It gives me so much pleasure to share with you these images from my daughter's recent 7th birthday. Thank you to Amy Atlas for sharing this party with you all.
This year Olivia asked if she could have a tea party to celebrate her birthday. After much discussion it was decided we would host a Mary Poppins Jolly Holiday Tea Party with a group of her closest friends.
I have a few thank you's I would like to make before I show you the photos.
To Loralee Lewis for designing the most beautiful paperie including invitations, banners, drink bottle labels, thank you tags, straw flags and cupcake toppers I've ever seen. Loralee's work is original, darling and beautifully presented. Thank you Loralee for everything - it was practically perfect!
To Jodie Randolph-Birch for arranging the beautiful blooms and her help on the day.
To Michelle Winson my wonderful neighbour who sewed the tablecloths and chair sashes.
I have to say this is the most enjoyable party I've ever hosted. The children AND adults had an absolute ball. The little ones were transported into another time and place, they didn't stop smiling all afternoon. It is very very satisfying when you receive text messages from the guests thanking you for inviting them to the best party they have ever been to.
I popped open a bottle of bubbles just as everyone arrived, downed a glass and jumped straight on the tea cup ride!
Penguins were kindly borrowed from Addie & Me. Thank you Shelby & Caroline.

Kite making kits were purchased from Kite Magic. The kids absolutely loved them and they fly really well. This is a great activity that gets the kids moving and is not too expensive either.
Cake made lovingly by me! The flavour was neapolitan.
