Teddi's World

    Teddi-Rose’s 5th Birthday- Mermaid style

    Just last week we had the most wonderful day celebrating the princess of the family’s birthday and it really was fabulous. The weather was perfect, sunshine all day surrounded by family and friends and a very special guest. Here I am going to share a pure mermaid party heaven.

    We were so lucky to be able to use an incredible lady who styles the most beautiful party’s I have ever seen, not only is she super talented she is so lovely to work with and her attention to detail still blows me away. Kim from ‘My little tea party’ created an amazing mermaid and underwater themed picnic with the most gorgeous decorations.

    The tables were decorated with the sweetest little shells, vases of fresh wild flowers, mermaid plates, mermaid themed milk bottles underneath vintage style netting. The table was surrounded with  dusky pink square cushions which were just perfect for those little bottoms to sit for their picnic.

    All our guests were so generous and Teddi was given some wonderful presents My little tea party provided honestly the most wonderful vintage lace tipi, again decorated with such detail. It really was the finishing touch to the picnic area and a great place to put all the presents.

    We decided that lunch boxes were such an easy way to make sure all the children fill their bellies. They did not disappoint with these beautiful personalised lunch boxes. It made life so much easier with each one having the guests name on and a lovely message along with the Teddi Rose’s name, which she loved.  All I had to do was fill them, so simple and so effective.

    All good things must come to an end but it was saving the best until last…..Of course the tradition of party bags is now bigger than ever so we decided to do something a little extra special. Each cotton party bag was personalised again with the little guests name, hand tied with ribbon and displayed in a beautiful whit wicker basket. They were filled with mermaid tangle brushes, bubbles, chocolate coins, mermaid lipgloss and hand on heart the most amazing lollipops I have ever seen. They were by “Willow and Boo’ and were just so beautiful that I begged Teddi not to eat it but of course that made her want it even more.

    Special guest

    Now it cant be a princess party without a princess…… Once upon a wish events uk certainly made Teddi’s wish come true. After falling in love with Ariel at Disneyland last Christmas Teddi was desperate for Ariel to come to her party. She was wonderful and I’ve never seen Teddi so happy. She made the party such a breeze for me and held it all together. So many wonderful games, singing and even glitter tattoos which everyone was so happy about. She arrived in the most beautiful shiny tail and was kind to change half way through into a fabulous princess dress which really kept the magic alive. It wouldn’t of been the same without her and even I felt like I was in magical dream. Just perfect.

    Something that some people may say is the most important… The Dress. I was let down last minute and struggled to find something that really fitted into what Teddi really wanted, I was so happy when I found the incredible “Melies Tutus” within in 24 hours of messages her Teddi’s gorgeous Tutu was made and on its way. When it arrived it did not disappoint it was stunning, the colours were perfect and matched the party like it was meant to be. A quick trip to Asda to find a mermaid swimming costume and Teddi was all dressed and ready to PARTY!!

    Everyone made the day so special and it really will be a party we wont forget.

    Love from Lo X
