Lavender Tea Party

A friend of mine had the cute idea to have a little girls tea party for her daughter's birthday. Fortunately it was a beautiful, sunny day here in Florida and perfect for an outdoor tea party! Since I love parties, especially girly ones, I offered to help with the decorations and to make cookies. I might have to steal her idea and have a tea party for my daughter's birthday this Spring!

This amazing teapot cake and cupcakes were made by Sugar Coated Sweets and Treats

I got the teapot cookie cutter from www.cheapcookiecutters.com and used my usual recipes of The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies and Sugar Cookie Icing (only change I made was using vanilla instead of almond extract in the icing).

I used various shades and textures of purple ribbon for this Ribbon Topiary (which I had actually made previously for a Tangled party). Here is the Ribbon Topiary Tutorial.

This was a very pretty party. My friend did a great job with the table settings, fancy hats for the little girls, and scones and other finger foods. Just looking at these pictures makes me crave tea and sweets!

  3. I'm pretty sure my daughter will appreciate a tea party in lavender. She loves lavender a lot! Thanks for this post! It will be easier for us to prepare the party. I'm sure the adults who'll attend the party will also love the set up, especially when we serve our favorite tea! :)
