Cora’s Princess Tea Party

All Cora wanted for her 4th birthday was a princess tea party.  Originally I planned on having it inside as it is usually unbearably hot in August.  However, we have been having a mild summer so two days before the party I changed all my plans.  I asked Justin’s dad if I could borrow his tent he uses at outdoor art shows.  It didn’t look quite princessy enough.  I found some old mesh Ikea curtains that I had never used.  I cut them in half and tied them to the four corners of the tent.  The night before the party Justin drove to our church and borrowed a bunch of chairs.

A few weeks prior to her party I had ordered two inexpensive tea sets from ebay (highly recommend if you want a pretty tea set for your girl ).  I had gathered bits and pieces of decoration all over the place and somehow it all went together.  I strung Cora’s princess dresses on a line so the little girls could dress up in costume.  I borrowed my cousin Jo’s cupcake recipe and as she promised…they were delicious!

It was a fun little tea party.

My friend Sara was able to take almost all  of these beautiful photos.
