Mother's day is quickly approaching and I found this cutest mother and daughter tea party. It was for a little girl's birthday but would make an awesome Mother's day party as well. This creative mom Chelsea from Life Frosting searched Goodwill's and HomeGoods for tea cups and saucers. A girl after my own heart!
Here is a description of the activities in Chelsea's words:
As soon as the girls and their moms got to my house, they started to decorate little hats and purses with flowers and ribbon. Then they came over to the living room and I started to tell them a little bit about tea parties. As I did, Elle handed them white satin gloves and a pair of pearls so they would be really fancy for the pictures. Then the moms and daughters got their pictures taken in the little booth. (a hung up flowery sheet and another one on the floor with a white chair).Description of food decor:
(most everything was cut in flower shapes and topped with a fancy toothpick-with a paper butterfly of flower at the top) I made different cake plates to hold the food using a china plate glued to an upside down dessert cup. They were all different heights.
The birthday girl gave a small copy of Tea for Ruby (which I found in cereal boxes...so I have a ton of cheerios at my house) and said goodbye to her little friends.
I just love that so much !!! Things do not have to be expensive to be wonderful. I love when things come from the heart! I didn't even know wonderful stuff still came in cereal boxes. When I was a kid that was the best part seeing what neat stuff you would get from the cereal box!! That was my Toys-R-Us...hee hee!!I get tons of emails from readers although I can't post all your parties, I really enjoy reading them and appreciate the time you spent sending them to me. I received an email that really touched my heart. A mom of three, one of her daughter's birthday is approaching and she has a total of $60 to spend on the entire party and wanted some super duper budget tips. Sarah, I will do one better~ next week I will feature a party that I will put together only spending a total of $60. So stay tuned!
