Wasn't That A Party!

Apr 25, 2010 +


Chloe's party was great fun last weekend. I think the adults enjoyed all the pretty food and the kids liked the dress up booth. Here's some eye candy for you all (be warned - these pics are sweet sweet sweet!).

The food was fit for our tea party... tea sandwiches, blueberry scones, light-as-air macarons, quiches & salads & wraps, bakerella cake pops, my fave Mariage Freres tea, and of course cupcakes!





Pink & green was the decor theme. I used some Martha Stewart paper (and
Chloe's silhouette) to make cupcake toppers, some no-sew flag bunting, and a birthday sign. I also took some of those vintage doilies from Mama HandyMan and dyed them pink.
 
 




And what's a party without fun for the kiddies? They had their own little buffet complete with mini treats and a mini tea cups! They played games like Pin The Lid On The Teapot and had fun with the dress-up booth (everyone wanted to sit on
the little throne).


And when all was said and done, we were left with full tummies, happy parents, and one tired little girl. Happy 1st Birthday Chloe!

    Amazing! I have my little girls birthday coming up and I would love to know where you got that cupcake stand from? I am making a ton of cupcakes for her party (pink and yellow-her favorite) and need something to display them on and yours is not only perfect but beautiful!

  16. Glad you all liked the pics :) Don't know if I could plan parties for a living... they're so much work, lol!

    emma - welcome! Always nice to find another Toronto blogger.

    anon - I borrowed the cupcake stand from a friend and she got it as a gift so we're not sure where its from. I'm not sure where you're located, but I did see a nice stand (3 round pieces of cardboard wrapped in silver wrapping paper) at Creative Bag near Allen Rd & Sheppard here in Toronto.

  24. Chatty Cathy - We got the tea sandwiches, scones, and tarts from Whole Foods market and the cupcakes from the The Wedding Cake Shoppe. Everything else was home made.
