Sweet Colette celebrated her 2nd birthday in style this year with a tea party for her wee friends. The venue was the NY Kids Club located in Gramercy Park. The tunes were bumping, the kids were jumping and little miss party transformed the room where the guests would eat into a little girl’s tea party.
When the guests arrived they were directed to remove their shoes and join the kids in the gym for organized play time and songs OR…enjoy some coffee and/or tea that we set out alongside some tea biscuits, purple french anemones and some personalized coffee cups. How cute?!
With shades of purple, silver, grey and white we had a lot of fun with the theme and color scheme. As always we used some of those awesome 3 foot balloons which we found in purple color from Shop Sweet Lulu along with some other goodies that they had on their site and looked great on our tables: purple rectangle plates & napkins (love these!!), plastic milk bottles (brilliant for kids) with purple and white striped straws and best of all…we discovered the most incredible tea party forks and spoons…that happened to be REAL silverware. Stunning!
We used tin cans and white tea pots as vases…which looked so fab.
And the food was perfectly fitting to our theme. We served tea sandwiches: PB&J’s cut with scalloped cookie cutters, egg salad on white and wheat challah and chicken salad on pretzel croissants.
Inspired by a baby shower we did awhile back we decided to add a couple of grey colored succulents to the platters of food…They fit into the color scheme and looked really pretty.
Other brunch type foods that we were inspired by tea to serve were mini bagels with butter and cream cheese, mini cinnabons, chocolate glazed munchkin donuts and a fruit salad made with deep colors such as blueberries and cut grapes.
And as always we had Ali design cupcake toppers, water bottle labels and food place cards to make all the details extra special for Colette’s fun day.
The cupcakes and beautiful cake came from our friend Deb at Sugar Sweet Sunshine. The cake turned out looking gorge and we made an adorable bunting out of Colette’s name to go on the top.
Aside from the cute tea party that we had going on at this party…the kids had a great time and were all entertained!
Darling Colette – Happy Birthday! We wish you many more special days to come.
