A Tea Party Birthday


My little girl turned five this weekend and we celebrated with a super girly tea party!


I was inspired by this balloon wreath tutorial but ended up having to do mine differently because I couldn't find a straw wreath form or greening pins. Instead I used straight pins and a foam wreath form.  It is such a happy little wreath, it seriously makes my heart swoon!






We served little sandwiches, of course!



And we dressed up as ladies and gents all set for tea!


I can't believe it's been five years since our lives changed forever.


They grow up fast, don't they?

On an unrelated note, Jen at IHeart Organizing kindly featured my kitchen today on her blog.  Click here to check it out.  I am thrilled to be featured by one of my favorite organizing divas!

Thanks so much for visiting The Complete Guide to Imperfect Homemaking.  I'd be honoured if you would take a second to "like" me on Facebook or Follow me on twitter!

    LOVED your kitchen. I think I was drooling at one point! ;) Totally envious of your amazing drawer space and ability to keep things pretty with FIVE children happily living in it. I have three 9,7 and 4, I am still trying to get organized..sigh. I think some of us were just born with that knack and others of us have to really try hard...lol! Your kitchen is lovely and I look forward to perusing your blog too :)

    Blessings!
