A Garden Tea Party Plan
The feeling I get when I see pictures from a party I had a hand in planning is like no other. It is a mix of intense pride, excitement, and pure joy. I love when I see a vision I had for someone and their family come to life. This party was extra special because it was for my best friend’s 5 year old daughter, Kyla. Kyla could not be sweeter. Her smile is infectious, she has a heart of gold, and is always dressed to the nines down to her massive, yet perfect hair bow. They just don’t get better than Ky, and I felt honored to help her plan her special 5th birthday party!
It’s Time for Tea!
I hear tea party and my mind immediately starts thinking of little girls in fancy dresses covered in their mother’s jewelry, sitting at a lace covered table sipping juice from eclectic tea cups and sharing sugar cookies. This was the feel I wanted sweet Kyla’s mom, Mallory, to have when she opened her garden tea party plan.
“I knew I wanted Kyla and her girlfriends to have a tea party at a local tea room, but didn’t have the time to think about all the details involved in planning the party,” said the California supermom of three kids under age five. I was thrilled to step in and help plan the perfect party for Kyla and her littlest girlfriends.
“Having all the ideas laid out in one place was really helpful. I could easily see which decorations I wanted to buy and which I wanted to DIY, like the big flower number.”
Incorporating flowers was a must for this spring party, and the tea room had the birthday girl sitting under a fancy trellis by the tea table. This was the perfect spot to hang a giant number 5 covered in flowers. I found a couple for purchase that I linked in the party plan, and also a great tutorial to DIY (which is the option Mallory went with). Fresh flowers in adorable sparkly vases, and even flower confetti were included in the party plan as well.
Tea parties are a fancy, special occasion, so we needed to add a little sparkle to the party. A make your own bracelet station was perfect. The little guests could pick and choose their beads and charms, and model their designs during the party. I also wanted an activity that the girls could do at their own pace. They could eat, talk, and work on their bracelet. “The girls LOVED creating their own bracelets. They kept going up to each other showing off what they made. It was so cute. I loved it too because it was a nice party favor for the girls to take home!” said Mallory.
“We had a great party. The girls had a blast, the tea room was adorable, and all the details felt personal and special. The plan made it less stressful so I could enjoy my big girl turning 5!” Mallory, an incredibly talented photographer (I wasn’t exaggerating when I said she was a supermom!), captured all the special moments of the day.
The party was beautiful and full of special memories…my only regret is that I couldn’t be there to celebrate one of my favorite little ladies!
