My Daughter's Birthday Party Pictures : )

Hello!  I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!  We had my daughter's fifth birthday party yesterday, and the theme was tea party : )  I thought I would show you a few pics!  I originally planned for it to be a garden tea party, however, we decided to move it inside at the last minute because it is SO HOT here still!  It's still 90 degrees plus and the heat is killing me!  Fortunately we are going on vacation in a week to Tennessee and I am looking forward to the cool mountain temps!  This first picture is a picture of the kids' place setting.  I made them each these darling Pretty Petal Pocket bags and filled them with Jelly Bellys.  I also made the place cards for everyone.  I used very inexpensive glassware so if it broke it wouldn't matter : )

The adult place settings were slightly different with nicer plates and goblets : )  I also made little boxes for them and filled them with flavored tea bags. 

Here you can kind of see the set up.  I also decorated hats for the girls and gave them each a teddy bear with a matching bow around the neck : )  This is Avery running around the table with her hat and bear.  She was very excited for her party to start LOL!

While we were waiting for everyone to arrive the girls beaded necklaces.  I also got paper puppet kits for the boys.

After we ate, the kids played a few games outside and inside : )   They played Musical Chairs, Hot Teapot (instead of Hot Potato) Tea Bag Toss, and Sugar Cube Relay. 

After games we had cake and Avery opened her presents.  Everyone had a lot of fun!

Thank you for stopping by!  I will have more card creations for you tomorrow : )
