Alright alright... it's been a little over a week and I finally found some time to sit down and work on a feature for everything for our little Miss Caroline's Birthday Tea Party!
Per usual, I said I was scaling way back, but totally went nuts the week of and couldn't help myself... to our friends and family who made it for our sweet CC's special day, I cannot thank you enough. It was THE cutest party and I'm excited to share it with each of you, too...
First of all, I want to share the small business love with some friends who made this party possible. A friend recommended TracyLynn of Lil' Swee-Tea-Party and I cannot speak highly enough about her tea party presentation and themes... she has a ton of options available, though we decided on a classic, feminine tea party and she made it SO much easier on me. I sent her the details of our color palette, preferences and such and she took care of the rest [and yes, she brings the china, activities, party favors, dress-up trunk, etc... lifesaver!!]. Another local vendor who helped us pull this off was M&M Special Events. Lara and her staff helped me select the perfect Chiavari Chairs, Tables, and Light Blue Linens for the tea party and it made for the sweetest tablescape ever! Moving right along, my gals at Puffy Muffin pulled off another showstopper cake, this time combining confetti and strawberry layers with light aqua buttercream frosting and gorgeous flowers for additional decor. Of course I have to give props to my girlfriend Sarah via Little Lovely Designs... chalkboards always on point and THE best ever!! And finally, to my paper and graphic extraordinaire, Kate via Orange Valentine Design, you always go above and beyond to make my events so very special and the sweet details tie everything together perfectly... thank you SO much to these friends who make it fun to throw parties!
Now onto the pictures:
