Hannah’s 5th Birthday Tea Party

Standard

Hannah turned 5 on August 31st and to celebrate this special birthday milestone we planned a sweet little tea party with just a few of her closest girl-friends. I love planning parties for my little people but I knew that this year with a brand new baby things would need to be kept low-key. So instead of the focus being on the party we kept the focus on Hannah turning 5 and what a special even that was. I typed up a little countdown to her birthday and Hannah loved getting to cross off each 31 days of anticpation.

We had planned to purchase Hannah a new bicycle for her gift so when Daisy was born and Brian had time off, we took the kids to the pathways around our home several days in a row and Hannah learned to ride without training wheels in just 2 days! This was such an exciting moment for her and made the gift of a new bike even more special.

Because her birthday was on a Saturday we held a little morning tea party for her friends. They dressed up as princesses and fairies and enjoyed personalised star-wand decorating, strawberry milkshakes, yummy cupcakes to decorate and swirly rainbow cake to eat. It was a very nice morning. Simple and sweet.

The next day, family came around and we celebrated again with more cake and more presents. And lots of photos.

Happy 5th Birthday dearest girl. You are amazing xx

  1. Andi, this is such a lovely post and your party for Hannah was perfect. I love that it was a small affair and you kept the focus on the huge milestone, and of coarse your beautiful girl. Hannah looks absolutely delighted with the party, if all of those huge beaming smiles are anything to go by 🙂
    The countdown chart is a great idea and really builds the anticipation doesn’t it?
    I love that shot of Blake kissing Hannah. How sweet is that? and the family of five shot is lovely. xx

  2. Lovely party Andi, it looks perfect. We had a small tea party for Ruby this year too (snap! haha) but I definitely struggled with how to make it more about the milestone than the party.. Something to work on!
    I love the family photo, it’s beautiful, and also the photo of Hannah under Daisy’s wrap – a nice reminder that big is still quite little 🙂 or vice versa. Or something like that, ha.
    Sorry we didn’t get to hang with you guys the other day – next time for sure. x
