Preppy Spring Par-Tea

A Modern Spring Par-Tea!

Could it be Spring?
The buds are blossoming … flowers are poppin’ and the birds are a chirpin’.  
It is Spring! 
What better way to celebrate this magnificent time of year than to throw a sweet little Par-Tea…Preppy style of course!
I wanted the color palette to just scream SPRING!  Bright pinks, pops of orange, various shades of greens, gorgeous accents of gold and rose gold with a splash of navy for that fun “preppy” vibe!

The grass backdrop is probably one of my favorite elements of this party.  It brought the Springtime right inside. It was fairly easy to create by simply wrapping a piece of faux turf carpet around a plain canvas and adding an amazing tissue tassel garland representing all the colors of spring!

Flowers and Springtime go hand in hand, so of course, the more the merrier.  Instead of the typical vase, I instead chose to display the flowers in a gorgeous rose gold vintage tiered dessert stand from Amalfi Decor. 

The beautiful Spring blooms spilling over the sides made for a perfect Spring centerpiece.  

The table was set with a mix of class, whimsy and fun. Each setting had an adorable flower plate placed a-top a grass mat and a delicate tea cup sat to the right with the sweetest little place card in the shape of a tea bag tucked neatly inside.

Down the center of the table ran a brightly patterned pink and orange table runner sprinkled with sweets and treats, yummy little tea sandwiches and of course, no party is complete without a darling little favor for your guests to take home!

Bar carts are an absolute must for a party.  They not only look fabulous, but they hold all yours drinks and extras, essential for party success. This one was filled with delicious fruity mocktails and darling pink vanilla cupcakes displayed in delicate striped and floral liners and topped with the cutest little flower toppers.

I, of course, always do love to encourage the guests to coordinate with the party theme, because who doesn’t love adorable little frocks patterned with preppy stripes and flowers!

I hope you were inspired to throw your own impromptu par-tea just for the SPRING of it!
Enjoy a few more sweet pics!

A Sugar Plum Soiree

    I absolutely LOVE the holidays and all the wonderfully magical things that come along with it.  I have always adored the story of the Nutcracker and knew that styling a party around this theme was a must do, so when my daughter fell in love this past year with a book called Tallulah’s Nutcracker, I knew this would be the perfect theme for her 6th birthday party!

Mingle & Jingle Christmas Card Addressing Luncheon

Is it just me, or are you always frantically addressing your Christmas cards a couple days before Christmas along with the million other things you still need to get done?  This year I decided to take a little stress out of the Holiday season and invite some girlfriends over for a Mingle & Jingle Christmas Card Addressing Party!  A Ladie's Luncheon seemed perfect!  It could even take place during a weekday while all the kiddos are in school.  You can address your Christmas cards, laugh and chat, all while eating  yummy food and treats!  Sounds like a win, win for all!!
