A Tea Party Fit for a Princess


Yesterday I set-up a tea table, catered and served a tea party for a little girl turning three. I was sourced by a children's party production company to provide tea services for this event. They provided the Princess appearance, the dress-up and the entertainment. This was a last-minute booking, so we had to scramble to make it happen, and we did.

We had a great time. And the birthday girl was the cutest lil' thing I have ever seen, so full of personality! During the storybook time she kept jiggling her head so she could feel her clip-on earrings dangle. She was just adorable.

I have to say my "Strawberry Creamy-Dreamy" sandwiches were a hit with the girls! I had fun making them, and not only were they cute but very yummy too. Unfortunately I didn't have time to take a good shot of it, so I just cropped this from another pic. I don't think I will make the Mini Mac 'n Cheese bites again they were too much work and didn't turn out the way I made them in the past.

To view all the photos visit my gallery. Professional images will be available in a few weeks from my assistant and photographer Stephanie Warner.

Also, the Client was so hospitable because as we were setting up the party, she brought us teacups full of Chai tea, sweetened and with milk. I literally gulped mine it was so delicious. I had never had Chai taste so good! I kept asking the other girls if they wanted theirs, so I could finish it off! I'm still thinking about that cuppa and would love more!! Starbucks cannot compare to what she made!

Today I am really tired and need to catch up on everything I am supposed to be doing!

Happy 4th of July and I hope you had a fun and memorable holiday!

Thank you so much for the pictures. My six-year old girl would absolutely be in pink heaven.

It is no easy task to pull something like that off. And quickly, too! Good for you...

Wow. The party looks fabulous! Do you find that little girls prefer their tea cold rather than warm? I once attended a little girl tea party and the proprietor served cold tea from her tea pots. When I asked about that she told me that the little girls don't like their tea warm. What is your experience with that?

Actually I don't serve them tea, I use pink lemonade or apple juice.

If they are older, then I might use a lukewarm bubble gum or tutti-frutti sweetened tea.

But the former works best for children's "tea" parties...

What a lovely tea pary for a little girl!!! I just love your blog!

I am helping plan a very small women's retreat in the fall and would love to give each woman a tea cup and saucer, but the price of them here at flea markets, antique stores, and garage sales in my area (Washington DC) is very high... any tips on where I might find some at a good (low) price???
