The décor was glam and girly with tulle tutu and bow tie invitations to set the theme of the party.

Tulle was used for the table décor with gold polka dots for some glam to match the pink and gold polka dot backdrop. I love the fabric and tulle wreath and garland, which adds depth with the multi pinks and golds and makes this such a girly table!

Bite size finger foods such as PB&J crowns and shoes, cucumber flowers, tutu cupcakes, gold sparkle donut holes, flower tea cookies, and strawberry cake were perfect for this tea party themed birthday party..

While most of the décor was girly and glam, we included Charlotte’s friends that were boys by incorporating the bow tie theme. All the guests enjoyed the delicious food, bounce house and teepee!

Party Details

Being an event planner and stylist I am always thinking about all the fun details that go into any event or party. It wouldn’t be tutu party without the perfect tutu! My girl’s always get a special dress or outfit that goes along with the theme of their party and these beautiful pink and gold sequins tutu dresses from OC Kids Closest were perfect. The girls helped me pick out their pink sequins “princess shoes” as they call them, from Cynthia Rowley and their “princess” jeweled necklaces and crowns to complete the tutu tea party outfit!

This Audrey Coral Pink and Gold teepee custom-made for Charlotte by Abigails Hands not only serves as the perfect birthday gift and décor item to update her bedroom but a fun detail and play area for the kids at the party.

Guests enjoyed tea party food made with love by Sarah Sofia Productions! The strawberry cake with fresh flowers made by Sarah Sofia Production was a fan favorite! I love the pink and gold cake topper by Kiss Me Kate Studio, which even through in confetti to decorate around the cake!

Guests were given party favors that included princess wands that light up for the girls and fun sticky hand toy for the boys.

Make sure you come back later this week for Part II with additional photos from Airana Clare from our special tea party outside!

  2. Oh how freaking adorable is this. I have a little boy and I just love him but it’s things like this that make me want a little girl one day. Too cute!

    • Kimberly, many thanks for stopping by and for your kind words! Awe, so fun! You could do a bow tie themed party, which is one of the reasons I wanted to incorporate in this party to include the little boys!
