{Real Parties} Tea Party

I'm so excited to share this tea party with you!  Having two boys, I really rely on my clients parties to give me my girly party fix.

My friend/neighbor/client Lynda came to me with the theme that her precious daughter Gabriela selected.  She didn't really want to have the party at home so I suggested using the formal dining room of our country club and it was perfect for this tea party.

Each girl was greeted by Gabby and invited to decorate their tea hat
Then of course, they had an opportunity to play dress up and have their photo taken
The girls dined on tea sandwiches, fresh fruit, tea cookies, hot chocolate & pink lemonade
Sparkling cider
tea bag sugar cookie dipped in chocolate 
tea hat birthday cake
The girls played a game of was quite entertaining to say the least
With poise and grace, Gabby toasted to her friends and thanked them for coming to her tea party.
each guest left with their own tea cup and saucer (demitasse cup) filled with a mini cupcake
and their decorated tea hats!
Thank you to the Goodfriend family for allowing me to plan this special event!
Happy 8th Birthday Gabby!
