A 5th Birthday Tea Party for Girls and Their Favorite Dolls
Ava’s Favorite Doll Tea Party
For Ava’s 5th Birthday we decided to incorporate her love of all things girly and that meant princesses, tiaras, loads of flowers and dolls, dolls, dolls!
We held the fete in the beautiful event room at KooKoo Bear Kids in Roswell. The room is decorated with furnishings from the store and is already fit for a princess and her friends. For the decor, we started with a fresh and funky color palette of pink and yellow and used flowers and an image of a little girl with her doll on everything from the invitation to the goody bags. The 4 top round tables were dressed with crisp white linens, napkin rings with empowering slogans such as “be brave”, ”try something new” and “sparkle” and porcelain tea cups and saucers in shades of pastel. To make the party unique, we set a separate table for the dolls and provided some clothes and doll sized boas for the girls to dress them.
The craft table was filled with fun activities including little wooden dolls to color, brightly colored paper flowers to assemble from American Girl Crafts and picture frames to embellish. A special appearance by Princess Aurora thrilled the girls and she delighted them with face painting, magic and dancing as well as a princess etiquette lesson when they sat down to “tea”.
Butterfly tea sandwiches were served along with fruit punch “tea” and hand painted initial cookies by Whimsical Originals for the girls (and their dolls!). Cupcakes topped with paper flowers and a delicious butter cream chocolate cake from Cakes by Darcy rounded out the sweets.
