    What girl growing up didn't pretend to have a "Tea" party? I know I did. I would get all of my stuffed animals and dolls set up at the table. Then I’d set out all of my grandma's tea cups and saucers—although I never really understood why we had to have a mini plate to hold our cups. I pretend to have "tea time" like the Queen of England would do. I would even stick my pinky out and everything.

    Recently I was called to be an activities day leader with someone who instantly became a dear friend. We planned out the rest of this year with so many fun activities that, won’t only be fun, but will also help our young women pass off their Faith in God award.

    One of the activities we planned was a "Tea" party. So, we partnered up with Expo Party Rentals and transformed the nursery room. We draped the walls with beautiful draping and some pink accent lights to bring more warmth and color to the room. Nobody could have known under the beautiful decorations there was a church’s nursery room.


    We decorated the tables beautifully with lilac table clothes and a lace overlay. What tea party doesn't have lace? We set the tables with a formal table setting using Expo's double rimmed gold china and flatware and water goblets for a modern twist.  Of course we had to have some kind of pink in there somewhere, so we tied pink in with the napkins and the chair sashes.


    Flower, oh the flowers! We got to try out the new florist at expo. She did amazing putting together different vintage glass bottle pieces. Her arrangements added just the right amount of classic to a modern tea party. They were just beautiful.

    Now, one can not have a tea party with out good food. We had beautiful cake pops, chocolate covered oreos, a cherry salad, tea sandwiches, and of course strawberries.


    We had a lot of fun designing our event, learning about etiquette with the girls, and put together cute hats. But my favorite memory from our event was seeing the reaction of the girls when we finally let them come into the room to see the amazing set up we had put together for them. They could tell their leaders truly cared for them and wanted to make sure they had a great time.

  • DIY: Frozen Themed Birthday Party

    Guest Blogger and Expo Customertitlepicture
    When my daughter told me she wanted a Frozen themed birthday party, I wasn't the least bit surprised.  Lucky for me, she wanted to dress up as Anna rather than the ice princess herself.  This allowed for  a little more richness in the over all color palette.

    I started off with party plates my daughter picked out. Expo Rentals had these beautiful teal tablecloths which matched perfectly.

    I don't know about you, but I don't have 22 kid chairs laying around my house for all these little guests. So we rented 3 kid sized tables and 22 kid sized chairs from Expo Rentals as well. They are sooo cute! I even decorated the birthday girls chair with a little tulle and a small banner. She loved her special seat!

    My friend let me have the centerpieces from her daughters party. I didn't want to copy her exactly though, so I added the tulle "bows" to the branches. I thought they were perfect for a wintery feel.


    Art is a huge part of our family so I thought framing my daughters painting would be a nice contribution to the party decor. This allows us to have a more personalized and unique touch making the party truly about her.

    I also had fun using vintage dishes for serving the food. Old milk glass bowls were perfect for grapes and vintage plates for cookies and cheese. Might as well put those pretty things tucked away in the china cabinet to good use.


    I used a store box cookie mix to make these little snowflake cookies. Baking isn't by any means my specialty so these little sweets came very close to being a Pinterest fail.No joke, I had to use the smaller cookie cutters because the bigger snowflake cookie shapes kept falling apart. Also, you'll see my decorating of them was SUPER simple. Just three lines were pipped onto each cookie and little candies were stuck onto them before the frosting dried. I used a basic royal icing recipe which includes powdered egg whites and I let them dry over night. They held up perfectly and tasted great!


    There is always at least a couple gluten intolerant guest at every party, so the chocolate cupcakes are gluten free ( from a box mix as well). For those of us who eat wheat I had powdered donuts as well simply because they fit the snow theme and look so cute piled up on a plate.


    The kids all got a bottle of apple juice. I simply covered the label with teal paper and stuck on a card stock snowflake made with a paper punch. Paper straws are always so darling and tying them on with a ribbon is practical and pretty.The birthday cake was from a box mix as well (shocker!) and I frosted it with a traditional vanilla butter cream recipe. Freezing the cake first is a MUST for easy decorating. After freezing it overnight, I always apply a light coat frosting first as a crumb coat, stick it in the fridge for 20 min, then finish decorating it. I used a simple star tip for the piped decoration and aqua candies as a extra special touch. No bakery wizardry here. Keep it simple! foodtable

    We also had cheese, crackers, chips, and pizza (not pictured). Our family is very busy running two small businesses so you won't find me slaving over the stove cooking an elaborate lunch or dinner for 50 guests. I go crazy enough as it is crafting the little things I do find time to make.

