I have always loved anything heirloom or vintage! Combine it with a tea party and I am in heaven. For many years, I have collected magazine clippings that inspire me. Here is one from Victoria magazine, 2000. So perfect for spring!!
It is a southern belle birthday party complete with heirloom dresses, parasols, ribbons. lace and daisies. Be still my southern heritage heart!!!!
Every little girl is dressed in her heirloom dress and given a flower halo and a battenburg parasol!
The patio chairs are gussied up with tulle and ribbons!
Royal Dalton Brambly Hedge plates are used for sandwiches and cake. Cake is made in a domed cake pan and the hat rim edge is the upturned portion of a paper plate. It is then placed on a vintage hat stand.
Bite sized flower shaped sandwiches are served.
A Victorian-styled carriage is the perfect place to receive the birthday presents.
Party favors are little limoge boxes filled with a miniature ceramic birthday cake.
One day, I would love to open a children's shop that has everything from heirloom dresses, party dresses, party favors etc. along with a children's design studio plus a tea shop next door! Designing for children is so fun since I can let my whimsical imagination run free!
Au Revoir for now!
