Cinderella Tea Party

You don't need a magic pumpkin, or even a fairy godmother, to get this tea party underway -- just a teapot, delicious cake, and proper invitations. Here's a plan that's got you covered on all three counts. Plus, it includes a few teatime activities based on the story of the young princess who inspired the party: Cinderella, herself.

The Cake

Teatime Table Cake: Topped with a fondant tablecloth and miniature teacups and saucers, this layer cake really sets the mood for a tea party. Plus the tea set makes a nice bonus gift for the birthday child. If you haven't worked with fondant before, don't let the thought of it intimidate you. This recipe is made with marshmallows, resulting in a consistency that's easy to roll and will hold together well when you drape it over the cake.

Tea Party Decorations

Because the table is the focal point of this party, a pretty tablecloth is a must. A vase of flowers (fresh picked, silk, or colorful paper ones) is a nice touch, too. You can even add a sprinkling of silvery or iridescent star confetti as a reminder of the starlit sky Cinderella and the prince danced under right before she fled the ball at the stroke of midnight.

Tea Party Crafts

Lacy Paper Glove Invitations: Cut from paper doilies, these fancy gloves with their lacy trim make fittings invitations for a Cinderella tea.

Pretty Paper Teapots: With this stand-up paper teapot craft, party-goers can take turns pretending to pour each other a spot of tea. You can even set up a crafting station for kids to decorate their own pots during the party.

More Tea Party Activities

Dress in Style: Despite her evil stepsisters' attempts to foil her plans, Cinderella arrived at the ball dressed in a beautiful gown and matching accessories -- thanks to her fairy godmother. For fun, provide a collection of inexpensive costume jewelry and/or decorative hair clips for the girls to choose from to complement their teatime outfits. Then, when the party is over, they can take their picks home as favors.

Try On the Magic Sandal: Before the party, transform an plain flip-flop into a sandal reminiscent of the glass slipper Cinderella lost at the ball by wrapping sparkly ribbon around the straps. You can even glue faux gems onto the ribbon. Set the slipper on a pillow beside a chair and let the girls take turns trying it on.

Blow Bubbles: When Cinderella fans get together for tea, no doubt they'll be bubbling over with excitement. Provide party guests with bubble solution and wands, and their enthusiasm will float sky high. You might even lead them in a round of "Sing, Sweet Nightingale," the song Cinderella sang as she scrubbed the floor and soap bubbles filled the air.
