Tea for Two {Charlotte Leigh’s 2nd Birthday}

 

Last Saturday, we celebrated our daughter’s 2nd Birthday. Her birthday is in March, but the arrival of our 3rd child in January has us a little behind.

Here are few highlights of this sweet little party we had with a few of her little friends.

Charlotte’s Invitation. I found a teacup template online and used scented drawer liner paper for the teacup.

 

scarves and hats and jewelry
The dress up area. Hats, scarves and jewelry. I found those cute little suitcases in my favorite shopping destination: downtown McKinney!

putting together a teapot picture frame
I found these cute teapot picture frames through oriental trading.

 

tea time!
I found a super cute book about tea parties. I’m so sad I didn’t get a good picture of the tables. I found the hanging tulle through a friend raising funds for a ministry. Win-Win!

 

food
This is unfortunately the aftermath of the party but we had sweet tea (of course), lots of yummy fruit, teapot cookies and Strawberry Shortcake. Notice the bell on the table? We rang this to announce tea time! It has a beautiful butterfly on it. 

 

 

mason jar silverware
I found this metal caddy at a thrift store. {surprise, surprise} I bought the mason jars at the grocery store and the plastic ware at the dollar tree, napkins, plates and straws from Target. 
eating food
I created the place mats with the same drawer line paper. I used chalkboard cardstock for the place cards.

 

 

sweet little friends
Aren’t these the cutest tea party littles you ever saw?! In the trees I hung instagram photographs of Charlotte.

Happy 2nd Birthday Charlotte Leigh!

 

I am really proud of how Charlee’s party turned out. Perfectionist me could tell you a million things that I forgot or didn’t do the way I envisioned but those sweet important little people didn’t notice. And that is truly all that matters.
