Adorable Pink Dollhouse Tea Party!

Thrilled to have my talented friend Tonya visiting today to share her darling pink dollhouse tea party full of sweet details (like black and white stripes – my fave!).

Tonya Coleman from Soiree Event Design here, and today I’m putting my own spin on the traditional tea party today with my Dollhouse  Tea Party theme! Tea parties have been around for a long time. To put a modern spin on it, I invited my daughter’s friends to bring their favorite dolls to the party and have the girls and their dolls dress up in matching outfits for tea! My daughter loves to dress up, so this party was centered around fashion, complete with a dress up bar, fashion-inspired dessert table and photo shoot. They LOVED it!

The inspiration for the entire party design were the fabulous outfits by Ann Loren that had an eclectic mix of patterns–polka dots, stripes, flowers and damask. Using my own exclusive “Dollhouse” printable collection (now available in my shop), I wanted to create an upscale and girly dollhouse environment for the girls. Mixing a damask tablecloth with this gorgeous tulle table skirt was the perfect base and when paired with this vintage pink and white striped vinyl backdrop, I had the look I was going for. Adding in girly details was the fun part. The centerpiece was a doll-sized cradle with a crystal chandelier mobile flanked with these gorgeous fabric topiaries.

The desserts had to be just as girly and petite so I called on Fancy Cakes to custom design four mini cakes for each guest inspired by the four outfits that each girl would be wearing at the party. She nailed it! The girls were so excited to see these gorgeous cakes! The table also featured custom designed desserts to match the outfits from custom iced cookies in the shape of little dresses to the gourmet apples and fondant topped chocolate covered oreos and cake pops. Rounding out the table full of goodies were custom labeled cotton candy bags that the girls each took home as a party favor.

As the girls arrived they were each given a custom outfit to wear for themselves and a matching one for their 18″ doll. Once they were dressed they visited the Dress Up Bar to accessorize with these super cute chunky necklaces and matching bracelets. The girls all took home tulle wands and a white hat perfect for a tea party. Once they were all dolled up, they posed for their very own Dollhouse Photo Shoot!

Once the photos were all taken, the girls took their dolls to the gorgeous tea party table and sat down with their dolls to enjoy lunch of petite sized sandwiches and pink lemonade. Next was tea (hot chocolate)! The girls loved being able to have their dolls sitting right next to them at the table with these clip on doll chairs. They also loved all the “fancy” sparkly elements of the table like the crystal chargers with striped paper plates topped with clear plates with our Dollhouse printable plate inlay placed in between that I personalized with each guest’s first initial. The girls really loved finding their seats by finding their own special plates!
