Picture of Easy & Inexpensive Little Girl Birthday: Tea Party

What little girl [or big girls too really] doesn't love a Tea Party?!

Well, that's exactly what my daughter and her best friend, born a week apart, wanted for their 6th birthday party. Truthfully it's easy to go a bit over the top for little kids' themed birthday parties these days. But I'm of the mind set to "Work Smart Not Hard", but make it look incredible at the same time of course. So this time my goal was to keep it simple, yet little girl sophisticated!

Budget is also a contributing factor. Besides the cost of the food, which you can make as easy or extravagant as you want, the overall cost of this party was very inexpensive. Actually, I bought all the decor items at my fave $1 Store! It did help however, that my daughter Teagan is my Dad's little "Tea cup", so he had already started quite the tea cup collection for her. But you don't have to look very hard to find some beautifully decorated tea cups, trays, plates, and more at vintage stores and places like Salvation Army. So have fun with it and mix it up!

Welcome to our Tea Party.... enjoy Darling!

I like how you hung the tea cups from that cool chandelier. And the DIY tea cups was great idea.
