The young host held her tea party for her friends at Cylburn Arboretum in their divine white Southern-style room. It was exquisite! My Flower Box helped with the gorgeous flowers that were provided for the event. The flowers were the perfect embellishment for this sweet tea birthday party!


The tea party consisted of 7 little boys and girls giggling, smiling and dressed up for high tea.


The long table displayed in the bay window of the room was sitting under mini-parasols covered in flowers.

The party did not stop after tea time! A “Bow Ties & Bit Hats” area for dress-up play was set up on one side of the room. The kids loved posing for pictures and getting all dressed up for each other!

A tea stand, where the children tried different sweet teas and sugars, graced the other side of the room, as well.


It was a simply adorable day, as the little girls in their hats and the boys in their bow ties sipped their tea cups, pinkies up! They loved trying all of the fun nibbles on the table and had an absolute ball together. This birthday girl was such a wonderful host!
