Inspiration for a Vintage Tea Party....

My beautiful daughter Olivia is turning 6 this March and to celebrate I will be piecing together a lovely Vintage Tea Party right in our backyard!

I found a stunning dress in lilac which will be the centre of the party's styling. The colour scheme for the tea party will be lilac, baby blue and cream/white!

Olivia's guests will enjoy delicious tea party food consisting of sandwiches, cookies, cake, cheesecake, meringues plus more!! As a "thankyou for coming gift" each guest will receive a lovely fascinator for their hair and a gorgeous ribbon wand...I wanted to stay away from the typical favors such as lollies and cheap party toys!

I want to create for Olivia and her friends a lovely little rest place where they can sit and enjoy some time out and so I will place cushions and a blanket, within reach of the food!! So they can take the time to sit and chat and relax!

For a little bit of fun, I will have a photo booth set up so we can capture some fun and silly moments of the girls and would love to have them take a photo home with them on the day as their momento of the day.
So, these are my thoughts and now to bring it to life!!

Here are some of my visions for her:

 Vintage tea cups and saucers

Delicious cake

I look forward to her day and I cannot wait to share it with you all!

Some Gorgeous Finds...

I just love finding pretty and exciting ideas and products which are great to style with !!

Here I will share some with you which include table and buffet styling.....

A gorgeous vintage coin purse with roses, used as an alternative for place cards

Glass Hanging Candle Holders {from Pink Frosting}, the uses for these are endless!

Antique Photo Frames, another alternative to the traditional place cards

An adorable little bird squeaker toy {by Sweet Little Birdy} a great styling idea and present for a little angel

A stunning chandelier style centrepiece

A Sunday Treat...

I love playing around with designing and styling so much, that while I was awaiting the arrival of my gorgeous children to return home from a weekend away, I decided to put a little something together for them to enjoy! {I even baked the yummy chocolate cake!}

The two pieces of furniture used in this shoot are two of my favourite things !! I thought it was appropriate to use them.

This is my Sunday Treat.....

The fresh hydrangeas and iceberg roses are fresh from my garden and blended in so well !!

I am happy to report that my children's little eyes lit up when they saw what was waiting for them !!
One happy mumma here !! xo
