I Love it when I have a chance to throw together a cute little party.
Well, as long as its not pokemon themed or something of the sort.
Imagine my relief when my oldest daughter simply asked for a Tea Party.
Whew. I can get on board with that.
So I put together this little Gold Polka Dot Tea Party and we had a fun dinner that evening with soup, salad, Panini’s, scones, caramel apples, and birthday cake.
Oh, and apple cider “tea”.
Did I mention I decorated this party on $12?
I totally did.
I was able to use a lot of what I had on hand and luckily my parents had cute white dishes and tablecloths for me to borrow.
I made the burlap table runner this last year and it sure came in handy.
I made this banner out of some canvas that I had on hand, along with a little twine, gold paint, and stencils which I also had laying around.
These gold polka dot burlap silverware sleeves were made with nothing more than a glue gun. I was going to sew them but I decided to sleep instead. Maybe next time I make a silverware sleeve I’ll be a little more thorough.
These centerpieces are simply pie pumpkins painted white. I used a gold sharpie and drew on the polka dots, then hollowed out the pumpkin. I made the tissue paper flowers following this tutorial(so easy and cheap!) and then filled the pumpkin vases full of them.
Three of these pumpkin vases only cost around $4 to make!
I made Caramel Apples with draped chocolate and golden pearls.
Sometimes I think I would rather just stare at the apples instead of eating them. What is it about caramel apples?!
My daughters only request? Blueberry Scones. Click here to get my recipe!
A must have at any tea party.
Last but not least, the birthday cake.
White rosettes with gold rosette polka dots.
Anyone sick of golden dots yet?
