How to throw a tea party birthday

This post contains affiliate links to throw the perfect birthday tea party. That means I receive a tiny portion of any sales made at no cost to you!

My daughters birthdays are only 4 days apart, and this year started their combined birthday party tradition! Per Ginny’s request, we had a pink tea party theme, and Tea for Two was perfectly fitting for a double birthday extravaganza.

We hosted the party at home with our family and friends in the afternoon, serving appetizers, beverages, and sweets. I love how all of the components came together, especially when I found a new local consignment shop that sold complete China sets at a seriously RIDICULOUS price. What a score! I’m in love.

Check out how we put together the party, food, drinks, and extra details that made my girls’ 3rd and 1st birthday celebration so special.

Prepping Your Home For the Holidays

When I think about the holidays growing up, I remember the magic. My mom, notorious for her decorating and hosting skills, never made the holidays feel stressful, whether hosting an elegant dinner for our immediate family on Christmas Eve or 80 people for a Winter White holiday extravaganza.

As an adult, I truly appreciate my mom’s willingness to open her home – because with at-home parties means lots of prep, cleaning, and decorating. I used to stay up with my parents until every last beautiful, delicate champagne glass was hand washed and put away, and even after seeing all the work that went into my family’s plentiful parties, I was not averse to hosting. In fact, the hosting gene runs strong and true in my blood!

But I’m also kind of crazy picky when it comes to opening my home to guests. However, since I do love hosting, I’ve come up with a system to clean and prep before the party. Now that I have kids, I want to continue the traditions my parents set of opening my home to holiday parties while creating a stress-free environment for my girls.
