Cupcake Tea Party


The Cupcake Tea Party was a huge success and Miss K had a great birthday.

*warning, this post is picture heavy*

Decorations...

I love bargain stores... $2.50 for a pack of two for these balls to hang from the light fitting - yeah dont look closely that light fitting is filthy!
ruffled streamers... made by moi using this tutorial here

And what is a party without bunting?  I only made a small one for this party as I have a suitcase full of bunting from other parties! The cupcake canvas was one that I won in a giveaway from here.

the party table

Place settings... this one is the birthday girl's (we have a plate in our house which is especially for birthdays.. how convenient it had cupcakes on it!)

Each of the girls had a giant rectangle doily for their placemat (good find!) A cupcake with their placecard in it, a glass with sprinkle around the top and a little teacup (on a doily of course!)

An op shop teapot with fresh flowers...

another op shop teapot.. this one with marshmallows dipped in white chocolate and sprinkles.

And the food..
Sundae Cupcakes...
flower cupcakes....

little teacup biscuits... tictoc biscuit, marshmallow on top, freckle on top of those and half a musk lifesaver for the handle... too cute! (secretly Ive always wanted to make these!)

Chocolate dipped strawberries...
And we had watermelon and bowls of cherries to balance out all that SUGAR!!!

Also little teapot shaped ham and cheese sandwiches (of course the birthday girl wanted Vegemite!)
And I was so excited to find this Sparkling Pink Lemonade at Aldi the day before the party.
 They also drank my favourite Apple tea (T2).

Miss K opened her presents and was very spoilt


Then it was cake time...

classic poses

They decorated cupcakes..

and played pass the parcel (which had cupcake themed prizes)


including these necklaces..

The girls got special Party bags without plastic crap and too much sweet stuff! 
which had....cupcake pencil toppers


face washer cupcakes..
and cupcake bathbombs.....(tutorial here)

So it was great fun, I was knackered and then we spent the whole of Sunday at a Netball tournament!!!

You can check out the preparation for this party here and here.

FABULOUS party!!! It all came together so amazingly and Keeley looks like she had a wondeful time. My daughter was just looking over my shoulder... her comment to me was, "Wow, can I have a cupcake birthday too??"

Gorgeous - I am planning a high tea for my 21st and was wondering where you got hold of the paper doilies that you used? Lydia
