The inspiration for this wildflower tea party began when I saw the darling Lavender Elephant Tea Set from Pottery Barn Kids. I knew I wanted to create a rustic chic girl’s party based on this piece – and the ideas started flowing instantly!
I loved the idea of playing off the cute elephant teapot, so I created a similar icon that we used throughout the party’s design elements, combined with shades of lavender. I also wanted to play up the backyard garden idea because it’s the perfect setting for a spring or summer party. We brought in a Bohemian feel in a subtle way with fresh flowers, feathers, leather, burlap, plus a fun guide for making floral crowns for the little party guests!
Once we had the theme and color palette set, it was easy to create fun recipes that would fit the look and style of this tea party. We came up with a dessert table filled with lavender cake pops, cupcakes, French macarons, elephant-shaped sugar cookies, homemade flower-shaped marshmallows and, of course, a lavender ombré birthday cake!
Here are my favorite pieces to get the perfect party look:
It was so much fun and such an honor to be on set with the Pottery Barn Kids team! I hope you enjoy the Walk in the Wildflowers theme as much as I enjoyed working on it.
