A Cupcake and Tea Party Sneak Peek

Ahh! :) :) It's almost the big day!! Wunkie's Vintage Cupcake and Tea party! I have found a few more wonderful treasures for it, and I've been playing around with my new Cricut Expression for the decorations! Here's a small taste of what will go down on the actual day!

Isn't that little tea set SO CUTE?! One of the perks of having a mom who works in the NYC! I've seen some wonderful parties all over blogland (this one is my fav!) that paired up paper doilies and mason jars for a darling look.  I decided to incorporate them everywhere! You will see! In keeping with the vintage yet "updated" theme, I paired up soft pink with a lime green colors throughout.  Isn't my apothecary jar gorgeous?! :) Picked her up at TJMaxx last week for only $9.99!! 

 The girls will be making cardstock fans for the tea party, that is my sample! The cute retro-ish mini glasses are from Ikea for $2.99 per pack of six!  The paper straws were a bit of a splurge but totally worth it! They are from The Sugar Diva as is my pink and white baker's twine. That vintage crystal candy jar was a thrift store find for $2! 

Saw this banner and loved the combination of the paper doilies with fabric.  I decided to make my own version and used some pink tulle and fabric remnants I had from another project.  I put my Cricut to work and came up with a cute banner.  :)  Lighting is off, since it's 1am and I'm trying not to wake this cute puppy up. haha
Here is a close up of the detail on the banner: (yes, this is the "birthday" part)

And here is my mock smaller version of the tablescape I will put together for the big day!

Please disregard the messy couch behind it! I'm still working on the backdrop!  Sidenote: if you're lucky enough, like me, to have a friend with an insane amount of vintage and handmade doilies, tablecloths and linens, BY ALL MEANS- be shameless like I was today and take as many as she offers! (Thanks Victoria! <3)  She made me a cup of tea, too.  THAT is a friend! ;)  Enjoy your day!
