I styled this Vintage Teddy Bear Tea Party for my daughter's 3rd birthday.

I wanted vintage and  romantic, but since this was a 3 year old party, it
needed to have some whimsy.  I envisioned soft palettes of pink, blue,
yellow and cream with lots of lace, ruffles, fabric, doilies, pearls, florals, and
of course, incorporate teddy bear.

I created a dessert table, food table, and children's tablescape for
this event and incorporated many DIY and the little details -- from ruffled backdrop using crepe streamers, Textured Fabric Backdrop mixing various textured and patterned fabric to Fabric and Paper Doily Lanterns.  A pearl necklace sitting in a tea cup, fresh flowers in tea pots and vase, vases wrapped in floral fabric, and party hats trimmed with lace rounded out the little details.


THEME: Vintage Teddy Bear Tea Party

This party was to celebrate my daughter Lila's 3rd birthday.  Playing dress up and
having tea parties are two of Lila's favorite activities so
it was pretty easy to come up with a Teddy Bear Tea Party and hire The Bear Bus,
aka, "Build-A-Bear" on wheels that comes directly to your house!

DECOR ELEMENTS:
I wanted vintage and  romantic, but since this was a 3 year old party, it
needed to have some whimsy.  I envisioned soft palettes of pink, blue,
yellow and cream with lots of lace, ruffles, fabric, doilies, pearls, florals, and
of course, incorporate teddy bear.

PARTY DETAILS - I created a dessert table, food table, and children's tablescape for
this event.

I used a distressed dressert (found for $5 on Craigslist) as my focal point.  To get
a soft, romantic and vintage feel, I created a fabric backdrop mixing in lace,
floral pattern, and chiffon.  I also wanted to incorporate the DIY doily lanterns
and globes I had made.  The plan was to hang them, but due to time constraints, I
ended up scattering on the floor and actually
liked it even better than my original plan!

PARTY FOOD:
I got to work with my favorite sweets designers on this party, Sugar High
for Cake, JP Creatibles for custom-designed cookies, and Edible Details
for cupcake toppers.  Using the printable collection, all 3 designers came
up with their creations.

Menu-- A simple tea party menu was created to include 3 different types of
tea sandwiches, mini quiche, tea cakes and cookies, vanilla meringues,
fresh strawberries and cream, and green salad.

There was a lot of DIY for this party and TONS of littel details.

3)        Paper Doily Lantern using paper doilies and lanterns
4)        Fabric Doily Globes using old fabric doilies, balloon, and fabric

The little details:
