Cardboard hanging gem decorations from kikki.K.
Tissue paper flowers handmade by me (here's a good tutorial to make similar flowers on the Design Every Day blog).
Freshly picked azaleas and cherry blossom branches.
crossover dress (ballet) from eeni meeni miini moh and a tiara birthday gift from her aunt Justine.
Many hands make light work - for a high tea party like this that doesn't have a strict theme, take up offers from generous friends and family to bring a plate of treats. I was lucky to have my Mum who made so many treats for the table, and my friend Renay who brought a gorgeous tray of tiny marshmallow tea cups.
Something Special: I bought a fancy sparkly headband for each guest that they could choose on arrival and take home with them. Instead of making up goodie bags beforehand, I just filled up some sweet paper party bags from Love Mae with leftover goodies from the high tea stands and a few extra heart marshmallows to take home.
vintage birthday high tea party also here on Bondville is gorgeous, and there are lots more kids' party ideas right here.
