When asked to plan and create a tea party for a 7-year-old girl's birthday, Myriam C. Knepper and Lourdes C. Henning of MLC Event Planning [1] added some shabby-chic and vintage decor items to the theme to set a magical and sweet celebration that's any girlie-girl's cup of tea. From fancy dress-up stations to gorgeously delicious desserts, check out all the cleverly classic details below.

Glammed-Up Milk Bottles

The wrapped burlap with touches of lace and buttons turned an average milk bottle into something much more memorable.

Her Dress-Up Station

Guests were invited to get fancy with dress-up stations. The girls' version included pearls, earrings, necklaces, hats, mini straw hats, purses, feather boas, watches, ties, and makeup. MLC Event Planning [7] said one of their favorite parts of the party was when the kids started to dress up and take pictures using the items as party props.
