Cupcake tea party via Kara's Party Ideas - THE place for all things party!

Lyndsey and I hosted our Cupcake Par-Tea this weekend! It was a big success! Here’s a lot of photo’s from the whole event {thanks for letting me use some of your photo’s Lyndsey}. Hope you enjoy! To see more be sure and check out Lyndsey’s blog, Kitchen Doughdough!
I’ve always LOVED when Lyndsey came to me with the idea of having a cupcake party I just had to jump on board!

I’ve been collecting cupcake memorabillia for years now…so with this party I finally had a chance to use a lot of it as decor etc {if I ever have a little girl, I’m going to use it all in her bedroom and make it a ‘cupcake bakery’ themed room}.

Each setting had a cupcake place mat {I got them at target last year}, a cupcake charger {actually, a cupcake plate}, a pink plate, a tea setplate and bowl {we purchased all the tea set items at ikea}, a tea cup place card holder, a cupcake place card, tiny tea set silverware wrapped in a cupcake napkin & cupcake napkin ring {I bought the napkins and cupcake plates at hobby lobby}, a glass that was

As soon as all the guests arrived Lyndsey did a fun cupcake demo in her kitchen. She showed everyone how to pipe frosting onto cupcakes. She had bags and decorating tips for everyone to frost their own cupcake

Some of the ladies decorating their cupcakes…Here’s a close up of the adorable table cloth we had on the drink table. Lyndsey’s mom made it {Pots and Pins}. It was sooo cute! Thanks for sending it Nan!…And now…sitting down to have our ‘Cupcake Tea’…A closer look at one of the napkin rings {that’s lip gloss Lyndsey made some really fun cupcakes. She spelled out ‘PARTEA‘ with And the others were strawberry lemonade cupcakes {with secret ingredient, coconut milk! yum!} They were DE-LISH! To see the recipes go to her blog, Kitchen doughdoughAnd here’s the cupcakes I made. They’re chocolate sour cream with peanut butter cream cheese frosting. I’m putting the recipe and details on my cupcake blog, Kara’s Cupcakes
The little display we put out on the front entry table…
Our invite, and a cute cuppy frame that said, ‘WELCOME TO OUR CUPCAKE PAR-TEA‘…A close up of the tea cup place card holders…Here’s Lyndsey’s brownie pops! She put them in a cute flower pot and wrote ‘par-tea’ on top. So adorable. And look what she used as sticks….
I finally made some ‘Bakerella‘ cupcake pops! I have been wanting to make these for a while now. It was the perfect occasion…
This is what was hanging above the table. Lyndsey made these cute lanterns into cupcakes with sequins and cupcake liners!… Here’s a close up of one of the cupcake sugar cookies I made. I put them in little bags and tied them with cupcake ribbon…I made this jumbo cupcake for the main centerpiece {and stuck a matching jumbo ‘hello cupcake’ topper on top}…The door prizes we had drawings for…
Cupcake notebooks, cuppy paper, assorted cupcake stamps, cuppy cards, and a few other things {found everything at Michaels!}…Lyndsey’s mom gave us the idea to make mini cake platters for the guests to take home…she had a cupcake party up in Seattle a few weeks ago and made them for all her guests. They were really easy to make, and look like they’re store bought! I made them out of candle holders and glass plates {glued together with e6000}. The cupcake shown is actually a box. I bought them for the guests to put their cupcake earrings in {you can see the cupcake earrings I made in the very top photo}…
Two of our beautiful guests holding their cake platters {with cupcakes to take home of course}…
And here’s Lyndsey and I posing after the party was all said and done…
Lyndsey made our adorable cupcake aprons! They had cute sequin cupcakes on top and fun cupcake fabric across the bottom. Thanks Lyndsey, you’re the best!
