For chocolate tea cakes: Make brownie mix, only add 1/4 cup of flour to the batter. Drop spoonfuls on a greased pan, sandwich two cookies with frosting and yummy, pretty dainty cookies that took mere minuets to make!   We have also enjoyed rainbow cupcakes in a recent party.   Don't want a lot of sugar??   Cathy made some play dough creations that look yummy enough for any dress-up party!

Every Princess needs a castle!   This is a castle tutorial written in Swedish, so you might not be able to read it but the pictures are self-explanatory.   Lilla-A has detailed plans for you to make your own.

And I am in love!   My girls love flouncy skirts and tutus!   Here is a great tutorial on how to create your own princess dress from Nora of One Simple Bliss.

These tea party sets, made from plastic Easter eggs, buttons and some creativity were made by SungHee – she takes the best pictures!

Dress up and play pretend.   Become a fairy with this simple flower garland tutorial.   I bet my girls would love to make these into head bands for school!

If your kids like putting dresses on themselves, maybe they will like to pretend with a DIY paper doll.   This pattern comes complete with it's own changeable dresses.

My crafty blogging pal Maggy, of Red Ted Art, inspired this collection of royalty fun with mini-toilet-tube crowns, perfect for a dress up party game, or as party favors.   Her blog has tons of ideas!

And Victoria of Subtle Revelry created a fun DIY princess party hat with liquid starch and a whole bunch of string.   Cute!

Put the topping on the dress-up outfit with some home made accessories.   The blog, Tikkie, has a fun kids necklace tutorial explaining how to use take and plastic straws to create beads.

  1. Oh I love the idea of a princess teaparty and those egg tea cups are just the most ADORABLE things EVER! My word. I HAVE TO MAKE SOME!!!!!!! Lovely!

    Thanks for your very kind words about me and Red Ted Art! 🙂


  2. Wow! I just LOVE all these ideas! We also play tea party just about everyday- and I am amazed at how girly the pumpkin can be unprompted at just 2!

    Those crowns are so sweet- stopping by Red Tent next!

  3. Oh to have girls! Nope… no dressing up here… and I really don’t see tea parties in our future… lol – All boys that are all boy. Bummer.

    There’s something so quaint and delicate about a tea party and the pic of your girl depicts it perfectly!

  4. These ideas put my childhood parties to shame. I remember water with crepe paper in to make it coloured, and stale biscuits!

  5. How fun! I only have boys too but I am set on having at least a few tea parties… although I am sure they won’t be “dainty”. We had tons of tea parties with my Grandma when I was a kid and the boys always participated. I think it was only because there was food involved!!!
    I love these ideas and I’m doing a theme w/ fairy tales next week in honor of the royal wedding. Would it be ok if I added a link to this post one day next week?

  6. I’ll definitely share these with my twin nieces. I think I’ll see if my boys want to have a tea party with me and watch the royal wedding. (DVR version: Even my boys don’t get up that early!) I wonder if they’ll go for it! Anyway, great ideas as always!

  7. We love the teacups made from plastic easter egg shells! My daughter is getting very excited about the Royal wedding next week. The children in our school all received leather bookmarks in anticipation of the event – though I think the keepsakes the children will make themselves, like those you suggest will be more meaningful! 😉

  8. So cute! My daughter has a “Fancy Nancy Tea Parties” book and loves to host tea parties with ideas and recipes from there. She likes to make “ladybug cookies” and we often serve the Simply Raspberry Lemonade in her tea set.

  9. I love tea parties! She is sooo cute! Thank you for featuring my plastic easter egg teacups!

  10. The tea party dress up games is very nice and very amazing . In these games is very nice and very fabulous and of course the children like and love too.

  11. If you desire to get a great deal from this piece of writing then you have to apply such methods to your won web site.

  12. But the Play – Station 3 allows you to do it without
    having to pay a dime or using complicated gaming codes.
    But why has got the console failed to reach the same degree of success becasue it is predecessor, Play – Station Portable.
    Still immensely popular today, the sport contains many secrets in fact it is near impossible to finish everything that the sport has to offer on one play through.
