Having proper tea in the garden just sounds fun and fancy!  Maggie, of Via Blossom, was thrilled when her daughter wanted to celebrate her birthday in the garden with a tea party with friends!  Read on to hear more about this delightful party from Maggie herself!  I hope you find lots of great birthday party ideas that you can use yourself~ hosting a garden party is a great way to celebrate in the spring, summer, or fall!

I love the gorgeous color of the dessert table display!

Wow, what a lovely set-up and design for a charming tea party!

Here is what Maggie has to say about hosting her daughter's party...

My daughter's number one wish for her 9th birthday was to have a
sophisticated afternoon tea with her friends. I was ecstatic when 
Gaby told me that she wanted a Tea Party Themed birthday.
 I must say, that a scrumptious Tea Party was at the top
 of my wish list growing up. So, what
a blessing to be able to make my girl’s wish come true.
My mother’s tropical back yard was the perfect setting
 for the occasion. Flowers were an integral part of the décor. 
I juxtaposed different flower patterns in the cupcake stands,
 cupcake wrappers, table runner and banner to create a vintage 
feel. Gaby’s gorgeous aqua bedroom chest became the dessert
table which displayed a “croquembouche” (or tower of 
cream puffs held together with caramel) and mini-desserts
 like brownie pops, sugar cookies in delicate paper flowers
called Petite Blossom Cups, French macarons and of course 
homemade tea. The little guests wore pretty hats and
sat in a long table decorated with teacups and cupcake stands
showcasing delicious Cupcakes. I loved how the vanilla mini
looked in the pink plastic tea cups. All in all, Gaby had a 
lovely afternoon of fun and sophistication with her friends.

What an absolutely lovely day, Maggie and Cristina!  Thank you for sharing these fabulous birthday party ideas with us!
