The Princess Dreams…
And Mommy makes them come true! Before I knew it the ripe age of FOUR closed in on me pretty quickly, and without further adieu my daughter dictated the theme before I could blink my eyes. Of course it had to be no other than an Aurora Sleeping beauty tea party. The problem: the boys. How was I going to incorporate this event where it could work for both genders? With some deliberation I figured out that I would make it so our list of boys that would be invited will decide if they will be a Prince or a Knight for the day. Problem solved.
Many fun games like Royal ball and Knight bubbles would keep our little knights and both Prince’s entertained as the girls got dolled up at the Beauty Bar with nothing else but the royal makeup from our latest Disney Trip at the Bippity boppity boo Salon. Each little princess sparkled with jewelry and light up rings and wands that was given. Gems for the face , Tierra’s, Crowns for the Prince and Knight Masks were more of the fun accessories for the day for these little cuties.
Surprisingly enough the boys even got into pouring the tea and adding fruit into the cups and china plates…
Only Secretly Mommy took a heart attack every time I watched the passing of the tea take place, not because the tea was hot. (No – I am not that stupid, it was all different flavors of organic chamomile iced tea) it was because I bought vintage teacups. My original thought was to buy all mismatched cups I would not care about, but than the control person that I am couldn’t have mismatched colors since my daughter insisted on “MAKE IT PINK”!
So the purchase of the Vintage china tea set happened at a local tag sale.
The set I got lucky to stumble across had lovely dark pink roses and gold trim. It seemed so fitting since Sleeping Beauty’s nick name is ‘Rose’ – mixed and matched also with a light pink and gold demitasse set that I was so lucky to acquire from a beautiful bridal shower I attended some years ago. Accented with a pretty pink runner with a rose print and cushions to match was a last minute touch in the fabric store’s scrap isle.
I thoroughly enjoyed putting this princess tea party together . It really was a perfect fit for our little sleeping beauty and nothing was more gratifying watching the reaction of our Birthday Princess upon arrival along with all of her friends as they took in all the details of this Enchanted Princess Tea Party. The mini table that my Husband and Father put together the night before was a perfect fit to sit and sip tea on the rose DIY cushions.
