About This Space

I had a tea party for six little girls. Ages eight to six. I wanted it in our garden so that they could be Butterflies! I wanted the lush garden plants along with the sunflowers, to give it a Wonderland appeal! I had to lower my table into the ground to be a better height for them. Then I placed rugs down around the table to help make it cozy. I found the large red flowers in a thrift store that added to my inspiration! My Daughter brought over her tulip plant and her Balcony flowers that we placed around the edges to help it feel like they were in the garden.As well as adding color in this spot. Keeping the Butterfly theme in mind, I painted some bright flowers on a board and hand made pretty colorful butterflies so we could play "pin the butterfly on the Flower"! This was placed on an old white door, at a height all the girls would be able to reach. The painted flowers also added a spot of color on my back wall.This back wall is the end of our very old carport. It has never been finished. It just had misc. boards nailed up. So for the party I decided to make lemonade out of my lemons by painting those boards lovely shades of tans and greens and purples! Then we hung up an old nine pane window and other out door items to finish the wall. For added detail around the Tea table,we hung blue lights up with colorful wind catchers to spin and catch the light.I am a fan of the primary colors so I found some lovely blue and pretty red satin fabric that i used as the table cloth. ( No finished edges i just threw it on there) Then to pull it all together I place a Teapot themed runner down the middle. I had collected a child's china tea set in the Moss Rose design. I used it along with another rose tea pot for the girls. The Large red flower in the middle of the table set it off! I then sprinkled pink glitter over the table. At each place at the table, we placed a colorful mask, and hand made antenna's ( I made). Then on the back of the chairs each girl received a handmade tutu ( My Daughter made) as well as the colorful butterfly wings! I did not want all the same color of wings, because this was not formal event and there are different colored butterflies in a garden! I also had the Mom's come along with a grandma or two. So naturally I had to have a table for them as well!I It was off to the side, and blended with the butterfly theme. I think it turned out Gorgeous! The day was Beautiful as well as Magical!
