Marianna's Tea Garden Party

Finally, after postponing Marianna's birthday celebration due to the winter storms, this past weekend we celebrated her 3rd birthday with her dream Tea Garden Party.

Thank you to all our friends who joined us and brought great gifts for our little princess. We had a great time. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

We had many activities and fun games like catching the butterflies, looking for Tinkerbell. For Crafts, we colored some butterflies, Tinkerbell and Peter Pan pictures. The girls received pink tutus and to receive the wings they had to swear to be a good fairy and blow some pixie dust. The boys got Peter Pan's hats, tattoos, coins and pirate treats.

And as we promised, we had Tea (raspberry) with the traditional tea sandwiches.

and...I have some pictures to share of my creations for the special day...

The cake and candy bar. I don't have to tell you how fun it was for the little ones to fill their bags with their favorite treats. Marianna said it was the best part of the party!

More pictures of the cupcakes, my daughter loved! (I posted below how I made the butterfly cupcake topper), treats and cake balls everything following the pink palette color.

Chips with spicy salsa

Instead of goodie bags we gave Tinkerbell paint sets for the girls and coloring books for the boys.

The pinata. I have to say that pinatas are not easy to make! but after all the work the flower pinata looked good. It was filled with Tinkerbell candy rings, Tinkerbell and Peter Pan gummies and more goodies.

*Special Thanks to Eunice and Luis for the great pictures!
