I have to call it that after all the work it took! What kind of crazy woman spends three hours decorating for a bunch of 6 year olds? That would be me. Good thing M gasped in delight when she first walked into the room. That helped a little. But it had been billed as a "Fancy birthday tea party," so we had to go fancy!
Here the girls are making fancy necklaces:
LOVE dude in this picture. Seriously couldn't look cuter.
It's hard to get good help around here but luckily, these guys were available:
Here's M, all ready to drink from the "fancy cups." I think each girl drank half a gallon of juice. It just tastes better in fancy cups!
And J was the ever-helpful big sister. Willing to pour punch and do whatever else when the hired help couldn't seem to be found :)
Here's the girls with the fancy party hats they made to complete their outfits (we painted nails too - that's why M has her hands out like that )!
And what kind of cake should there be at a tea party but a teapot cake and teacup cupcakes? And as a bonus, the cake had a hidden surprise! It was full of jelly beans. Should have seen M's face when I cut it open! I win! (I'm not really that creative - I'd seen a pinata cake on pPnterest and thought I'd give it a try. Lo and behold after a bit of finnagiling, it worked! And was the perfect shape to make into a teapot! Better yet)
And of course there were presents ...
And total exhaustion afterwards. Happy Birthday beautiful!
