Vintage Tea Party

By Partycraftsecrets @partycraftsecrt
Vintage Tea Party It's no secret that "vintage" is oh so "today".  I recently went to a lovely little vintage tea party for a friend who was turning 4.  Little Lotti loved getting dressed up in "something beautiful" as instructed and I was rather impressed by how gloriously decked out the house was!
It's always a pleasure to go to a  party that has been themed and crafted to the extent that I do for my own parties.  There was plenty of hand made edibles and decorations, mixed in with brand new, hired and borrowed elements all combined in just the right way.
The color scheme was my favorite "neopolitan ice-cream" scheme; all strawberry, vanilla and chocolate (ie pastel pink, cream and the palest brown).
The textures were lacey; with paper doilies, plastic lace table cloths, and paper cupcake liner crafts.
Her beautiful combination would look great for a ballerina or princess party, as well as a girl's baby shower.
Top tips from the crafty mum:
  • Start weeks in advance so there's no rush.
  • Make one small project at a time with the kids as part of their weekly craft-time.
  • Stick to your theme-scheme when buying / making things (in this case lace / pink-cream).
  • Borrow items from other mums so you minimise expenses.
  • Have fun!

Well done to her for a beautiful party - and good luck to all of you out there getting ready for your next do!
