This was a birthday party I designed for my little girl a few years ago when she was turning five. At the time, one of her most favorite movie was Mulan. That inspired me to create a Chinese Tea Party to celebrate her special day!
Inspired by beautiful cherry blossom gardens found in the Orient, I used different shades of pink linens and incorporated various paper lanterns and paper parasol umbrellas to create the perfect setting!
I took a sketch of a cake I had in mind to a local Chinese bakery and they made the most beautiful cake ever! I loved that they followed the sketch to a T and placed each cherry blossom exactly as I had drawn on the sketch. I made a last minute phone call to the bakery and asked them to write "Happy Birthday" in Chinese...I absolutely loved how it turned out! I also loved the napkin holders I found that were in the shape of a traditional Chinese dress...an adorable addition to the table setting! Guests wore gorgeous traditional Chinese dresses and were each presented with a beautiful paper parasol as they arrived to the party.
Fun loving mommy of two adorable little girls! Inspired by all things beautiful, feminine and girly. Absolutely passionate about creating and designing events that are filled with fun, fantasy and tremendous aesthetic splendor!
