Incase you haven’t noticed, it’s my birthday week so we’re celebrating all week long on the blog!
today we’re taking a look back at one of my favorite birthday celebrations of all time… my mad hatter tea party brought to you as part of my party planning segment: hopeless hostess!
we were in no short supply of sweet treats the party, i whipped up a pound (or pick one up from the store), frosted some cupcake (or substitute mini brownies) and surprised guests with mini fruit pizzas (Sugar cookies, frosting & fruit). Finger sandwiches are a tea party must! Try crustless cucumber & fancy cheese spread (or mix whipping creme with italian dressing), their fun & filling!
Sweeten the deal with candy that doubles as decor! Try dropping fresh fruit in the water for refreshing citrus drinks that tastes as good as it looks.
What’s a party without games? The hopeless hostess plays bingo with buttons, charades and the plate game for her most peculiar tea party.
My party was a blast, but the finishing touches were my fabulous & fashionable friends who always dress the party-part! They showed up in theme with character costumes or over-the-top, yet absolutely necessary, tea attire.
Oh, and since this was my 21st birthday, candles and cupcakes were a must! not just for the birthday girl and hostess herself, but also for all of the guest’s celebrating their un-birthdays. Make a wish…
I hope you enjoyed looking back at one of my favorite birthday celebrations!
