My dd turned 7 last week and we decided it was time for her first tea party! The whole thing was inspired by some of Dianne’s gorgeous papers, right down to choosing the tea pot and cups! I know, probaly a bit backwards in my approach, but it worked!:) First, I used the Loving Hands Petalcards for the invitations, complete with vellm inserts, then the Little Man papers and Simply Marvy Alpha for the napkin rings/placeholders, and the Pursonally Yours template for the favors. These came out sooo cute! They were real little purses with velcro closures under the buttons, and jeweled headbands for the straps. They held “princess” buttos, candies and lipgloss for the little ladies. The girls had choc-dipped strawberries, croissants with strawberry cream cheese, and iced cookies in the shapes of a dress, hat, purse, high-heeled shoe, teapot and teacups! Total Fun!
