a modern vintage tea party birthday



It was a tea party as sophisticated as a tea party for toddlers can be.


She is three. Already. What happened? Where did my baby girl go?


We decided to forgo a birthday cake in lieu of petit fours.  


And lots of other goodies.

Of course.



The guests were as sweet as the cake.




Each little girl received an apron made from a hankie with treats in the pocket.



Daddy lit the candle.


Frankie "helped" blow it out.


Yummy gooey cakes! 



Happy Birthday to my sweet girl.

Happy Birthday to your little big girl! The party looks beautiful -- I must admit that I miss the days when my children were little and I did the themed birthdays --

What a great party. I am in the planning stages of a party similar to yours and I am going to have it in my hobby room from http://roomstogrowusa.web12.hubspot.com/hobbyrooom/. It just gets to hot here in the summer to have one outside.

What an adorable party April! I just love the pedestals you made for the petite fours with the upside down cups topped with saucers!
