Party Details by Maggie:
My daughter’s, Gaby, number one wish for her 9th birthday was to have a sophisticated afternoon tea with her friends. I was ecstatic when she told me that she wanted a Tea Party Themed birthday. I must say, that a scrumptious Tea Party was at the top of my wish list growing up. So, what a blessing to be able to make my girl’s wish come true.
My mother’s tropical back yard was the perfect setting for the occasion. Flowers were an integral part of the décor. I juxtaposed different flower patterns in the cupcake stands, cupcake wrappers, table runner and banner to create a vintage feel. Gaby’s gorgeous turquoise bedroom chest became the dessert table which displayed a “croquembouche” (or tower of cream puffs held together with caramel) and mini-desserts like brownie pops, sugar cookies in delicate paper flowers called Petite Blossom Cups, French macarons and of course homemade tea. The little guests wore pretty hats and sat in a long table decorated with teacups and cupcake stands showcasing delicious Cupcakes. I loved how the vanilla mini cupcakes looked in the pink plastic tea cups. All in all, Gaby had a lovely afternoon of fun and sophistication with her friends.