    The kids had fun and my daughter loved her party. I considered it a success!

    Happy Happy Birthday my sweet girl!

    And thanks again to Expo Rentals for beautiful rentals and superb customer service!


    Just for fun, here are a couple of our darling guests. Seriously, that troll costume was genius and my own little toddler always melts my heart!

  • Child’s Birthday: Alice in Wonderland (Part 3)

    Alicia Nelson, Guest Blogger & Customer


    I love pretty linens and china. I've been lucky enough to inherit some of my grandmother’s tea cup collection and I pick up bits and pieces at yard sales when I get the chance. However, I don't have enough of everything for a large party like this one. Besides, we had a large range in ages attend our Wonderland party.

    Therefore, the kid tables and the adult tables were slightly different. I wanted a Mad Hatter tea party going on with the adults using my vintage tea cups. It didn't seem wise to have the munchkins around some of my grandma's tea cup collection, so they ended up with Drink Me labels on apple juice bottles. I'm sure they would rather have apple juice than tea anyway. Everyone had the double gold band salad plates and Parisian flatware. I think my tea cup collection looks perfect with the rental china. The touch of gold really ties everything together.



    Both tables had a baby blue cloth with a white runner. How cute are the covers and bows on the kid chairs? They almost look like little dresses! So sweet!


  • Child’s Birthday: Alice in Wonderland (Part 2)

    By: Alicia Nelson, Guest Blogger & Customer


    Kid parties are the perfect time to go crazy with craft projects. Since we have a photography business, we have a large collection of baby portraits to display. I picked up these hinged picture frames from the dollar store and enlisted my older kids to help paint and glitter them. I wanted the back side of the frames to be cute as well so I covered the backs with scrapbook paper and amusing Alice In Wonderland quotes. The first time I read the book I was about 9 years old. Reading it as an adult was a whole new experience. Strangely enough, I can relate to most of the quotes. Yes, at times I feel as though I have fallen down a rabbit hole and we are all mad here!



    Our favors were small bags with round chocolate mint patties inside. My goodness I love those candies! We placed little clocks on them with the time of our daughter’s birth. Credit to that little detail must go to my oldest daughter. She's one smart cookie! To finish them off, I printed up little labels to staple to the top of the bags. They turned out cute and sweet and I was more than happy to take home the leftovers.


  • Child’s Birthday: Alice in Wonderland (Part 1)

    By Alicia Nelson, Guest Blogger & Customer


    If we are truly honest with ourselves, a baby's first birthday party is really for the parents. And if we are really, really honest, it is for the mom. I don't have a problem with that. Why not allow mom to celebrate the hard labor and sleepless nights of the first year?   Naturally, my daughter didn't have a preference on the theme of her first birthday. So I took full advantage of her apathy and designed an Alice in Wonderland party for us.

    Her birthday is in March and the weather can be pretty sketchy here in Fresno at this time so we rented a gorgeous clear top tent. I'm so glad I played it safe! The party day was sandwiched between days of showers! Since the tent was set up the morning before, the lawn was kept pretty dry preventing a muddy mess during the party.  I love that the clear top let all the light in and you could see fluffy white clouds in our sparkling blue sky.


    I scoured Pinterest for inexpensive decorating ideas. We all know tissue paper is crazy cheap at the dollar store, so tissue paper flowers was a no brainer. You can easily find tutorials on Pinterest for different kinds of flowers. I managed to get about 5 flowers in my color theme from each bundle of paper. They might be easy to make, but it is time consuming. One of the best parts is I pre-folded them then placed them in a bag until the day of the party. I didn't unfold the petals until just before the party. With the help of family we were able to fluff up the petals and hang them up in clusters of three inside the tent. How pretty are they against the sky?

    Another dollar store decorating idea was the playing card garland. It's really simple and stuck to our theme. But why have just one style garland when you can have two? Bless my hubby as he blew up tons of  balloons and strung them up as well. Balloons lend such a sweet, festive look and can really support the color theme you have chosen.

    Stay tuned... my next post will be about a couple craft projects I did for this party as well. In the meantime, here are some gorgeous HDR photographs my husband did of the tent along with detail shots we both took.

    I hope you are inspired!
