The cutest pink and gold princess tea party!

We are totally living it up in “all things girly” lately! With having my own little girl exactly 2 months ago, I’ve been swimming in all things pink and cute. So when this pink and gold princess tea party graced my inbox, I just knew I had to share it with you. In fact, it might just be a new girl’s party favorite! Don’t fret though, we have lots of cute boy ideas coming soon! This party was styled by Maureen of a la Mo (follow her on Facebook here!) and invitations & party stationery by Phyllis of Phyllis Sa Design! With creative mamas that are friends and birthdays 3 days apart, these girls were bound to celebrate together this year. See how they celebrated in style…and read more party details below!

We are so inspired by all the gorgeous details in this Princess Tea Party! Maureen and Phyllis have included lots of party details below…

“The detailed invitation set the stage for our celebration and introduced the color palette of gold and bright pink with slightly muted rainbow accents. Phyllis created adorable caricatures of each girl as their favorite princess that we used as the focal point on the invitation.  In addition to the main invite, we also created an enclosure with a confetti tea bag attached to it that read, “Get ready to celebrate THREE with confetti tea!”. That little tea bag was one of my favorite details from the party.

A lot of love and gold spray paint went into the rest of the decor crafting. The paper flag buntings, rainbow tulle pom garland, crepe paper chandeliers, gold burlap table runners, and the castle cupcake stand were all handcrafted. An Aunt of one of the girls created the beautiful flower arrangements. Even the food and favor chalkboard labels were hand lettered with care.

Our guest list included many little princes in addition to the princesses, so we didn’t want the activities or favors to be too feminine. As it turns out, little boys love a good tea party! They were just as happy pretending to have tea with the tea sets we had out for the kids as they were playing in the cardboard play castle. Costumes were also rented for the little guests, so we had many princesses, knights, and even a dragon running around.

Lunch was served at a “Pack Your Own Picnic” food table. Guests customized their own picnic boxed lunch with a selection of gourmet sandwiches and salads plus homemade potato chips, fruit, cookies, and other kid-friendly snacks.

Desserts are always my favorite part to plan for. I love to bake and I’m also fortunate to work with some very talented local sugar artists. NatSweets took the princess caricatures from the invitation and replicated them perfectly on cookies. The stunning candy apples and detailed cake pops were fit for a princess (or 2!) and were crafted by Roni’s Sugar Creations. Each birthday girl had her own princess cupcake topped with her likeness. To complete the sweets table I baked mini vanilla bean scones; after all, what’s a tea party without scones? All of the desserts were gorgeous and delicious!

Each little guest went home with a take-and-make craft. The favors were Design Your Own Royal Birdcastle kits that included a wooden castle birdhouse, washable paints, paintbrush, glitter glue, and various gems and embellishments. All of the supplies were wrapped up in a muslin drawstring bag that had been hand-stamped with gold and various colored polka dots. The younger guests that weren’t old enough to paint got to take home a mini princess coloring book and a package of crayons instead.

The girls thoroughly enjoyed their royal princess tea party and it was a great way to kick off being 3!”
