If you are looking for tea party birthday inspiration, search no further! For Ellie's very first birthday, her parents organised the most beautiful celebration! We had the great honor of making the party dress and could not have been happier to be part of such a stunning event!
Through words and photos of Ellie's birthday, find invitation, outfit, decoration and styling ideas for your next party.
To set the tone, sweet invitations cards decorated with flowers and butterflies were specially designed for the occasion. Each guest also had an hand painted butterfly with its name which served as a place card for the meal.
Based in Olympia Washington, the family rented the Lord Mansion, a nearby historic home, providing an elegant and intimate setting.
Our Charlotte sy Dimby atelier created a custom made dress for Ellie. Made of white satin cotton, the design featured ruffle inserts, a butterfly bow in the back and delicate pink embroideries with an E for Ellie. Paired with pastel pink slippers, an extra tulle lining and a sweet crown, Ellie looked like a little angel.
To create an almost magical opening and give guests the feeling of entering an enchanted garden, the treasure corner created a spectacular butterfly and balloon decor!
Romantic floral arrangements were placed at the centre of each table and fitted marvellously with the floral print tea cups!
The three tier cake with butterflies and balloons was definitely fit for a fairy too! Almost too pretty to cut and eat, it also acted as an element of decor and matched perfectly with the whole theme.
The party treats were equally charming. Sober, chic and colorful, they were so pleasing to the eye!
Last but not least, the family had the splendid idea of creating a photo garland showing Ellie's growth throughout the year with a photo of her each month from her birth to her first birthday! A sweet way to look back and give thanks for the year gone by!
Thank you again for celebrating childhood so sweetly!
