Tea Party part two

I organized Zoe's party down to the last minute. My house was not big enough to have 7 girls running willy nilly through the halls! When each girl arrived I had her pick out a party hat and "pearl" necklace. I strung the beads together myself with a box of beads I found at Micheal's. I used a 40% off coupon making this a really inexpensive favor for the girls to take home. About $0.80 per girl...or so. I also added a pretty pink satin ribbon to each one. For the party hats I went to the dollar store and bought a package of shiny metallic looking hats and recovered them in the paper I was using for the party. The paper? I bought a pack of scrapbook paper, and once again using a 40% off coupon I got 160 sheets of coordinating paper for around $12. You will be seeing this paper on everything! I also added a crepe paper fringe around the bottom of each girls hat, and for Zoe I added a fancy "6" and pom pom on the top. After the girls had their hat and pearls on I had them sit in front of a giant teacup made of foam board and scrapbook paper and took their picture! I had Steven get the pictures developed within an hour so each girl could take it home at the end of the party! This was his one and only job! The pictures turned out SO great! This was a favorite of the Mom's too ;)


  1. Wow! This is brilliant, Amy. You're an amazing party planner. Your themes are so clever and artistically put together. The giant teacup is too pretty for words.

    Belated Happy 6th Birthday to Miss Zoe!

  2. Seriously, Amy, you could be a party planner/consultant. Fantastic ideas!! LOVE the teacup...that's amazing!
