We enter Addy’s 5th Birthday Tea Party. Addy requested a Tea Party Theme and her Mama delivered big time!
I’ll mention it now that this post has an extraordinary amount of photos.

Auntie Katie arrived to help with the party preparations. She was in charge of the balloons for the photo op!
Aren’t these the cutest paper tea cups and saucers?!
Jamie baked and decorated this amazing cake with layers of different flavors. Addy’s favorite color right now is yellow and she wanted yellow and pink at the party.
This is the teapot piñata (/pɪnˈjɑːtə/) that Jamie constructed. It is filled with treats that will be released once it is broken with a stick or bat.
Peanut butter and jelly mini sandwiches, rolled tortilla cheese and lunchmeat bites, bagel bites, cucumber sandwich bites, egg salad sandwich bites.
I loved this idea of bacon, lettuce and tomato bites with small cut out slices of bread.
West Coast Chicken Salad Croissant sandwiches, veggie cups and fruit cups.
Look closely and you’ll see that the strawberries have pretzel tea cup handles on them!

First we had our savory course.
After savories it was time to break the piñata open. No blindfolds for this age group.
The break open moment caught by Laura with her phone!
Time for cake and sweets!
Dan made the macarons! The lemon macarons were incredible!
Have you seen this Safari book? The animals featured are in motion. Photicular.
I wish I would have gotten a photo of the three pretty dresses that Addy will be able to twirl in from Uncle Josh and Auntie Lolo. The musical jewelry box was also a hit.
After the party was over and most guests had left mom and dad remembered they forgot to give Addy the present they bought for her. So much going on…
She was happy to have a new bike that is a better size for her.
Happy 5th birthday Addy. Baba and Gramps love you and we thank our God that you are surrounded by family and friends who love you, too. You are a quick learner and eager to help.
