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.
