I can not believe my baby girl is 3 years old. She’s the sweetest and silliest and sassiest little girl, and I love every single thing about her.
We’ve done big parties for her every year so far and wanted this year to be simple. Ha! Nothing we do is simple 🤦🏼♀️ But we did want her to have a friend birthday party because this is the first year she has her own little friends. I thought a tea party would be so fun!
We did the party on her actual birthday, a Wednesday, at noon. Strangest time but all the weekends in December are hectic and since it was last minuteish we couldn’t plan for a Saturday. But it was fine, most of her friends mom’s are stay at home moms anyway, so they were able to make it.
This is also the first year we did the party on her actual birthday, and I have to say, it wasn’t my favorite. I felt like Jesse and I were so preoccupied getting things ready, and she was so preoccupied by her friends and everything that we didn’t get to celebrate her as a family. For her other birthday we take the day and just spend it together doing things she loves. I know she felt special, but I would have liked a day of quality time together.
Anyways, here are all the photos from her party. It was super cute, the kids loved having their little tea party and then running around like maniacs. We had everyone dress fancy. We wanted the theme to be a mix between Alice in wonderland and Winnie the Pooh, kind of a disheveled and vintage yet fancy tea party. I think we nailed it 👌🏼
We got all the tea cups, tea pot, plates and saucers, and rabbit figurines (Jesse’s find, and totally amazing) from Goodwill, made a table out of a sheet of wood and cinderblocks from Home Depot ($12 🙌🏼), 2 yards of nude/blush fabric from Walmart, and cushions from around our house. We also did a little crown decorating table which they loved! And one of my friends brought play dough as Ever’s gift that they all ended up playing with (and sticking in their tea cups 😆).
For food we made a delicious salad for the mamas, and almond butter + jelly and turkey + cheese sandwiches for the kiddos, with strawberries and apple juice as their “tea” .
Oh! And Jesse and I spent allll morning making these little cakes that said “eat me”. They were so delicious and so cute. And there was literally a layer of powdered sugar on our kitchen floor after.
