Katelyn's 5th Birthday!
Katelyn asked for a birthday party with her friends this year. We discussed a few themes, then decided a Birthday Tea Party would be fabulous.
I began by making pink and purple tea cup invitations

Cards and tulle
I made place cards and necklaces for each of the girls.
Katelyn received a bead making set at a family white elephant party in December, and she was eager to make some thing. She enjoyed stringing beads with me to make necklaces for her friends. The girls were excited to sit down and see their necklaces, so they are all wearing them.
I went to a few thrift stores and found almost a complete tea set. I substituted the missing pieces with other items I found, and picked out unique mis-matching silverware pieces.
and put marshmallows in the sugar bowl
Then, I cut the two pieces into fourths,
wrapped the tulle around the chairs, and tied bows on the backs
Some of the girls wore Katelyn's dress-up clothes for the luncheon
