Start with a jaw-dropping, gorgeous garden, add precious girls, adorable activities, and yummy treats, and you have a most-wonderful Garden Tea Party for two darling little Birthday Girls!

GARDEN TEA PARTY

Moms Michelle and Lisa hosted this lovely Tea Party in the Garden and made it an exquisite day with the sweetest southern style!  The party was held in the garden of the grandparents of one of the birthday girls.  It was a stunning setting on its own, but add all of the children and the lovely details and the garden grew more beautiful, if even possible!  As the children arrived, the hostesses met them wearing beautiful hats for the party!

The tea party table was set with teapot cakes at each end of the table, representing the two birthday girls…

Each place setting had a small bouquet of flowers for the guests to take home with them~

Each guest also received a miniature hat box with lace gloves and pearls tucked inside.  The girls wore them as they enjoyed their lemonade and sweets.

The activities were just as sweet as the girls!  I loved how perfectly planned each activity was and how  the girls worked so quietly and enthusiastically! This group photo shows them waiting patiently for each friend to arrive- and then they would run to greet and hug the guest that arrived!

LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE PARTY

What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books!  I must admit, I didn’t realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series.  It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie!  Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way.  At Camille’s request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories… prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books,  and “pretty”…because “Ma” liked things to be pretty!
