Cupcakes and Pink Lemonade

When I spotted my Yellow Striped and Pink Polka Dot paper straws in the beautiful pictures below, I knew I had to share them with YOU….:)  Perfect setting for an afternoon garden tea with family and friends.

LOVE the cupcakes tucked in those pretty glass dessert dishes.

A pretty lemon slice coated with sweet glazed sugar makes the perfect cupcake topper.  Love the adorable paper straw tucked to the side to make it look like an old fashion soda.  How Cute…!!!!

Beautiful flowers and pretty props add sweet charming touches to this inviting spring and summer tabletop.

It’s time ladies to start planning your tea parties on the porch or an afternoon with friends to share giggles, laughs and yummy sweet treats and cool refreshing drinks.

Sometimes the BEST PARTIES  are the ones you put together quickly and what could be easier than making your favorite batch of CUPCAKES and squeezing a few lemons to make a cool pitcher of Pink Lemonade.…. Grab a pretty table cloth, pick a few fresh flowers and call a friend or two. Time spent together is priceless.
When life gives you lemons……Squeeze something good from them….. Share a Smile…!!!

This beautiful party setting was created by Melissa Lester at A Little Loveliness. Visit her here where you will find many charming ideas and the recipe she used for those pretty cupcakes…..!!!!

Yellow Striped Paper Straws and Pink Dot Paper Straws can be found at The Sugar Diva.

Queen of Teen

YES…it’s true…!!! Our little Carly has turned 13..!!! This party is a VERY SPECIAL one for me since Carly is my granddaughter. She rounded up her friends and made the one hour trip to OUR HOUSE and it was such a joy having all those Giggly Girls around for a couple of days. Yes…they ALL spent the night..!!!

My daughter did a fabulous job on the Party Decorations and most of you know her from PARTY POPS….so let me turn the party over to HER while she guides you through all the events of Carly’s Special Day…

My daughter turned Thirteen  last week, she was so excited to finally be officially called a “Teen” and I am thinking  that I can‘t believe that she is a teen. We decided to play up the “Teen” for a theme and a chance to  get all glamorous like girls like to do.  My sister owns a Salon so she was the first one I called to book a day at the Spa for manicures and pedicures and then had our cousin who is great at styling hair and makeup come in to make the girls over. The girls had he best time and left feeling very special and beautiful.  Serious picture overload here….

The Decorations

Each of the girls got a spa treat box, to keep them energized during a long spa day.

Hair bling and Jewelry. We had some hair accessories for the girls to wear to add some sparkle and each girl got a Crown necklace to feel like a Queen.
The Girls Before.

Then it was OUT TO DINNER…

And Carly was surprised and maybe a little embarrassed when the wait staff came out and placed the Big Mexican Hat on her head…..She took it all in stride and we all had a BLAST…!!! 
She may have been QUEEN for the DAY here, but she will always remain
My Little Princess…:)
