Mommy & Me Tea Party (41 photos)
Since my little one just turned 2, I thought it would be a great opportunity to set up a tea table and other sweet stations under the trees while enjoying some quality mommy and me time over a nice cup of tea.
I used a variety of cake stands, teacups, teapots, dessert plates, milk glass vases and compotes, from my Minted and Vintage collection of rentals to display the yummy desserts. The desserts were provided by a great group of talented ladies all based in Los Angeles and Orange County, CA.
Everything was kept child sized to make it easy for my 2 year old to enjoy. From the child sized teacups and white chiavari chairs, to the mini cakes and cupcakes, and cake pops she had a blast having everything at her reach and just her size.
We served pink tea with colored sugar hearts and old-fashioned rock candy sticks. The tea table, vintage tea cart, and wooden dollhouse, displayed a variety of buttercream iced mini cakes, individual rose cakes, mini pink cheesecakes and cupcakes topped with raspberries, coconut and chocolate brigadeiros, cake pops, chocolate dipped french macarons, heart shaped petit fours, meringues, and marshmallows.
For the heart shaped petit fours (bottom tier) I used a pound cake bites recipe, from Amy Atlas’ Sweet Designs book, but instead of doing them cube shaped I used a small heart shaped cookie cutter, and decorated with sugar pearls and hearts, I just loved how they came out and they were super simple to make!
This mommy and me tea party under the trees was such a sweet memory! I think it’s a great alternative for subsequent birthdays after having a big 1st birthday celebration as it allowed me to spend quality time with my girl (and her favorite dolls) and give her all of my undivided attention.
