We celebrated my daughter's 3rd birthday last week and the theme was "A Garden Tea Party". Her last "big birthday bash" was when she turned one so I thought it might be the right time for another little celebration, something small, sweet and focused on her. We don't do big birthday parties every year (which I've blogged about before, here and here) and even when we do have a party, it's usually a small affair with just a handful of kids. This year, for my daughter, I wanted it to be just her little friends, not siblings of friends, not older kids and not her brother's friends. Just a small few that she sees on a regular basis. There were 5 gorgeous little ones in total - and it was the perfect amount.
They drank "tea" together, from real tea cups, they played together and they crafted together, making themselves a very flash garden tea party hat out of a paper plate and a paper bowl. Such clever little beans. And at the end of the party their little party favour was their very own, super-girly, super-cute, super-special tea cup. It was the perfect morning and a really lovely setting for a little girl's party. Here's a little look at her special day ...
