We have had a really wet start to winter, and as a result the kids have been stuck indoors quite a bit.
To brighten up their day, we had a tea party this afternoon, complete with Bohemia Crystal, Fine Bone China, muffins, and Oreos! The girls loved it 🙂

Ok, so this is what it all looked like. I used coloured metal buckets, paper doilies, glass jars, streamers and tissue paper from the local discount stores; a cupcake stand borrowed from my sister; a chrome 2 tier cake stand I got on eBay; and a glass cake stand that belonged to my husbands Nanna.

The cake board is just a standard one that I purchased a few years ago. Every time I use it, I cover it to suit the theme. This time I have used wrapping paper, and clear contact. It is also sitting on an upturned serving bowl.

For fun and games we had a Rainbow Pinata that was hanging in the garage. We were going to hang it up outside, but it rained 😦 We also had a home-made ‘pin the cloud on the rainbow’ that was a hit!

 

 

 

…..and I don’t mean that way-too-skinny-married-to-a-soccer-player-who-sounds-like-a-girl chick either ;-p

I’m talking about High Tea. My High Tea for my 30th in fact. It is sill a while away (early July), but I have been madly pinning a whole heap of ideas as aI come across them, and thought it was about time a shared a few.

Enjoy 🙂

After a recent spate of Rainbow parties popping up on blogs all over the place, I have been prompted to start brainstorming for Miss Soon-to-be-5’s ‘Rainbow High Tea’. Now, there is a story behind her theme, and the short version is that she has wanted a Rainbow party for almost 6 months….well, that was until she saw me researching some ideas for my High Tea 30th, and then she promptly decided she also wanted High Tea. So, I combined the themes for her. I plan to make Rainbow themed invitations, labels, and cupcake wrappers & toppers in Photoshop; bake a rainbow layer cake; provide a variety of rainbow food; have a selection of hot foods for lunch; and add even more colour with balloons, bunting and serviettes etc.

Anyway, as I always do when I want to browse for idea and inspiration, I turned to Pinterest and came up with these beauties. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do 😀
