Part of the party includes stuffing of puppies. I have pink and white poodles and couture outfits for the girl guests and
yellow and black Labs and tuxedos for the boys.
My niece Katherine, Heather Mills and Myself
( I look related to Heather. Must be my English blood!)
Edyta is so, so sweet! And tan!
I look like I just crawled out from under a rock.
That I was under for a VERY long time :)
The centerpiece also has a moss and fern covered branch running through the center of the table dotted with pink hydrangeas. The table also has a healthy dose of glitter sprinkled all over it!
I love the porcelain fairies scattered about the table. There are also giant pink polka dotted mushrooms sprouting up under the tree.
The pink petaled placemats hold Mary Cicely Barker plates. I spray painted the willow napkin rings green and then glued on hydrangea petals on it along with a sprinkling of glitter.
The girls get to dress up in flower-petalled tulle skirts, pink fairy wings and flower garland head bands. The little fairies go on a scavenger hunt and pop bubbles with their butterfly wands. They hear a fairy story and make candy necklaces. It is such a magical party!

I bought the vintage reproduction postcards on ebay. I trimmed the bottom of the card off so I would have more room on the front of the card. Next, I added Stickles in Gold to the edges of the postcard. I smeared it around with a toothpick. I really wish I had it in black. But it was backordered for several weeks.
This is the inside of the card using the same font and same distressing technique. Then I glued a bias tape strip to the bottom of the card and made a seperate bow to glue on top.
This is a close-up of the front of the card. I also used a velvet brad at the top of the stamp.
This is the back of the envelope. I bought vintage "witch" stickers to seal the envelope and then tied with more bias tape. I used the same font to address the envelopes and I also distressed them with the ink. I hand delivered them, but unfortunately, I have very busy frineds and none of them were home :( Hope you like the invites, now to get ready for the actual tea party!
***I just received this wonderful email from one of my invitees...I just wanted to share!
