Nellie's Colorful Tea Party

Pin It!
Want to know a secret?

My sweet little granddaughter just turned 4.

{Keep in mind I am a mother of three SONS!}
We invited all the local royalty  to celebrate
with a Tea Party.

{By the way, Nellie wore her great-grandmother's jewelry at the party.}
I made some of the decorations in advance & 
I'll link you to the posts about them.
{For instance, CLICK HERE if you want to read
about the pink mirror in the photo below.}

Here's my sweet Nellie sipping Jones soda.
To read about how I made the 
teacup centerpiece, CLICK HERE.
{PS - the little teapot in the foreground is from 
TJ Maxx. I was able to find green, blue,
& orange & they were only $5.99 each!}
I bought the large picture frame {below} at our local 
thrift store {D.I.} for $10 & sprayed it pink.
It made a great "photo booth"!
We {and of course when I say "we" I mean Hunny!} 
hung it from the tree, because we knew it
would probably be too heavy for the girls to hold.
By the way, if you're having a tea party for 
little girls, I recommend getting help from
some older girls with lots of energy!
Chloe & Bailey were so great to dress up
& help keep the little princesses happy.
Here's the adorable Princess Brinley . . . 


I just love this turquoise mirror. 
It's another thrift store find. 
CLICK HERE to see the before & after 
of the mirror & how I made the 
colorful pendant on the fence.
For the sandwiches, I called the bakery & asked
them to make pink, green & blue bread for me.
They asked if I wanted it bright & I said "Yes!".
I had pictured a green a little darker than mint.
Well, when they said "bright", they meant "bright"
as you can see in the photo below!
{I wish I'd been more specific.}
I just love these striped & polka dot straws -
ordered from Shop Sweet Lulu. So fun.
For my post about the pink chandelier
which we hung from the trees,
CLICK HERE!
{Hint - it used to be brass - I paid $10 for it!}

Happy Birthday 
my little princess!

  11. What an amazingly adorable party! Love the mirror, chandelier and the photo booth frame. Your granddaughter is one lucky little girl! (I have sons too so I can imagine myself going crazy with girl stuff if one of them has a daughter, but they are three so I have awhile to wait. LOL :)

  13. Wow, that is an amazing party! I absolutely love the theme and hopefully I'll have a girl someday so I can use it :) You put so much work into every detail and it SHOWS! Not sure if that will happen though...between my family & my husbands family our parents have 7 grandsons--no girls!!
