Cupcakes & Tea Parties

Hello sweet friends! So lovely of you to stop by! 

Would you like to see what I've been up to the past two weeks?

Well, besides the not so fun part of cleaning out children's closets, working in the yard, and reorganizing the office and my little studio. I have been a busy gal working on a fun DIY project for my daughter Vivian's bedroom.

She is now officially sleeping in her big girls bed. We have said "Bye Bye" to her baby crib.

I splurged on this FABULOUS pink tulle ruffle bedskirt from Garnet Hill.

Tulle bedskirt 


Once I took her crib out of the room I was on to the next project.

Decorating a $10 table and chair set I found at a garage sale.

I wanted to turn this into something really cute. So I brainstormed until I came up with the perfect idea. I had several gorgeous petticoats from my event that were not being used, and I wanted to decorate it with a cupcake theme. I own a few cupcake pieces of Jenny & Aaron of Everyday is a Holiday, and thought how precious would it be to decorate her table and chairs with their yummy sweet images! 

After 2 weeks….

It turned out so sweet & magical!

I decoupaged the cupcake and dessert images onto the table and chairs.

I took the sherbert colored petticoats and made them into chair and table skirts.  



Vivi's new table and chairs look charming and perfect in her room.

Needless to say my daughter is OVERJOYED with her cupcake table set. THANK YOU Jenny & Aaron!!!!

Now she is ready for her first tea party and you my friends get to be a part of Vivi's first tea party in her big girl room!!!!


Vivi wants to greet you.

Would you like a cupcake? They are sprinkled with extra sugar just for you!

Perhaps you might want one of Vivi's sugar cookies? 

All the tea sets are full and ready to pour.

The little bunnies are enjoying their tea. 


Vivi invited her dolls to join us.

What a gracious hostess to help push in her dolls chair.

Would you care for a delicious cookie? 

Perhaps a cupcake also. Here let me help you.

You must be thirsty. Let me pour you a cup of tea.


I didn't mean to neglect you. You must be starving. Take a bite…you'll love it!


Cindy says this tea is the BEST she's ever had!!!!



Hmmm…who's at the door???

Grant!!! The Cupcake thief!


Sorry says Vivi. Your not allowed to crash my party and steal my cupcakes.

Grant…if you want a cupcake than you must sit at the table, and you have to dress up. Here….wear my crown for the special occasion.


Would you like some tea?




Mmmmm…this taste good! 


Knock* Knock*

Oh my heavens…who could it be now???


So sweet of you to stop by. Please stay awhile and join us for some tea and cupcakes.


 Wow! This has been the best tea party ever! Thank you Mommy for my pretty table and chairs.

Thank YOU everyone for stopping by and taking a peek at my tea party.



Ok, all these faux cupcakes having me craving REAL ones! hee! hee!

Looks like Betty Crocker and I have a date this week. πŸ˜‰


Wishing you all the opportunity to let your mind daydream, imagination soar, and to become inspired as my children have done for me. 

Have a fabulous & creative week!

Hi Jenn, this post makes me want my little girl back so badly!! They grow up and leave so fast, we always had tea parties and teddy bear picnics,now she is a grown up married lady!I have to admit she lives across the street from us so that helps a little!! Enjoy every minute with Miss Viv and Grant they will be grown ups in a blink!! Have fun, Michelle E.

Hi Kay! Thanks for your super sweet comment! YES!!! I did use the Sealah tape! Its fabulous! I should become your spokesmodel! hee! hee! XOXO

Possibly the sweetest post of the sweetest kids in the sweetest room EVER! If I EVER get a grand-daughter I’m going to make her a table like that…or else, you could make them and sell them!! Love it all! xo, Nan

Well Vivian’s room is an absolute dream room! She must so enjoy that room every moment of the day. I would pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming! The table came out pefect. It fits right into her room and Jenny and Aaron’s art meshes perfectly with the peticoats. Brava brava!

You have created beautiful special memories for your gorgeous family – and captured adorable pictures of them! xo

precious, although I am absolutely gutted those cupcakes are imposter cakes, I was convinced they were right until you mentioned Betty Crocker! Rachaelxo

Sweetie, everything is just delightful as can be! Such gorgeous pictures and I love everything you’ve been doing. Just delious. You have such a creative mind and you make everything so pretty. Your kids are adorable too. But you already know that!
July will be here before we know it. Can’t wait!
Big hugs,

such a beautiful post! A room that all little girls – and not so little – dream of :o)
I need to start working on my little humbugs room soon. Though I think I’ll leave it until next year. I have *plans*, could take some time ;o)

What an AMAZING room!! I absolutely love this. So dreamy, whimsical and pretty. I wish I had a room like that while growing up, I would have been in heaven! Hahaha, actually I wish I had a room like that -right now-.
Your children are adorable! πŸ™‚

Oh Jenn this was so much fun. You did a wonderful job on the room and all the furnishings. Vivi is such a lucky little lady and Grant is so much fun to watch. I am so reminded of my childhood of perhaps 60 years ago when I would be wanting a tea party playmate and had no one to share with so my little brother would grudgingly agree to participate until his boy pals would appear and he would be out of there and of course not until he had made a mess out of my tidy little party room. BOYS! Yuk………

Oh Jenn!!! How beautiful!!! I am sure Vivi just *adores* her sweet new table and chairs! The tea party is just perfect!

True eye candy!! Inspiration to renovate my girls room! Thank you for sharing…
The Vintage Barn


I can only say that May God keep blessin your mind with such amazing inspiration….wish you could come to Brazil! xoxoxo from Brazil!

OK….I need that bed skirt for my daughter. We are re-doing their rooms. WHERE IN THE HECK IS THE LINK FOR THAT SWEET SKIRT? I went on the site but I can’t find it? OMG….it is beautiful!!!!
P.S. who did you amazing blog banner? I read my blogs in Bloglines and very seldom do I click on a blog to see a banner…I love it!


Oh Jenn, that is so adorable. I just love what you did with the petticoats on the bed, table and chairs, oh and let’s not forget the beautiful light hanging down. So dainty.I can’t wait to have another granddaughte. My dil would never let me do things like that in Theresa’s room,maybe Chris, my daughter will let me turn hers into a fairy tale room like she had when she was young. Such a delight seeing all your beautiful things and I have not forgotten the pages I promised—just health problems keep getting in the way. And I’m working on things for a Cancer Aid bingo in 2 weeks. Hugs, Pat

This is the most darling room in the UNIVERSE! Every single detail is wildly amazing!!! Your sweet VIVI is one precious girl with a room to match. πŸ™‚

Oh Jennifer! This is the sweetest post!! What little girl wouldn’t love this room? You are so clever with the table, chairs, room decorations, etc. I think this room should make its way into another magazine! Looking forward to meeting you at the Creative Connection Event!

Wow! I have never seen anything so beautiful! Way to go Mom!! Come Link up with me at
I’d be so thrilled…

Vivi’s room is so full of whimsy and magic! I know she must love it! This was such a beautiful post, Jenn!
