Party Recap

A complete DIY Tea Party 1st birthday with no pre-fab party materials. Everything was made by mommy for under $75!

- Invitations were created using a Cricut machine and Sure Cuts A Lot software.
- Cake was covered and decorated using modeling chocolate (much easier & tastier than fondant!).
- All serving ware, teapots, plates, etc. were things from around the house.
